Hi, I've never worked a shift like that, but I've read that exercising too close to one's bedtime can actually inhibit your sleeping pattern. I found that out the hard way while on vacation, when I had no choice but to wait until the end of a travel day to get a brisk walk in. I've also read that we can break up our daily fitness into manageable chunks, in your case, maybe 20 minutes after you rise and then spread out the rest of the 20-25 minutes throughout the rest of your day. That doesn't work for me, but it might be an option for you.
Find a good fit, it might take time to figure out what's best for you. The important thing is to keep trying to live a healthy lifestyle and not give up.
It takes a long time to grow young. Pablo Picasso
