Before I fall asleep, I tell my self that I will wake up "well rested"and put on my workout clothes. I think about what snack I'll have first, and decide how long to exercise. (At least 10 minutes). The rest of the day I will plan while on the treadmill. Then I start counting sheep. 1...2...3...4...5. .......zzzzzzzzzzzzz
By doing this, I wake-up without having to make any decisions. Just get started, and the rest of the day will follow.

When doing strength training, I find I can begin to get frustrated when I'm counting reps, particularly on the third set. The solution for me is to count down instead of up. I start with 10, 12, or whatever my top count is and count down to one. Then I get more excited as I go bc I'm almost done.
