It is hard to recommend specific exercises without knowing what you are already doing.

You need a combination of strength training, cardio, and endurance exercises. This is what I do.

Run every morning unless it is a weekend and I have a physical activity planned for the day. Just a short, 3 mile run most days, a longer 5+ mile run twice a week.
In addition to running, you want to do at least 30 minutes of weight/strength training at least twice a week. You can find a ton of easy hand weight routines online, just do a google search, or work with your trainer if you have one.
Last, you want to do a cardio class for at least an hour a day 3 to 4 days a week. I like Zumba & spinning.
Sometimes I do crossfit as well, and that can replace some of my weight training because it helps build muscle too.
I also do Yoga when I'm feeling too tense or stressed, or if my muscles are sore. That way I can let my muscles heal without skipping a workout.

Don't do more than your run and one 1 hour class or 1 hour workout each day, just change up the classes and other workouts often so that you don't "plateau".
