Great blog for you all

Giveaway: Progresso Souper You

I'm pretty sure that the majority of the folks making New Year's Resolutions either said they wanted to work on getting out of debt (I'd be one of those) or wanted to get into shape.

Even if you didn't make any resolutions this year, I'm sure you've thought about eating healthier. For me, I've admitted on here I don't really watch calories. (If I did, I'd walk right back into an eating disorder trap) I've found that eating 3 meals a day with a healthy snack or two helps me out in the weight department, along with my beloved Wii. (Don't laugh, but a lot of us adults are lucky to eat one decent meal a day, especially those who work outside the home. How's that for preaching eating healthy to our kids?)

It's winter time, so like I've stated on past posts, we eat a lot of soup around here. Most broth based soups run about 110-170 calories per serving, so if you are super hungry, you can eat the whole can and not feel so guilty. Or you can indulge in a healthy grilled cheese to go along with the serving of soup, and still not feel so guilty! (I'm making myself hungry over here writing this post! LOL)

I was pretty thrilled to have a big box arrive from Progresso and MyBlogSpark to start the New Year that contained 15 different kinds of light and broth based Progresso Soups, a totally cool jump rope that's digital (yeah, now I have no excuse not to add that to my workout regime for my tush), and another one of those awesome soup bowls - now we have 3! Yay! So what if it's a giant bathtub for the munchkin right now, we can match! (Yeah, I know we're dorks around here)

Anyways, some of these Progresso soups are only 100 calories a serving! They definitely can't sabotage your eating healthy when the calories are that low. (Just remember to watch the sodium content)

Progresso is also helping folks kick off a healthier New Year with their Souper You Debut contest. All you have to do is submit a 200 word essay about why you love Progresso soups and why you deserve a make over. Three grand prize winners will be awarded a trip for two to New York City! The prize includes the roundtrip airfare for both of you, a two-night stay in a NYC hotel, a full makeover, a $1,000 wardrobe shopping spree with a personal consultation at a New York department store. How's that to reward yourself and get out of the winter blahs right into some hot new Summer clothes? (I'm over here going ME! ME! ME! I could use a new wardrobe, STAT! lol)

Someone has got to win, why shouldn't it be one of you? They say you can't win if you don't enter, so try! (Plus, I would be totally in awe of you if you scored winning a trip! Ah, a girl can dream!) You can enter through March 15th. (and if you win, will you send me a postcard, pretty please? LOL)

You can also print a coupon to save $1.00 off any 3 varieties of Progresso Soup while you're over there entering.

Win it! I get to help you kick off your healthier eating habits with a little giveaway of my own! One lucky reader will win a mini Souper You Debut gift pack that includes 2 cans of Progresso soups, the jump rope, and one of those nifty soup bowls with the Progresso logo on them. (I know, I know, a logo - but trust me, this bowl rocks!) To enter, tell us how you eat healthy or keep in shape. Did you make a resolution to loose a few pounds this year?
