There are lots of resources available with suggestions. Here are just a few of mine.
Make sure you stay as much as possible on the same schedule whether you are working or not...it's easier to get up at the same time every day than to keep making adjustments. If the snooze button is a temptation, put a loud alarm well across the room, so you have to get up to turn it off.
Do you like to exercise first thing when you rise? Coach Nicole actually admitted in a blog that in winter, when it's cold and dark, she sleeps in the basic exercise layer she wears so she doesn't have to get cold to get going. She adds the pieces she needs to go out. It's summer, so that's not going to work, but putting your workout duds right by the (now distant) alarm might motivate you.
Do you have a buddy who would make you accountable? someone you trust...if you make a mutual commitment to meet for exercise at x time every day, you'll both benefit and because you are counting on each other, that may motivate you.
Obviously (and this is in all the articles) pick something you like doing. I can't ever get motivated to go swimming, for instance, b/c I hate chlorinated pools. My dogs make me go out for walks--and that's where my daily routine starts.
Don't try to make too many changes all at once.
...and (last bit, I promise) don't make the scale your only motivation/measure. One of my buddies is losing inches, but the scale hasn't budged. Her pants are falling off, though. Look for different, varied ways to assess your progress--and ONE OF THE BEST is to give yourself daily, visible credit for doing healthy things b/c if you get the process in place you WILL get results.
