First, I trust you have an exercise program, of some sort or, at least, have been thinking about starting one. If you have trouble keeping up a program, try cutting back on your expectations.       Perhaps you're trying to work in too many hours of fitness time.  Try 10 minutes 3 times a week. That may not be a lot of exercise, but it's better than doing no exercise.

Once you experience success with a small program, you'll no doubt want to increase the activity.  As they say, "Nothing breeds success like success".  But you're thinking, "I can't even get motivated to meet a reduced goal!"  Okay, let's go back and take your workout routine one step at a time.
If you find yourself not wanting to exercise, at least put on your workout attire or pop your aerobics DVD.  Chances are that you'll feel more like getting into it.  If that still doesn't work try these tips:
  • Schedule your exercise early if your motivation tends to dissolve as the day wears on or later in the day if you're not a morning person.
  • Before retiring at the end of the day, lay out your exercise clothes so you can't miss them in the morning.
  • Consider joining a health club or center.  Check out some that are nearby your home or work place.
  • Get your family and friends to help coach you.  You might even join a class for structure and ask a friend or family member to nudge you if you start to slack off.
According to a Louis Harris poll, lack of time is that most common excuse for not exercising.  But, studies also show that people who exercise have about 25 hours of leisure time a week, the same as non-exercisers.

It all boils down to a question of priorities, not time.  If you enjoy the exercise, you'll find the time.
