How did the night time routine trick work for you? I hate doing all that junk before bed too and honestly it helps me in two ways because I am the first to admit that I am really bad about remembering to do everything before bed. This way I get it done and out of the way and then I kill two birds with one stone HAHA. emoticon

It's no secret how I feel about strength training. There are many benefits, primarily increased metabolism. Good strategy to shake it up!

I was using 10-lb hand weights so I started with a 20-lb kettlebell, and I added a 30 within a month. The minimum recommended for women beginners is 8kg or 18 lbs. a quickie recommendation would be to go to a sporting goods store and see how heavy a dumbbell you can do a minimum of 5 biceps curls with, double it, and get a kettlebell that heavy. my next step is going to be a 40-lb bell. Hope that helps! Here's a link, too, that you might find interesting:
