Ive stopped working out n eating clean for a month now. No doubt that ive gained more fats but thats okay, because i was skinny before that. Now i want to turn those fats to muscle. How should i do that? Should my weights be heavier or more reps? What about cardio? Thank u for replying ! :)

Cardio is Good for burning fat. For gaining muscle you should train with heavier weights. For example, you could start with max. weights for 6 reps in the 1. set and then use lower weights for 6-12 reps in the following sets. Dont forget to warm up :)

What do you do when your workout fatigued? I workout about 3 or 4 days a week only for 45 mins to 1 HR depending on what I'm doing. But lately ive been so uninterested in working out I just go to gym and feel like a robot just to do it for the sake of doing it, any suggestions on how to get my motivation back or try something new?

That's it: Try sth. new! Change your exercises. Google, look in books and magazines, ask somebody in the gym for new exercises for the muscles you want to train: weights, TRX, body weight... Think about it before your training and have fun doing new exercises every time. You could also set up new goals, like exercises or weights you want to master.
