Hmm, that could be a tough one...I would think there is too much variation. Some sit more than others, some play all the time, sometimes, or never, some stand to read; some sit to do so. I think what you are getting at is probably best addressed by where you set your lifestyle calories. If you want something more specific, keep track of how much time you spend doing each, and then log it in that way by particular activity.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
