Who logs their commute?

For those who routinely walk, run, or cycle to work and for errands, do you log your daily commute in your diary?

    No. I count it toward my lifestyle which is lightly active.

    I have a Fitbit, so my MFP goal automatically adjusts based on how much movement I do and I don't have to log anything separately.

    When I commuted by bike, of course I tracked those rides. I'd go easy in the morning since I didn't want to show up at a professional office covered in sweat, then the ride home was a workout. Some days I'd go out of my way for an errand, to see a friend, or to enjoy the weather and scenery, other days I'd race directly home. Even if I always followed the same route, traffic and wind (etc) affected how much work I was doing.

    Sadly my company moved too far away for this to be feasible anymore. :disappointed:

    Yes. My commute is long enough to matter. IMO. 38 miles yesterday round trip.

    When I cycle it's 10 miles, cross country each way. So yes.

    For other stuff, I have a VivoSmart so that accounts for background level activity

    I set MFP to sedentary and log everything.

    So far, walked 563 miles this year.

    I'm set at sedentary and have my fitit synced with mfp, which does all the maths for me.

    I only walk to work, so it's included in my calories already - lightly active. I only log purposeful exercise, daily activities like commuting to work, working, housework etc aren't considered exercise for me.

    This. I use my fitbit. My commute is a 30 minute walk, or 12 minute bike ride. If I walk it, my fitbit tracks it. If I ride it, it's just "lifestyle".

    My phone automatically adds the steps in but if yours doesn't then yes I would add it

    If I regularly commuted by foot or bike or something I would include it in my activity level.
