Ok motivation, you just do not work sometimes.
I need someone to kick me in the butt whenever I just don't wanna work out.
Just kidding... how do you pick yourself up when you lack the motabolism or energy?

Could it be the type of workout you're doing? I get a good endorphin rush after my morning sessions that keep me pumped throughout the day and keeps me coming back.

Could be, i'll go back to mild exercises and see if that's it.

Well you could try racquetball It uses everything including your brain it's fun and It feels like your not doing a thing and make you feel light on your feet

Before you quit just remember why you started and push yourself

Just think you are going to visit gym only nothing else once you get there or be ready if you are doing at home.  Think I'll just do 5 minutes  only.  Once you warm up, things get easy. It works for almost always unless I am sick.  Think about body you want

Thanks Maria, I'll do that. My dad likes racquet ball so it makes for a good exercise and bonding experience.

Fast music...but also I look in the mirror and see what I look like now, remember how I looked then, and think of how much better I'm gonna look if I keep going.

I usually put on some heavy metal and when no one is in the gym, I like to pose in front of the mirror as if I had huge muscles. So that's helpful.

Just recently started running Wich is a huge accomplishment for me and heavy metal helps. I also hit the gym and as you workout and you muscles begin to swell it's also big motivation for me. You are looking good tho keep it up.

Thanks, I'm getting ready for ROC Race and just started running also, I did some 5k runs like neon splash dash and electric run, but did more dancing than running so I'm taking this one seriously till I get comfortable enough to try tough murder or Spartan.

I want to compete in a 5k. That's a goal of mine. Always been a bigger guy so competing in a race is something I never thought I would do. Good luck on your upcoming races.

You have to really want it or settle for being happy with yourself - ultimately it is your choice. If you want something bad enough,create goals for yourself, achievable goals and work towards that and always reward yourself so you know you are working towards a better you. Main tips for motivation:
Just getting out the door is the first step and the hardest.
Create a fun workout playlist to help motivate you when you are at the gym.
Find a workout partner, you will both rely on eachother to just get to the gym.
See the big picture, why are you doing this? Health related, self confidence or just an overall lifestyle change. Hope this helps!
