I HAVE MY TRACKER it took me a long time to get it but now I have it and I have decided to look at all of the exercises and videos and hand write them. Then I can deal with what I want for each day.
I have been using the Nutrition tracker since it changed and I am hoping I am correct in saying this will work roughly the same way.
I am not computer savvy as I said before, I know very little about computers but when I ask the community for help they give me the very basic steps to get there. I TRULY appreciate hearing "look slowly down the left side of the page and CLICK on My tracker" or "Hold your mouse over the word tracker and “Find my Fitness" "Look along the bottom and find where you can go back to the old tracker” that is my language.
That makes sense to me I call it computer Kindergarten.
Many 5 years old children can tell me exactly what I need to do but they cannot understand my questions there is a void They have all the skills with their fingers but I am unable to communicate just where I want to get to. They know where to go without thinking about it. HOW great is that!
Only the persons as computer illiterate as I will understand what I am trying to say here and it goes both ways. Trying to ask the experts at the computer store is the very same way. They cannot understand what I want to ask because I do not know the lingo. I have a number of Spark friends who can bail me out because they know I am a very smart lady who had not even thought of using a computer on my own till I decided to look for Spark. That was after I had read the book.
I feel sure most people found Sparkpeople.com and then looked for the book. Not I!
Tonight I am a happy camper I have been at this almost all day I type with 2 fingers and I watch the keyboard I cannot remember where my fingers should go. I write what I need to and then copy it in to word and have it spellchecked for me. It does A great job of capitalizing my letter “I” since I usually put in a lower case “I“. I get there. It just takes a great deal of time to post.
I know you all know I am long winded if you read my blogs, so there is a lot to type that is not helpful and I sometimes go back to my roots and use a lot of words spelled the English way so spellchecking can get tedious. I often hit the “caps lock “half way through and I used to be able to "CHANGE CASE" but the lap top is windows 7 and I was in XP with Microsoft Works so there have been many changes for my inadaptable brain to get a handle on.
Anyway, I think some of you who do not know me well have told me to go to stores for help where I have to pay money we have paid out more than the computers purchase price already so that is futile.
If I take my computer to friends I feel I am imposing and our sons live miles away and 2 out of three in different time zones. So when I reach out to my Spark friends these are the people I know will help me out. Now I have discovered that I am very slowly learning small steps to become a kindergarten computer student. Woo Hoo I will learn with the help of my friends. I did that all day today and as I said I am a happy camper till the next computer problem arises.
If you have any cooking or sewing problems I will share my expertise when I have the correct answer.
Right now I am very happy with my many tutors, you all know who you are and so do I.
