MANGAN64: In my opinion, since this was not typical and you were definitely "extra" active, you should, at a minimum, give yourself credit for the same exercising/calorie burn you give yourself credit for when you walk during a work break. If for example, you can get in a 30-minute walk at work break, then give yourself credit for having done that much. I frankly think people often underestimate how many calories they burn at physical-type jobs.

That counts as activity. Exercise involves an elevated heart rate (cardio zone) for at least 10 minutes. If you are regularly this busy at work, you may want to consider changing your activity level under your Account Settings. Otherwise, unless you're hungry... just consider any extra calories burned to be bonus cals toward weight loss.
