Other than losing the bit of fat I already have.. I just want more muscle, less mass. Don't know how I would go about that. Only have a 25 lb dumbell. I don't have all these tires and sleds for strengthening. Don't know a workout routine that would do that. >.< I'm sure I'll find something browsing through these wicked forums though.

I train to start minimizing the effects of post menopause bone loss. I'm not that close to periomenopause (I'm only 30) but close enough for me. My short term goal is to flatten out my "mommy pooch" that I've gained from both of my pregnancies. It's by no means a big bulge (I'm a size 2 after all) but it's big enough for me to notice.

I took a weight training class in college a few semesters back to get tips on proper weight lifting techniques and ideas for different things that can be done beyond the bench press and squats. My bench went from about 60 pounds to 90 pounds within a few months and my leg press was up to 400 pounds. I plan of getting back in it this fall to finish up my kinesiology requirements for my degree.

Balance is definitely preferred, if you are purely training for looks you will most likely over train certain parts of your body (biceps and pecs) and under train other parts that are vital for supporting your body (back and shoulders and legs)

I would like to stay healthy and fit even if I'm 60, 70 or older and hope to continue doing what I am doing now.

Strength is not a direct indication of how you will physically look. There are many strong men that don't have a physique just looked at the NFL and their linemen. It will always depend on how you train, what you are training for and than there are other factors such how much rest you get, how much fluids you take and your diet. And then there is the biggest factor of all, your genetics.

I could eat like a slob and continue to lift heavy thus getting stronger but never physically looking better. It isn't till I implement proper eating habits and introducing cardio would I start to physically look better.

True.
Most bodybuilders look much more muscular and pumped up than powerlifters, but powerlifters are much stronger. (for the most part).
