I second what all the others are saying.
I absolutely HATE to exercise, despise being sweaty, abhore the after-ache ...... I never have trouble finding an excuse NOT to exercise. And, when I finish, I do not get that lovely "endorphin high" that so many people wax eloquent about.
However, I DO like knowing that I did something for my health and that I had the self discipline to do something good even though I didn't especially like it.
I try to find different kinds of exercise that I hate less than others. I don't like to run so I never set myself up to fail by planning a run or any kind of sport that involves running. I do enjoy walking so, when the weather is nice, I walk in the evenings and bring a resistance band to do some strength training as I walk. In miserable weather I do a Leslie Sansone walking video or ride a stationary bike or walk on the treadmill. I know swimming is a good exercise -- I just happen to hate that one too.
The point is, try to find something that is acceptable to you, even if it's not your dream of how to spend a given block of time.
Good luck! Happy moving!
