Default Work, sleep... suggestions with training?

The last time I was in an excellent shape (and it was my most excellent shape) - lean, felt good, 6-pack outline - was when I was doing weights and a short metcon 1.5 hours in the morning and sometimes a destress walk or slow row for 1 hour in the evening. I was eating lots of meat, with veggies or nuts thrown in once in a while.

Work hours are officially 8.30am to 6pm, but I arrive usually between 8.30pm and 9pm and leave between 7pm and 9pm. Schedule is something like this:

7am Wake up, cup of coffee
7.30-8am Walk, row, 5-10 minutes HIIT
8am-8.10am Some weight exercises
8.10am Shower, prepare for work
8.30am Leave for work
Between 8.50am and 9am Arrive at work
.
.
12.30-1.30pm Official lunch hour but I usually just have some green tea, hot water, or once in a while coffee while working. No appetite from just sitting down.
.
.
Between 7.30pm... 9pm Leave work, arrive home, eat dinner, shower
10.30pm Try to sleep

I've been getting fatter and feeling quite stressed out every night. I think I function best with 8-10 hours of sleep a night, and it takes me about 1/2 hour to fall asleep. I would really like to get back into exercising for about 1.5 hours every morning and doing a destress every evening. But I have no idea how to fit it in and whether it would help reduce cortisol or just make things worse.
