Set a Goal - it all starts with a setting a goal and committing to it. And make this goal realistic. If you're new to working out, set a goal to run a 5k. Just find something that you feel will challenge you in your own fitness levels and work to achieve this goal in 2013.
Stay Focused - There are going to be times when you just don't want to get out of bed and go workout. Push through those times and get up & get rolling!
Mix up your routine - As a rule of thumb, never use the same routine for more than 4 weeks. Muscle confusion is the key and there are great programs out there that can help you with this. (P90X, Crossfit, and my personal favourite Nike Training Club )
Don't get Discouraged - It's not always easy, but keep your head up and push through! Don’t worry about what others are doing, focus on what you can do.
Celebrate accomplishments - Reward yourself for accomplishments ie) first 5K run or logging in 100 miles. A small reward like a favorite treat can help keep you motivated :)
