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.

Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
