Default More Accurate Way to Measure Walking Calories

After reading the women’s book (which I love!) I have decided to model my calories in/calories out as follows:

RMR*1.3 (I have a sedentary job) + 1*(number of minutes standing) + 2*(number of minutes walking) + other exercise calories

I like breaking it out this way because it incentivizes me to stand at work (which I feel is good for me to not have such tight hip flexors) and go for walks or walk when I have the option to over other more sedentary modes of transit)

A friend suggested that 2*(number of minutes walking) might be too low of an estimate if I am carrying anything, am on a hill, or am walking quickly. Do people have thoughts on whether that estimate may be low?

I am a 5”7 ~130 lb female at ~19% bf.
