Not sure this is true but I think I remember it automatically counts any time not sleeping or other activity as 'resting'.
So if that's true, adding activities would reduce the 'resting' ?
But really:
I don't use Fatsecret for tracking exercise, since it is awkward & not an efficent way to Track excercise.
I track it on Evernote. (Cross platform note program, works great).

Dreaming at night: I have many many dreams, every night.

Bill, your experience with dreams is very much like meditation. In that, you detach from your normal thought processes and concentrate on the now, and you learn to look at your thoughts and behaviors with curiosity and dispassion rather than judgement and condemnation. I also dream a lot, and I find my dreams are starting to reflect the same thinking I have been trying to develop during the day.

Excellent!! Smile

and another kindred spirit. Smile

Thanks for sharing. Razz

Dreaming at night: I have many many dreams, every night.
Decades ago when I did 3.5 years of therapy, we focussed on dream interpretation.
I've had some amazing dreams.
Dreams allow us to be someone else, and/or to see things like we would never otherwise be able to do.
I once had a dream where I was presented with a challenging circumstance, and in this dream I was an ancient Chinese mystic MASTER.
So, in this situation in the dream, where normally I'd be judgmental or critical, even offended, as a Master guru I was Humble and amused, but most of all I was Honored (that this despicable antagonist in the dream, was choosing me to insult, to boost his own fragile ego.) I was able to personally experience these thoughts and honest feelings!

Of course dreams allow us to deal at the subconscious level, with issues in our lives.
So, it's important to get enough sleep to HAVE those dreams, where we resolve issues in our daily lives.

Last night I had a disturbing dream of constantly being manipulated and deterred, one subtle way after another (Somewhat true of a video game I play, & mostly true of corporations in general today.)

Corporations have all the power now. They've changed all the laws that were put in place to limit them, several hundred years ago when corporations started.
They control governments (with lobby) and are firmly entrenched world wide.

No wonder we have eating disorders.
And the food choices we have are ones promoted by MASTERs of deception.

Awareness, and choices.
It’s OUR choice. Smile
