Dan, maybe I'm a bit too analytical but could you outline: your goals, equipment, time on weekends & time during the day?

For example, your training could look like:
Run and take stairs whenever convenient
GTG: Grippers beside your desk, pull-ups and pistols when you walk out the door, etc.

If you have 10-15 minute opportunities, go for something like max snatches/burpees/thrusters in that time frame.

On the weekends I would do heavy strength work followed by a chipper workout.

Lots of possibilities. You've definitely got the right attitude.

Search the board for the word cortisol. It was the subject of a fitness thread not long ago. The gist was higher intensity workouts that called upon the different metabolic pathways were also helpful in reducing cortisol levels. Look for workouts like today's Chelsea or a "chipper" (several different exercises done at a set amount of reps for time).
