Campbell's Review

Hey everyone! It is such a pretty day but my boss ruined it! lol. He was supposed to be out for the whole week but when I was driving into work and enjoying all the beautiful Fall Foliage... BOOM I see his car service outside grrrrrrrr. WHY IS HE HERE!?! He always does this to me... I warned my coworker last week that this would happen, and not to get his hopes high. I can't wait to see his face when he walks in the office lol

Eats and Workouts
Ayer for Lunch I made WW Pasta with Mushrooms, Onions, and Asparagus in Peanut Butter, Sesame Teriyaki Sauce, and Crushed Red Peppers..simply delish.

For Dinner I finally tried Campbell's V8 Garden Vegetable Soup

100 Vegetarian!

Last week when I tried the Sweet Red Pepper Soup, one of the things I mentioned was that I wished it was chunkier and this certainly was. I thought it was going to be watery and was planning to add some Melba Toast in it but after I poured it into the bowl, I knew it didn't need anything extra.
"With 12 different vegetables and a flavorful, hearty base, this is a robust take on vegetable soup. No artificial flavors. No preservatives. Just the delicious, vibrant taste of a full serving of vegetables with the nutritional goodness that goes along with it."

I enjoyed this soup but as you all know I am not a fan of Celery so that was the one thing that I did not like but if you don't mind Celery than you will love this! Butternut Squash Soup still has my heart but I can't wait to try all the other flavors. I love that all of these soups are 1 serving of veggies and low in calories; 1 cup of the Garden Veggie soup is only 120 Calories. I will continue to buy these...thanks Caroline!

For Dessert I had Cookie Dough Lil Drum

This morning I was not feeling very well and almost threw up half way through my workout so I tried to keep it easy. I did 30 minutes of Kettle Bell workout and burned 276 Calories.

I could not get to work fast enough to have Breakfast! I had 2 leftover Pumpkin Pancakes with PB, Lite Syrup and 1 Banana...I warmed it all up in the microwave and my GOD was this amazingly good!

I might make some more pancakes tonight just to bring them in tomorrow lol.

One of the goodies that Campbell's sent me was a Omron Pocket Pedometer which I am trying out today for the first time . I am interested in seeing how many steps I take in one day and I like that this pedometer keeps a record of all my steps for the week and refreshes every day at midnight.

"Dual-axis acceleration sensor counts steps when placed horizontally or vertically
Counts every step quietly and accurately
Measures steps, aerobic steps, time, and distance
Calculates calories burned
Stores 7 days of information in memory
Resets automatically at midnight so it's ready to go every morning"

According to the pedometer I already took 358 Steps; this does not include my morning workout.

Have a great day everyone!



  1. Sorry about your boss showing up! What a disappointment! I know I loveee when my boss isn't here!! Thanks for the soup review! Looks yummy! And I want those pancakes! I need to make some too and bring them to work! Nice change to oats!

  2. The soup looks good. i hate to have a runny soup too.

  3. I have that same pedometer and love it. Does it have the computer software to go with it. That is also very helpful to use :)

  4. Missy, you def should and thank me in the morning ha

    Nicci, if you like chunky soup, you will love this one =)

    Sarah, Nope it does not have software to go with it but it's still pretty impressive =)

  5. Finally! Someone else that doesn't love celery! People always give me a hard time about that... saying that celery doesn't even have a taste, but it DOES! And I. don't. like. it.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. The pasta looks delicious!

  7. Grace, ha they are lying to you... we know it HAS a taste and we don't like it lol

  8. Love the new pedometer! I should get one of those, as I've been looking for a nice one.

    The campbell's soup looks great. I need to try them! I wonder if they have low sodium versions...

  9. Jefes need to stay home. I wish mine did! Thanks for the soup reviews. I would go crazy with a pedometer, jumping in place and stuff!

    Celery is one of the foods I keep convincing myself to like!

  10. those lil drummer are so stinkin cute!! what a perfect size for a dessert!!

    awesome new pedometor!!

    awesome lookin pumpkin pancakes!

  11. Yum to all your food. I really need to have some pasta asap...I'm actually craving Hamburger Helper...I know sooo wrong, but sooo right :)

    Do you practice yoga on a regular basis too?

    Thanks for adding me to your Roll!!! You'll be on mine :)

  12. I'm not a fan of runny soup, either. so butternut squash ones are dear to my heart! I think I prefer to make my own soup, though since it's a cinch and much cheaper!

  13. Bosses can be obnoxious at times. Especially when they get your hopes up for no good reason!

    You are on a roll with the pasta lately chica! Love it :D.

  14. I try to do Yoga about 3 times a week, I love how it makes me feel

  15. Bosses are notorious for crushing high hopes, damn them! But hey, at least u had a good food day ... and once u get used to the pedometer, u'll see how addicted u are .. can't go anywhere without it after a while!

  16. I love pedometers! I swore by them when I was losing weight and it was so much fun to challenge myself to get more steps in :)
