this is food for thought; thank you everyone. emoticon

I plan to continue as I am doing for the time being and when my weight loss slows down then I'll omit casual steps altogether.

Track it if you want or don't if you don't want to. Personally, I track all my steps. I use a BodyMedia but I do not use it's activity calculation; I delete it if it feeds. I strictly count my intentional exercise.

If you don't want to track casual steps then omit them out of your total exercise regimen. I used to omit them but I'm pretty active despite having a desk job career that I just include it all for my FitBit steps~

I agree w/ not including the steps in my total unless I m actually breakung a sweat.

You don't have to track steps. I don't. I would only track it if you average 10 000+ per day and your activity level is set to sedentary. Otherwise your calorie range is possibly too high because Spark already accounts for light activity. I don't count steps I take during the day, only when I go for an actual walk/hike for 30 mins+.

now that I do in excess of 3000 casual steps on my rest days, surely it is time to omit casual steps from my daily pedometer total? On joining SP I was advised to include ALL steps, not merely workouts.

I'd like to be able to track only those vigorous steps that are part of my workout. I don't want to continue to earn burned calories for casual steps, when I haven't even broken sweat clocking them up.

Please kindly advise.
