Keep a log
Tracking your workouts and progression will demonstrate the gains you are making.
I know this may seem like a pain, but it does help. I have tried both ways. If you are trying to reach specific goals, then you need to know what you have accomplished and move it up a little bit the next week so you can keep your progression going. If you get tired out, then step it down for a week.
This also applies to nutrition. I have heard it so many times, "I didn't realize how many calories I was eating until I started tracking every bite. Now I know why I wasn't losing weight." Keep track of your calories and try to stay on track.
