I was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing a problem I am having with the website Exercise Diary since the newest upgrade. When I try to increase the number of hours spent sleeping, I get an error message. Also, If I add an activity, it is automatically deducted from "sleeping" rather than giving me the choice to deduct it from some other activity, like it used to give the option of doing. The activity "resting" is grayed out, and only changes if I reduce my sleeping hours (which I have set to 8 hours by default). Is this happening to anyone else?

Be sure the total number of hours for the day equal 24. FS won't let you change an entry unless it all adds up to exactly 24. Hope this helps.

Actually your reminder helped me to an extent. I think I'm having a lot of trouble because of the default activities I have set for each day. Since I have 8 hours of sleep as the default (and 0 "resting" hours), when I add any exercises at all for the day, that comes out of my sleeping hours by default for some reason, then FS won't let me increase my sleep hours back up again (I get an error message). So at that point, I have to select one of my other activities and decrease it, which then increases the "resting" hours, and that then allows me to increase the sleeping hours. It is a time consuming (and annoying!) problem. Still I love FS. It has been a great tool for me. Hopefully the problem will be fixed with the next upgrade. Thanks for the reply!
