Would you want to arrive at work all sweaty and hot after a workout?

If not, then is it REALLY a "workout"?

Are you keeping your HR up the whole time? Do you do it regularly? I likely wouldn't track it, it comes awfully close to double dipping. Your body will adapt and become used to it if you do it every day. You might eat higher on your calorie range those days if you feel the need, but I don't think I'd count the calories as exercise calories, personally.

I live about 15 - 20 minutes away from work and have to go up a steep hill on this walk. If I walk to work instead of catching the bus can I classify this as working out and track it?

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
