Let me start by saying please talk to your doctor before starting any exercise routine.
I need a schedule in my life to do things. I get too easily distracted and end up doing maybe half of the things I want to do in any given week. Unless it's written down (specially if it's something I don't really want to do) It gets missed.
Today, Everyday Health sent out an 8 week slim down program to make it easy. Each week focuses on one thing and it mixes cardio and toning. Unfortunately the TV exercise they offer are not working at this time, but I hope they get them running. But even if you do the other days in each week, it will be a great way to get started. http://www.everydayhealth.com/8-week-slim-dow...

It takes about 3 weeks to develop a habit. This is two months, so there is plenty of time to make it a good lifestyle change habit.
