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?

As always, if you have completed the first entry above, you can also receive extra entries for:

-Subscribing to my feed OR following my blog
-Blogging about this giveaway with a link back
-Tweeting about this giveaway (leave the link or @psychotichouse me)

That's up to four (4) possible entries! Giveaway ends January 16th, 2010 at 11:59 PST. US Only, sorry. :( Please leave your email address in your comment, or have it available in your profile so I can contact you if you've won. Winners drawn via Random.org.

Progresso and My Blog Spark sent me a box with 15 different soups, a jump rope, and soup bowl, as well as access to information on their website. My opinions are my own - not Progresso or MyBlogSpark's. The calorie content notes come straight off the cans of soup. One reader will win a prize as stated above courtesy of the sponsors. Please consult with a doctor before starting any weight loss program!

I am trying to get back into shape so my ernia is not hurting so much, I walk when I can and have cut out sodas and junk food for the most part. *I do slip now and then*. I drink loads of water each day and will start journaling my food this Monday.
I am woring on getting my pantry organized so I can have the healthy foods at hand and the junk stuff set up for the kids to reach easier.

rosannepm said...

I'm always thinking about weight but it only seems to go down if I'm severely stressed. Working out makes me gain weight. I do try to eat what I like in smaller portions and only when hungry.

I think 90% of us make the "eat better, loose weight" resolution and this year, I'm going to actually keep it. I just had my gallbladder removed and 3 hernias fixed 2 days before Christmas so you better believe that I will be taking MUCH better care of my body. Already went out and got a treadmill and iam cutting as much fat and salt out of my diet as possible.

Well, I managed rather easily to lose 25 pounds in 2009 so I thought I would do it again 2010. I'm doing more salads and vegetables with my meats this year than I did last. I main goal last year was portion control. This year its on cutting back on some carb hogs like pasta, bread and potatoes. Maybe by 2011 I will be disciplined enough to cut down on sugar in my coffee and tea. That would be a major achievement for me. If I can do that I will be back to the weight I carried just before becoming pregnant with my first child. Slow but sure seems to work for me.
