Keeping up gains with minimal training time

Alright /fit, help me out here:
My wife's pregnant. All good, we're happy, etc.
Now the thing is, we made a deal, after she's giving birth, she gets six months in which her workout regime takes precedence over mine. She is a former ballet dancer and wants to get back in shape as soon as possible, and I'm not gonna protest this one as you can imagine. This will basically mean that I'll have just one or two times a week to keep in shape. My current schedule is Phraks Greyskull LP with one day of jogging and one day of swimming on the rest days. But obviously, I can't keep this up with training once or twice a week.
I'm looking for a schedule to keep up my gains as best as possible, I'll loose some of course, and came up with the following:
1. Strength: Big three workout (Squat, deadlift and bench, all 3x5)
2. Endurance/body weight: chin-ups, dips, sit-ups, push-ups (all 3xfailure), then a 20-30 minute jog.
I would alternate these 2 workouts with roughly 3 days of rest in between.
Your thoughts? What should I change?
Thanks in advance guys!
