Are you pairing exercise with healthy eating? Healthy eating really does make a bigger impact on losing weight (although exercising gets you toned!).

If you’d like to tone, I would add heavy lifting instead of time on the elliptical. Lifting will help tone way more than cardio will 🙂

Something for your legs: jump squats, lunges…

I agree with PP. The elliptical isn’t going to help you tone. Try lifting, or at least more intense body weight exercises (squal jumps and lunges like PP suggested – also burpees). I would recommend that you get a kettlebell (25-26 lbs) and look up kettlebell workouts. If you do a 20 minute kettlebell workout instead of the elliptical each morning, I can pretty much guarantee you’ll see more/better results.

ashley01:  If your goal is to tone I’d skip the elipitical all together, except for maybe a warm up (which you need since you are just out of bed).

For best results you’ll want vairety.  What about doing something like the 30 minute shred in the morning?  Or one of those apps that give you a different HIIT workout?

If you are really focused on the eliptical + 2 exercises thing, then I guess I’d go with squats and pushups. 

I’d also say that if you are already working out a lot yo umight get better bang for your buck focusing on nutrition.   You could spend that 40 mins per day on meal prep.
