In brief: Think about why ...
You want to exercise, not just the physical result but why it is important to you.
Some people do it to lose weight and get discouraged because results aren't immediate. But if you feel more energetic or less stressed when you do it, you might be more likely to stick with it. When you think about exercising don't think about the effort, just get to the first step. The rest will take care of itself.
