Join Auntie Anne’s & Alex’s Lemonade Stand to help fight childhood cancer

 

Childhood Cancer

Cancer is an ugly word. Unless it’s your zodiac sign no one ever wants to utter that word. Cancer is cruel. It has no limits and knows no boundaries. It doesn’t care if you are young or old, black or white, Italian or Irish, rich or poor. Cancer can strike anyone, anywhere at anytime.

Cancer has touched my life over the years. My grandfather had breast cancer, my great-grandmother died from ovarian cancer, my mother-in-law died from pancreatic cancer, my brother-in-law had cancer and a family friend died from brain cancer at the young age of 11. I recently went back to work and learned the site’s director had a cancerous tumor on her ovary. She’s only 24. They removed it and thankfully she’s doing OK.

Cancer is difficult for anyone to deal with. I think it’s even harder when it strikes children. They have their whole lives ahead of them. No one wants to watch a precious, innocent child deal with this sometimes fatal disease. It breaks my heart when I hear about a young warrior who is battling this cruel disease.

Victoria

One such Mini but Mighty Hero is Victoria. Victoria lives in Houston, Texas. Victor’s battle began when she was only six months old. Now four years old, she’s happily in remission. Her mom proudly writes, “Victoria is my hero because she has been through so much more than I could imagine going through myself. She has always been a positive and happy person.”

It’s wonderful to hear that through it all Victoria has remained hopeful and happy. That is very important not only for the child but also their families.

I hope and pray that Victoria’s cancer forever remains in remission and she goes on to have a long, happy and healthy life that she deserves.

Victoria is just one of many Mini but Mighty Heroes.

Auntie Anne’s and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation have joined forces to help raise awareness and funds to fight childhood cancer.

Auntie Anne’s makes those delicious pretzels you often see sold at the mall. Their Sweet Almond is my favorite. My family and I often enjoy an Auntie Anne’s pretzel or another one of their yummy snacks when we go to the mall.

The Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation has been helping to fight childhood cancer for many years. It was started by a four year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996 – 2004). She told her family that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to help raise money to find a cure for all children who had cancer. Her selfless act of kindness and good will towards others helped shaped her simple idea of a lemonade stand into the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Thousands of volunteers across the country carry on her legacy of hope. To date the foundation has raised over $75 million dollars and helped fund 375 research projects nationwide. Alex would be very pleased. If only she lived long enough to see her idea bloom and grow like it has.

Please check out this brief video to see how Auntie Anne’s and the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation have partnered to help find a cure.

 

There is something YOU can do to help. From July 28, 2014 – September 15, 2014 you can donate to the Join the Mighty Fight Campaign.

Here is a little more information about the campaign.

This summer, our goal is to find cures for children who are in the mighty fight of their life against cancer. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of these mini fighters. How can you help? By donating, you’re helping Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation fund potentially life-saving cancer. Here is what your donation could fund:

  • $5: Supports Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation one cup at a time.
  • $15: Provides a gas card to help a family drive to a hospital for treatment
  • $25: Funds a half hour of childhood cancer research
  • $50: Funds one hour of childhood cancer research
  • $100: Enables a family to reside at a nearby hotel so they can stay close to their child receiving treatment
  • $400: Funds one day of childhood cancer research

If we reach our goal of $35,000, we will help fund 700 hours of childhood cancer research! In appreciation of your donation, Auntie Anne’s will send all donors a $1 off coupon, valid at participating U.S. stores, within 7-10 days.

We also believe a small donation goes a mighty long way. For every share of the Mighty Fight, Auntie Anne’s, Inc. will donate $0.25 (the cost of a cup of lemonade!) towards childhood cancer research.

I hope you will consider joining the fight and help the campaign reach it’s goal. Every little bit helps. Even if you can only donate $1.00 it will help.

Perhaps the next time you are waiting on line to get your morning mocha latte you might consider giving it up for just one morning and donate that $5 to help find a cure for childhood cancer.

