Default New to FitDay - How do you count "activity"?

Do I count all walking? If I indicated that I am seated all day - do I include daily walking (to the subway, etc.) or do you only enter purposeful exercise like yoga, running, etc.?

Thanks in advance!!

I'm new here, too. But I found this thread that might help you...

Good luck.

Hi PeachesHarlem and AnnMon (Ann - good link to that other thread!).

Yes, if you indicate you're seated all day, make a separate entry for walking (to the subway or wherever), doing dishes, light housework or whatever. Those kinds of activities burn more calories than sitting. Enter your sleep time as an activity - that burns a little less than sitting.
