JJ’s I’m Me Foundation would love for you to become a community partner in the I’m Me Tour. The city-wide tour, which promotes the social and emotional development of young girls, is designed to encourage girls to assume a more active role in the community, as well as take ownership of achieving personal success. By becoming a tour sponsor, your company could become an integral part of building a better community.

Remember when you were in preschool or at home and you had your own play kitchen? You would bring your mom or dad a play meal on one of those green or red plates with some play juice and fork.

Week 6 of JJ's I'm Me Tour @ McAuliffe Middle School (FBISD): I'm Fit & Fabulous
Raise your hand if you have ever done a walk-out plank! Now, raise hour hand if you can do 3 sets of 10 or more walk-out planks in a row, with a minute break in between. Yeah yeah, well good for me. Me, not so much (LOL) but everyone is not on the same fitness level.
And that's what Fitness Trainer and Personal Coach Tatiana Scott @fitwithcurves, left with our girls today: BE THE BEST FIT VERSION OF YOU!
There are many benefits of working out and living a healthier lifestyle. Building muscle helps boost your metabolism, reduces stress, helps prevent osteoporosis and much more.
When asked what's one part of your body that you would like to work on, the girls mostly answered with 'abs'! Tatiana shared with us that 80% of having a strong core is made in the kitchen. So, if you've been eating unhealthy while working out, you're doing yourself a disservice.
It's time to eat leaner meats and consume more fruits and veggies. Don't forget to opt for fresh or frozen veggies and stay far away from canned veggies.
Some other valuable lessons we learned were:
-reading nutrition labels (pay attention to the Top 5 Ingredients)
-increase cardiovascular exercise (running, swimming, cycling, jumping jacks, mountain climbers)
-stay away from fast foods (meal prep, show at farmer markets, use coupons)

Vision: a vivid mental image of the future.
This past Saturday, some of Houston's best got a chance to connect, network with other businesses and entrepreneurs and put together some of their biggest ideas and concepts on hand picked scrapbook paper, sealed with a personal choice of an array solid colored memory frames.
The evening began with a little bit of mix and mingle in the open foyer of Holley's Seafood Restaurant and Oyster Bar, conveniently located minutes from downtown Houston. Upon arrival and check-in, guests sipped on their drink of choice and got a chance to snap a few photos in front of the neutral toned floral backdrop made by @rileysflowergarden.
As guests made their way to the formal dining room, our host and Founder of I'm Me Foundation, Jillian Simmons, JJ, made her formal intros including sponsors and board members. A 3 course meal, including Cornish Hen & Waffles, Shrimp & Grits and Southern Egg Benedict, just to name a few of the pre-selected menu items of choice. Pastor Mia Wright, Co-Pastor of The Fountain of Praise was the Guest Speaker and Recipient of the 2017 Civic Engagement Award. She is truly dedicated to the betterment of her Houston and surrounding areas community.
We had an amazing time and look forward to seeing each of you again next year!
