The first things I thought of (when reading the title) are that sometimes it takes a while to update the minutes from them being entered or lately they go to all zeros when the month changes until a few days in or once you enter exercise that month (like even the "this year" shows zero).

Also, (and this affects SparkPoints, not total minutes) you can only get points for up to 2 hours of cardio...but that wouldn't affect the minutes on SparkAmerica.

Glad you figured it out, though...sometimes we do silly things and it's all okay.

LOL, STEPHANIEK247. It's no problem. I think we've all done similar. Thanks for sharing :-)

Oh my gosh guys, You're not going to believe this!! I DID IT AGAIN!!! What is wrong with me lately?!!!! Yesterday I asked a question about something and then realized Im an idiot and just didn't see what I was looking for and now I have done it again!! The minutes are right, I was looking at my calories instead of my minutes in my log THATS why things weren't adding up in my head! I need a nap! I must be going crazy!! I'm just going to stop asking questions because, clearly, I am losing my mind!!!

Thanks everyone for being so kind to me... I don't know what my deal is this weekend!! LOL!!

Huh, Weird... I must be looking at something different? What is my shared fitness tracker? -- I'm going to look around for that so I can understand this! Thanks! :)

Hi STEPHANIEK247 - I took a look at your Shared Fitness Tracker for the week and I came up with the same total that you said SparkAmerica shows for the week -- 314 minutes. How I calculated it was I added up all the cardio & that came to 289 mins. Then added 5 mins for each strength exercise and for each stretch session listed, that was a total of 25 mins. So the two combined comes to 314.

Not sure if you are looking at a different log or something? I'm not professing that I understand how everything is tracked here on SP; but this one seems to have added up for me. What do you think?

I see on the side of my screen a little box that says My SparkAmerica Fitness Minutes and then it gives a number for This Week, This Month, This year and my year goal -- But it isn't accurate?! It says I have 314 fitness minutes this week but my workout log says I have much, much more! Does every minute not go over into that?! Im confused!