Are you ready for a Summer Shape Up? (Giveaway ends 8/9/14)

 

BALANCE BAR WELCOMES SUMMER WITH SHAPE UP CHALLENGE

I know that I’m seriously out of shape. Being overweight is a dead giveaway, but not all overweight people are out of shape. I know plenty of overweight men and women who are in awesome shape and can accomplish things that people half their size can’t do.

I realized I was really out of shape when I started back to work. I recently started working part time in a daycare setting. I work with a lot of children from newborns to teens (teenagers rarely, if ever, show up but they are welcome there). I find myself doing a lot of bending over, picking up, crawling on the floor and having to sit on those itty bitty toddler chairs. Almost every day I come home achy.

The parking lot situation is also crazy. Often I have to park far away from the entrance to the building.

I really get a work out at work. LOL!

What I need to do it get in shape. The summer is a great time to do that because the weather is good for walking (except those super hot and humid days) and we have access to our condo complex’s pool. Swimming is an excellent workout. It’s low impact and it cools you off at the same time.

I headed off to Walmart with my family to pick up some essentials to help me shape up this summer. As soon as we walked into Walmart we headed straight to the section that holds exercise equipment and the like.

My kids REALLY wanted me to get a treadmill. I would in a heartbeat if we had the money and the room for one. One day I’d like to get one.

My daughter tried to convince me to get an ab roller. That was not what I had in mind. I was specifically looking for some hand weights to help me tone up and build muscle and something I could use to help me work out while I was walking.

I found a walking DVD which I almost bought, but my husband question why I would need a DVD for walking. I guess he has a point.

Walk

I did want to get some weights so I can tone up my flabby arms and build some muscles. I had thought about a kettle ball, but in the end I opted for a pair of 3 pound hand weights.

Kettle ball

While we were there we checked out some bikes. I REALLY want a bike. I would love for my entire family to have bikes so we can ride around the lake where we live, or even just around the condo complex where we live. Currently my son is the only family member with a bike. Our daughter outgrew hers.

Getting bikes for my whole family is on my “Bucket List”. Bike riding is not only a great workout it’s also fun and a great bonding family experience.

Bikes everywhere!

Bikes everywhere!

We also picked up a new basketball. We had one but we lost it. I think we left it at the park one day. My family enjoys shooting hoops together at our local elementary school. Ever since we lost our basketball we haven’t been able to play. My kids are excited that we have a new ball now. The weather has been “iffy” this weekend so we’ll shoot for next weekend (no pun intended – LOL).

Basketballs

While we were at Walmart I swung by the health section to pick up some more vitamins. Now that I work around a lot of little children I have a feeling I’m going to be exposed to colds more often. I wanted to pick up something that would help boost my immunity so that I don’t get sick, or bring home anything to give my family a cold.

The health section is where I found some Balance Bars that I tossed into our shopping cart too. Someone must have stocked up on them because there were hardly any available and only in two varieties. I wanted to get an assortment of Balance Bars.

Balance Bars

The reason why I wanted to stock up on Balance Bars is because I want to participate in Balance Bar’s Summer Shape Up Challenge.

Balance Bar® Summer Shape-Up Challenge kicks off to help consumers move more, eat healthier and feel great while enjoying summer. The 40-day Challenge will be filled with 30-minute workouts, healthy eating tips and multiple social media giveaways on FacebookPinterest and Twitter. Holly Del Rosso, an NASM certified personal trainer, created the exercise program which includes 18 different 30-minute workouts focused on different parts of the body such as abs, legs and back.    

I want to participate because I am interested in the 30 minute work outs, especially ones that can help me with my “problem areas” like my legs and arms.

I have blogged about Balance Bars in the past (they are so yummy!).

Balance Bars are made with ingredients and nutrients specifically formulate to keep you in “balance”. Balance Bars are available in 20 different flavors. Each one is based on the 40/30/30 nutrition model – 40% calories from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% from dietary fat. This ratio helps to provide your body with long lasting balanced energy, maintain blood sugar levels and helps satisfy your hunger.

