How to mentally motivate myself to work out

I was in the Navy for 14 years and only worked out every 6 months as required by the physical readiness test. Then I did a deployment to Iraq for all of 2010. I was getting healthy in many aspects of my life and wanted to start working out. I made a commitment to go to the gym every day until I actually enjoyed it. After a week and a half the soreness subsided and that was a great motivator to continue. By day 40, I was to the point of going without thinking about it. A new habit is generally formed after doing something repeatedly for 30–45 days. Soon, I had to force myself to take days off from the gym as results were being seen and I truly enjoy working out now. Commit to 45 days of working out. Get past the soreness window and push on. You'll love it.
