Question: Is there a problem with the Biggest Loser game?

My Biggest Loser game doesn't allow me to access the training module under the Fitness tab. I can do the exercises, but it doesn't give my character credit for doing it. I can input my calories fine, but I can't do anything else. Is my game defective, or is anyone else having this problem?

    Biggest Loser Challenge game mode: This mode is accessed by selecting the Fitness Program option in the user profiles' main menu. Basically, you select an amount of time ( 4 weeks, 8 or 12) when creating the program, and every day (real time) you are presented with certain activities for that day, such as entering calories consumed for that day and a predetermined training program ( which is determined by the game, NOT THE PLAYER.) There is also a field titled "Additional Training Logged" where the player logs any additional training they completed that day.
    If the user selects the calenar icon on the left side of the Fitness Program windo, they can select which days they would like to add a training session. If the player is unable to make changes to the calendar schedule, it is because the calendar is locked. There is a lock con on the left side of the calendar, and if the user selects it, the calendar becomes unlocked and the user can then select which days they would like to exercise. It is important to note however that whichever day the player selects to set as an exercise day, the following day is automatically set as a day for NO exercise, so from within the calendar the player is not able to set 5 straight days of training, as the game seems to follow an on-a-day, off-a-day schedule. If the player wishes to exercise each day, including days that do not have training planned, they can manually enter the exercise they would like to perform in the Additional Training Logged, section of any calendar day, but this can only be accessed on the actual day of that exercise, so the player will need to input the training they wish to perform every day, instead of doing it all at once in advance.
    One more thing, the player is only able to enter an amount of time they spent performing an exercise routine, so they will need to perform whatever exercise they wish outside of the Biggest Loser Challenge, and then add the amount of time they spent doing the routine in this sections. All of the routines can be accessed from the Exercise Routines option in the user profiles main menu.

    I actually figured out the problem, I think. Under the fitness program, the "Today's training" tab is not always highlighted because they only give you training exercises every other day. Once you click on the training button, you must do the exercises or you won't get another chance that day. At the beginning I was just clicking on it to check it out, and then when I tried to go back to it, it wasn't highlighted anymore. You must wait another 2 days before another training exercise is scheduled. On the days you don't have a scheduled training session, you can do one of the exercise routines, but then you have to manually go back into the fitness program again and log in the minutes you worked out. The program doesn't automatically give you credit for exercises outside of the fitness program, even though they're within the game itself.

    I still have another problem I haven't figured out. The manual says you can edit your calendar and move workouts to accommodate your schedule. However, the lock/unlock button doesn't seem to work for me. Anyone else have suggestions about this?? All in all, I love this program. Just has a few quirks to work out though.
