Progresso giveaway!

Progresso contacted me to do a giveaway in honor of their new "Reduced Sodium" soups - sign me up! ;)

I really like one of these soups - bought it often before they contacted me for this giveaway. ;) Their Chicken Gumbo is quite tasty. It's not too spicy and the flavors are darned good for a canned soup. I like to doctor it up a little - add a dash or two of cayenne and also throw in some shrimp. It's a very tasty dinner for me.

This prize pack includes two cans of Progresso Reduced Sodium soup, a Progresso soup mug, and a fitness ball. The fitness ball kicks butt - I've wanted one for so long, and this was easy to inflate with the included hand pump. And the mug is awesome - fits a whole can of soup and has a nice thumb rest for when you sip your soup (or hot tea like I do at work).

To enter this contest, simply reply to this post with your favorite soup for the cool fall evenings. (I'd also love to hear if you have any tips for using a fitness ball!) I'll randomly pick a winner on or around November 4.

Progresso provided me with the product, information, and prize packs through MyBlogSpark.

EA Sports Active Six Week Challenge - High intensity complete

Fun times - just finished my second EA Sports Active "More Workouts" six week challenge - this time on the high intensity setting! Whew. Each day I worked up quite a sweat doing this workout - but man, I also kept smacking myself repeatedly with the cord while doing the paddle surfing and some of the other activities. I cannot wait for the new version coming out later this year that won't require the nunchuk, so I will not hit myself.

I'm not planning on starting up another challenge right now - going to just do my own workouts with it for awhile. I like the step activity as well as the punching, so I'll stick with those. Also need to get into some other workouts too - time to throw in some DVDs every now and again.

Keep an eye out for a contest coming soon...
