Personally, I've been having the same trouble... I've been healthy for 1 month today, and was struggling to fit exercise with school.... I go to school 4 days/week... and work 1 day/week!!... so what I do I try to either go to the gym before my classes or simply leave til the weekend... and the rest of the time is study-time! :) Hopefully that would work!! :)
I think sometimes the only choice is to just do the things you have to do but in a way that they give you some benefit. Like running up the stair instead of taking the elevator, parking further (if not walking) at the grocery store, etc.
Still, if you can, try to squeeze a couple of classes of any exercise you like. Schedule them, try to find a buddy to go with you and make sure you commit!
I really enjoy doing Pilates for 10-30 minutes. It builds muscles and is also a great way to de-stress. I'm a double major in college and I fit it in, so I'm pretty sure you can too. :) I'm finding that if I don't make time for exercise, other aspects of my life, such as academics, go downhill. When I do exercise, it improves so many other aspects of my life, especially my mental attitude!
I found Pilates videos online at YouTube.com for free! Just do a search for "Pilates."
So the question is not whether we will be extremist but what kind of extremist will we be? Will we be extremists for hate or will we be extremists for love? Will we be extremists for the preservation of injustice--or will we be extremists for the cause of justice?...maybe the South, the nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists.

I am trying to figure a way to fit exercise into my busy day. I have work everyday, and then night classes three days a week. I haven't been able to squeeze in very much exercise time. How do you fit it in?
