My biggest motivation is challenge, at the moment i am at 30 days challenge - 3000 squats and 1000 push-ups. Your motivation should be be better version of yourself - it cause nothing just a little training.

It helps to have a detailed fitness goal when you start working out. Saying I want to work out or lose weight isn't specific enough. By having a specific goal such as I want to lose 10 lbs in 2 months or work out 4 days a week is specific and measureable. If you don't have a spefic goal or plan then you can slack off because you don't have anything to measure your progress. When you have a specific plan or goal laid out then it's much harder to skip out on things because you'll know where you are and where you should be in your plan. Also try and find a buddy to work out with or at least ask you how things are going to help motivate and congratulate you or hold you accountable for when you slack off too much. Good luck! BTW, my motivation is to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday which is in the middle of April. I'm tired of being over weight and out of shape.

I think the thing that keeps me motivated is the grind of it all! Some days it's so hard getting up and staying dedicated to MYself, and MY goals but when you do stay dedicated those though days the mental and physical power you feel is like nothing else! I want it everyday!

I try having a positive attitude and having good support of close friends and family staying away from negitivity. Also setting goals for myself and why I would want to achieve them. I try to envision what it would be like to succeed in whatever I was trying to achieve what it would look like feel like the emotions I would be feeling everything and remind myself of all of that everyday to motivate myself so I can get closer to my goal and never give up!:)
