Moderate or very active?

OK, I need to work out how active I am for one of those online calculator things (I know they're not terribly reliable, but they're a baseline.) So the options are sedentary, lightly active, moderately active, very active or extremely active. Anyhow, this is what I do exercise-wise during the week:

1 hour of weights (split up into two sessions, working most major muscle groups.) The weights are not particularly substantial - about 9-12lb.

Between 20-50 minutes of VERY intense cardio (usually 78-90 % of my maximum heart-rate.) five or six days a week. However, other than this, I’m pretty sedentary during the week, my usual week will consist of:

1 hour of walking around the supermarket (at a moderate/slow pace.)
2 hour out in town (one of which will be walking at a moderate pace.)
Sometimes a half an hour walk in the area (not every week though.)

Other than that it’s just doing computer work at home, very light cleaning and occasional walking around the house/garden.

I think given the fact that I do intensive cardio, but am fairly sedentary during the rest of the day would put me into the moderate exercise bracket, but I’m not too sure.

Any ideas?

My opinion on that would be that you are very active :)

well, I would make a calculation for both (moderate and very active) and then I would find the arithmetic mean between the two results. but if you really want to pick one, probably go for very active ;)
