orometer not working as expected

I’m committing to do 500 push-ups a a week. I did 153 yesterday, but now it tells me to do 150 in less then a day or I pay 5 $
it’s like it’s telling me to do more and more every day until I do 500 full pushups the last day :dizzy_face::dizzy_face::dizzy_face::dizzy_face::dizzy_face:

what did I do wrong ? why I’m not seeing the cumulative graph instead ???

Hi @makouda! Thanks for sharing the confusion here – it’s always valuable to know what’s going wrong for people. It sounds like you’ve misunderstood how an odometer goal works. You always need to enter your cumulative total with an odometer goal – so if you do +10 on day one, and enter 10, and then you want to enter +10 the next day, you’d need to enter 20. It sounds like you were actually looking for a plain do-more graph instead! :slight_smile:
