In brief: See what you want

One of the best motivational tools is to really clearly hold in your mind what it is that you want.
Is there a picture in your mind that you can hold on to when you feel "too tired" to do some exercise? Another tool is to create healthy habits. To add a fitness habit start very small (5 minutes a day of exercise) but do something every day (including today) for a couple of weeks. Then increase.
