You are all so awesome!!!
And yes, it is so nice that she is trying to follow my example - although previous to now I don't know that I was that good of one. Gives me a little warm fuzzy.
I'm glad to know that the info I had was largely a myth. I have small weights (1 lb) that I think I will let her use. Excellent idea about teaching her the right form instead of just letting her "play" like mommy sometimes. She has played around with the resistance bands I have, trying to do what I do. She does like that!
jamsk8r: That site you referenced is *exactly* what I need - I need it more for my 8 yr old boy than my daughter, but she can benefit a lot from it, too. I was trying to think up or find a kids workout sort of thing that they could do while we are at the fitness center. That is perfect!!
Great ideas and info - thank you all for saving me from trying to fashion fake weights with an empty paper towel roll and styrofoam. LOL! I was so not looking forward to that.
