Souper You Contest & Giveaway has been extended

I was seriously intending to post about this contest quite awhile ago but my life has been so hectic lately. First I want to thank Laurie, and especially Progresso for holding the Souper You Contest. I was sent a package and that huge box included a big box of progresso soup, of various flavors. Progresso sent me a gift pack, the progresso soup and all information pertaining to this contest. I really love Progresso Soup. I can't say that enough. Next to my own soup I think that its the best soup out there. If you are any sort of diet Progresso even is low calorie enough to stay on point, and even helps with point Counting if you are on The Weight Watchers plan. There are even some low- sodium progresso soups if your concerned with salt intake. In the package I received it included several cans of Chicken Noodle Soup. If you know me, then you know I love me some Chicken Noodle. Growing up we always got the cheap kind with the little noodles and the little pieces of chicken. As I became an adult I learned how to make my own Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. With chunks of chicken and bigger noodles :) Click on the link for the recipe to my own soup. They gave me Plain chicken noodle, low fat chicken noodle, low sodium. I'm not saying its the best soup out there but, I think it has chunkier chicken in its packaging. I still have a few cans left, that I plan to enjoy this week for lunch. I love that progresso has a wide selection of soups to fit everyone's needs. Okay on to the

I ♥ Nike+

I just love my Nike+ It helps me to see where I'm at while I'm walking. It helps me see where I'm improving at. If I see if I'm slacking off I can start walking faster, or if I'm really feeling it that day I can even run. I can't say enough good stuff about it. I joined the YMCA in the town over from ours, cause I thought I would be obtaining a job there. But I'm not so sure that I will be
I really wished we had the room somewhere to set up my treadmill. Ugh!!! I hate that I'm having to pay to use a treadmill. Cause that is mostly what I use. Especially when I own a new treadmill that's not even been used a handful of times. I will think of something, maybe I can find some room in this house to put it. I hate having to live with family and not having room for my own stuff. It is sooooo frustrating. I'm hoping that this evening my husband and I can take our daughter to the playground this evening. The weather is suppose to be really nice today and I'd love to take her out so we can all enjoy the weather and perhaps I can get a walk in too! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Healthy You Challenge Week 9

Scale Junkie talked about in her weekly HYC post that she wanted all of us to Make March a month of ACTION! I do believe that she is right. Like her I'm at a moment in my life that I'm so ready for change! I'm writing this post having very little sleep and about to fall to sleep.. LOL so bare with me if it doesn't make any sense. Lately my husband and I have had marriage issues, in which we are currently working on. I've been trying to do better on balancing time with our time, being there for my daughter and school. I'm making me a priority as well. Yeah school is for me but, I need to take care of myself.

By taking action I bought a gym membership! I love my gym and couldn't be more happier with my choice. However, I'm trying to slowly work my way into a program. I hurt my back over a week ago when I picked leah up out of the grocery cart, I suppose my baby girl is getting too big for being in a grocery cart! My doctor also said I have a pretty severe kidney infection even threaten me with putting me in the hospitial. I've took more action by eating healthier, drinking more water. I'm planning on going to the gym after I get Leah on the school bus! I'm needing some sort of action plan on routine for loosing weight. Is there something I should be going by? I love using NIKE+ and using it to track my progress.

So what is your action plan for March?
Mine are:
Drink 3 bottles of water everyday
walk 3-4 days a week for 30 mins at least
elliptical easy and steady wins the race. Probably start out with a few mins and add each time. They are so hard on my knees? anyone else have that problem
Workout at the Cafe' which is similar to Curves. about 2 x's a week for 30 mins
more fruits and veggies
Take Thyroid & Multivitamin
