Hey Leslie Welcome to LWL we\ME LUVS newbies here

*I* personally can spend 2 hours in the gym working weights I love it ... because of time and commitments I usually spend 50-60 mins in the weightroom and about 30-45 mins on cardio/running ...Some days though I am in for 30 mins weights 30 mins cardio then, buh bye , things to do places to go. So saying all this, if you want to continue with weight training you have to find something that works for your own personal schedule. There is nothing wrong with going into the gym for 30-45 mins 2-3 times/week, do what works for you or you will stop going ... Weight training is proven to be so beneficial for women that it's not something that I feel should be left out of our workouts so anytime you can make it in to the gym for a weight session is good in my books...

Journaling works very well for me... I have a spiral note book that I log the weights I did on every workout and then the next time I do chest, let's say, I will bring the weights up a bit just for *fun* ... It's all a mind game but it works

Laura has a great idea of working with a trainer to improve your tennis game.
