Good ideas to start working out?

Is there any music that inspire you to workout? I have been so lethargic by the time I'm out of work that I don't want to go to the gym anymore. Last summer I was a size 26/27, now I'm a 28/29 and most of my jeans don't fit. I gained 10 or 13lbs.
I'm not sure if it's the constant hunger I get from being on bc (implanon) or just me. I just need something to give me energy and keep me going. Any suggestions? Or what is a good starter workout?

There's already a thread for music, it really depends on the person; and for me, the type of physical activity I'm doing.

Here are a few of my suggestions on getting motivated:

1.Join a class- Being with a group of people who have the same intentions as you helps create a fun and positive atmosphere.
2.Set goals-Treating yourself with rewards for meeting your realistic short and long term goals can help you stay motivated and focused.
3.Get a buddy-Friends can help you stay on track, push you, and keep you company.
Aaron Douglas Trimble once said “Nothing’s better than the wind to your back, the sun in front of you, and your friends beside you.”
4.Hire a personal trainer-Personal trainers are here to create fun, flexible, and safe routines to help you achieve the results you want.

All of the above is good advice, I'd like to add the following:

-Keep a workout journal. Record what you do each day.
-Find a workout plan and stick to it. There's plenty of resources for this: lots of stuff online, and/or a personal trainer could help you set up a routine.

Music? I'm picky about what I work out to. Personal taste is going to make a BIG difference.

For lifting, I like stuff that's fucking brutal that varies it's intensity a bit. My main go-to album for lifting recently has been Scar Symmetry - Holographic Universe.

For cardio, research has suggested that music that evolves in intensity (starts out soft and gets more complex and driving as it progresses) helps a person get the most out of their session. For me, that means something like the crystal method or Isis.

"I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself."
Shameless self-serving addendum: Check out my MUSIC!
