Getting fit on a budget
Not everyone has the funds to pay for a personal trainer for every workout session. If you fall into that category, we suggest at least starting your journey with a session or two to set you up on the right track.
Many trainers will even have special coaching packages that include monthly check-ins but is essentially self-guided.
I am sure your trainer will suggest this, but keep track of each of your workouts, weight lifting progress and calorie burn to be able to reference with these check-ins or to map your progress.
Additionally, instead of measuring your success on the scale, keep logs of your measurements and those changes. The measurements I track are waist, hips, thighs, and upper arms. But of course, each person and their goals are individual so you’ll want to confirm with your trainer or coach.
This week has brought a ton of conversation surrounding immigration and family separation at the border. Many photos of distraught children being separated from their families are circulating the internet.
First Lady Melania Trump made an unannounced visit to the Mexican border in Texas. The media was critical of her wardrobe choice for the visit. She wore a jacket that said, "I really don't care, do u?" on her walk from her car to the plane.
The media identified the jacket as insensitive. A spokeswoman for Melania Trump said, "it's a jacket." Probably not the best choice in outerwear.
Questions to consider:
Is your wardrobe important? Why?
Does your wardrobe say something about you? If so, what do you want it to say?
Why does this organization need you?

Zeycan (zeycan_rochelle) I have a fresh, worldly perspective from my unique background of being biracial and living in both Turkey and different states of the United States. My love of travel has also taken me to 35 different countries. Combined with my international school education, this gives me fresh eyes and mind to see world issues from different perspectives and empathy to sympathize with things I was able to experience from abroad firsthand. The unique experience makes me relatable to many and that’s an asset to the organization because I can draw more unlikely people in sharing the organization’s core beliefs and principles while expanding our platform to the masses.
Zeycan is confident in her ability to represent the organization well. She shares what makes her unique and a valuable asset for any pageant.
