When I find myself off track on exercise I will start small. Maybe a 15 minute walk and build from there. Eventually the 15 minute walk turns into two 15 minute walks then to getting up in the morning to hit the gym.
If you have the time today to exercise, just do it. Don't put it off until tomorrow thinking you'll have the time then. If your life is anything like mine something will pop up and you won't be able to get it in tomorrow either and then that's two days without exercise. Get it done today because you never know what will happen tomorrow.
Take a 15 minute walk or do some strength training, whatever it takes to get the exercise in.
I live in the city with a fairly vast transit system.
Leave 10-15 minutes earlier than usual and walk to a train stop that distance away from where you normally go. You will start out the day with a 15 minute walk. Do the same thing with 15 minutes at lunch and if not too dark when you come home from work.
By the time you arrive home, you have incorporated 45 minutes walk time into your day. 248
