I think it's going to be difficult to estimate how many calories you'd burn doing that, since there is a lot of stopping, then starting again and it's not continuous. I'd just focus on your diet for now, let your leg heal, and then you can resume exercise (and start tracking it again) when you're ready.

Hope that helps,

I broke my leg a little over a week ago, and I've been having to walk on crutches since. It is rough doing most everything except sitting, and my left thigh was hurting the first few days because of holding my leg up all the time when I was walking.

I was wondering, should I count walking on crutches as exercise? I break a sweat just getting from the couch to the bathroom, and getting around on carpet is even harder. Should i count it, or ignore it?
