Hi Ryan, there's that famous little saying around that says: "Just do it!" But I wanted to add a slightly different perspective. So, let's say you find the motivation to go out and train for this tournament - so you're motivated for as long as the tournament is there to be motivated for. But won't you then find that the morgage, kids etc.... again get in your way and you then fall back into doing nothing again. Now if your aim is just to enter this tournament and you're really not interested in doing something consistent then, it's a simple matter of just doing it.
But personally I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better for you (coz you'll build up muscle which when you do nothing converts to fat and doing this repeatedly is bad for your health - you can read more about this at http://www.ditch-diets-live-light.com/regaining-weight.html) if you tried something different.
Life is ALWAYS going to be there. So why not try incorporating cardio INTO your every day life instead of trying to find time to do cardio. There are some more ideas about this at http://www.ditch-diets-live-light.com/exercise-fun/html . You mentioned you have children - they'd love it if when you got home, you included them in your workout. Teach them BJJ martial arts - that way you'll be having a bonding experience with them, you'll be getting fitter and everyone will win.
