Fitting in working, exercising and sleeping - if I eat after I can't sleep.

I've got a problem fitting in working, exercising and sleeping. Some activities are in the evening, and I eat after, then I can't sleep.

I eat the paleo diet and find that after a meat and fat meal I get an energy boost around 2-4 hours later, then can't sleep. Ideally I'd eat a meal about 3pm, but the problem is that I work, and some classes I attend are in the evening e.g. combat training...and it seems to make sense to eat after to replenish protein and rebuild.
I'm going to start lifting weights for strength and you pretty much have to eat after that, right? If I left it and ate in the morning, my body wouldn't be able to rebuild properly overnight.
I don't know what my work schedule will be, but I may have to fit weights in in the evening as well.
Any ideas for how I can fit all this in that work with a paleo diet
..i.e. not a gallon of milk a day etc.
