Another day closer to being a jockey-Sept. 9, 2011

      Woooo, so all in all, the past couple of days has been kicking my butt! I'm finishing up my first quarter of sophomore year, will be halfway done by October 15! Come on, Michaela, you have exactly one year of school left, you CAN DO IT! I've been trying to get a little more rest than usual, this week has been hectic and busy. I have been to the gym every night this week, except tonight. I was actually taking a break from all this schoolwork to write this blog, and get all of y'all updated!

      I'm so excited, because when I graduate, I'm heading to Laurel Park to meet with a couple people and get some experience before applying for NARA. Hopefully, all will turn out right!That will really help a lot, and get my foot in with the right people, but as far as now I will just keep in touch with them and focus on staying in shape and getting this school done. High school diploma comes first, a long with doing my every day training! It isn't as hard as what I thought, because I love doing it so much, but I can't wait to get on the track routine every morning.

      Tomorrow I am taking a rest from school and going to spend the day with Mom (whom I haven't seen in about a month now), that will be great to see one of the top supporters on the list! There isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't call and see how her future jockey is doing. I think it is really just now hitting her about how dangerous the sport is, she is being just like any caring mom and asking about the basics of safety. Gotta love her for it though :) Dad is currently in the hospital (back surgery and dimensia) so he can't talk every day, but when he can it sure is a highlight of the day. He is the only other horse person in my direct family, so he is tons of support and help and advice. He has helped so much with my training and weight management, it is unreal! It's going to be hard to be at the track without him, but his love and advice will be on the back of the thoroughbred with me, past every marker pole.

     So I got to thinking, wasn't Tyler Kaplan the youngest student at NARA? He was 15 or 16 right?? If that's the case, then I will be the 2nd youngest student, if no one else gets there at 16 before me! :)) I have gained some muscle weight, so am currently 117, so that can't stay that way. I will come back down to about 110, especially before applying. There is still some time to get that off, can't be too strict right now. I am just focusing more on cardio and keeping my legs strong and in tip top shape. In just a couple months, I will get more in depth about shedding more fat off (there isn't much but enough to get rid of lol ) Well, I hear my que to come help with something! Y'all all have a fantastic weekend, make the best of it!
