I have a pedometer and on a semi busy day I walk about 5 miles and over 10,000 steps. I also burn over 2,000 calories in a day just from work alone. I work in a Deli so you can imagine the movement I go through hours at a time. :)
So maybe when you're standing...walk in place? Just to get some movement.

We are our own worst critics, our biggest enemies. Let's show ourselves that we can do anything, even when we are at our lowest point.

So I work at a gas station. Simple right? You'd think....I'm constantly moving. Cleaning. Sweeping. Moping. Stocked. Heavy lifting. And in a 8 hr shift....I stand maybe 2 or 3 hrs collectively. So I know I have to burn some Linda calories....any suggestions? I tried logging 70 min. Of heavy house cleaning....and it was 340 Cal. I feel like I don't actually burn that. I'm buying a pedometer today so should I just log my steps?