Balance Bar is hosting a Twitter chat on July 31, 2014 at 3:00 PM (EST). The official hashtag is #BalanceShapeUp. I’ll be there and I hope you will be too. I’m excited to see what tips and tricks I can learn to help me with my Summer Shape Up.

Puracyn – Your first step in first aid to protect your family’s “summer firsts”

Puracyn

Do you and your family have special things that you look forward to doing each and every summer, like the first time your family gets to go to the beach or the first time you get to fire up the barbecue.

My family enjoys visiting our local and state parks often. One park we go to every summer is Bear Mountain State Park. We always go for a picnic and then head over to the zoo (also located at the park) to visit all the animals they have at the zoo which are indigenous to this part of the country. We do it every year.

This year our first trip to the state park for a picnic and visit to the zoo was a few weeks past our normal time. We usually go the beginning of summer. Now that I am back to work part time we can’t just head out to the park any time we want. Now we have to wait for the weekends which can be very crowded. It’s hard to enjoy the paddle boats on the lake when the park is crowded.

At the entrance to the park zoo there is a big rock. We like to have our kids sit on that rock so we can take their picture each year and compare it to other years. It’s fun to see how they’ve grown.

I wasn’t able to find all the photos (they are all over on various hard drives and CDs) but I do have the current one from our first trip to the park/zoo this year as well as three other photos from over the years. You can tell they were not amused this year by my son’s non-smile and my daughter’s cheesy smile.

Kids at Bear Mountain

Sadly we had a “casualty” at the park that day. It’s a long story but our daughter went to snatch her phone from my husband’s hand and instead hit the phone and it went flying and smashed on the ground shattering it. Needless to say that put an end to our park time. We had to call it an early day to get the phone to the Apple store to get fixed.

Phone

It’s not the first time we had an accident at the park. One year our daughter was running down the concrete trail where the zoo is and fell and messed up her knee and hands. Thankfully we had a first aid kit in the car but the car was parked far from where the zoo was. We had to get her to a bathroom quickly to wash it off before heading out to the car to retrieve the first aid kit. As you can imagine she wanted no part of being in the park after that.

I happened to take pictures of her “boo-boos” that day. I don’t know why. I’ll share the photo of her knee. Her hands were really messed up and gross looking.

23807_401222603972_460505_n

Our son did something similar after falling off his scooter at another park.

Both first aid kits in our cars (one in my car, one in my husband’s car) needs to be updated. All we really have in them are bandaids and a few odds and ends. We really don’t have anything to clean and disinfect wounds like we should. We also should think about carrying a few first aid essentials in our bag just in case an injury happens.

There is a product on the market that would be ideal for your family’s outings just in case “boo-boos” happen. It’s called Puracyn®.

f53c09d0-f0aa-11e3-b2fc-22000afd2dc7

Puracyn® is a wound care product that is ideal for cuts, lacerations and abrasions. It’s also good for minor skin irritations. The product does not contain any steroids, alcohol or steroids. It’s over the counter so you don’t need a prescription.

This unique, patented solution of electrochemically treated saline for cleaning and healing wounds. The solution mimics compounds naturally produced by the body. It’s also less painful than peroxide or alcohol wipes.

Puracyn® has been tested by doctors. It’s non-irritating, non-toxic and non-sensitizing . It’s easy to apply and “mess free”.

Puracyn® is an on-the-go wound spray in a convenient, portable bottle that helps to clean wounds without the need of running water or messy ointments. It can be tucked inside your purse, pocket, tote or in our case our picnic basket. There is no need to carry around your entire first aid kit. A bottle of Puracyn® and a few bandaids should be all you need to tend to most minor cuts and abrasions. You don’t need to lug around your entire kit. Keep that in the car in case you need further aid. Puracyn® is all you need for most superficial wounds.

Ironically our daughter DID get hurt on our first visit to the park for our picnic and zoo visit – she got glass in her thumb from continuing to try and text with her phone shattered (it still worked). Puracyn® came in hand for that. We removed the glass bits and applied the Puracyn® to her thumb.

