I'm gonna try to 60 miles this month. Maybe I'll make it.
On a related issue, I'm (re)posting this for additional input. Dave and company, I apologize for co-opt the group for this, but I'm not getting much response elsewhere...
I posted this yesterday in the FitBit group, but no responses, so I'm gonna try again here.... (apologies for the wall of text)
I recently (early February) took a part-time retail sales job (in addition to my FT desk job). Prior to this, I would walk most evenings 2-3miles, logging an average of 13000 steps/day. I don't have FitBit synced with MFP and only manually log my exercise calorie burn (i.e. calories burned during an intentional walk, complete with sneakers).
Since I started my PT job, my evening walks have been curtailed, as I work 2-3 evenings a week (5:30pm - 9:30pm). However, even on the days I work during the evenings, I get 13000-15000 steps. Today I got to my PT jobs at about 7500 steps, when I got home I'm now at 14000 steps.
I want to log the calories burned since I am fairly active, walking the sales floor for 4 hours. Should I consider walking the sales floor for 4 hours equivalent to my walking workouts which burn about 400cals (3miles, 1hr @ 3mph)? I want to take advantage of the activity level of my PT job, but want to be realistic. I'm also a member of the MFP Move Your @$$ Challenge and didn't make my goal of 60 miles for February b/c I only log my "walking workouts" rather than total FitBit miles. Maybe log 2.5 "miles" on the evenings I work??
