I would say you are definitely gaining strength and upping your metabolism at the same time. As for muscle size, have you done a before/after measurement? I know that as I increased my weights, I lost inches, especially around my calves, biceps/triceps and abs.

It takes more effort on your muscles when you lift weights, so you use more energy, and you continue to burn more energy longer after a weight training session than just with a cardio session.
