I'm 50, but remember a few of our teachers would do a fast pace walk around the playground. Though several teachers would just stand there and stare and even 1 or 2 would grade papers. Maybe could get a few kids involved, play follow the leader and do a few jumping jacks or jog in place for 10 seconds, etc.

Thanks for the insight. I was so happy that I was getting up and moving on the job, that I had not really thought about if it increased my heart rate as exercise. I guess that I very rarely exercise by that definition. I don't have the energy or strength to exercise because I am tired after being on my feet teaching all day. I need to work on that area of exercise if I really want to get healthier.

It is nice you get to have a more active period on your job. I do want to caution against calling it exercise. Are you getting your heart rate into the cardio zone and maintaining it for at least 10 minutes?

I have an extremely active part time job. I work 2-3 days a week at a local dinner theater as a hostess. We are WORKING and I usually get 3-4 miles of walking in a typically 3 hour shift. We are also schlepping our menus around the room; 13 menus weigh 15 pounds.

Do I count this as exercise? Nope. Can I cut back on my intentional exercise because of it? You betcha.
