I think yoga, (and even more so Pilates) is good for toning, especially if you are holding the poses for a longer time.

With the weights, don't go too light, you don't want it to be easy, but have a little resistance so you get some muscle burn, but can still get out about 12-15 reps.

New goal: more practical new goal, 129, update ticker to reflect that goal.

Thanks for the advice. I'll definitely try to eat the leaner and healthier things while upping calories a bit.

Today was the first day in a long while that I exercised (danced for 20 minutes for cardio). I'm in two challenges for far: exercise for 60/90 minutes a day and yoga 15 days out of the year.

That will get me started anyway. Thanks for the tip on lighter weight/more reps. :)

I bet you could work those two goals at the same time, try to gain muscle and weight. You probably would want to increase over your maintenance calorie range by a couple hundred a day, but I'd say with more lean protein, and healthy, nutritious foods rather than empty calories.

I don't know what your exercise is like, but you should be doing some strenght training, to tone and incresae muscle, or lean body mass you may want to do this at least 3 times a week. If you use a lighter weight and more reps you will absolutely tone and shape your body, women have a really difficult time bulking up, even if they try really hard to do that.

I actually would like to increase my weight by five pounds and then figure out how to build strength and muscle. Oh and hopefully find a way to get rid of the saggy baggy elephant butt that attached itself below my belly button. :)

Anyone have ideas for that? Oh and I need to lift the bum hehe.
