Help me fix my rudimentary exercise program. Also, help me not hurt my neck.

So I've been doing some simple work outs lately to get a little more in shape. I've actually seen some results already. Nice.
The thing is, when I do any exercise I feel like I'm doing too much of the exercise with my neck muscles. Am I doing these exercises wrong? Am I doing them wrong enough to injure myself? Or, is this just something I'm being overly alarmed about?
Mostly I've just been doing push-ups, leg drops, bench presses, and renegade rows to tone my core. Don't really know if this is the best group of things to be doing so I'm open to suggestions. I know I should probably work some cardio in to get actual healthier instead of just pretend healthier, but, say, running or something just seems to have way more of a time commitment than what I'm currently doing. Any advice?
Since I'm already a skinny guy my goal is just to feel more healthy and physically capable. I suppose a little toning and muscle building might be nice too.
