If it is just one active week(end), I wouldn't worry too much about going over the recommended exercise calories. It only becomes an issue when your TYPICAL weekly activity level exceeds your goals.

For me, the Fitbit overestimates my calories burned during exercise. It counts all moderate and vigorous activity, so if I take a leisurely walk with my kids, it counts that as exercise when I'm not even getting my heart rate up. Just something to consider when tracking.

I'm curious to find out what others do who have a FitBit

I burned a lot of calories over the weekend, lots of hiking, camping and whatnot. My SP calorie burned goal is 1800 calories per week. When I synced my Fitbit and SP when I got home yesterday, it says I already met my exercise goals for the week.

What I'm trying to figure out is when the FitBit tracks your calories, are they including your BMR calories on top of your exercise calories? I still have most of the week of planned exercise to do but I'm getting the warning message on SP about burning too many calories.
