Gym Talk: Amanda Holt
Friday, March 25, 2011
Hey everybody, it's Amanda Holt and I'm soooo excited to tell you about our last week!! 

On Monday we had just gotten back from Alaska and then Tuesday was our day off!  We got onto page 79 for practice this week so we could kill it at conference!! Thursday was St. Patrick's Day but it was also Maillie's 22nd birthday! So for the whole day we all dressed up in green for practice!  And at school Steph Wright and Jess Lieblich wrote about the importance of eating a nutritional breakfast and it's up all over our fitness center for the whole month!! Super awesome!  Friday we headed off to conference in our rock star bus finishing off our unbreakable 2011 tour!!  When we got there we were a tad intimidated about how many teams were there but we got back into our page 79 and got into our bubble and had a lot of good things came out on the floor! We had a lot of awesome sticks!! Vault and bars rocked it out and where sticking left and right! Everybody killed their floor routines! On floor we all stayed on our feet and then on beam Jess Lieblich rocked it out and got our highest score on beam!! Maillie had an awesome beam routine, one of her bests this year!

We had a lot of awesome things to recognize about conference, we learned a lot about ourselves and what we will need to do to at practices so we can rock it out at nationals with the team we know we are!! During conference we had a recruit come in for athletic day on Saturday. We had so much fun with her! We took her all over campus telling her all about our team and how super cool we are and you'll never meet a team like ours! We took her to the boardwalk and watched Red Riding Hood! If you haven't seen it, it was super good and it is worth the money!! We feel that even though the whole team wasn't there to meet her we feel we put a good word in and hope we made a big enough impact on her that she'll want to come back! Come back next week to hear about how our training for NATIONALS goes!!!!