Did you know that 39% of all outdoor, recreational related injuries happen during “summer-type” activities such as biking, hiking, surfing, horseback riding and scuba diving? (Source: http://bit.ly/1rzdlyS). Even something as simple as running on a concrete sidewalk (downhill no less) could have consequences (as pictured above).

Injuries, aka “boo-boos”, can happen anytime whether you are camping, swimming in your backyard pool, roller blading or simply playing at the playground on the equipment. As a parent you need to be prepared for anything. Therefore you should pick up a bottle of Puracyn® before you head out to experience your “firsts” this summer. Puracyn® should be your first step in first aid.

Puracyn® is hosting a sweepstakes where they are asking consumers to share their summer “firsts”. Until July 24, 2014 you can enter for your chance to win one of four summer prize packages (approx. value $400).

To enter please click on this link. You can also enter on the Puracyn® Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/Puracyn.

For more information about Puracyn® visit www.Puracyn.com.

Check out what others are saying about Puracyn® by searching for the official hashtag #PuracynFirst.

What “firsts” have you experienced – or yet to experience – this summer?

Do you carry around first aid supplies in case of injuries?

Have you tried Puracyn®? If not do you think you will include it in your family’s outdoor first aid kit?

Now you can enjoy the foods you miss with new Beano + Dairy Defense

 

Ziti 3

Last week I wrote about a new product that will help people with digestive and lactose issues. It’s called Beano + Dairy Defense.

Beano + Dairy Defense is made with two natural enzymes that help to break down lactose and complex carbohydrates found in foods that normally cause bloating, diarrhea and stomach discomfort.

When I used to think about Beano I would think about gas prevention. Some foods do cause people to get gas. I would never think about Beano in regards to helping prevent other gastronomical issues.

Beano’s new Dairy Defense helps people with lactose issues too. Having a lactose intolerance to certain foods can also cause gas as well as bloating and discomfort.

I was asked to try out Beano + Dairy Defense by eating foods I would not normally eat because they cause me to have “tummy troubles”.

I love cheese. I REALLY love cheese. Sadly cheese doesn’t feel the same way about me. Some cheeses simply do not sit well in my stomach.

I wanted to put Beano + Dairy Defense to the test so my family and I went to one of our favorite Italian restaurants and I ordered something I would normally avoid – Bake Ziti Florentine (Ziti with Spinach). The restaurant has been known to pile on the cheese. Cheese and spinach are two foods that tend to disrupt my stomach.

The restaurant also gives you a nice garden salad with each dinner. Salad is another food that upsets my stomach. I don’t know if it’s the lettuce or the veggies that usually come with the salad. I try to avoid creamy dressings, so I know dressing is not the issue.

The bottle is very small in size. It looks larger in the photos then it actually is. The bottle is no bigger than an average size tube of lipstick.

Salad

Ziti

In order to take advantage of Beano + Dairy Defense you need to take one Raspberry Sorbet flavored chewable tablet before your meal. I like to take it about 10 minutes before I eat so that it has time to start working. Normally I take one right after I place my order, that way I know it’s ready to start working when our meals arrive.

I enjoyed both the Baked Ziti Florentine and the house salad.

The first thing I noticed after my meal is that I didn’t feel bloated. Sometimes I get so bloated that I feel like I can’t move. I feel like the character of Violet from Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the one who ballooned up into a giant blueberry).

Feeling bloated is very uncomfortable. It makes you feel “stuffed” even if you didn’t over eat.

As I mentioned before, salad often upsets my stomach even forcing me to race to the bathroom (not to be gross… it’s just a part of life). That didn’t happen to me this time – thankfully.

After enjoying a lovely dinner with my family I felt full and satisfied, not stuffed, crampy or nauseous.

Two thumbs up for Beano + Daily Defense. It passed it’s first test with flying colors.

