    How long have you been lifting? And for how long was your recent break in routine? That will make a huge temporary difference in motivation, energy levels, power-out (to an extent, depending on many factors)...

    I'm guessing you're having trouble completing your routine because you're not enjoying it; you were at a certain level before and you're competing with yourself (or beating yourself up) to get that back? Two hour sessions are definitely hard-core in my book (I'm assuming you're putting in enough intensity or RPE...). How many times a week are you training? What does a typical routine consist of for you? Are you able to sufficiently manage normal stress levels on a daily basis? Are you getting enough restorative sleep and eating nutritiously (and eating enough to support your fitness goals)? These are just a few general questions to think about...
    Fact: My first-generation uncle was a boxer who fought Sugar Ray Robinson! He also fought in the war, sacrificing the career he deeply loved, so people could have the right to freedom.

    if you just got back in the gym after a long break, it's normal to be tired or not feel it that much the first week.
    Stick with it for 2 weeks and you'll feel a lot better and more energized on the third.
    Once you see some gains, you'll be motivated a lot more.

    Also always know why you're lifting. You need a goal because otherwise you can't draw energy from it.

    And finally: Motivation sometimes wears off. Discipline is what gets you to the finish line. even if you're not feeling it, have the discipline to lift hard and to finish all your exercises.

    How old are you? Leave it. What music do you love for workout? Do you have a inspirational music list? You can start with this on. I have rammstein. In this type of moment I listen to them. You can have your own choice. Try with that.

    It really takes awhile to acclimate into working out again and having that routine! So, it's really about sticking to it and then getting to that point of 'hell yeah! I'm crushing this workout!'
