I wrote a list of all the reasons I want to lose this weight. It contains "big" reasons - like my upcoming wedding, getting off medication, etc. and "small" reasons - like being able to easily pick something up off the floor.
Whenever I feel my motivation waning, or the urge to eat a cookie, I read over this list several times. It reminds me of why I'm doing this, and that my reasons are so much more important and meaningful than eating a cookie or skipping a workout.
At the top of every hour stop do 25 sit ups and 25 push ups. If you can't do a real push up do the modified ones. This will not only get you into doing some exercise every day but it will also help you to increase the amount of push ups and sit ups you can do. Also helps to add stuff to your Fitness calculator.
