    I make it a goal to do it every day. But in reality it works out to be maybe 4-5 times a week because of schedule. I've changed my approach from all weights to cardio + weights, because I got a bike and I've been enjoying riding it around. I try to lift every day, which ends up being 4-5 times a week. And I also end up riding my bike for between 30 - 90 minutes at least 3-4 times a week. I cut my lifting routine down to about 30 minutes a day.

    As those who have id'd me in conference can attest, mine is the first answer. Every night when I go to bed I say to myself I will get up and get started, and every morning I tell myself to STFU. I am not sure how to get back any motivation at this point in fatdom.

    My goal is four days cardio, and two days weights, but I frequently miss one day a week for a variety of excuses, most of them lame.

    I go on kicks where I will exercise regularly (4-5 times per week) and I keep that up for several weeks. And then I will fall back into laziness and not exercise for months. Then I will get serious about fitness again and start exercising regularly, then I fall off the wagon again and become a couch potato.

    So like the Dos Equis guy when it comes to exercise: "I don't always exercise, but when I do, I exercise almost daily. Stay fit my friends."

    Every other day -- some of those days weights, some of them cardio.

    I go every day of the week except the Sab. Lift every day and usually some sort of cardio.

    I work long hours on M,W,F, so I am lucky if I am able to do anything on those days. I try to make up for it on T,TH usually doing an hour or more of cardio as well as at least an hour of weights. Saturday in the summer is a 2-3 hour bike ride, followed by whatever weights I can fit it. Winter its an hour run followed by weights.

    I try and do something everyday. I row and do pushups at home everyday and during the summer I bike or golf, always walk and always carry my bag, for my cardio. You may not think golf is a good workout but nine holes gets me tired and I'm really dragging after 18. Winters are brutal around here so i spend a lot of time in the gym doing stairs, push ups and kettlebells. I love to skate ski so I do that when ever conditions permit.

    Good week = 2 days pickup/rec league soccer, 3 days running, 3 days weights/HIIT.
    Bad week = 1 day rec league soccer

    Usually I'm somewhere u between. I am trending up lately.

    I like to do at least one activity per day, sometimes two, and in rare circumstances three.

    I try to bike two to three days, even if only for an hour, run two to four days (nothing special 4-8 miles), lift once or twice, swim one to two and martial arts once. Additionally, we hike for thirty to ninety minutes when time allows. My wife tries to slide in some yoga, which I attend occasionally. It is rare when I miss a day, but sometimes travel makes it impossible to do anything more than a push up, sit up routine. I feel ill on those days. As with RC, weather can be brutal, so if there is too much snow, we now cross country ski, but only for an hour. All that sounds like a lot but it only ranges from 90 minutes to two hours on most days.
