lightly active? moderately active? very active? Can I have your input?

I never know what to answer for those calorie calculators etc. I know they aren't the best judge anyway, but I'd just like to know if I'm more or less active than I believe haha.
I don't go to the gym but I live in a city, and in a typical day , Maybe 4 days in the week I'll walk 2 miles, and even though its not much, I take the stairs at work, maybe 6 flights a day. On less active days I'll walk maybe 20 blocks. And I try to run 2-3 times a week. I guess I'm walking on the streets for about an hour each day, and the rest of the time is spent at work at a desk, or running errands. I always feel like it would be ridiculous to put that I'm "Active" since I dont really do much exercise, but I don't think I'm sedentary either. What do you think? how do you guys judge your own activity levels?

if you really do run 2-3x per week, I'd give that moderately active.
lightly active is just your walking and stairs and such.

I think this is especially true when the rest of the time we're just sitting on our butts at our desk jobs!

I'm guessing you're trying to put a label on it in order to use one of those online calculators to figure out your daily calories requirements? If that's the case, I would go with lightly active, and then use either the treadmill read-out or other online calculators to figure out the caloric burn for your running (they're great - they take into account your pace, weight, height) and add that to your "lightly active" number for the days when you actually run. If you don't like the idea of eating a different number of calories on different days, add 'em up for a week and divide by 7 for an average daily number.

I would say you are lightly active except your runs, depending on how many miles you run, may put you into moderately active. If you are running 2 miles 2 Xs a week, I'd still say that was lightly active, but if you are running 4 or 5 miles 3x's a week, I'd go with moderately active. Deep down you know how active you really are and over estimating your activity level will only make you think you can take in more calories than you can so I would play around w/ different calculations.

i like the attached link b/c after you enter your stats, it calculates your metabolic needs and gives you examples of a person that's lightly, moderately and very active.

    I had a much similar situation and had told me that finding the solution here would've been possible. So now I know that I'm lightly active, according to those calculators, and I've got to add however many I run.

    I would too call you being moderately active. You do do some running as well and that should be counted differently. I've contacted the denver web development team as well and they've shown me around the platform really well.
