    On this personalized Home screen, it is in a folder

    If we feel that we were jogging ten minutes at six miles per hour, we'd press that
    .
    We won't have to edit very much here at all.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    If we have a ten minute mile, let's just type in 15 minutes, for example, using the keypad at the bottom of the screen
    .
    The "Calories Burned" changes depending on how much we've jogged.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    Then we can select exactly what time we started as well

    That will save to "Cardio Exercise", "Running (jogging)"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    We'll see at the top, the Calorie Intake has the Food plus Exercise
    .
    It gives us more calories that we can intake for the day.

    We can also go under the Search bar, where we have the options "Frequent" and "My Exercises," which are the ones we've entered ourselves
    .
    On the right, there is "All Exercises," where people have things we might have done in alphabetical order. We have the option to choose from "Aerobics", "Belly dancing", "Bowling", "Dancing" again, and "Elliptical Trainer". Every thing is in alphabetical order.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    Whichever one we like, simply tap on it
    .
    They even have "Horse grooming" as well, so it's quite extensive. We can just tap "Line dancing" for this example. Again, when we fill in the Minutes Performed it changes the "Calories Burned" depending on how intensive the exercise workout is.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    Then in the top right-hand corner tap the white checkmark again to save

    We can see now that it's added even more onto our Exercise
    .

    Now, we can simply tap the Home icon in the bottom left corner, which is the picture of a house, to return to our main menu
