There's a lot of stress out there, and to handle it, you just need to believe in yourself; always go back to the person that you know you are, and don't let anybody tell you any different, because everyone's special and everyone's awesome.
Looking back isn't going to help you. Moving forward is the thing you have to do.
You have to stay true to yourself and where you're coming from, and sometimes people see you in a different light, but you have to take it in and try to be positive about anything.
Before competition, I always take an ice bath to make my body feel more refreshed. Then I always have coffee with a little cream and sugar. It's a superstitious thing.
In gymnastics, everything is a competition. You want to have your hair look the best and your makeup look the best. You want to be the best, and you want to have the prettiest leotard.
If you're following your dreams, you're doing something you love and that you believe in yourself for.
The thing with gymnastics is people don't always know the events. So they'll ask me about the rings, and I'll have to say, 'Women don't do that.' Or they'll use the wrong words, like horse instead of vault. They get confused.
You never really think about what happens after the Olympics - you're just like, 'I want to compete. I want to do well' and thinking about that. After it all happened, it was such a whirlwind. I've gotten to do so many amazing things. My favorite thing was getting into acting.
Every single day, I get asked by people to do 'the face,' so I'm bringing it along with me now for the rest of my life.
For our team leotards, we get about ten to choose from to actually compete in at the Olympics.
I did a 'Hart of Dixie' episode, and I was so excited for that.
I just know that all my fans who are with me and going along for the ride, that's what means the most to me.
I really like Rihanna. And I actually do like Justin Bieber. I like the Weeknd. I like Katy Perry.
I was just used to being in shape, and getting out of it was really difficult for me.
I didn't want people to think of me as someone who wasn't impressed with a silver medal, because obviously that's a huge accomplishment, and I was so happy. It was more about me just being not impressed with falling at the Olympics in my last event.
