Soup, Glorious Soup!

At work this week the girls and I (there are 4 of us who sit in an open plan area) decided we would take turns in making soups for lunch to help save money in January. Not sure how long everyone else will want to keep going with this, but at the moment I'm loving it, and it beats buying the shop stuff!
So far we've had butternut squash, leek and potato and broccoli and stilton (or parsnip and potato - Tash made a choice!).

Today was my day, and my soup is a recipe I've been looking forward to trying; Loaded Baked Potato Soup. In a previous job where we had a 'lunch club', a colleague made this and it was absolutely amazing, so I've been looking forward to an excuse to make it, and it seems fitting that I'm introducing it to the girls at my current workplace. :)

General consensus was that it tasted good, but it definitely needed its toppings to 'finish' it, and that it was incredibly filling!

Today's Workout (c25k W1D3):
Walking (brisk, 3.8 mph) = 22 minutes
Running (slow, 4.8 mph) = 8 minutes
Strength (Squats, Bench Press, Lateral Pulldown) = 4x8 of each
(Strength programme is being reviewed on Monday)

Shoes: Vivobarefoot Breatho
(Minimus ones need sending back to New Balance for exchange)
