I need help, as i lack major motivation for eating right and exercising.
I seem to skip meals and not prepare meals because I am not motivated enough to do so. I workout 3x a week for at most 2-3 weeks and then stop for a few weeks. I workout in my garage by myself. Injuries do sometimes plague me, but mostly motivation for cooking up a meal and hitting the gym.
I am thinking of signing up to a local gym, where that might bring in some motivation. Anyone else got ideas to increase my motivations for eating and working out? Thanks heaps!

you must set realistic goals, if you set yourself up for failure it can be devastating to your motivation and confidence especially if just starting out
set a weight goal (i want to weigh xxx by xx-xx-xxxx)
set goals for weight you want to do on bench rpess or one of your favorite excercises

If you wanna get it... You gotta want it
I find myself trying to skip meals just out of pure laziness this is where a good whey protein can help ya out
also if you are getting injured while working out try to keep in mind Quality over Quanity
good perfect form reps you may have to reduce weights but you will get a better pump and burn without possible injuries.Jack3d (old school)

You have to find your "Why". Why do you want to work out and it should be deeper than just wanting to get big, it should be something that drives you. Then you base your goals around that fire inside you. Listen to your favorite music when you workout, watch motivational videos and keep yourself accountable!

Here's a shot. Try asking yourself "would I rather?" questions. "Would I rather skip this meal and stay skinny and feel pathetic, or take 5 minutes to eat so I can reach my bodybuilding goals, look sexy, and feel awesome?"
Obviously, you'll need to find out your "whys"
What is the pain of staying the same and what is the pleasure of making a change?
Get clear on WHY you want to eat right and exercise, and then remind yourself of those things with a "would I rather" type of question.
This is an extremely brief exercise, but hopefully it gets you going.
