Personally, I have struggled with the concept of "cutting" and staying consistent for a period of time. I'm 5'11 and about 191, roughly 20 ish % body fat. I have a solid muscular foundation and know I would look great with a 10-15 pound cut. Recently took some medical board exams and lost my mojo (mind gets locked into study mode). I was really consistent with the gym prior for several months, better than ever actually, but I feel like my diet is always the same.

I find myself snacking/eating shit food on weekends (only at nights) especially mixed with alcohol. I love relaxing and taking a weekend night to enjoy myself, but I fear that eating "junk" food has become an activity to me mentally. If I want to get lean, what are some ways I can approach this behavior? I don't want to avoid alcohol and junk food entirely, but I feel like my current habits are always limiting my progress. I know having a leaner body would make me feel happy, but I debate whether that happiness is surface level based on societal standards.

My son is disabled. It is unlikely he will be able to walk and will probably be non-verbal as he gets older. I'm looking to prepare for my son growing heavier and in particular, preparing for lifting him in/out of bed/wheelchairs and probably stairs. I work a busy desk job and still being a dad (2 kids, one disabled) I don't have lots of time for the gym.

I've looked online but I can't see much info around lifting plans for carers. I was hoping that some combination of fireman/army/drunk friend workout tips might help me plan a routine.

One thing to note, I'm looking to keep injury to a minimum. Tweaking my back for a month will be more than a minor inconvenience putting on socks.

Some background about my fitness. About 10 years ago I read starting strength and have reasonable form for my compound lifts. I've not been a gym regular for a few years because of being a dad and work. My max lifts were no record breakers because I was very active playing sports year round.

Also, I'm likely to play some tennis and cycle. I have a gym membership through my sports club (it's a good gym with squat rack etc) and have kettle bells at home and a yoga mat.

Any help would be appreciated! Apologies if this has been asked before, I'm a lurker and not posted to r/fitness before.
