If you are going to “cheat” or indulge on a less than healthy meal during pageant prep, my best advice is to use portion control and balance to stay on track.
I love using a calorie or macro counting app to help me keep an eye on my consumption and map out my daily food plans.
If I know I’m going to my favorite restaurant, I will be very healthy and light in my other meals of the day in order to not overextend past my calorie goals. I’ll also ask for my to-go box to come with my meal and I immediately separate it into a reasonable portion so I’m not tempted.
Overall, simply planning in advance and being mindful can make a huge difference when it comes to enjoying your favorite foods.
"New and improved"
In the same week that President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Russian Defense Ministry released videos of new and improved nuclear weaponry.At least one these nuclear weapons is said to have unlimited range. Many are calling for new nuclear arms treaties with Russia to ensure safety for all, but with strained relations between the countries, the next steps forward are uncertain.
A heated interview
On Thursday, popular television talk show, The View, hosted Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro. What was supposed to be a civil discussion quickly turned into a heated argument over President Trump and the state of the country. After Judge Pirro told Whoopi Goldberg that she has "Trump Derangement Syndrome," Goldberg shot back with disappointment and anger over the rhetoric used to describe immigrants.
The discussion evolved into yelling and arguing between the womenand an abrupt ending by commercial break. Goldberg later explained that she tries not to lose her cool but does not like being accused of being hysterical.

How do you handle confrontation?
Handling confrontation well is an important skill to have. Unfortunately, titleholders are sometimes put in uncomfortable situations during their reigns. Our favorite answer:
Marisa Pelham (marisapelham)I handle confrontation by staying calm, remembering what I believe in and actually listening to the other person! During most confrontations, people listen to respond instead of actually listening to hear what the other person has to say! It’s important to be able to see things from another perspective different than your own.
Marisa gives a wise and title-worthy response. This question is a great opportunity to show the judges your maturity and problem solving skills.
Today's Titleholder of the Day is Sarah Gibbs, World Imperial Beauties International Cover Girl 2017-2018! Her pageant tip is:
"Always be yourself. The judges will love you for who you truly are and if they don't, that's okay."
