You're so right mate. About the vit D thing too, that's a great point that doesn't get trapped about much. I get a bit of energy burn from my 10 K steps, but way more important is getting that daylight and fresh air. I have to supplement to get vit D except in summer with my skin tone, but getting out is still good. Daylight exposure is good for the diurnal rhythm, gets all the body's daytime physiological processes working properly, triggering hormone releases and as Lainie days good for the mind too.
I take vitamin D in the winter as well, started a mile walk on non gym mornings
