I keep my gym bag in my car and go to the gym close by my work. If I stopped at home I wouldn't leave again to go work out!
The great thing is that by going to the gym nearby the office, I spend the heaviest traffic time working out, and by the time I'm done, traffic is moving again. I time my food so that I eat a snack before I leave so I am not rushing home for dinner.

I pack my clothes for the gym every single day when I go to work. That way, even on days I don't want to go, I don't have an excuse. I pack my clothes the night before and put my gym bag by my purse by the door--I won't forget it. When I leave work I have no excuse not to go--I don't have to go home first--I have everything I need.
When you don't really have enough time to go to the gym (or like me - you just don't have one near to where you live and you don't have a car) - invest in your home gym. Yoga mat (I got mine for 6 EUR), resistance bands (sale - 5 for a set!!!), stability ball and a jump rope. And you have all you need to start moving!
I got all those things (and the overall bill is still less than a membership at the gym) and I can squeeze in a portion of exercise anytime in between. I am independent from anything, I decide when and how long I train. And having so much to choose from at home, I do much more.
