Hey guys,
I'm lost on this whole exercise diary. I have no idea what I clicked on earlier, but I haven't done any exercise today. I've been at work all day! Can someone explain the diary to me?

Resting and Sleeping count as exercise... so you may not have done any ACTUAL exercise, but daily activities still burn calories too. Maybe just change the amount of sleep you've had today to match the actual amount of sleep you've had and then it'll be more accurate.

The exercise diary is used to input all activities you do in a day - this includes *real* exercise and whatever your normal activities in a day would include (driving, walking, sitting, whatever!). The amount you burn in a day is weighed against the amount of calories you consume (in the food diary) and then you get a net gain/loss of calories per day.

And remember, being at work all day burns calories too! There is an option for desk work, if I remember correctly.

I work as a bartender at a theatre, so the days I work, I include the hours I spend standing and walking from the store room to floor my bar is on. I also include the time I spend sitting. (Sounds weird, I know...but it makes you feel good at the end of the day, knowing that your body is always in motion, ever though it doesn't seem that way!)

haha, I do the same thing - work in an office and count my 8 or so hours of sitting at my desk in my exercise journal - work once a week at a bar too, so I too count the amount of time that I spend standing and walking around towards it as well.
You are right, it does make you feel good at the end of the day!

So, roxchick83, hope you have more luck with it Smile
