This might help...

If you use a heart rate monitor and keep good notes, you can create custom exercises and just fill in the approximate time and calories like I do.

You can also create custom groups made up from custom exercises. Of course, it's a bit more work, but it does work.

Use google for that.

If what you are doing truly is "day to day life", the those calories are already accounted for in your activity level.

Is there a list I can scroll through for available cardio fitness activities I can choose? Especially those involving day to day life?

A lot of my physical activity is a result of my living on a small farm. I see "gardening", but I don't see anything that differentiates between heavy work and lighter activities.

Stairs... it's all about gym stairs, not about stairs at home.

Moving/lifting heavy objects (NOT gym objects, practical at-home objects?)

I know all caloric expenditures are going to be approximate... but seriously, they are, anyway!

Thanks for any list you can refer me to.

Working on healthy: Nutritious, sustainable, day to day, low carb-ish living. AND getting out and about and exercising... Yep, better do that!
