    Eat more. 1600 cal/day is nothing. 90 mins-2 hours is a long time; shorter and more intense workouts will probably do more for you. No need to warmup on the treadmill before lifting. I'd also save the stretching until you're done lifting.

    As far as your routine goes, you're focusing on isolated movements way too much. To build a good base strength you need compound movements involving your whole body. This routine is awesome for beginning: http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=1574598&page=1&pp=25

    I would do cardio on off days only or at least at a different time of the day, not at the same time as lifting.

    You're strength is not bad at all for a girl. 90 mins of cardio is quite a lot though.

    :hahano:

    I will post pics as soon as I get to where I want to be. I'm 5'7" and I want to weigh approx 120-130 lbs. (I would ideally like to weigh 120 but for the look I'm going for 130 is a more idealistic goal) I want to have muscle, muscle you can see. Not just muscle that's there when I flex. Basically I want to look like a "cut" girl but not a roid freak :barf: Right now I'm in what I will call the fat loss/basic muscle build stage.

    isnt 90 minutes on the treadmill a little too much? I would just do a little higher intensity and lower the time.

    Read the two stickies about fat loss by christophers. His first post in both threads are gold mines. I still think your total cals for a day are low but that really depends on your own body. I'd up the protein to help you keep the muscle on while losing fat. This becomes even more important the lower your total cals go. Good luck!

    awesome thanks. i guess i'll have to start eating more eggs and tuna. and i was suprised at how low my total cals were for today. i'm usually around 1600-1800. and yes a big part to me is keeping the muscle...so i will take your advice and eat more protein. can anyone explain to me why this will help me keep the muscle though?

    why do we need it?

    Protein is a nutrient made up of amino acids. There are two types of amino acids. Non-essential Amino Acids can usually be synthesized by a healthy body from the foods that we eat each day. The Essential Amino Acids however, must be obtained through the daily diet.

    Protein has a number of important roles in the body, including:

    ----Repair of body cells
    ----Build and repair muscles and bones
    ----Provide a source of energy
    ----Regulate many important metabolic processes in the body
