I tried a couple workouts that were suggested. Then took the parts i liked from those workouts and created my own routine. Frankenstein.

That can be a good idea, but it is also good to do exercises you aren't too keep on, as they can often be the ones that do the most good. Don't get stuck in a rut and don't get too comfortable with your workouts. It has to be uncomfortable to make any difference, easy is pointless.

Edit: I meant "exercises your not too keen on" ;-)

Cardio is key or for me. Diet n strength help but I never lose if I don't do cardio I just build muscle lol. So cardio

My advice would be to try as wide a variety of workouts as possible, there are loads of good ones on here. Maybe try "make them abs burn" and "go the distance", both are great workouts. You can find them in my liked workouts. Stay focused on what you are doing and why you are doing it. Work hard and you will get results and feel great!

Try your best to stay consistent. For you when you push yourself that will be when you will see results. If you like follow me I will follow you.

Very true. Challenging yourself is part of the growth process, but for newbs, it's nice to start off doing stuff that's a little easier. I always went in really hard and was soon discouraged enough to leave the gym. I started small this time. Built a foundation and now I try pick harder workouts that I think will take me at least a month to do well and two months to "master". For lack of better words. :)
