Locked OUT! Dead Remote Key (first post!)

I have read a bunch of forums on this issue but I need to make sure. My battery in my remote key died a couple months back. I have been opening my car manually. This weekend I went to go unlock my car but nothing happened and it wouldnt unlock it. So I am locked out of my car with keys in hand...amazing!

I saw a video on how to replace my battery on youtube:

I also read how to replace my lock cylinder:

However, I am not sure which I need to do. The video states I have to reprogram my key which is slightly impossible due to the lack of access to my ignition.

I am curious about which is the best and most efficient, least amount of dirt and car knowledge method for a woman like myself to solve this problem.

Any suggestions will be amazing!
