It sounds like your days are pretty full-on. Congratulations on your new job :-)
A lot of people think that they have to go to a gym for exercise and do an hour's work-out at a time. For a lot of people this is totally unrealistic for a variety of reasons, and for you the time factor seems to be the reason. Fortunately there are lots of ways to get the exercise in without over-extending yourself.
1. Park the car or get off the bus a little bit further away than you would normally. IF you are close enough, walk to work when possible, or buy a bicycle.
2. Go for a brisk walk at lunch time.
3. Have more toilet and water cooler stops than you would normally need.
4. Do some 5 minute roll-downs and stretches at work or at home.
5. Put your laundry and groceries away one at a time. This is my main source of exercise, and it really can give you a walking work-out.
6. Dance while you vacuum.
7. How old are your children? Are they able to help to share the work-load at home - even a 5yr old can make their bed and set the table. That can give you a bit more down-time for relaxation which is also vitally important.
I hope that these will give you some more ideas for how you can tweak things to work for you.
