I'm not new to the whole workout scene, however, I need a weekly routine to keep me on track and reach my goals. I'm the type where if I have a plan set up, I'm 99% likely to follow through with it. Please help :)

How about a 6 week routine.  I have done this in the past and found it challenging. 

Pick 8-10 exercises(covering all body areas -- legs, arms, chest and back.)

Determine your 1 RM max for each exercise( the max amount of weight you can lift properly 1 time)

For 2 weeks perform 30 reps(without resting if possible) of each exercise at 50% of your 1 RM max.  ( ie your 1 RM is 100 your workout weight is 50 )

At weeks 3-4.  Do 40 reps at 40%

For weeks 5-6. Do 50 reps at 30%

Perform every other day with cardio and abdominals mixed in on non lifting days.
