Level3_Tiff

 

I’m having an Oprah moment (LOL) and want to give away some of my favorite things during August, my birthday month! We’re kicking off the first week with an amazing pair of Limited Edition workout/yoga/pilates/bar/date with hubby/dancing with girlfriends/hanging at home leggings by LEVEL 3 ACTIVE, founded by my powerhouse girlfriend Melissa Rountree. She’s a fellow multi-passionate entrepreneur (thanks for the term, Marie Forleo) and after years of teaching fitness classes and never really finding the perfect unique workout clothes– she decided to design her own! Melissa selects fun, stylish, limited edition prints so you won’t see yourself coming and going in the gym. She also has thought-provoking statement tank and tee’s, tunics, sweatshirts, jumpsuits and MORE! If you like to stand out in your workout class and want to show off how good your bootie looks after all those squats, then you will love her leggings. They fit fantastic! $75. VALUE.

DRINK UP:Importance of Hydration [Giveaway]

PGF_tiff_treadmill

Ok, ok – so I may be sounding like a broken record, but I don’t care! Well, it’s actually because I do care. Many of you are probably feeling lousy and I want you all to feel energetic and fabulous. Last year when I felt like I was living life sluggish as if I was walking through mud, my holistic doc told me I was chronically dehydrated.WHAT? I thought I was diligent with drinking water. NOT.  If I wasn’t drinking enough, there’s a good chance many of you aren’t either. Dehydration is a precursor for many diseases. Think of it as a stagnant puddle of water where fungus and bacteria thrives. YUCK. 

Why is it so important to stay hydrated?

Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work correctly. For example, your body uses water to maintain its temperature, remove waste, and lubricate joints. Water is needed for optimal health.

How does your body lose water?

Water makes up more than half of your body weight. You lose water each day when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even when you breathe. You lose water even faster when the weather is really hot (I got sick late August and obviously still not used to the heat of the Texas summer), when you are physically active, or if you have a fever. Vomiting and diarrhea can also lead to rapid water loss. If you don’t replace the water you lose, you can become dehydrated. [via Familydoctor.org]

To know how much water you should drink daily, just divide your body weight in half and drink that amount in ounces. For example, if you weigh 140 lbs, drink 70 ounces of water. If you are in a hot climate or working out, drink a bit more than that.  I have to drink 3-4 servings of my Camelbak water bottle. It was a challenge at first, but it becomes a healthy habit and I can tell right away if I am feeling dehydrated and haven’t had my full daily serving of water.

Tips to stay hydrated:

  • Keep a bottle of water with you during the day. Purchasing bottled water is expensive and creates plastic bottle waste. Carry a reusable water bottle instead. That’s why we’re giving one away- see details below.  I never leave home without mine!
  • If you don’t like the taste of plain water, try adding a slice of lemon or lime to your drink.
  • Be sure to drink water before, during, and after a workout.
  • When you’re feeling hungry, drink water. Thirst is often confused with hunger.  Drinking water will also contribute to a healthy weight-loss plan.
  • If you have trouble remembering to drink water, drink on a schedule. For example, drink water when you wake up; 15 minutes before meals and when you go to bed. (I always take my water bottle or a glass of water to bed) Or drink a glass of water at the beginning of each hour.

LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT GIFT? [Giveaway]

Clear_bag

HO HO HOping to find that perfect gift for your girlfriend, hubby, mom, coworker, niece, nephew or your kid’s teacher this holiday? Look no further because I did the pre-shopping research for you.  A few months ago one of my besties gave me the most darling monogrammed toiletry bag. Heidi is known for her thoughtful gifts and I was thrilled to find out that the company she ordered it from –Perfectly Gifted Frisco–  was started by our girlfriends, Amy & Ewa.

They are both very busy moms who work full time and I admire them for taking the leap of faith and starting this small business. Many women dream of starting a side biz or passion project so I asked them to share a bit about their journey. Be inspired:

1) You’re both working moms with active young kids. What was the catalyst to starting PGF? 
We love gifts simply put.  Ewa and I alway scheme about what is fun at the time and what would be good to put together as gifts for friends and family.  Our kids have multiple birthday  parties on the weekend and we were always trying to find something other than a target toy or gift card to give.  We talked about doing this at length and then finally decided to take the plunge and here we are. 
2)So many people wish they could start their own biz, but never do..what word of advice can you give a busy mom with a dream?
DO IT!! I think you have to jump in and believe you will be successful.  The other key piece is to be flexible and open to learning and taking advice. 
3) Why PFG? Was is it about personalized items that people love so much?
I think a gift becomes more treasured with personalization, it says someone put thought into this for me.  In this world of go, go, go someone thought about me and that this gift would be loved by the individual. 
4) Many friends would love to start a business together, but it can be difficult with friends. How do you ladies keep it professional when you’re so close? 
We have respect for one another and understand that we each have strengths and we must trust in them. 
5) What inspires each of you?
I think for both us it’s our families and trying to set an example of going after your dreams but also that they understand handwork is a must for success.  
                                                                                                                    ~Amy & Ewa

 

I put in my own holiday order for a group of my girlfriends who are beauty junkies. The clear multipurpose bag is the perfect size and super durable.  I can’t believe how much makeup it can fit and the key feature is that it’s clear so you can see what’s inside. No more fumbling with frustration to the point you get fed up and pour everything out in a pile. Been there, done that! These are also a great idea for a group like a book club, Bible study, sports team or for a girls trip.

