I use a HRM, so SP doesn't "calculate" my calories burned for me. It would be difficult to log ahead since calories burned vary each time I exercise. Even if I am doing the same thing each day, sometimes my intensity is higher than others. So, I log daily--really a couple of times a day. If I tried to log in advance, same as others have said, my "best intentions" would definitely outweigh the actual results! Plus, I kind of feel a sense of accomplishment logging my minutes and calories after each workout and see myself reaching my daily goal! It keeps me going!

Wow, I have to agree with MARPARMC! If I logged ahead it would be to hard for me to take it back off if my "good intentions" didn't quite meet the mark! Thanks for the tip though..I didn't know you could post anything in advanced

Referring back to "am i logging my minutes right"...Just so that people are aware if they weren't the max you can log at one time is 1 week. So those people with high fitness minutes are only going out a week in advance.
