Fishing: Sitting Yesterday I worked on tile for about 3 hours! I recorded it as Fishing: Sitting; for 2 hours; I didn't really fish for 2 hours! I didn't fish at all! I cut 18- 13 x 13 tiles down to 12 x 12 tiles with a wet saw. Then I laid the said tiles. Not all 18 though, only 9. I chose fishing because it seemed closer to what the actual calories might have been. Blessings, wildflowerr

Thats right knitting and crocheting does burn calories and it save me from eating because my hands are too busy, so I chew gum instead. Also tapping your feet while reading or doing computer work is a calory burning trick.

Do you have a pedometer? Many of them record how many miles you've walked, in addition to a number of steps. You could see how far you've traveled in a typical shopping trip, and how much time you spent doing it, and just divide the time by the number of miles (and you can just type the calculation into a google window, so you don't even need a calculator!). I find that if I'm walking at a constant pace, but not trying to walk as aerobically as possible, my pace is typically between 24 and 30 min/mile. (of course, I'm pretty short, so that might have something to do with it--my steps aren't nearly as long!)
Nice job fitting calorie burning into all parts of your life!
I typically walk a 17 minute mile and that's too fast in a store. I think walking in a store is about a 21 minute mile if you don't stop and stay at a pretty good clip.
Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.
There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."
I just walked around the grocery store for 40 minutes. I want to say I excersized. How would I know how many calories I burned? How can I post that on my Fitness page? I tried "Walk 13 min/mile" but I don't really know what that means.
