I spend more time working out--each day from 60 min to 120 min. I cook on either Sat. or Sun. for the upcoming week--sometimes up to 4 hrs.

I spend more time cooking, but it's usually only dinner that takes up the bulk of the time. Breakfast & lunch are usually things that are quick to put together (e.g. oatmeal, sandwich, smoothies).

I work out 2 hours five times a week and thirty minutes the other two days. I cook about an hour everyday 5 times a week so I spend more time on working out :)

I spend more time working out as I have my clean eating down to a science of quick easy healthy meals. I workout 6 days a week at an hour each time.

I definitely spend more time cooking because I do it 3 times every day. I do try to add elements of working out while cooking, like doing squats while at the stove, walking laps around the house while waiting for water to boil, doing a few arm curls with the heavy cans before opening them. It doesn't add much time to cooking, and it burns a few extra calories.

I spend more time cooking although I've got cooking time down to about an hour a day. That doesn't count clean-up time.

What do you spend more time on?

On average I spend 2.5 hours cooking and 30 minutes working out each day.
