Don't stop working out just because you have already met your stated goals. Exceeding your goals on a one-off basis is a good and healthy thing.
But as you get fitter and exercise becomes a part of your regular liefstyle, then the number of calories you can comfortably burn will increase. If you think you will regularly be working out more, than you may want to adjust those goals to reflect your increased level of activity - your Spark Exercise Goals are accessible from the LH side of the Start page.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I go over every week. I've even adjusted my settings some. I just don't overdo it. I don't work out if I feel tired and if I'm working out and struggling I take a 10 second break and jump back in if I can. Just do what your body tells you to do.
You can't choose a resistance setting from most machines when tracking on Spark. Your best bet is to look at what entry Spark does have for that machine, compare the figure to what the machine reported (if it does), and choose the lower figure.
The calories burned is a guideline. You canmanually change it if you do more. Don't push yourself when you first start out, but do what you are capable of. Make sure you're working at a level that is challenging, but that is also something you can sustain for the rest of your life. Also, if you're getting the calorie readings off of cardio equpiment, be wary, they are not always accurate.