I put  Beano + Dairy Defense to the test again recently at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City. My husband has been wanting to return there for almost a year. There was an ice sundae on their menu that he just had to have – Candy Bar Blast.

Candy Bar Blast from Dylan's Candy Bar (NYC) on top of  table made out of gumballs.

Candy Bar Blast from Dylan’s Candy Bar (NYC) on top of table made out of gumballs.

Due to my lactose intolerance I cannot eat much ice cream – only a few spoonfuls at a time.

I would have loved to have ordered the same sundae as my husband but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something I might not be able to finish due to my intolerance. My husband did let me have several spoonfuls to try it out (plus it was too much for him to finish).

I knew we were going to Dylan’s Candy Bar so I made sure to take the Beano + Dairy Defense with me. I took one tablet and gave it several minutes to “kick in” (so to speak). Then I tried several spoonfuls of his ice cream sundae.

Under normal conditions I would have NEVER attempted that because the last thing I’d want is an upset stomach while visiting New York City. Public restrooms are not readily available.

I am happy to report that my stomach was able to tolerate his ice cream. :-) I didn’t eat a lot of it (just a few spoonfuls). I had just enough to enjoy it. Under normal circumstances I would have never even attempted to sample it.

I did get a little bit full (not bloated) because I had a strawberry-banana smoothie while we were there. It was a large cup and very filling, it had nothing to do with “tummy troubles”.

IMG_3902

I plan on keeping the bottle of Beano + Dairy Defense in my purse because you ever know when you might need it.

I am enjoying the Beano product. I like being able to enjoy certain foods again.

If you decide to try Beano + Dairy Defense for yourself I would recommend easing into it. Everyone is different. Try it a few times like I have and see how your stomach feels afterwards before moving on to more foods. I am certainly very pleased with my experiences thus far but I’m not about to dive right into a giant ice cream sundae. I want to slowly move up to things like that.

Do you have certain foods that upset our stomach? What foods bother you the most? Feel free to share your experiences. I always love to hear from my readers.

SmartShield’s Rehydrating Face Cream

 

sunbathing

Do you always make sure apply sunscreen each and every time you walk out the door? Sadly not every one does. Even with all the warnings about skin cancer people still take that risk and go out in the sun with nothing protecting their skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

In addition to causing skin cancer the sun can cause your skin to wrinkle and premature aging.

When I was a teen and a young adult sunscreen never crossed my mind. In fact as a teen I would slather baby oil on my skin and lie out in the sun. Looking back on that now I want to cry. Because of my ignorance I have had to have six “suspicious” moles removed from my back. That was painful!

Over the years I have tired many sunscreens. I have found several great sunscreens for my body, but it’s not as easy to find sunscreen for your face. I find that most facial sunscreens clog my pours, make my face break out and make my skin feel sticky or weighed down.

I had the opportunity to try a sunscreen that was made specifically for your face. It’s called SmartShield’s Rehydrating Face Cream. It has an SPF of 45.

SS Logo

Not only does SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream protect against UVA/UVB rays, it’s also sweat resistant and oil free.

Unlike other facial sunscreens, SmartShield doesn’t weigh your skin down. It’s not stick or greasy either. It goes on a lot like a regular facial moisturizing lotion.

As per SmartShield “Our sunscreen formula has no noticeable “sunscreen feel”, even after multiple applications.” I would have to agree with that.

I have not used SmartShield to go swimming but I have worn it to spend many hours walking around New York City and other “outdoor adventures” with my family where we wore sunscreen. I used regular sunscreen on my body (whatever we had handy) and SmartShield on my face. So far I have not experienced any sunburn so I can only assume it’s working.

I apply SmartShield Rehydrating Face Cream on a clean face. Once it dries (which is quickly) I then apply make up like I normally would. I tend not to wear a lot of make up during the summer months. Usually it’s some mineral make up (powder), eye liner and mascara.

SmartShield is hypoallergenic, safe for all skin types and dermatologist-approved.

