I was wondering if anyone on this forum might have stumbled upon any resources for determining how your job effects your daily activity level (I'm specifically hoping to get calorie estimates, if possible!).
The reason I'm asking is that I'm trying to paint an accurate picture of how many calories I'm burning a day/how many I should be eating so I can get an idea of the kinds of deficits I'm creating.
I know for sure that teaching Kindergarten since September has me far more exhausted at days end than working at a desk all day did. Which makes sense considering I only sit down for a 30 minute lunch, I am always walking around and crouching at little desks, bending over to speak on the childrens level, tying shoes, teaching gym, art, wildly demonstrating at the front of the class to try and keep their little attention spans, haha.
I guess I just don't know how to respond to:
Light activity (1-3 times a week)
Moderately Active (5 days a week)
Very Active (Traning 7 days a week)
I mean, no, I am not working out yet, I am starting with diet, but I'm not exactly sedentary either!
Any thoughts? Anyone have a slightly active job like me?
