When I don't feel like working out I tell myself that I only have to do 15 min and then I can stop. Usually by the time I get to the 15 min I am through the hardest part and I end up having a great workout but if after 15 min I don't want to work out anymore, I don't. Don't lie to yourself.

Set practical goals. Don't set up a goal to work out 60 min's a day if you barely work out now. For example, set a goal for 15 min's and if you work out more, then work out more, but the bare minimum is 15 min's. I already knew this but it sunk in after being on SP.
