Setting aside an hour everyday for cardio exercise, as is suggested by the USDA, can seem daunting at best. Instead of focusing on getting an hour of cardio, try to fit in exercise a little at a time. For example, you may consider taking up jump roping. Jump ropes are cheap, light weight, extremely portable and skipping can get your heart rate up in a hurry. It is a great way to get some high intensity work when you only have a few minutes to spare and you can jump rope from almost anywhere. Furthermore, jumping rope is a great weight-bearing exercise, which studies show can help prevent some of the degenerative diseases that plague women later in life like arthritis and osteoporosis.
