A couple of things to consider. Are your 30 minute walks challenging you? I am not saying walking is bad but if you are not sweating, and raising your heart rate then you aren't getting the most out of your workout time. Look into HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) to help you get the most out of your cardio work.

I agree with Nik about the weight lifting. Move to the free weights, you do not have the testosterone to bulk. You will build denser muscles and will look more 'toned' (I hate that expression). If you can perform more than 12 repetitions (preferably 5 to 6) of a exercise with good form, without resting, the weight is not heavy enough. More muscle will also help you burn more calories. Eating more protein will aid in recovery and strength gains.

Turning up the intensity will help you see the results you want.
