Hi Gym Bunny
It's difficult to say. Given that you've done a bit more weight training than before, I would say quite a lot of it could be weight training related. In three months, it's very easy to gain 2kg of muscle mass, and so it might be that all of it is muscle. In fact, you may even have gained 4kg of muscle and lost some fat mass, that's how difficult it is to tell.
The only way to really know this for sure is to have a full body composition assessment done, but that's expensive and can be inaccurate and maybe misleading. My advice is to not worry too much about the one or two kilograms, and rather focus on whether you are getting fitter and stronger. If you are, then you should be pleased with the changes, unless you feel that you're getting much bigger and starting to bulk up too much.
But yes, it's possible to gain 2kg of muscle in three months, quite easily.
