Many people make a vision board/collage/goal-board or whatever you want to call it. You can put quotes and motivational images on it and hang it were you can see it everyday. Well, I created a "mini-vision board" I carry in my purse and look at any time of the day.
Every time you are done a workout, write what was so great about it on a small piece of paper (e.g. "I felt strong when I ran today"). Then fold the paper and add it to your motivation jar. When you are feeling less motivated, you can reach in and read a few papers to get you pumped up to workout again.
Stop telling yourself what you can't do and instead focus on the things you can do and are doing. You will be amazed at the things you will accomplish when you tell yourself "I can do this" and then keep moving forward towards your goals!!!
