Level 19 is harder than I thought!

Sunday, June 30, 2013

I still need almost 6000 points to be at level 19. Several months ago I thought it would be easy to finish up level 18. emoticon emoticon
I get about 100 points a day.

Those of you who got to Level 20--God bless you!

I try to focus on my food and exercise goals emoticon emoticon , communicating with my team emoticon , supporting others emoticon and getting support for myself. Points are not my goal!

It is just when being close to the next level that points become important to me. emoticon

emoticon for the friends and information and motivation . I know points are not the goal!

    You will get there! Keep going! I am trying to get to a level 6. Like you points are not important to me as much - but when you are close you want to get to the next level! emoticon

    emoticon It just takes time to accumulate the points and as long as you are learning and moving forward, then that is a lot more important than accumulating points. I just find them nice to give goodies to others.

    I've spent way too much time getting those points when I should have been doing something more productive.

    Chris, it's great to see your focus is on healthy living, but it IS fun to see those points rack up, isn't it?! I'm also nearing Level 19, and it's fun to see how many points I get for the things I do each day. I like your blog.

    emoticon I enjoy how this website is setup. I wasn't totally aware of the different points needed for different levels. Now I will really appreciate those high #'ed levels. It shows me a person has taken the opportunity not only to use the tools themselves but also to help others. I enjoyed your blog, and the title was a real eye catcher :-)

    Look at the points levels. Level 17 is 10,000 points. Levels 18 and 19 are 20,000 points. It is going to take twice as long to get through those points. It makes far more sense to focus on changing your life, learning about how to live healthier, and communicating with others than earning as many points as possible. Look at what you do each day on SP: is it getting you closer your your healthier lifestyle goals or closer to your point goals? If you only got to spend 30 minutes on SP every day, what would you do to maximize your time? Would you read articles, visit teams, log your food and exercise, or post blogs? Which activities would get you closer to your healthier lifestyle goals in a short amount of time? Really consider this for a few minutes. You might even try setting a timer for 30 minutes and seeing how much you can get done, to gain some perspective.

    SP is meant to be a tool for learning and changing. It's not really meant to be a permanent part of our lives. Could you imagine logging in every day for 10 or 20 years? If you spend 3 hours on SP every day for a year, that's 1,100 hours you could have used living life instead of talking about life. That's almost 46 days! How much of that time could have been spent exercising, enjoying time with friends and family, or making/eating healthy foods instead of talking about doing these things?

    I'm not saying we shouldn't spend time on here, or that the tools aren't great. But we need to weigh the positive effects of living healthy with the positive effects of living on SP.

    It is fun to see those points grow, even though in themselves they do not get us to our goals. I've made my focus the fitness minutes ticker now, which also adds to SparkPoints. :D

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon I thought I would never get there either Chris, but with a lot of hard work I finally did .
    It wasn't my priority . but as I needed to loose weight quite quickly, it was a incentive.
    I do my bed exercises, this gets my heart rate up . Then I have breakfast, then off to walk bobby .. By then,my heart rate is going well and calories are burning off .
    I need to keep moving and build up muscle around my joints ..
    My personal program works for me.

    While accumulating Spark Points isn't our goal here on SP, it does help to motivate us and get us involved! You will get there!!!!!!
