Thanks so much, Coach Jen. I'm glad to hear my thinking isn't way off base!

I think it's a matter of personal preference how you track it. If you want to track both mental and physical exercise, then I think it's fine to do, especially since you're not counting calories burned as part of the equation :)

I do regular cardio and strength training (and stretching), but have been considering adding meditation to my exercise groupings. I believe it's good mental exercise and while not calorie burning, just as important as physical exercise.

Thoughts? I would be especially interested in hearing from a Spark Coach, but welcome other thoughts. I don't want to feel like I'm "cheating" on getting exercise points!

Thanks,
Stephanie
