Sunday – 30 MIN RUN
I’ve noticed that recently with my new schedule, I’ve been doing most of my workouts at the end of the week.
My week was pretty low key. I did an easy spin session on Thursday (when I did an Instagram takeover for Sport Chek. Holla if you saw it ;) ). Friday was such a pain in the butt. I had originally wanted to run on the treadmill but I forgot my body glide and I did not want to be chafing for 30 minutes so I hopped onto the stairmaster. 12 minutes in, my knee started hurting and I had to give that up and go to the spin bike. To finish off my workout that really didn’t want to happen, I did some quick deadlifts and squats at the gym while H finished off his workout.
Saturday I had a work meeting so it meant I had 100 lbs of sugar in me as I snacked for two straight hours. #sorrynotsorry. To make up for it, I stopped by the gym and spent an hour doing some lifting. Lunges, one legged deadlifts, regular deadlifts, squats, core work, and kick backs. Typing that out, I realized I haven’t been doing too much upper body in comparison to legs! Oops. I’ll have to keep that in mind for next week.
To end off the week, Sunday, I did an easy 30 minute run after sleeping in til like 11AM. I was totally going to wake up early and get my run in so I could be productive for the day but it so didn’t happen. I was feeling pretty lazy and didn’t really want to do much food wise but I knew I had to make something for my Monday shift since I’ll be out of the house all day.
I checked in my fridge and pretty much just threw whatever looked like it’d go together into the pot and hoped for a good soup. In the end, it turned out pretty good!
It is pretty much a 5 ingredient tomato soup! Seriously, it is so easy and all you need is a pot and a blender. To make this even more simplified and into a 3 ingredient soup, you can take out the potato, use canned tomatoes (with the juice) to sub out the tomato and tomato paste.
- 2 tablespoon of butter
- 2 to matoes
- 1 small onion
- 1 small potato
- 2-3 tablespoon of tomato paste
- optional: 1 clove of diced garlic
- In a pot, on low heat, put in your butter.
- Once melted, add in a small onion, cut into quarters.
- Cut your tomatoes in half and put it into the pot.
- Dice up a small potato and add that into the pot.
- Add in 2-3 tablespoon of tomato paste and the 1 to 1.5 cups of water.
- Optional: add in a diced clove of garlic.
- Let simmer for 20-30 minutes, until the potatoes are cooked.
- Transfer into a blender and blend until smooth.
Super lowkey huh? Literally just took a quick photo of it before eating a bowl and packing the second serving for tomorrow.