This time of year, I always love giving some of my favorite things away. Kind of like Oprah, but don’t hold your breath on the car!  Amy & Ewa would love to personalize one of these clear toiletry bags for you or your beauty junkie friend.

 P.S. It was an honor to be a guest on the hit iTunes radio show, ReLaunch! with life coaches Joel Boggess and Dr. Pei Kang. I love working in front of the camera, but radio is so fun- from the comfort of my home with no makeup and wearing my workout clothes! Stay tuned for the air date! I share my journey and the pivotal moment when I took a break from my successful career in Hollywood to find out what God’s plan was.

For the record, in the photo above I have NO makeup on except Physicians Formula Tinted Moisturizer and mascara. Six weeks ago I had a few cystic hormonal blemishes on the sides of my chin and under my jawline. This is why I’m thrilled to share Clearogen with you!   

LIVING IN THE OVERFLOW: Fill Up Your Love Tank This Weekend [Candid Vlog]

Happy Weekend My Sistas,

Many of you have asked me to please continue sharing the candid “Motivational Monday” vlog style webisodes that I have posted the past few weeks.

________________________________

Who is going to take this assignment seriously? I want to hear all about what you did for YOU this weekend and how it felt to “fill” yourself up. Remember, let go of the guilt and flip your thinking if you find that “me time” leaves you feeling selfish. You are actually doing your family & friends a disservice by not taking care of yourself. Living in the overflow will allow you to give- without resentment– to those who need you.

Wings Or The Worm

bfly_wing copy

 Hey, Hey, Hey!

Are you conscious of your behavior after a phone call or coffee date with a certain friend who brings out your weaknesses instead of your strengths? For example, you chat with a dear friend who is always complaining and venting her drama- complete with a few curse words for punctuation- and the rest of the day you are whining, focusing on your burdens instead of your blessings and cursing like a sailor. Trust me, I am no Miss Priss and have a fiery personality so a few curse words may fly out of my mouth when I get heated. Not proud of it- just keepin’ it real. As I always say- I’m a work in progress! My point is how interesting we are as humans to emulate and model those we hang around. We may be Spiritually-conscious and awake with our shelves filled with self-help books, but it is easy to get sucked in to the chicken coop instead of rising above and soaring like the eagle that we are.  

I love listening to T.D. Jakes during my power walks and a few days ago he said one simple phrase that struck a chord in me. He said, “Are you associating with people who bring out the wings in you or the worm in you?” Obviously, he’s referring to the beautiful idea of transformation through the butterfly. I posted this on Facebook, but wanted to elaborate and start the discussion here on the blog. We are always in a state of growth and transformation- at least I hope we are! I realize you have joined this community because you place your personal growth, development and empowerment as a priority. As an ‘instigator of change and an ‘agent of transformation’, I thrive on constant growth. The minute I feel stagnant in any area of my life- I’ve got to switch things up, change the behavior and expand a bit. 

We can always be a little bit better today than we were yesterday and I will keep that philosophy until I’m 85.

A vital aspect of our growth is who we surround ourselves with.  Are you associating with those who challenge you to come up higher & encourage you to fly?  A few of my girlfriends are gifted encouragers. They have the ability to hone in on someone’s strengths and lift that person up by pointing out and vocalizing these positive traits. They bring out the wings in that person! Don’t you love being around people like that?!  Often times, we are able to reveal a strength in someone that they didn’t even realize they had. By doing so, we open that person up to their full potential which puts them in a position to fly.

On the other hand, we must be mindful of those who try to bring out the worm in us. You know that friend that likes to include you when she’s talking about her own short comings. She says things like, “We have a hard time losing weight because WE are just lazy”. Then you start questioning yourself, “Am I fat? She’s right- I am lazy”. {Record Scratch} Counteract it by kindly not accepting those negative words over your life and respond with something like, “I’m happy with my weight and work out 4-5 times a week. ‘Lazy’ is not a title I care to wear, thank you”. Of course, then there’s the family member who tries to make you feel bad that you are a ‘driven dreamer’ who appreciates nice things. Misery loves company. It takes all kinds to make the world go round and we can love them and learn from them, but we can also limit our exposure to them. When you’re around the critical ones, stand firm in your beliefs and positivity.

Make sure you are rubbing off on them and not the other way around.   

ACTION STEP: Take a look around you. Who do you spend the most time with? Wing peeps or worm peeps? Make a conscious effort to spend more time with friends who are positive and living a life of excellence & purpose! Those who speak about life with enthusiasm. We all have a Destiny to fulfill so it’s crucial to associate with those who help you come up higher and stay on your path- and vice versa. 

We become like those we hang around. Surround yourself with those who like to soar. Be the wind beneath each other’s wings! 

As always, I love to hear your thoughts.

Comment, Tweet + Share the SOS love!

Love, Tiff
