I have started finding little ways to get more exercise even during daily tasks. For instance, when I have errands to run, I park a little farther from the building which gives me some walking exercise. These little distance can add up, and it makes me feel successful even when I feel i am too busy to fit in an exercise at home or in the gym.
If you want to make sure Fitness is a Habit, start small with something you know you can do. Start walking or walking stairs at your office (I did this) for 10 minutes 3x a week. Make the habit first--even say it out loud to others--once you have the routine then add minutes or intensity!
Lots of good info is available online about the importance of starting small to create a routine, including 25 Ways to Make Exercise Routine at http://www.thirdage.com/cholesterol/25-ways-to-make-exercise-routine
