Hi SmilinLadybug,

Thank you for taking the time to post your question.

We recommend logging all exercise on MyFitnessPal only with the exception of walking/jogging/running.

The Fitbit is designed to best capture your movement through space, things like walking/jogging/running can be easily captured by the Fitbit device.

However, items like golfing, Spinning®, or rock climbing are best logged on MyFitnessPal.

When you log any exercise on MyFitnessPal, you will choose a start time and a duration. We then send that data to Fitbit who removes that time period from their data and replaces it with ours.

You can read more on the topic here:

Hope this helps.
