-The research shows that cardio blunts strength for about 24 hours. So do your cardio after training or on separate days, if possible. If not, then don't worry and just get the work in.
-Your schedule and life comes first. Fit it in where you can.
-Losing weight is mostly a matter of calories in vs calories out. Don't worry so much to begin with about all the little things like nutrient timing and anabolic windows. Just start with eating the number of calories you need to lose weight and hitting the macros you need to hold on or build muscle mass.
-Once again, don't major in the minors. Actually doing cardio is the most important thing. Find what you enjoy most since you'll probably stick to it. Find some thing friends or family are doing and do it with them. You are just getting back into things, chase progress not perfection.
-Once again, not that important to begin with. What is more important is that you are consistently weight training and doing cardio.
