The beef hot dogs from Applegate are made with only four simple ingredients: 100% grass-fed beef (raised without antibiotics or hormones), water, salt, and spices. Those other dogs, well you don’t want to know. *shudders*
When you don’t have to worry about artificial ingredients, synthetic nitrates, or antibiotics in your hot dog, there’s more time for the fun stuff and beating your cousin in a friendly game of wits, or is that just me? Don’t forget to get your dog sauced with Sir Kensington’s, and sitting pretty on an all natural bun.
Grilling isn’t just for the boys. I took over the grill for Father’s Day to show off my #GirlsWhoGrill awesomeness.
I’d say he approves of my grilling! And I can be happy that the hot dog he is eating doesn’t contain any nasty additives and fillers.
Ready to get your grill on?
Applegate wants to give you a #GirlsWhoGrill prize pack to get you started! One winner will receive all you see in the picture below!

Joining the line up are three new girls: Lemon Swirl, Dark Chocolate Almond with Coconut, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein.
The hardest thing about these bars is choosing which one to try first. I mean I love lemon, chocolate, and cookie dough. In the end I don’t remember which one was given the honors but I can say they are all yummy.
Whether I am headed out the door for a run or coming back from the gym I use these bars as a snack to keep me going. Unlike some other brands they do not have a weird chalky texture or that artificially sweetened aftertaste that are just nasty. I can enjoy my Skinnygirl bars knowing that they are good for me while satisfying that sweet tooth!

I love sunglasses.
This love affair probably started somewhere in Kindergarten with my first Minnie Mouse shades. Since then I have gone through many pairs. Some more trendy than others. My favorite accessory isn’t just a want for me, it is a need.
As a pale skinned, light eyed redhead, protecting myself from the sun isn’t just a good habit to have it can make the difference in a good day and a burnt day. Even on overcast days, I wear sunglasses. My eyes are sensitive to light and if I head out without my favorite glasses, migraines will ensue. Not cool.
I have been eyeing polarized glasses for years! I can say that these rock at shielding my eyes from the sun. And they look good too!
With Spring finally here and Summer coming around the corner it is important we think about taking care of our bodies by guarding them from the sun. Just like daily sunscreen use and lip balms shield our skins, our eyes shouldn’t be left to their own defenses. At Visionworks you can find a wide variety of stylish glasses that not only look good but keep your eyes protected from sun damage.
Don’t just take my word for it. Visionworks’ VP of Professional Services, Dr. Florian Safner shares about the importance of wearing sunglasses year round:
Protecting your skin from the sun’s damaging rays is important, but too often people overlook the risks of the sun’s damaging effects on their eyes. UV light is a known causative agent in the development of skin cancer, but did you know approximately 5-10% of all skin cancers occur on the eyelids and the delicate tissue surrounding the eyes? Along with skin cancer, UV light is also a contributor in the development of cataracts. Another of the sun’s damaging rays, High Energy Visible (HEV) light, is cited as a major contributor in the development of macular degeneration.
The same advice for protecting your skin holds true for protecting your eyes from the sun. Limit your exposure to the sun. When outside wear a broad brimmed hat to deflect the sun’s rays away from your face and eyes and always wear sunglasses. Sunglasses are more than just a fashion accessory, they are also an important part of your defense against solar effects on your eyes.
Finally an excuse to buy those new glasses you’ve been eyeing! Seriously though, protect your eyes like you would your skin from the sun. If that protection happens to take the shape of designer shades I won’t judge you. In fact I will probably ask where I can find a pair.
One fan will win a $99 gift card to use at Visionworks!

Both the pre and post race activities are fun too. Everyone is buzzing with energy, clean, and anticipating the fun to be had. It is one of the few races I have ever been involved with where all the participants have great time. Post race includes more activities, more awesomeness, and of course more color.
Who says fitness as to be boring?
