You have solid intentions of achieving your goals, but some factors might be getting in the way: Time? Injury? Know-how? A series of personal training sessions would be the perfect place to start when you're new (or returning) to the world of fitness. You need a good teacher: someone who can show you the proper way to work out, recommend a good nutrition plan and motivate you to accomplish your goals.
You have a good grasp on what you need to do when you get to the gym, and you're comfortable with your normal routine. But in order to reach the next level and see results, you could use motivation and expert advice from a personal trainer. You need someone who can teach you new techniques specific to your body, challenge you to improve and show you how to get the best workout out of the time you have.
You've got a good thing going and you understand your body and fitness level. But because the body naturally adapts to exercise after 4-6 weeks, it would help to get an outside source who can ramp up your usual routine and get you over that fitness plateau. You'd be surprised how much more you can do when someone is pushing you!
