Happy day after Thanksgiving! Are you stuffed like a turkey and mending a food hangover? Or out and about shopping? Hope you all had a great day spent with family + friends, thats what its all about! And the food of course
In three days I made a crazy amount of food. Here’s what I ended up making:
Dinner: I made roasted brussels sprouts/broccoli/cauliflower,
deep dish butternut bake with pears (eat clean recipe from tosca reno- side dish winner! this was so amazingly good), ziti (made last month and froze it)
cranberry sauce with orange zest and cinnamon
baked spinach ” pie” – layered with phylo dough and feta cheese
mixed green salad topped with goat cheese, pomegranate arils, toasted walnuts, and served with a cranberry orange vinigarette <–highly recommend making this! Perfectly sweet and tart
and of course, there was turkey, ham, roasted sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, 2 types of stuffing, another cranberry sauce (with walnuts and apples), steamed green beans, meat loaf (just in case there wasn’t enough meat already!), and a rice dish with olives, beans, etc. Are you sick of hearing about food yet?! That doesn’t even include appetizers. I’ll stop there though!!
I love Thanksgiving
Moving on! Today I slept in a whole extra 1/2 hour and skipped my morning workout just because I was way too tired. And hungry. Imagine that? I made myself a bowl of oatbran with egg whites and coffee, cleaned up, and did some online shopping.
I might make today a rest day, or do something light. BUT if you are looking for a good butt kicking workout, I changed up my last butt kicker by upping the weight and sets and changing the order of some exercises, adding in another superset and more calf work. I was sore for a solid 2-3 days. I think I even gained an inch of muscle in my butt just from that workout
Give it a try! I did this all at home, so for those who don’t have access to a gym, this is especially for you. And for those who do.. you should do it anyway
All these exercises (aside from the lateral side kicks and kickbacks) were done with very heavy weight. Adjust to your level. Always check before making crazy changes- these are just my opinions, I’m not a PT.
Aside from the supersets, the sets I did 30 seconds- 1 minute rest. Keep the rest around a minute
