1) What new habit you wish to develop?
I am doing a good amount of cardio exercise but need to do some kind of toning/strength training exercises.

2) How will you do that?
Will start looking for youtube videos of things I can do at home with my light hand weights and my light bands. Will start looking into what I could try to do maybe once a week when I make it to the ymca.

3) What are you doing to encourage yourself and keep on track? - MONDAY
Reading success stories of people who have lost alot of weight and transformed their bodies without surgery of any kind.

4) How are you doing day by day? -TUESDAY
On the goal I set of adding toning or strength exercises ? Not very good. Yesterday my youngest didnt have his morning headstart program so he didn't have preschool till noon. So then I didn't get to go to town till 12:30 and had errands to run so wasn't able to make it to the ymca to maybe check out the weights machine. Today I had to take my oldest to a dr appointment in town this morning and then come back to get him to school late so no ymca today either. Haven't looked for anything on youtube to attempt. I always feel like simple stuff like squats , lunges, crunches, leg lifts, etc. won't really count as stuff to build muscle so I never attempt that at home. :(

5) What can you improve upon? - WEDNESDAY
6) Do you need some motivation or advice? Ask for it! -THURSDAY
7) Anything else you would like to share with your Team -FRIDAY

    Using your own weight is one of the best ways to get your strength training in! If you are having a hard time making it to the gym, remember at home workouts can be just as or more beneficial! Check out those videos or do those squats and lunges. Remember any exercise is better than none!

    Things like squats and crunches most definitely "count" to build muscle. In fact some of those exercises can do more for us than a weight machine which takes away our need to balance and reduces the number of muscles used. In addition, doing them without equipment or weight gives you a chance to develop good form and pay attention to the muscles being used.

    I agree the things you mentioned will definitely help. Push-ups are very good also. Burpees. I am doing an exercise that uses all if these and more...and it is working for me. ;). You CAN do it!
