Use the physical activity assessment tool provided on http://www.mypyramidtracker.gov
to keep track of any physical activity you do over a 3-day period. Use the registration
instructions in Appendix B to set up an account with the MyPyramid Tracker Web site if
you have not done so already. Use the Analyze Physical Activities feature on the Web
site as a reference to determine how many calories you burned during the 3-day period.
Then answer the following questions:
o What everyday changes (if any) can you make to increase the amount of energy
expended in your day-to-day activities?
o What types and amounts of exercise would work best for you?
o Can the activities be performed year-round? If not, can you suggest alternative
activities and locations for inclement weather?
