I think you should push yourself to do as much exercise as you can envision yourself actually sustaining. Key for me is consistency, so I find that if I commit to a certain amount and just try to push myself five or ten minutes past that, the feeling it gives is just great... and on the days where I just can't, that's okay too. So my best advice to you is to think realistically about how much time you're willing to put in, make some small changes at first, and work your way up to a bigger goal. I think it's different for everyone when we take everything into account rather than a number goal.
