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.

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?
