I like my workout plan but it requires me to work hard 6 days a week. I don't really want to make it easier because I like my plan but I'm not accomplishing my goals so I keep thinking maybe it's just too hard or unrealistic. I don't want to change it though because I'm stubborn. I think I need to change some of the other things in my life so that I can get my workouts in more consistently. I was doing really good for months but now I keep falling off the horse and getting back on it.
I decide if they are too unrealistic if I cannot get out of bed the next day. Or if I'm feeling hungry all the time (too many cut calories).
I'm a lazy person by nature. I don't like to actually have to do anything. So even getting in 1-2 workouts is a big deal... the fact right now I've got 4... is really pushing it. But I know it's not unrealistic, because in total it is barely 90 minutes of exercise. But it's the type of exercise that it is, that will keep me going...

If it something I never meet, then I decide its unrealistic and try to break it up. For example, I tried starting couch to 5K in Jan/Feb...and after week 2 I was dying. I knew I was not ready to go onto week 3. I took a few months and did intervals on the treadmill and Jillian Michaels, and more walking all to build up my endurance and started again and now I'm on week 5.
Of course you want your goals to push you, but not to the point its demotivating.
Maybe try revising your goals and then working up from there? Do not feel shame in not being able to do something...just means you need to try something new and work your way up to being able to do what you really want to do
