For body weight exercises like pushups, I would suggest leaving the weight box empty. That box is for exercises where you are lifting weight, say in a bench press you lift 50 pounds of weight, you would enter 50. But you are able to leave the box blank (it is not required to use that section) and for all body weight exercises, I would suggest doing that so it isn't confusing when looking at your fitness tracker.

Strange question:

I just started a 100 pushups in 6 weeks challenge (modified :)) and I was wondering, in the fitness tracker, are you supposed to put the amount that you weigh into the body weight exercises like pushups? Or is that for weight above the body weight that you add on?

Your Quick Tracker is listed on your start page only now (on the lower left side of the start page). If you track it there, you should continue to see your minutes in the report you are looking at.

I'm tracking my minutes the same way I always have been. But now it is the new fitness tracker that automatically appears when I click on 'track my workout' from the home page and when I click on 'my fitness' from the MY TRACKERS link at the top of every page.

FENWAYGIRL18 - I checked your account and you had a few pilates entries, and several of the entries in your favorites were manually entered by you. I went ahead and deleted those entries and left the on that is from our database so that it will give you the calories burned amount when you enter the minutes.

ROKIAS - Are you still tracking your fitness minutes in your QuickTracker?

My fitness minutes are no longer showing up in My Reports under 'weight and other reports: quick track goals'. I use this report ALOT to compare my weekly totals over time and for the past 2 weeks nothing is being tracked. My minutes are still showing up on fitness minutes over time report as well on the side of the page under Spark America Fitness Minutes.

Any idea how what I need to do to get them back on my quick track goals report?

It sounds like you have a manual entry that you saved. You can type pilates into the search box and there is an entry for that in our database that you can use that will give you calories burned for it.
