Welcome! Good for you to use your birthday as a motivating goal. You sound really busy. I know I have days that are very full and it is hard to get everything in. I've found that if I just take a ten minute walk right before bed then even if I didn't get to the gym, I feel like I've done something active. Ten minutes less sleep isn't going to make a big difference, but being consistent about moving can.
I am also figuring out how to make menus when I don't have time to search or record each ingredient. Right now I am just sticking to the same breakfast and lunch. I guess it's a little boring, but at least I don't have to take time to figure out if it is something I should be eating.
One more thing that helps me when I feel like I don't have time is a quote I read somewhere that says, (paraphrasing) "If you want to discover two more hours in your day, shoot your TV." If I am saying I don't have time to work out, but I have time to watch Revenge then I'm just lying to myself.
Anyway- good luck! Know there are lots of us trying to figure out the same things.
