Question for 2/week routine

I do a full-body weight routine twice a week. My goals are general health/strength, & to aid in losing weight. My question is should I do the same routine both of those days, or have 2 different routines? I ask because I wonder if 2 different routines doesn't allow my body to get used to specific ex...

KPj: What I do is have 2 full-body routines that I alternate, and do 3 x's a week, every other day. 1 week is routine A/B/A, then next week B/A/B, and so on.

Before, I was using the treadmill, stairmaster, and taking Spinning classes for my cardio part of the routine. I want something different, but mostly something that will motivate my butt back into the gym. I always liked the focus on my body with weight-training, just like yoga. I'm thinking of this...

I haven't been exercising like that for some time now, and want to be healthy again, plus lose fat and/or weight. My problem is finding motivation to get to the gym, and I've...
