And if only rolling over my hips and thighs on a machine would shape them. I would be all over that. Heck – I would sleep on it! Or maybe I should try working out in heels…
Oh well, I had to make due with a leg press machine instead. 😀
|Lying Leg press||3 sets of 10|
|Seated hamstring curl||3 sets of 10|
|Seated leg extension||3 sets of 10|

|Alternating side lunges||3 sets of 10|
|Kneeling leg press||3 sets of 10|
|Seated calf raises||3 sets of 10|
FYI – it takes me 30-35 minutes to run through these routines I have been doing.
My gym is open on Thanksgiving for a while and part of me wants to go, but then there is that no shopping on Thanksgiving and does the gym count? The owner is normally the one who works on Turkey day, so it’s not like he is sitting at home while his employees work. So, I don’t know what I will do.
Not to mention there is snow coming. Might be shoveling for exercise on Thursday morning. 4 to 6 inches is the forecast right now. Yuck. Bad timing with most of it falling between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning. Stay safe travelers!
We will be doing some prep work tomorrow for our dishes to take to Thanksgiving dinner. We are bringing Alton Brown’s cornbread pudding and a brussel sprout dish – this one: Pan seared brussel sprouts with cranberries and pecans, only leaving out the barley.
- 1 pound brussels sprouts, de-stemmed and halved
- ? cup fresh cranberries
- ? cup gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
- ? cup pecans
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- Salt & pepper
Basically you saute everything except the cheese and maple syrup for 6 to 8 minutes. The add in the maple syrup, stir to coat. Then toss in the gorgonzola cheese.
I hope it comes out good!
