    I always thought I was fairly self motivated also I have a fight coming up so I thought Id be sweet. But yeah I am constantly finding excuses not to go to the gym diets still shit. I think moving citys (1800miles) and a new group of friends none of whom are interested in MMA has killed any urge for me to train. I still want to fight and once I get to the gym Im fine and have good intensity.

    So how do you guys/gals do it?

    I'm the worst self motivator in the world. The only thing that gets me into the gym and my diet cleaned up is an impending fight. The idea of getting my ass beat in front of hundreds of people because I didn't properly prepare freaks me out.

    I also find it harder to train in the winter, so I that might have something to do with it.


    good luck man.

    Yeah this usually motivates me nicely. Ive beaten this guy before and I confident Ill probably do it again so maybe im not scared enough of this guy being able to beat my arse.

    I didnt consider this but it makes sense Ive moved from the subtropics to a pretty miserable wintery city..

    Thanks guys. :)

    who cares, when its cloudy and chilly no one feels like going to the gym. it can be -40f or 40f and you still wont want to go.

    your gym an outdoor one? i dunno, don't matter what the weather is, as long as I can drive there, I'll want to go to the gym. and my gym is only a block and a half away. but the again, I'm talking about a weight training gym.
    a fight coming up is not really the right time to take time off, but maybe time off is in order. then when you feel like crap cause you didn't train. you'll be more into it. sometimes how i am

    its really hard for me to get out of the winter funk. i end up on my couch doing nothing.

    For me, best option is to take my gym bag to work and not go home without going to the gym. If I dont have work, first thing i do is brush my teeth and head tot he gym.

    If you wait and give yourself time to 'not feel like going' or to make excuses you wont go. Also, try and drink an energy drink or something right before you would normally go to the gym and see if the energy burst is enough to get you out the door.

    good luck man, that's a tough situation.
