I read this really great column in Runner's World a couple of weeks ago but I can't find the link. The gist of it was that you will always feel better after exercise than you would if you didn't exercise at all. The first 5 minutes are always the hardest and after that its cake.

Just remember, making excuses burns Zero calories per hour.
I have been struggling with motivation for the last week. I start off well in the mornings and I am fine till about lunch time, then everything goes haywire. Been trying to figure out what keeps me motivated in the morning, so that I can continue with it in the afternoon-evening-night
Where do you have your eliptical? I put mine in my living room , next to the coach, and in front of the tv. That way when I I am watching tv with the kids, I have no reason at all not to watch while burning cals. Great job staying on track with cals in, for me that's the hard part.

Getting myself out of the house and going for a walk can be a challenge for me. What helps, for me, is downloading an audible book onto my ipod. I have to listen to it before it disappears off my device and the only time I listen is when I'm walking.

At least 80% of weight loss has to do with nutrition so that you are sticking to your food program.
Sometimes when I am not feeling like cardio I set a timer for 10 minutes and usually once I do that 10 minutes I am seduced into doing more...but if not at least 10 minutes is better than none. To avoid the sneering machine maybe you could take a walk outside ...

To exercise today. Channeling my inner sloth but sticking to food program. The elliptical machine is sneering at me.
