In brief: Prioritize

You need to make a committant to exercise and pencil it into your schedule.
Decide which types of exercise you like to do so you have options based on the day, time available, weather, how you are feeling. Don't discount a 10 minute walk if that's all the time you have. Commit to 2 days/wk for the first 2 weeks then gradually add extra days. Start with 20-30 min increasing to 60 min 5 days/wk.

And try to make the exercise you pick fun! You're far more likely to consistently do it if you're enjoying it.
Dr. Scott Mitchell
EXCELLENT ADVICE! Finding an activity that you enjoy doing anyway but is also counting towards the regular amount of exercise that you are trying to do makes obtaining exercise consistent with a moderate or very active activity level much easier!

You need to rearrange your schedule to give your self time.
