If you work in construction, fitness probably isn't much of a problem for you (my own mom is a contractor/handywoman, and she is RIPPED at 48 years old, five foot nothing, with all the hauling and carrying and heavy tools), so I would definitely focus on trying to cut out junk from your diet. Carry some snacks with you for breaktime from home; fruit, healthy sandwiches, nuts, granola bars, your own healthy drinks, etc., none of what I listed take much if any time to put together but are definitely better than doughnuts. I also pack lunches, if possible, the night before, usually while already in the kitchen making dinner, so I'm not rushing in the morning to make it up and can just grab it and go. Same with lunches, if you have access to a microwave you can cook up a large meal at home on an off-day (and many things aren't hard or time-consuming at all; slow-cooked crock pot dishes, chili, stew, etc.) that will give you several days of lunches or dinners as leftovers that are better than going out for fast food (and saves you money!).
