I have a really hard time finding something that I can stick to & that works without getting discouraged or stopping mid work out simply because I "can't do it"

I used the Kayla intsines BBG for about 2 months before I called quits, I stopped because I felt like I wasn't getting results and that I was just rushing through the workouts and wasn't concentrating on my form because I just wanted it to be over with.
My goal is to tone, I hold most of my weight in my butt and legs. I am 5'7 and 135-138 pounds.

What do you find is most effective? I don't have access to a gym and my schedule is literally all over the place so I only have about 45 mins a day. It's so easy for me to get discouraged and feel bad about myself. I think to some degree I may have a little bit of BDD.

I Want nice toned arms and legs, the muscle is there but I have a small amount of fat that I just can't seem to get off.

I know diet is a huge portion of seeing results and I eat very well, rarely consumer refined sugars and alcohol and for the most part have pretty decent portion control.

If anyone can help me or has any tips, programs, plans, pre workout supplements or words of wisdom I would sincerely appreciate it, and can send uou the BBG if you're interested THANKS IN ADVANCED

Perhaps doing a search in the forum for "Mommy Got Muscles". There's a three week plan that may help keep you on task as well as about 30 other exercises of various levels to help get the results you're looking for. A few others have found the results they want going through these wo's. Staying motivated ultimately relies on you. Walking before you run. These things take time. The more you focus in the beginning leads to greater rewards in the end result

I'm in a very similar boat, and have found that the ten minute work outs are awesome! I can do a couple in a day or do one and go for a jog or something. The flexibility offered by the ten minute sessions has been really helpful for me. And it's always easy to push yourself to do something that's only ten minutes. I used to take longer smoke breaks!

Also, all of the Mommy Got Muscles workouts are 5 - 15 minutes and include a good amount of cardio plus a variety of workouts to keep things fun

Find something you enjoy doing then you won't get bored. I can't keep up with a workout but I can walk my dogs to the park and I love playing soccer with my nephew, these things count towards your exercise. If you want to lose in your legs take a brisk walk around your neighborhood or on your lunch break. Park at the edge of the parking lot, window shop the entire mall before you start going in the stores, or find an activity you like. I like taking pictures on walks so there's always something to see and It pushes me a little further than I would like to go.

I would Take a wild guess here that your meals are healthy but don't suffice in terms of vitamins and Magnesium or iron or something. You are just fatigued from all this work. Happened to me too and got over it with some vitamin D and Magnesium pills. You don't lack motivation you lack the energy to be motivated.
