My motivation came from linking two problems I had together;
I'm not a morning riser (but need to be up for classes), and I habitually put things off.
If I say I'll exercise today, I'll keep thinking I'll do it later until I start thinking that its too late and 'oh well'. Also, waking up in the morning was an arduous effort *every* time, And I'd be feeling half-dead all through my lessons as if I hadn't slept at all.
It took some effort to pull it off at first, but I started to exercise before class (yes, waking up even earlier -_-; ). The first two weeks were hard, but I noticed that by the time I showered, I was far more awake than I would have been had I had the extra hour (I gave myself 15min to just crawl out and start exercising) of sleep! Also, I stopped getting sleeping around 11am and I had more energy all day. On TOP of that, I somehow seemed to eat less without really meaning to!
Also, after 2 weeks of painfully pushing myself out of bed, it became more or less a habit, and if I missed a day I was in a slump until the next morning.
