Default Religious people: what is your level of observance?

Quick and simple question for any person on here who considers themselves religious.

What is your level of observance? For the purposes of this thread, this includes the following:

- following halal/kosher/vegetarian diets, or any other special food requirements.
- attending services at a place of worship.
- practicing religion within the home (praying, scripture/study of holy books, grace/blessings at meals, bedtime prayers etc.)
- giving to religiously-based charities/causes (time, money, resources)
- keeping Shabbat (if Jewish)
- fasting on prescribed days (such as Ramadan, Yom Kippur or during Lent).
- following any rules on clothing, hair, bodily hygiene and cleaning.

The list is not exhaustive though.

So, post away! Poll coming...

My faith is better than I am. I pray and feel that I have a strong belief in God and all that, but I'm a lot less Godly than I'd like to be.

I observe religious people fairly often I guess. They're all over the place!

I have few but strong beliefs. Im not an overly crazed religious fanatic. Im pretty lax on this topic. It suits my life.

I'm a little observant, but am aiming to be much more observant. The last couple of years I have carried out Lent which is a way to fast during the Christian holiday's up to the rise of Jesus from the tomb (Easter Sunday). I will be doing it this year too.

Just move! Then you'll be cool to covet.

I forgot to add my own answer to my own damned thread.

I'm wanting to convert to Judaism, and am in the process of converting. I keep kosher as much as possible, try and attend a local Orthodox synagogue, keep the Sabbath as much as possible and I also try to pray with my siddur (prayer book).
