Not as much as I should.
High school was no problem. I played football in the fall and track and field in the winter and spring.
Even though I hovered around 185 - 190 lbs in HS, I'm 6'-4", so I'm more big boned than round.
College was a complete 180. Even though I partyed, it wasn't an issue, but not eating much was. I actually lost weight.
Now I have the "sit on my ass in front of the computer all day" job and my weight is now up to about 230. I'm still not round, but I do have a beer gut.
I do play softball during the summer and the occasional volleyball game. I like to ski, but haven't been in awhile so winters are pretty dead exercise wise, although the occasional game of hockey does take place.
My wife will most likely start to walk after work and I will probably join her. It's easy and actually very good for you. And the weather is starting to turn. Its almost 70 degrees in Boston today and absolutely gorgeous.
Eating wise, I'm not a huge junk food addict. My only really bad vices are mint chocalate chip ice cream and chocalate covered pretzels. Fast food is seldom eaten. I actually do most of the cooking and try to keep it healthly without sacrificing flavor. Almost always vegetables are made, I bake my french fries instead of frying and red meat is kept to a minimum (about once a week). The other times are chicken and pork, which is actually not as bad for you as some people make it out to be.
