Thank you for taking the time to contact us. This sounds like you may have set up custom goals on certain days.

You can change your goals in the settings of several of our apps, or online at

On the Website

  • Log into our website at
  • Click My Home then Settings then Update diet/fitness profile
  • Make any changes you desire, then click “Update Profile.”

In our Android, iPad and iPhone Apps

  • In the Menu (or “More” page), profile details are divided between “Goals”, and the “Settings” page under “Profile.”
  • Tap any item you wish to edit, and be sure to save your changes by tapping the check mark, if available.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback.
