You both are already back on track. You have taken the first steps by admitting things are tough right now. We all get to that point - life can get into the way of our goals.
One possibility is to truly commit to a 5K by finding a local race and sign up. Don't wait until you are "well on your way." Sign up for it now! Pay the money! If it's hard to come up with the money, it may even mean more and push you harder. Just check with the race to make sure the course time limit will suit your ability. I usually look at the results from previous years. Then if you can get someone to join you, do it. Finally, know that you will finish and if you approach it with the right mind set, you will have fun.
Go for it!

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
- Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.
