I only do active burned calories if I'm moving my Fitbit counts calories that I've walked or actually did a workout burning. Since I've been doing this I'm starting to lose weight plus I log my food

Do you log all the calories burned in non-exercise activities?

I have my Fitbit to count all my steps and only log my active minutes of 10 minutes or longer

I count all of them, but I guess at least 10 minutes of steady activity is what really counts. To me, all movement is good.

So I know the steps count no matter what. If I take one, my garmin logs it...pacing in the kitchen, counts! Walking to the back to talk to kids, counts! BUT...what do you count towards your burn. I know there are multiple places that count calories, but do you count the multiple outfit changes we face getting dressed (getting kids dressed, etc)? Do you count house cleaning? Do you count unloading groceries from the car to the house? Or do you simply count the focused efforts towards fitness/exercise for your calorie burn?
