My Oh! Moment! #ProgressOh

The new year is well underway. Have you stuck with your resolutions? I'll be honest, I could be doing better but I haven't given up. I'm returning to my words "too much" again and again to keep me grounded. I've enjoyed being back in exercise class and it's such a great tension reliever.

Progresso wants you to enjoy the new year and keep your healthy resolutions with their new light flavors. These new flavors are joining Progresso's line of soups that are 100 calories or less. I was so happy to receive a ProgressOh! Gift Pack.

I couldn't wait to try the Chicken Pot Pie soup and Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese. Those sound more like thick, rich comfort foods than a light lunch!

Now that big gorgeous bag with the nautical theme is a cosmetic bag but look what fits in there perfectly! It would also be great to hold a can of soup and a beverage. I used mine for my "girl" tools that my mom gave me for Christmas. It was the perfect size for my wrenches, tape measure, and screwdriver. Apple ran away with the compact mirror/ brush. It's her new spy tool.

I'm sure you'd like to know how I enjoyed the soup.......It was simply FABULOUS. It was flavorful, full of chunks of potatoes, and left me full and satisfied. We had warm temps yesterday, severe storms last night, and chilly temps today. It was a great time to try the Chicken Pot Pie. It really was a comfort food on a cold day. The Creamy Potato with Bacon & Cheese was just as good! I will be keeping several cans of these new Progresso flavors in my cabinet for quick, healthy lunches.

So as you can see my Oh! moment isn't particularly about my clothing or a great weight loss. Many times the thing that makes us look our best is simply a smile. It's been a season of stress for us lately and so smiles have been harder to come by. As you can see, today I had a big smile! My Oh! moment came today in the form of a HUGE blessing. My husband has been hired by a nearby police department. We are all so proud of him! He worked very hard to get to this new step in life. Along with this opportunity will come some big changes for our family. We will be moving to the next county in the coming year. We are excited and looking forward to the change. So if you notice me MIA for a little while, it's with good reason!
