Butt lifts while lying down or ANYTIME you are lying down; including while watching t.v.!
Do these lying on the floor. Do these anytime you are lying down.
Start with the above. Lift and hold for as long as you can. Relax, release, and lift again. Hold for as long as you can in the lift up position. This not only works the butt muscles, it works the inner legs, outer leg and abs.
If you are lying on the couch watching television...lying on one side with one leg straight, and one knee bent, lift the bent knee and leg up while squeezing the butt muscles and the outer thigh muscle. You need to feel it, clench the muscles as you do this...it adds to the workout. Change sides.
Lying down do the same as above with the feet flat lifting buttock up, only this time do it with legs spread apart about a foot or so apart - wider if you can. Of course you can do these on the floor on a mat...I'm giving you the NO-EXCUSE version.
Anytime you think of it clench butt muscles. If you are standing in front of the stove cooking, clench the muscles. Release. Do this as often as possible. Including when you are just sitting. Its the clench and release that is working those muscles.
Lying down do the 'riding bicycle' exercise. Legs up doing cycling movements. Also do them with legs extended out from your body in a 'cycling motion'
Lying down lift legs up. Spread legs apart - SLOWLY bring legs back together. Do not let your toes or feet meet. Leave them about 6 inches apart. Repeat. Try an hold your legs out apart as long as you can as well. Hold legs in the 'together position' (without toes or feet meeting) for as long as you can hold that as well.
As in the intro photo and how I described in the 'Lying on the couch' section
This is what it looks like when you are doing these.
Yes, you can still see the television while doing this!
This is the best exercise for the 'bottom area' it also works the abs.

Sitting at the desk exercises.
Sit at the edge of the chair far enough away that you can open and close your legs. (These are sit down butterfly leg workouts)
Open legs apart as wide as you can. Then slowly close them together. Do not let your knees touch - about 6 inches. Repeat. Do this for as long as you can, as often as you can.
As you are doing these, 'feel your muscles' you will 'feel' the outer leg muscles move, and the inner leg muscles as you bring your legs together.
You can do these slowly, you can also do them quickly. In fact changing up the speed from slow to fast is good. And again from fast to slow. Do as many as you can throughout the day.
Place a ball between your legs. Hold the ball in place squeezing your legs together. Squeeze and hold. Gently release without letting the ball drop. Then squeeze together again. This works the inner leg, outer leg and buttocks.
If you don't have a ball...pretend there is one there! Imagine what it would feel like to do this. 'Fake' equipment including fake weights is something I use often.
Going to visit the bathroom? Instead of simply 'sitting down' Squat over the toilet and go to sit down SLOWLY. This works the buttocks and thighs throughout your entire day. (remember everything is cumulative, it all adds up!)
Leg Lifts, Marching and Moving
Do these at any and every opportunity...
Marching throughout your home from one room to the next is one of the best exercises for your legs, thighs, butt and you core area!
If you do these every time you go to the bathroom for instance you will be getting in a number of 'reps' of this leg workout throughout the day!
Turn some music on, and do these to the music...it might look like a weird 'dance' of sorts...it works!
Marching, doing leg circles with each leg, lifting legs, and moving in this way throughout the day will get your legs, thighs and butt in shape very quickly...
Do these as often as you can, and can remember... the more you do these , the more of a habit you will get into in doing this.
People in your household might think you have completely lost it as you March around - 'butt' they will be envious of your butt and thighs!
March...because Marching in March or any month will get you in shape for swimsuit season in June - or sooner.
Image was posted on my Facebook wall from a friend asking me if this was what I meant by 'leg lifts' (No idea where it came from - sorry)
Stimulate - this brings blood flow to the surface of the skin
Use this daily, you can even use it after you applied the skin firming lotion which I suggest
I use this daily in the shower, I will also use this while I am lying on the couch watching television. First one leg then the other.
When you go to put it away - be sure that you 'March' to the bathroom, don't walk...March!
Bliss Fat Girl Slimulator-1 count
You need to focus on blood circulation. This helps reduce the look and feel of cellulite giving the skin a smoother appearance.
That being said without exercise it's useless!
Skin Firming Lotions that add color to the skin and reduces lumpy bottoms!
This lotion does do what it claims. I have reviewed and personally tested a large number of products. This one works best, and does help a considerable amount.
Add this to exercise and you will see a remarkable improvement in no time. Use daily.
Jergens Natural Glow Firm, 7.5 Ounce (Pack of 2)
This is my person favorite skin firming product. It is a self tanner, it doesn't make your skin orange like most tanner do.
Anytime the skin is tanned, it diminishes the look of cellulite big time!!!
If you have pasty white skin, cellulite is far more noticeable.

Scissors are IMPORTANT (don't run with scissors)
I highly recommend 'Scissor Legs' Scissors is what I described for your 'sit down' exercises...
These work best for firming and tightening outer and inner thighs especially.

Do you think I might know what I'm talking about?
I started 'working out' at 53...I am 55 as of today - April 20th, 2013
I do have some idea about getting in shape...I wish I could offer you a 'before' photo...
I can't do that because I was extremely out of shape and over weight...I avoided a camera like the plague!
