OK, I am hopeless. I looked there & only find the current day I enter...no matter, I guess you can "scratch" me, as with this back situation, I'm lucky if I get to move 15 minutes a day..the spirit is willing but the body is weak...Sorry, guys...

Up at the top of your page you will see START -- MY TRACKERS -- ARTICLES/VIDEOS
and more. Click on MY TRACKERS, scroll down to FITNESS and enter your minutes on there.

It's been awhile since I've had a FITBIT, but it must tell you how many minutes you have exercised, besides how many steps, or the distance. If not, you will just have to estimate. For example, when you go shopping you know about how long you are walking around in the store, when you go for a walk, jot down how long you walked, etc.

Maybe someone with a Fitbit can advise you further.

Just went through my fitness tracker for August:
1 Aug = 190 minutes
2 Aug = 74 minutes
3 Aug = 83 minutes
4 Aug = 85 minutes
5 Aug = 90 minutes
6 Aug = 30 minutes
7 Aug = 78 minutes
8 Aug = 101 minutes

If you enter your stuff on your fitness tracker, this will be so easy to keep track of.
Also added up what the rest of you entered in MINUTES, not steps or miles:
MEEZERMOM = 15 + 30 + 15 + 45 = 90 Minutes
KURTZIE = 65 + 348 = 413 Minutes
ARTJAC = 3420 + 590 = 4010 (is this right? that's 66.8 HOURS in 8 days)
GOALCXX = 15 + 34 = 49 minutes
ADRIENALINE = 512 minutes

Today so far: walking 32 minutes, then gardening 25 minutes

NOTE: Everyone try to report your exercise in minutes, as that's what we are keeping track of. Not steps, nor miles, although you can add that info along with the minutes if wanted.

Is that 348 minutes so far this month? You need to say if it is for TODAY or so far this MONTH!

Remember, gals, we are counting MINUTES, not calories burned. Some of the numbers getting entered here just are not coming out right. I'm not referring to you, Joyce, although if you are claiming 348 minutes for today, that would equal 5.8 HOURS for today. Not likely.
So let's start being more specific.

I doubt any of us will have a problem with getting 465 minutes for the month.

Adrien -- that's an amazing amount of steps; and looking over your post, I'm sure you meant to say you walk a 16 minute mile, not 16 mph -- you'd likely fall over dead before you did that one! lol

I just saw this challenge so I haven't been tracking time for walking much. But I want to participate.

I start every working day with a 3/4 mile walk from my car to my office. I walk for about 40 minutes every lunch time and then walk the 3/4 mile back to my car. I like to get about 12,000 steps a day.

So far my pedometer says I've walked 65,397 steps this week and I haven't walked yet today for lunch. I try to walk at a pace of 16 minute mile which keeps my heart rate up. My pedometer calls 2000 steps a mile so I have walked about 32 miles this week at 16 minutes per mile comes out to 512 minutes so far this week. I'll start tracking time on my next walk.

I got in 38 minutes with my morning walk which was 1.8 miles -- good start to the day.
I got in 20 minutes of gardening -- another 20 minutes on an evening walk.

Jacque, noticed you said you have in 3420 minutes so far this week, and the week isn't considered OVER until after Saturday ends. Do you realize that is 57 HOURS of exercise?
How is that possible -- that's more than a person works with a full-time job. Please explain!

Later this afternoon I did extra watering in the garden area and picked some weeds, so I've chalked up another 30 minutes. Don't know if I'll make it for a walk or not, the darn bugs eat me alive even when I spray myself. But 60 minutes total isn't bad.

Good for you, (Texas) Eve -- keep reporting and keep up the good work!

Since I am battling back pain right now, exercise is at a minimum, but I am sure that I must walk around at least 15 minutes a day, so I will join the challenge...
