SparkPeople 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge

Monday, January 24, 2011

Today I joined the SparkPeople 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge team with hopes of getting my motivation back.

"SparkPeople's Official 8-Week Diabetes Weight Loss Challenge will help you take control of your diabetes and get real results! Get weekly challenges and a simple exercise program that's been proven to help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. By tracking your progress, you'll be eligible for weekly giveaways, quarterly grand prizes, and a special SparkTrophy to display on your SparkPage, too. Join anytime to start the challenge!"

I don't care about a trophy and I KNOW I can't win the prizes but I need help and hopefully this will start me back on track.

I read someone's blog last week that was a conversation between the devil and herself. i wanted to make one of those blogs too but I didn't want seem like I was copying her. Her blog was excellent!

So I'm off to see what I need to do.

Bye Bye pedometer!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Put my pedometer on this morning when I went for my walk. Says in 43 minutes I took 73 steps. Those are awful big steps for 2.06 miles so this is going in the trash. I changed the batteries, re-calibrated it with my steps, cleared it etc and it still won't register much. Brookstone isn't good for everything I guess. On the other hand, the pedometer I got with my starter kit from SparkPeople will register 4 steps just taking the thing from the shelf and clipping it onto my waistband before even taking 1 physical step.
PLEASE NOTE, I AM NOT IN THE USA SO I CAN'T GO TO A SPORTS STORE OR WALMART AND BUY ANOTHER ONE, THOSE STORES DO NOT EXIST HERE!

I still HATE THE NEW TEAM PAGES.

My sleep schedule is all messed up now. I go to bed at 11:30 and get up at 6:30, fall asleep on the couch at 9:30 PM, get up and get in bed at midnight, wake up at 7:15 not wanting to get out of bed, fall asleep on the couch at 10PM, wake up at 6:15AM. No matter what time I go to bed and get up I am still tired.

My weekend is here again, another trip to the grocery store and home again, how fun, NOT!

  Hopefully your body and schedule will even out. I know how hard it is to be continually tired. I also have little luck with pedometers. Wish you well emoticon

    I'm sorry! You sound really stressed. I've been happy wit hmy Omron pedometer, which I ordered from Amazon for under $35.

    Sounds like you're having a rough week. I'm glad the weekend is here and hopefully you get back onto schedule. Good luck!

    I have never ever had good luck with pedometers. You might want to look at a fitbit -- they are a little pricey, but so far it has been working well for me (and it was a Christmas present from DH to boot!). www.fitbit.com

Right now I think you can get 25% off at a certain website - if you are interested, let me know. Just bought one for DH and returned the favor.

Still hate the pages too - not much improvement.

Sorry your days are so messed up! HUGS! Just think - spring training is just around the corner...

The new team page layout IS HORRIBLE!

Monday, January 10, 2011

I've gotten a headache from the scrolling on the new team pages, my computer has locked up and my side bar is gone. It plain out SUCKS and i want the old format back. None of this get used to it, if that is the answer than SparkPeople lost a member but they really don't care.

Guess it is time for that Spark break now

    Did you see the button you click on to make it stop scrolling? That is what I did and then if you want to see them, you just use the slider button on the side. I hope you read this and don't give up SP. We don't want to lose you.

    I hate it too, and as I said on the team leader board, I am not one to mind change, I am pretty flexible, and I am tech-savvy. And I still hate it. Their improvements this afternoon have helped a little, but I don't feel like the page has improved at all.

    I'm not a fan of it either. I signed on and wa-la... it was like WOAH... i'm sure it will take some getting used to for me as well.

    I don't like it much either. I prefer having my spark points available at a click, without having to go to a pull down menu. I also don't like how you have to open new windows to see when the blogs were written.

    If you don't have any announcements or pictures on your team page, you can click that and you won't have the scrolling if it bothers you too bad.

I like it, makes it easier to navigate!

    It is always an adjustment when we have to face changes. I hope it becomes easier for you in the next few days.
