I'm trying to figure out what to set my activity level to.
I work 40 hours/week at an assembly plant. I do stock and light assembly. Due to stocking, I clock in at least 10 000 steps at work, it also involves lifting heavy (30 lbs) crates with parts. My co worker calculated I lifted at least 800 crates today. When I'm not stocking, I'm standing doing light assembly or walking to gather things; paperwork, light parts, etc.
I'm also a mom and when I get home, I workout and then spend the next 3-4 hours cleaning, making lunches, dinner, taking care of my children, etc. I get home at 3pm and usually don't sit down much until around 7-8pm. On Saturday, Sunday I do a lot more resting but I'm still pretty busy doing chores/errands and taking care of my kids.
I'm 31 and 5'2, 120 lbs. Approximately how many calories would I burn through my activity (not including exercise)?
Oops, sorry. I forgot that Sparkpeople has the options; sedentary, lightly active and active. I think for sedentary it says I burn 1590 cals/day, lightly active is 1830 cals and I'm not exactly sure but I think active adds another 150 cals, which would be around 1980 cals?

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
