You could do body weight exercises for strength training at home. Like pull ups, pushup variatations, and dumb bell exercises from home. could look at you tube for some good examples. Sparkpeople also has basic weight routines you could start at at home. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fit ... erator.asp
another thought is what i would do go when it's not busy,. my old gym was open 24 hours a 4am workouts i could manage a lot of times.
one other option is if they sell p90x or other strength training workouts from home you could buy the dvds and as long as you have the needed equipment at home workout at home. For p90x all you need is weights or resistsance band, pullup bar or resistance band, and that's pretty much it.
Congrats on your success so far! Hopefully those suggestions can help some.

I noticed that you'd put a few snacks in between the main meals?
Normally I eat 3 meals a day. Looking something like this:
Breakfast - 2 Wheetabix/small bowl of bran flakes with just enough semi-skimmed milk.
(Have more protein in here, like Chicken, Turkey, Eggs, Ham etc)
Lunch - chicken breast sandwich with tomatoes/cucumber and lettuce. Or, 2 slices of whole grain toast with very thinly spread butter.
(Don't sub the Sandwich for the Toast, though you could use the Toast instead of Bread and keep the chicken filling, so sometimes have a Chicken Sandwich, sometimes a Chicken Toastie)
Dinner - Usually a portion of meat either chicken or beef, with mashed/jacket potato, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and gravy, with very little salt.
(I would reccomend certainly between meals 1-2 and meals 2-3 you add an extra meal around mid morning and mid afternoon, so things like a decent sized portion of Peanuts, Low Fat Cheese, Salads, Microwave Beans, Rice or Soup Dishes, or a portion of Flesh with something like an Apple or a Banana, or a large portion of Nut Yoghurt, possibly with Fruit, or some Flesh and Nuts together, as examples.
There alterations to your plan would make you plan work as an alternative to my plan, so now you have my plan with two options per meal or your amended one, so there's plenty of choice now for you, without over complicating things .)
