I'm probably most in line with Templar's way of thinking here. You know what your priorities are, and if you let anybody here convince you otherwise that's just wrong. Lots of us have made sacrifices. IMHO, it sounds like you understand the proper order of things.

Deal is, there's no such thing as a 2 day a week program for your situation or anybody elses. Just do what you can do and accept such is life. For me personally, with your schedule, I'd consider nothing more than maybe running a few miles on the weekend and maybe (MAYBE) some light weights for 30 minutes or so and be happy with it. The main thing you're shooting for is for the body to just not go to hell in a wastebasket before time allows for you to get back into a more normal routine w/o sacrificing the things that are more important in the long run than muscle.

Just my .02,

Working out for gains or losses is really the sacrifice you're making. School/work take priority in this case. You'll just have to deal with the fact that you will have to work out only a little bit during the next year or so. Focus on your diet as much as possible, since that is something you can definitely control with less time/effort. It will help reduce the negative effects from not working out as much.
