When I'm having one less than enjoyable day of exercise and hear myself saying, "I don't like doing this anymore", I remind myself that every day is different and yesterday or two days ago I was telling myself how good or healthy it felt. Perspective.
One caveat: if you really find yourself disliking the activity frequently, maybe it's time to change some aspect of your activity or choose a new one.

When I feel like I really want a Coke or other treat, or like it just doesn't matter or nothing's working, I try to put it in perspective. I ask myself, "Is this treat really worth so much to me right now that it's worth not meeting my current goal?"
Really puts it in perspective when you think about having your Coke vs. fitting into a wedding dress or swimsuit, having the ice cream vs. keeping your sugar/cholesterol down, etc.
