If you are using the Spark, there's not a way to manually enter the steps on your fitness tracker.

Sorry about that!

Thanks, Gypsygoth. I was able to manually put in the time, and I also measured the route, but I wanted the steps recorded...trying to get 100,000 this month on Sparkpeople. I will just have to chalk it up, I think.

If i forget my FitBit or it goes completely insane when I try to add something besides walking on their site (this has happened several times), I end up entering it manually, either by mapping my route (bottom right of your fitness tracker page here) or estimating using the options given (e.g. 20-min mile, 24-min mile, etc.)

I can't stand to completely "lose" the minutes! emoticon

Good luck!

I walked about 2800 steps and 1.8 miles according to my Fitbit. I have the new Spark Tracker, too, and that's the one I forgot to wear. Thanks for your response, DIDS70. Looks like I have lost those steps on the Spark report. :-)

in that 30 minutes how far did you walk? Usually 2500 steps is a mile (i think). I have a fitbit and if i forget to wear it, I lose the steps for that day.

I forgot to wear my tracker this morning. I added the 30 minute walk manually, but how do I get my steps recorded? Is there a way? Thanks.
