I have the right mind set to workout and eat right. Stayed in it for a good month or so but then I hurt my ankle and it all went downhill. I went back to not working out and drinking sodas and eating fried food (working at a restaurant makes it hard not to). I just cannot seem to get back in the habit of healthy ways again and stick with it. Need some daily motivation to remind myself to choose the healthy path. Suggestions anyone?

Im in the same boat. I got really into it and was making progress but truth be told I got lazy. So keep up the hard work and remember the hard work is worth the end result.

You got it. That all you need is a vision board and a workout journal. And also a positive mind out how you want to feel and look

I know what are you exactly trying to say. I had the same problem
(Not an injury, just to busy with work). You have to join or just talk with people who worked hard. Just to remind yourself "hey I can do it too"  post your result, challenge some friends make it like a fun game. People are motivated by your progress, as well you are going to be motivated by theirs.  Is not going to be easy getting back on track but hey one day at a time. And it will become more a hobbie than a workout. You can do it!

Good suggestions from everyone replying already.  One thing I'd add - no-one (absolutely no-one) is motivated every day. And that's ok. When your motivation drops after a really good period of working out, it's easy to end up doing nothing.  If you can't match or beat what you did yesterday then what's the point right?  That's how I used to feel sometimes anyway. 

Last week I worked 60 hours, and 50+ the week before. Towards the end of the 2nd week I was exhausted and didn't work out for 3 days.  I just started out again slow, and I'm building up again without putting too much pressure on myself.  If you expect miracles from yourself every day you won't keep it up.  Stay focused on your goals and do your best :-). Best of luck! :-)

Work gets me as well. 70+ a week. Tough to stay motivated.

You're beautiful & should feel awesome about yourself! Maybe if youre not happy at the moment buy a smaller shirt or shorts so youll be motivated. Missing a few days is fine and no one says every workout has to make you sore. Get a scale that measures muscle and body fat so youll truely see the difference if youre weight goes up it may be because you got more muscle. Ya never know(:

You have to be fair to you, and your feelings. I have had alot of family death in the last few months. It is tough but no challenge is impossible if you are willing to give it your all. I work in a restaurant too. I stopped drinking as muchvand I eat only light food. I try not to eat later than 8pm

Im kind of in the samw boat. I started working out again after a hiatus started with hiking.and i fractured my ankle. As soon as i get cleared to work out again i will be on it 100% i cant wait! What motivates me is to prove to myself that i can come back from an injury and go harder than before. You can do it!!
