A look inside the daily life of US Vice President Mike Pence, who loves popcorn, bikes miles at a time, and has a cat called Pickle

US Vice President Mike Pence is one of President Donald Trump's staunchest defenders.

However, with calls for the president's impeachment at an all-time high, it's not completely outside the realm of possibility that Pence could ultimately take the top job in the White House.

So what does the vice president's usual routine look like, when he's not traveling? Because of the changing nature of the role, it's hard to lock down a concrete schedule. However, Pence's time as a member of Congress and governor of Indiana gives us some idea of what he's up to all day.

Here's some insight into some of Pence's daily habits.

The Washington Post reports that Pence's White House office is next to the office of national security advisor H.R. McMaster. It's also quite far away from the Oval Office on the first floor.

In his old office, Pence also kept a "table of heroes," featuring photos of conservative politicians like Jack Kemp, Dan Quayle, and Ronald Reagan. "It reminds me who I am," he told Roll Call.

... and a shelf stocked with books that Pence described "of great consequence to me personally." These included Dinesh D'Souza's biography of Reagan, "Spiritual Leadership" by J. Oswald Sanders, Tom Clancy's "The Hunt for the Red October," "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis, and "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey, among others.

In 2009, Pence told The Hill that snacking on Indiana popcorn at 5 p.m. — sometimes with now-Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel — was his guilty pleasure. "If I have not had dinner or do not have plans for dinner, I usually get a bag and almost always regret it eventually," he said.

During his tenure in Congress, Pence told The Hill that he enjoyed grabbing a late dinner with his family. He added that "plopping down on the couch and catching up with mom and the kids" helped him unwind.

Now that he is the vice president, Pence's dining schedule is far more up in the air. Sometimes, he and his wife Karen dine with the Trumps.

When it comes to dining, Pence does have certain rules. The vice president tends to avoid alcohol, according to a summary of his health history released during the campaign.

The report also revealed that Pence has never smoked cigarettes, although he did spark a controversy in 2000 by suggesting that "smoking doesn't kill."

The vice president also does not attend events that serve alcohol without his wife.

In 2002, he also claimed that he never eats alone with a woman, other than Karen. Those comments have been scrutinized recently, with commentators calling the choice sexist.

While the Washington Post reported that she has no desire to "influence policy," Karen is one of Pence closest advisers, according to Rolling Stone. He's referred to her as the family's "prayer warrior" in the past and calls her "mother" as a nickname.

On Sundays, the Pences have been spotted attending service at Sanibel Community Church in Florida and the Anglican Falls Church in Virginia.

As his schedule allows, Pence also participates in a weekly West Wing Bible study, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo, according to the Washington Examiner.

When he's not working, Pence is an avid cyclist. After losing a Congressional race, he once biked 250 miles around his district, according to the Washington Post.

Pence has said that he also enjoys horseback riding. "The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man," he told The Hill.

While there has been speculation that Pence is establishing a sort of "shadow presidency" of his own, the vice president has slammed any indication that he's planning to take over from Trump. Pence has called the president "a man with broad shoulders and a big heart."
