Running on the treadmil or toning exercises. I know you have to lose fat first before you can tone. But I'm talking about during the actual work out session.

All cardio comes last. Especially if you want to burn more calories. The body has an "afterburner" effect, so you want to raise your heartrate at the end of your workout. Do your resistance training, put in 10 killer, high intensity minutes on the treadmill, and you will be burning more calories walking to your car,  driving home, and sitting on the couch watching honey boo boo than when you were actually working out. The body burns a crap ton of calories trying to get your body's temperature back to normal

Could be! Could also be the caffeine ;) I am a total advocate for green tea. I drink it religiously. I even drop kicked an old lady in the face just because I love green tea so much. Well, that never really happened. But given the opportunity, I just might.

Good to know because I usually do cardio before I lift weights.

I do a yoga or Pilates class then 30 minutes on the eliptical. If I do cardio first I'll be too tired to do yoga or Pilates class.

You should do what feels best for you. Studies of as late indicate cardio before resistance training give better results in fat los as in after. But thats all just things aside. If you feel good with doing cardio first, do it first. If you feel better with doing it after do it after. Its all about what you can do for a longer period. It also depends what kind of cardio and weighttrainig you are going to do. I believe the situation will call for different decisions, but doing what feels best always is the right one.
