I used "reason" in a sentence with "Begruendung" and I lost a heart for it. It said I should have used "reasoning." Now I used "reasoning" and it said I should have used "reason."

Without further context "reason" is a better match. See here fore some context information: http://en.pons.eu/dict/search/results/?q=Begr%C3%BCndung&l=deen&in=&lf=

I would use "Grund" for "reason" in a sentence.

Is there a difference between "Begründung" and "Grund"?
