like some of the new fitness tracker changes, but not all

Friday, June 22, 2012

I know they have to work out the kinks but getting used to something new is always a challenge. I like that I can create a group now with all my bowflex exercises and then click that group. although I had to enter it 3 times this morning before it took. Something was wrong with the link. But I miss those extra 10 points I used to earn for doing my strength exercises 3 times per week. It felt good to get those extra points. I always got the normal 24 points for all my walking and steps so the extra was for days I did the strength.
I did notice though that they now give you up to 5 points for commenting on sparks blogs. That is up from 2 points before. That is nice to encourage supporting each other and making new friends.
Oh, we love and hate them at the same time.

Hope all my sparks buddies are doing great today. Happy Friday and have a terrific week end.

    I've noticed that the older I get, the more I hate changes - but eventually I get used to them so I presume it will be the same with this change. Sigh!

    It was somewhat difficult to get use to the change but I love them now. The grouping feature is such a time saver!

    Right now I have not tried the new fitness tracker. I have had so much going on I do not have time to add anything else. I do my walking every day. Hopoing next month is better for me and I can get into taking good care of myself.

    Yeah I was wondering if I should change to the old version but maybe should give the new look a try. emoticon

    I'm one of the hate changes people, especially when it comes without warning, at least I was able to set back to the used to be screen, but still they could of warned us they were making changes
I used the appointment calender all the time as a reminders tool to remember to call someone, or buy something not just for dr appts emoticon

    My sentiments, exactly!
I guess it keeps our aging brains active anyway!

Plus- it shows calories burned for ST now.
