Thanks PETALIA for the info, I still need to get better acquainted with the new star page, I'm a slow person to accept changes...

I track several things in 'Other Goals'. SP writes:

Other Goals gives you a place to add custom, personal goals to your SparkPeople program. They can be anything you want to achieve - not use the snooze button, wear your seat belt every time you get in the car - it doesn't matter, it's completely up to you. The only thing that matters is they are goals you are interested in achieving! Go ahead, add some now and challenge yourself!

On the new Start Page, I've customized all six goals I would like to track. The difference I see between the two places to track goals is that the Start Page requires one to track on the very day itself whereas the Other Goals page allows one to track for team goals, Special Goals, Fast Break Goals...whenever you like. You might track on the day itself or perhaps track yesterday's goals today. Having two separate places to track is somewhat confusing. I'm not always able to use the internet so the Start Page set-up for goal tracking is not the best format for me. Hmm....

Petalia, you've got me thinking as well. I realize that on the new start page, I am able to rate my mood between 8-10 everyday because of the yoga I do.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

In Fitness Tracker,search for Yoga, it will appear Power Yoga and Yoga (general stretching) plus two programs that SP has, choose Yoga (general stretching) if what you do is Hatha Yoga and add to your Fitness Tracker.

The Fitness Tracker lists Power Yoga (Vinaysa or Ashtanga) as well as Yoga (general stretching). For what you describe, following a beginning yoga CD, I would enter Yoga (general stretching) at 45 minutes. Yoga has innumerable benefits. Aside from a few forms, cardio it is not. The amount of calories burned will be accurately low on the Fitness Tracker. So many wellness qualities the SP Fitness Tracker does not track. Too bad. Maybe other folks have ideas about how to customize tracking their practice on the SP Fitness Tracker or devising your own criteria to track, perhaps in the goals section of the new Start Page or something. Hmm...your question has got me thinking. My yoga practice has increased my wellness in so many major and profound ways. A mere workout it is not, in my eyes. Burning calories is not what yoga is about either. Yet, tracking one's progress with achieving good health in general and yoga in specific could be really valuable...This team has a few team goals aiming towards consistency of practice. Those could be motivating and informative to add on to the the simple Fitness Tracker. I've rambled. Your question got me thinking.
