Getting motivated to start working out is the hardest part of working out!!! When I first started working out I would get to the gym maybe once a week and I had the hardest time committing to actually doing it... If you find a video set or workout that you find fun it helps a lot, and the more you do it the more you get motivated to keep going! Just push through the fact that you don't have the motivation--force yourself to exercise,, force yourself to keep exercising, and after a while of doing it it's not such a chore. The more you exercise the more energy you have. Eating healthy helps too :)
Start with a small doable goal. Maybe you only have 15 minutes...just do that. I started my weight loss journey with the goals drink more water and limit fast food. I felt so much better after doing just those two things, That made it easier to do more. Set yourself up for success and keep going...
First, don't think of exercise only as going to the gym, although that certainly qualifies. Start, with improving your activity level. For me, I had to commit to not sitting on couch after dinner. Do the dishes, go for a walk, do laundry, whatever. If you want to exercise, that's good too. The best way to get motivated that I found was to step on a scale, look at yourself in the mirror, or try on a pair of pants that used to fit. Then commit to make small changes every day. Good luck, we've all been there.
