If you find you have a hard time finding the motivation to workout on your scheduled days or just at all try this! Buy a calender and put it up in your room or where you would like. Write you workout schedule on there, go do it, and when you come back put a smiley face showing how completing that workout made you feel. The next time you feel like skipping a work out look at the smiley face and it will remind you how good you felt after finishing it. And why skip something that makes you happy? :)

Breaking Down Something Big Into Something Smaller Baby Steps
This could be under motivation as well since the process could be used in any area of your life. I am breaking down the the traing workouts for the sprnt triathalong I am trainig for into baby steps. The are 14 weeks to go each week I need 2 running workouts, 2 cycling workouts, 2 swimming workout
I also need 2-3 strength workouts a week. This means in 14 weeks I need to complete 112 worouts which is crazy. So I now have 14 big steps each with 8 babysteps.that means I have competed 6 baby steps so far.
many people need workout partners to have motivation, but workout buddies come and go. when no one is standing by your side, you still have to move your butt. resolve inside yourself to make changes and those habits will stick and you wont need someone to push or pull your as much
