It is a myth that lifting weights will give women big muscles. Weight-training will help you burn more calories throughout the day, and there is no way that a woman can get bulky unless she is consuming a high amount of calories on top of lifting very heavy weight.

With hard work and a clean diet, almost anyone can improve the appearance of your abs. Some people can even achieve flat abs with visible definition, if they can get their body fat low. Your potential for flat abs depends to some degree on genetics.

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is the pain and stiffness felt in muscles several hours to days after unaccustomed or strenuous exercise. The soreness is felt most strongly 24 to 72 hours after the exercise. After such exercise, the muscle adapts rapidly to prevent muscle damage, and thereby soreness, if the exercise is repeated.

It is possible to get thinner without actually seeing a change in your weight. This happens while you lose body fat while gaining muscle mass. Your weight may stay the same even if you lose inches, a sign that you are moving in the right direction.
