It's not cardio, but you should probably eat at the top of your calorie range to compensate.

Whilst it's true that you won't be in the aerobic zone, be aware that you'll still be burning more calories than you would say if you were sitting down for an office job all day.
It's definately only a bonus. Sadly you can't really log it as "Exercise"... But at the same time you might find that the extra movement and standing up all the time might give you a little nudge ^.^

*sigh* I was afraid of that. It's going to look like I've sat on my tush all day, though, if I can't log anything at all, and I WILL be moving constantly. *sigh*

I doubt your heart rate will be up in the aerobic zone, so you shouldn't be logging it as cardio. Physical jobs are a bonus, not a substitute for scheduled intentional exercise.

I am starting a 2nd job tomorrow and for two weeks, I'll pretty much be working from 7:30 a.m. until 10:30 at night. 6:00 to 10:00 will be a cashier in Lowe's Home Improvement store.

I'm 170, 5'8"

I really want to track some of my fitness, so I'm hoping someone can give me a good idea. Thanks!!!
