I find myself in the same position as the poster below me. I burn at least 500 calories on a 30 minute free run, and they only estimate that I burn like 200-300, which is crap to me, I'm pouring sweat and my heart rate is in the 160's the whole time. Anyway, I just do what the PP said and track my stuff manually.Edited to add that I too use my HRM watch during my exercise routines on there.
SP does actually have Wii and Wii Fit activities in their cardio list now, but I find I am actually burning more than what they estimate. I have just created my own catagories. I have a Wii Sports Medley and a Wii Fit Medley on mine. I just keep my HRM running while I'm doing everything and input my total time and total calories burned. As for the strength training, I try to find SP activities that are similar, but if I can't find one, I just add whatever Wii calls it and put in my reps and sets. Just work with it and do whatever is easiest for you.
"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities crept in - forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old mistakes and nonsense." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
I tend to group the aerobic activities into the same slots that SparkPeople has and track them that way (Advanced and Beginning).
Strength activities I track and log just like I would an individual strength activity. Of course, some of the names change (For example, I use Standing Adduction and Standing Abduction for the leg twist and leg lift activities, I'm at work and can't remember the actual Wii names! Sorry!)

So I'm a new-bee and am not quite sure how to log my WiiFit time here on SparkPeople. It looks as if I have to breakdown my Wii Workout and log the minutes I spent on each Wii activity individually, which is a real pain. How is everyone else doing it?
