Intensity has more to do with how you feel during/afterwards.

Were you sweating? Breathing a lot heavier? Then moderate.

If it just felt like normal movement without much exertion then light!

Normal chores for me at my weight still give me a moderate, but for you they might be light!

Personally, I only count intentional exercise ie. walking, biking, swimming etc.

In my booklet I got from a lady at work it says...

Light Intensity

Can talk
Can sing
Breathe Regular
No Sweating

Moderate Intensity

Can talk
Cannot sing
Breathing often and deep
Sweating after 10 minutes

High Intensity

Can talk briefly
Cannot sing
Breathing rapid and deep
Seating after 3-5 minutes
