Over the holidays I lost all restraint. It was sinful, BUT fun! Cream cheese cookies, peanut butter fudge, chocolate bark, turkey smothered in gravy, and other fattening goodies passed my lips without hesitation. Well all that unhealthy overindulgence did not come without a price. The realization of what I did was a BIG eye opener once I stepped on the scale and it revealed I gained almost ten pounds. Gag! I don’t like the way the extra weight makes me feel and look so its time to pay the piper and start watching what I eat along with incorporating a good exercise routine into my daily schedule.
MyBlogSpark recently sent me a Progresso “Souper You Debut” gift pack that included 15 cans of several different varieties of the Progresso Light and 100 Calorie Soups, a Progresso digital jump rope that keeps track of jumps and calories burned, and a nice blue Progresso soup mug. The gift pack is perfect for getting me started on managing my weight and getting my butt back in shape.
The Progresso soups taste so delicious and hit the spot especially during the chilly winter days. Loaded with hearty ingredients like pasta, beans, corn, rice, tomatoes, carrots, peppers, it’s hard to believe the soups are only 100 calories or less per cup! The Progresso Light soups offer full flavor and JUST 80 calories or less per serving! PLUS, the “Light” soups happen to be endorsed by Weight Watchers and consist of 0 or 1 “Points” value for each serving. The can clearly displays the “Points” value on the label making it easy for you to keep track of your calories, fat, and fiber.
Take a look at the Progresso Light Italian Style Meatball soup I heated up for dinner! It was so yummy!
