Default miles walked

Hey is there an option or place to log simply the miles that you walk in a day. Not so much really for counting toward activities but just to record it. I wear my pedometer while at work to track how many miles I put in in 8 hours, but can't really count it as an activity since it's kind a factored in to my lifestyle. I just want to be able to report it somewhere as either steps taken or miles walked. Any help would be great!

A University of South Carolina website has the most comprehensive listing of energy expenditure for various activities that I have seen.

I use "ski machine" for the arc trainer that I do (similar to an elliptical machine), and use aerobics dancing in place of the kundalini yoga and pilates I do. I would also like to see "health club circuit training" for the weight machines at the gym, or "strength training", something along those lines. Thanks!

hh:mm
HH is for the hour and mm is for minutes.

In order to put in 2 hours and 50 minutes type it like this 02:50 You have to put the : colon you can't just use a period.

You don't have to put miles if you put time, but you can put miles instead of time if you know what they are.

As far as activities, I am using the PC version now and have not yet seen how to customize activities. I haven't looked very hard either though.

Chey, on your PC version you can customize activities from the activites tab....top menu bar to add a customized.....or edit an existing activity from the "Action" drop down menu

Default Add Spinning

I take spinning class 3x a week and have to enter under biking. While similar, I would think spinning would be an option.

I also have a Heart Rate Monitor so I know the exact cals I have burned and I wish I could just enter my own custom exercise with my own custom calories. Surely heaps more people on here have HRMs.

^to above poster isn't there a stationary biking option? (eg, the bikes in the gym)

Default Add an Activity

I agree, there needs to be a way to add additional activities like you can food. Try just using the running as a calculation of what your doing. I stay on the low side of my calculations. ie. When I use the eliptical machine for 30 mins, the machine says I burned 400 cal.

I use the running at moderate levels for an adjusted time period to equate to 75% what the eliptical machine said that I burned. (I dont trust the machine as much as I have been trusting FitDay.) By staying at 75% of what the machine is saying im erroring on the side of pushing myself and not giving myself a false sense of accomplishment.

I like this idea too. Any news on it, Jim?
