It's Monday and that Means Gabby Douglas is Back to Work

Like the rest of us, Gabby Douglas returned to work this Monday after the weekend.

For Gabby and coach Liang Chow work means Gabby has returned to the gym to resume training and for Gabby the "weekend" has been a several month hiatus while she has been touring, walking red carpets. making guest appearances on  The Vampire Diaries among other things.

 Chow, who also coached 2008 Silver Medalist, Shawn Johnson, told the Associated Press Gabby is excited to return to training after her long hiatus.

"She can't wait any longer."  He said.

Gabby's next goal is gearing up for Rio and Chow said that even as the all-around champion and team gold medalist, he doesn't think she's reached her limit. Even during the whirlwind of her life in the months after winning in London, Gabby still dreams of doing more.

"She's the kind of person who wants to be achieving,"  Chow said. "She wants to feel good about her improvement and her goal setting. That's the attitude Gabby is about and now she can set out a goal and achieve it, through the sport."

Gabby's next goal is to get back into fighting shape. Chow didn't say much else besides he thought a 2014 comeback is a definite possibility.

This just in, I think Gabby Douglas and I should trade jobs.
