Don't forget that the idea of exercise is NOT an intense hour-long crazed workout! You can get in a lot of exercise in ten-minute units throughout the day! If you look at the Boot Camp video, each day has a brief version of the exercises you can break out and use any time you want. I really don't suggest you do any butt-kicking. Could you sustain it for the rest of your life? If not, then take the gentler Spark approach and break it down into small, managable units. Taking care of yourself with epilepsy is very, very important! Be sure to manage your nutrition carefully as well. Good luck!

Morning workouts might be best for you, if you are able to. I have always hated mornings (still do) but I know that if I need to workout after work I just won't do it! Now I go to the gym almost every morning before work.

Regular exercise should help you sleep better at night too. I know it says everywhere that you will also get an energy boost from regular exercise. I tend to feel different on different days, but most of the time my energy stays consistantly higher than it used to (when I always felt like I was going to fall asleep on my keyboard). Are you able to fit morning workouts into your schedule?

I am always tired. Usually because of my epilepsy. Because of it I get tired quickly through out the day and because of it, I dont sleep well at night.

Any tips on how to kick my butt to actually go exercise even though Im already super tired at the end of work?
