Sunday -- start the week off strong, instead of 30 mins push for 45 to get that extra push or instead of 30 mins cut it to 15-20 mins of high intensity
Monday -- keep all of the workouts although add weights to build muscle faster
Tuesday -- make it 40 mins instead or keep it at 30 and go uphill
Wednesday -- resting is good, give your muscles time to recover 
Thursday -- 20 min jog is perfect for a warm up, push your limits and double each workout, 20 push-ups? no. 40.   10 squats? no. 20.   25 curl-ups? no. 50. 
Friday -- 30 min bike ride is good. Sprint as fast as you can to finish the week strong
Saturday -- one-hour walk is good though you should do this more frequently

To every exercise add weights.
