Yes, you can use whole words as abbreviations and they should be listed in the key as in your example 2.

For me (this is NOT a rule), I always make my abbreviations as lower-cased words which (to me anyway) make it a bit easier to distinguish the abbreviation from the actual table heading. And, in the key, I would say:

[begin TN] Key to abbreviations used:

motivation Motivation to Learn the New Skill

strategies Strategies I Used to Learn This Skill [end TN]

If you used mo for Motivation to Learn the New Skill, that is a key - not an abbrevation.
