What do you do when you lose motivation half-way through your workout? When this happens I can't get back into it.

my big motivation right now is my wedding in october! i know once i'm home it's hard for me to motivate myself to go workout (i love sleep) so i go to the gym right after work. This is the only way i stay consistent with my workouts.
I agree with other posters. If I can't control a situation, then I just go to what I CAN control. It used to be food (I felt that I was in control when I was eating constantly, but I was actually OUT of control!) but I just pull out my exercise mat and do some mat exercises.
Don't ever let anyone else tell you who you can be

Working out is in MY CONTROL. When I keep opening the refrigerator even though I'm not hungry, I put on walking shoes and take a walk. Even if it isn't at the same energy level as my regular workouts, it helps distract me and improve my mood.

When you think stress is out of control...
what you eat is one thing you CAN control; and exercise is a great stress reliever.
