I guess one way would be to use "standing" in the exercise tab, or time "walking". That is a though one. And the number will vary by person.

I had the same issue with work although I am in a different field but I made a combo of so many hours standing and so many of housework. Maybe you could do the same with standing/walking.

You could wear a pedometer and log your miles!

I have a job that has me walking back and forth for hours, and after wearing a pedometer for a week, I found out I was walking 12 miles a night. It blew my mind. Totally counts as exercise!
