Easy Tomato Potato Soup + Monday on the Run #59



Monday – REST
Tuesday – REST
Wednesday – REST
Thursday – SPIN
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.

  1. Gosh, I wouldn’t have given up on that workout that didn’t want to happen. Good for you for trying Option B, and then Option C …

    The soup recipe looks great. I wouldn’t have thought to add potato to make it creamy. I have a recipe from Deborah that uses Chick Peas for a similar reason.

  2. Your soup looks delicious! Great job on your strength training, spinning, and running. Sleeping in to 11 sounds wonderful. Much needed rest! I wasn’t able to finish my long run but did make it 6 out of 8 miles. My son is still sick so I will have to take it one day at a time. Have a great week!

  3. Hey I just found you via the linkup. Love your workout pics and that you get your workouts, even if they’re at the end of the week. Whatever works for you.
    I’ve been missing out on some workouts. Getting my first run back in a while today.

  4. I just love the spin bike – but ours at the gym doesn’t keep track of my mileage or rpm – major bummer. That soup looks like the perfect comfort food – I just may have to try it! 🙂

  5. I’ve always done more on weekends because there simply is more time available. And then, I always missed Monday — because you’ve got to rest some time. That soup looks easy and delicious. Thanks for linking, Carmy!
