Somebody once told me that for the first week, it didn't matter if I worked out or not as long as I got changed into my workout gear, got my towel ready and warmed up. I didn't have to do the workout, but once you get in the habit of doing the rest of the things that go along with working out, then the actual working out is easy to do.
I also think it helps to have somebody else to work out with, or at least who knows you want to work out. Shame and peer pressure are pretty good motivators.
