What is a normal amount of hours/week for total activities?

After a discussion with a friend about total hours spent on ECs per week, she thinks my number is crazy and that adcoms will think I'm exaggerating/making stuff up.

I don't really have anything to compare it to. I'm not going to change my numbers so that they look more realistic because I was very honest with my commitments, but I was wondering what is considered typical for applicants at top schools?
