Gold medalist Gabby Douglas is crisscrossing the country, promoting her book.

Douglas describes "Raising the Bar" as a big scrapbook with pictures, quotes, thoughts and memories.

She said she hasn't been back to the gym since winning gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London but is headed back soon.

"It's going to be hard, but I'm ready for it," she said.

"I think I'm going to ease on in to it," she added, laughing.

And she hasn't ruled out the 2016 Olympics.

"I hope to see myself in another Olympics, and there's so many great opportunities that I could be doing, acting, producing, hosting," she said.

The 17-year-old also hasn't ruled out college, though she said it's hard for gymnasts to do that while they're still competing.
