I was doing something similar to this awhile back and really shed some lbs. Really need to get back into it.
I had a few different floor "exercises" I was doing but just something like this.

Go though this about 3 or 4 times in the evening. As you progress you can add more reps/time. As I got stronger and faster, I'd finish this and go straight into a jog anything from a 1/2 mile to a whole mile.

100 Jumping Jacks or Jump Rope for time
30-40 Pushups
30-40 Situps
1min Plank

There's a ton of simple little exercises or variations of common ones, you can make whatever routine you want to target whatever, and if you're eating healthy, you'll notice results.

Run?

To get into this lifestyle, you MUST find something you like doing otherwise you won't stick with it. I would quit being healthy if I had to work out like NB said.....I can't get motivated like that. I need the fresh air, little sunshine, and some good tunes and I'm lacing up my sneakers for a run. I enjoy it....so I do it just about everyday.

Experiment to find what you enjoy. So many physical activities so little time! smile

I did just get a pair of like brand new, second hand Brooks running shoes....I'm flat footed, slew-footed, and pot gutted....but these shoes have more support than any shoe I've ever put on.

For a quick, hard, relatively full-body workout, do squat thrusts. If you want to add the standing jump into it, then call it a burpee, but both work.

The 1st video explains a lot, but the squat thrust is at around 1:25.

The only complete, full body workout that exercises everything is "swimming," and that's incorporating many different kinds of strokes. If you have a pool, just go do it.

Regarding squat thrusts or burpees, everyone's regiment will be different, but for starters, try 3 x 10 twice a day, the build up from there. Go 3 days like that, then go 4 x 15 and so on. You'll find your peak over time.

Addendum: My current fave exercise due is Eero with Vahva Fitness. I think he's Norwegian, and he's pretty impressive. The video posted is extreme "animal." It's advanced, but check out other stuff.

Sounds like you are ready to start jogging! Start slow, and build up. Check out the Couch to 5K App, it gives you a schedule for each day to build you up without injury.

Regarding "motivation."

All a person truly needs to do to either "get motivation" or "accept what he/she already is."

Before you go to bed, truly look at your body, your whole body, in the mirror, and also "feel" what your joints and muscles tell you.

If your body "hurts" because of inactivity, it should motivate you.

If you "look" at yourself in the mirror, and you do not like what you are seeing, that should be a "mountain of motivation" right there.

...do it tonight! Look at yourselves! Are you happy?
