Be very cautious about counting work activity as fitness or calories burned. As you do an activity day to day, you burn fewer calories over time, because your bodies adapt. You won't burn as much as you would deliberately walking at that speed, even if you calculated it, because your heart rate doesn't get into the cardio range. Your work movement is not, likely, cardio.
That doesn't mean you don't need more calories than someone who is working a sedentary job, but it is not a replacement for fitness and will not improve cardiovascular fitness.
Thank You It just seems so much wasted energy not to count it, when I come home, im wiped for a bit so no way of exercising when I get in the house

The only thing I could recommend would be to get a pedometer and calculate your steps into miles on the average 2000 steps per mile. Then you can calculate minutes by how fast you think you are walking, again average waitress about 3 miles per hour.
I am a waitress at an IHOP, depending on the season we work about 5-7 hours a day with no break... That means walking (at a high pace) and carrying plates to and from kitchen to customers... Can anyone estimate what, if anything, I could count that as, when it comes to calculating exercise
