Oh this is perfect!!!

Ya see I was thinking the fairly active would be the bigger part and the lightly active would be the smaller part.

My job is similar to yours in a way. I do massage therapy. So I am always standing but also walking around the massage table when I am working on the body. but in between clients I am usually rushing around cleaning the room for next client.

thank you so much!!!

I work 8 hour shifts as a certified nurses aide. I think it is a pretty active job- as we do a lot of walking, lifting, pulling, etc....
I looked at 4 days on my fitbit page of days I was working and this is what I got:

Day 1: 2 hours & 14 minutes fairly active
4 hours & 33 minutes lightly active

Day 2: 2 hours and 43 minutes fairly active
5 hours and 28 minutes lightly active

Day 3: 1 hour and 50 minutes fairly active
5 hours and 14 minutes lightly active

Day 4: 3 hours and 4 minutes fairly active
5 hours and 25 minutes lightly active

Hope this helps. I often feel like I am fairly active more than 2 or 3 hours a day!! But I think it is lower than it seems because alot of the time we are standing still when we are doing patient care- even though we are still "busy". If that makes sense!
Good Luck!

Can you post what a high day and a low day is, or what the average is? You have a kind of job I described below?

I don't care if it's not exactly like what I do I am just trying to get a overall idea of what to shoot for with the number of minutes for my fairly active section.

The only number I am looking for is the fairly active # of minutes. If that makes sense.

mine varies so much from day to day so I take an average for my weekly basis to meet

Everybody tells me that they would love to knit, but they don't have time. I look at people's lives and I can see opportunity and time for knitting all over the place. The time spent riding the bus each day? That's a pair of socks over a month. Waiting in line? Mittens. Watching TV? Buckets of wasted time that could be an exquisite lace shawl. ~Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much

OK so I was just wondering if some one could post their activity level who workes a 7-8 hour day that is not a desk job but where you are standing most of the day and doing some light walking. Some thing that would be similar to working at a clinic, or working in a store like retail, where you standing and walking but it slower walking not walking your dog pace.

What is the fairly actives minutes you get for a day like that? I am only asking because I am not working right now and want to try to make my day more similar to as if I was working. Other wise being at home I can easily be at my computer for hours at a time on SP or just the regular internet reading stuff.

I know that what ever people put here, I may not still reach but I am just looking for an idea of what others are getting so i can try to get that, the kind of activity as if I was working.

thank you.
