Filter context on a variable

Hello,

 

I have a table that correctly shows the "current savings" for this year to date (see below)

I want to add a fixed amount that is stored as a variable to each row... when I do this it seems to break the date context filter and shows ALL of the months in the year:

ANy idea what i'm doing wrong - what I want to see are months July through to current month with the current savings and measure for those months.

 

Thanks folks!

Value plue 100 measure: =
SUMX (
    DISTINCT ( 'Calendar'[Month-Year] ),
    CALCULATE ( IF ( [Value total measure:] <> 0, [Value total measure:] + 100 ) )
)

Thank you for replying. I have tried that and it works. I was wondering If there was a "best practice" way of handling constants and filter context?
