Butt exercises

I didn't eat very well today but I only went 12 calories over my goal so at least there's that.  I had 1473 cals total.  I need to start working out more, my stomach is getting flatter from the weight loss but I need more of a toned look, especially my butt!!

Here are some exercises for a bigger butt or more toned anyways, that I plan to try to do daily.

Front, side and back lunges

Squats or Single leg squats - Stand straight up, with your hands in front of you.  Kick one of your legs to the side, then slowly lower yourself down to a 90 degree angle be bending your other knee.  You might need to prop your side-swept leg on a pillow or rolled towel.

Leg lifts - Lie down on your back and lift each leg straight up, hold for 10 seconds, and lower back down.

Single leg lifts - Start by standing straight with your hands on your hips.  Keeping you legs as straight possible, and without pointing your toes, slowly lift one leg in front of you, holding it there for fifteen seconds.  Slowly lower it, then switch to the other leg. You can also lift your leg diagonally backwards but you might want to hold onto the back of a chair for support. 

Scissor kicks - Lie down on your side propped up on your elbow.  Lift each leg straight up, hold for 10 seconds, and back down.

Forward bends and kicks- Stand with your feet together, arms at your sides.  Then bend forward while raising one leg behind you, and stretch your arms out in front of you for balance.

Bridge - Lay flat on your back with your arms flat at your sides.  LIfe your hips into the air, keeping your arms flat but bending your knee.  Hold the position at least 15-20 seconds.
