What is it going to take???!!!

The problem I have with my fitness routine is that the very important second part is missing...strengthening. I have cardio to the point where I kick ass and take names, but have yet to take that next step. I have a perfectionist personality WHICH I HATE because it stands in my way so many times. I am actually afraid to start strengthening exercises because I don't want to fail...you know...its all or nothing. Plus the fact that I am in my cozy little routine and I don't like to get out of that little niche.
I cannot stand my flabby arms while running when I am checking my Polar. I want to get rid of that belly and I know what I need to do. I want to get rid of the flab on my upper back. I want to tone my legs that cardio cannot accomplish. I just can't get started.
I had a most rewarding walk/run this morning going 7.79 miles burning a buttload of calories though. I started out very sluggish, but finished strong so no one can take that away from me.
If anyone has any ideas on how I can get myself started into a set strengthening habit...I plead with you to make suggestions. Why do we need to be our own worst enemies?
Oh how I get so frustrated with myself!
