Calorie Advice Needed
Hi. About six months ago, I switched day jobs (I'm a musician)-- I used to assistant teach Kindergarten, and now I walk dogs in Manhattan. Which pays far better... (sadly?).
I commute to Manhattan from Brooklyn, about 18 miles RT, and bike about 6 more during the day going across the park and to various clients' places. All the biking is fairly intense; I ride a road-fixie with a 42 in front, 16t in back and don't put my feet to the ground too much. I walk from 10-6, no break, and if I had to guess I'd say I average 2mph on foot, so 16m walking.
So with 16m walking and 24 miles biking, I'm getting a pretty good amount of exercise. I have no idea, however, how many calories I'm actually burning. When I get home I sit on my ass and recuperate, so that shouldn't be included in the total
Since I picked up my activity level with the change, I'm struggling to figure out exactly how much to eat; I eat until I'm full but I still seem to be losing weight-- anybody willing to venture what kind of calorie expenditure is happening?
