@Sunshining: YES! I have way more energy to pack and get ready to move into our house after I’ve sweated it out at the gym. If I go straight home after working at a desk all day, all I want to do is lay there and zone out in front of the TV.

You just have to make time. Instead of sitting down and watching a TV show for an hour, work out. Instead of being on weddingbee for 20 minutes work out. I use to say I never had time, but then I looked at my nightly schedule.
Also, you can break up your workouts in shorter sessions through out the day.

I was literally just thinking about this yesterday!  The Mr. keeps working on our house all the time and with work, commuting, making dinner, cleaning up and working a second job I really can’t figure it out!  BUT I am forcing myself to do ONE workout a day… whether that means hitting the gym, going for a walk, doing a workout OnDemand or running during my lunch break.  I also started on LoseIt.com, which really helps me keep track of what I’m eating.

I think that it’s a mindset b/c if you know you mentally need that 1 hour of “you” time – you will benefit both mentally AND physically.

I was in school FT and working FT & PT, and working out 6 days a week while wedding planning.  It was REALLY overwhelming.  I already got every other Monday off, so I just took the other one off for a few months to make things more manageable (not sure if you have the flexibility to work PT for a few weeks).  I was able to sue vacation time so it wasn’t a big deal.

Other than that… I found work out things that were super flexibiliy (i.e. videos, and a stationary bike at home), this allowed me to work out on my time, and I saved the time to travel to and from the gym.  Also, you don’t HAVE to workotu to lose weight it just helps.  Maybe just doing it based mainly on diet will help, and commit yourself to working out on the days you are off, and then a few days during the week (maybe do it in the morning).  Working out is one of those things you need to make time for.  Maybe doing it before work adn foregoing some hours a sleep for a few weeks will have to be necessary.  Let me know how it works out.
