All you can do, is do the best you can with the time you have.

If your store carries it, you can get bottled bacteria, labeled usually "SafeStart" or "QuickStart" that will help get your cycle jump started when you have a filter. It still takes a while, but nothing like the roughly 6 weeks a cycle usually takes.
