  1. Great tips (especially yoga, which I’m totally in love with). You know what I’ve actually been a fan of, as well? I was a fairly hardcore runner and could run for such long spurts, but my body shape wasn’t changing, so I started incorporating heavy weights. Holy crap, it made a huge difference! I’m at the smallest I’ve ever been but probably stronger and more developed than ever. There’s a lot of myths out there about getting too big while lifting, but unless you’re eating a crapload, it’s just not going to happen.

    • Hi Jess. Aw that’s great to hear about your results using weights! I have heard that weight training is a great way to tone down and that it keeps your metabolism burning hours after the work-out. I’ll definitely incorporate heaving weights into my next work-out session. May I ask what type of weights training you do and how many reps of each etc?