I like that SmartShield not only protects my skin but doesn’t make my skin feel gross after I apply it. I also don’t feel the need to quickly wash my face off the moment I step in the door. Sometimes I forget I’m even wearing sunscreen.

If you would like to learn more about this or other SmartShield products visit www.SmartShield.com. SmartShield sells other sun protection products. You can purchase them online and as well as other retail locations. There is a store locator on their site.

You can also find the brand on Facebook and Twitter.

Are you lactose intolerant?

 

Cheese

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, I was able to enjoy tall glasses of ice cold milk, big bowls of ice cream and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Oh how I miss those days.

Back in the early 90′s I had major surgery which left me lactose intolerant, among other things. Now the wonderful foods and beverages I once loved became feared “enemies”. I also have a harder time digesting certain foods. Sometimes things like baked beans (the kind you have with hot dogs), spinach, broccoli and apples upset my stomach.

Even salads can leave me with bad stomach cramps and bloating. I don’t normally use cream based dressings. I tend to stick with balsamic or oil and vinegar. I also don’t top salads with a lot of things. Mostly onions, cucumbers, peppers, carrots and the occasional crouton. Sometimes I can enjoy a salad just fine, other times it causes so much distress and discomfort that I tell myself I’ll never eat salad again.

Whenever I make the attempt to enjoy the dairy products I once loved something always happens to make me regret my decision. Depending on the food or beverage I’ll either experience horrible stomach cramps, bloating, gas, cramps or even the dreaded diarrhea (sorry… TMI). If you are lactose intolerant or know someone who is I’m sure you can totally relate to these experiences.

Ice cream sundae

I can get away with eating some products in very small quantities with little to no problems afterwards. For example, I can eat aged cheeses like cheddar with little to no problem. I can also eat ice cream in small doses. For some odd reason when the ice cream melts that is when I start to experience stomach issue. This is why I only enjoy tiny bowlfuls of ice cream. In a way I guess that is not so bad. It prevents me from over eating, but at the same time I would give anything to be able to enjoy an ice cream sundae again.

I have tried lactose pills and other products. It’s been hit or miss for the most part. Sometimes they are OK, other times they are no help. I’ve even tried antacids or anti-diarrhea products BEFORE eating in hopes that it helps.

I think the one thing I miss the most is milk. I used to love milk and I would drink it all the time. I especially loved chocolate milk.I can drink milk in small doses (a few sips). I can’t drink chocolate milk at all. Oh how I miss chocolate milk!

Whipped cream and Cool Whip are hard for me to tolerate. Even recipes made with heavy creams. Sigh…

Cheese is big deal for me. I LOVE CHEESE! I would eat it every single day if possible. I love grilled cheese, cheese slices on crackers, cream cheese on bagels, and melted cheese on foods like pizza, lasagna and baked ziti. Usually I have to push the cheese aside or in the case of pizza often have to pull some of the cheese off. Pizza is not pizza without ooey gooey melted cheese.

dairy-defense-product.ashx_

Recently I received a product to review that is supposed to be able to help me with the gestational issues that I experience when I enjoy something with lactose. It’s called Beano + Dairy Defense. It is the first over-the-counter option that prevents both gas and dairy issues, giving you the freedom to eat the foods you want and those that are good for you, without worrying about the uncomfortable digestive issues they can cause.

Beano + Dairy Defense is made with two natural enzymes that help to break down lactose and complex carbohydrates found in foods that normally cause bloating, diarrhea and stomach discomfort.

In order to use Beano + Dairy Defense simply enjoy one chewable tablet before your meal. The tablets are small and are raspberry sorbet flavored. They are very tasty. Even the bottle they chewables come in is tiny making it easy to tuck it into your pocket or purse discreetly so that no one notices.

I’m going to try Beano + Dairy Defense for a few weeks and see how well they help with my digestive issues. I am going to post my review in the next couple of weeks. I’ll also be hosting a giveaway too. Be sure to look out for that post. 

Do you have any kind of digestive issues? Are there certain foods you have to avoid? Feel free to share your experiences.
