I am in the same boat as you, work FT and school 3/4. That on top of a 13 year old, 6 dogs, and a baby in the belly, my days are full. I have learned to keep checklists and live by them. I also sat down and evaluated my time for a few days, to see if I was truly utilizing my time well. Then I took my schedule and put exercise in it. I realized that if I don't take care of myself, then I would eventually not be able to maintain my pace with everything else.
Some steps for time management:
-To do lists
-On your day off, make a big pot of ... for the week. Grab some tupperware and freeze some, to bring out later on and heat up.
-Plan your meals ahead, and post on your fridge. This will keep you from grabbing the first thing you see (hopefully).
-While you are studying at home, sit on an exercise ball instead of your desk chair/couch/kitchen chair. This works the core and you don't even realize it (it's always the little things).
-While doing dishes/brushing teeth/other, do some leg lifts,calf raises, leg adductions/abductions, or other (these can be found in the exercise area).
-park further away at work or school (or anyplace you drive to)
-when you are at home studying, take breaks now and then and do something for five minutes. I have a pool and will walk around it or do lunges around it...just an example.
Just remember, every little thing helps. If I think of any more I'll post them...hope this gets you started!
