I recently read from a couple of sources that jogging is considered vigorous activity. All this time, I was considering it so far away from vigorous that I wasn't even factoring it in to my calorie calculations. For a while, I've been trying to figure out why I've been craving more food and I was trying to tell myself that this is how I'm supposed to feel on a caloric deficit. Now, I'm thinking I need to eat more, but I'm still reluctant to increase my activity level from the usual "Moderately Active" to the "Very Active" category.
Could I please have your assessments based on these activities?
-Wendler 5/3/1 program (main lift + 2 assistance lifts) (3 days/week)
-Jogging 5mph for 30 minutes (everyday)
-Walking 30 minutes (done only when I work up the motivation, estimate a conservative 2 days/week)
-My lifestyle also has me walking at least 45 minutes everyday (walking from my barracks to work and back a few times a day)
-A couple quick ab workouts on off days just to ensure I meet the standards for our PT tests
Yes, I am in the military if you couldn't tell from above. No, that does not factor in because I am on voluntary PT and the work is mostly sedentary.
