I am one of two people up for a position at a daycare center/preschool (after being unemployed for nearly a year). One of the things the job will bring is a more active lifestyle.
I'm just not sure what activity level to put if I get this job. I had a job at a preschool in the past, and I was constantly moving. Jumping, running, lifting, bending, twisting. I easily exceeded my 10,000 step goal.
A lot of trackers put "teacher" under lightly active, so should I go with that, or should I go with a more active setting since there is a difference between a high school teacher who just stands at a blackboard and a preschool teacher who is actively moving?
And, suppose I pick active. That will give me up to 1,700+ calories per day to lose 2 pounds per week. That seems kinda high, and that's not including extra exercise. The idea that I can eat over 2,000 calories and lose weight is a little baffling.
And what about weekends when I'm not-so active? Should I change my goals for those days?
Or should I just stick with "lightly active" since it looks like my goals are the same for sedentary and lightly active?
