New Trophies!

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

This morning I got up and turned on Spark and found that I've received some new, never seen before trophies from them.

It used to be that we'd only get trophies up to 1000 fitness minutes for the month. It kinda left me not wanting to work really hard the second part of the month. This month I got a 1500 and 2000 fitness minutes trophy! It looks like we get them up to 2500 minutes in a month! What a great thing to reach for, it's easier for me since I have a fitbit attached to me at all times, so they're gathering my collective daily time, which is kind of skewed, but in order to get 2500 in a month, I still have to work at it. I'll bet it was added because there are so many people hooked up like me, so it's easier to gain those minutes when it's tracking me all day.

The other thing we're getting trophies for is lifetime miles. It looks like it gave me ones for all the miles I've tracked on here so far, so I have trophies for 25 and 50 miles, then for every even 100 after that. I'm up to 700 lifetime miles here so far! I'll have to see if I can get 100 a month to keep on getting a trophy each month!

Trophies are what helped me get this far. I enjoy the weight loss ones, even if I have to wait for every 10 at this point. I enjoy my year SparkVersary trophies. They may be virtual, but it's the little things that keep me going. I enjoy those virtual reminders that I'm working hard at moving and eating right.

Are trophies something that keeps you going? What a fun little thing to get just for moving!

    I really don't pay too much attention to the awards, as it is something little and a reminder maybe but I still keep looking to the future so much as I have a lot of weight left to shift!

    Oooo hadn't noticed these. I shall certainly be chasing some of these new ones. I have to admit to being guilty of losing incentive once past the 1000 fitness minutes each month.
Thanks for blogging about them.

    My favorite new trophy is the lifetime miles/kilometers one! I was thrilled and surprised to sse that my highest is 1,300 kilometers (yeah, Spark also thought of us with different metrics)... and I can't wait to see what is next!

    You bet those trophies motivate me! I even had to make up my own "faked" 1,500 minute trophy before SP added one. I'm thrilled! It truly is amazing to my analytical side that I find a virtual trophy so incredibly motivating. :D

    Haven't seen any for me yet but today is the end of the month and I do have over 2000 fitness minutes so we'll see if any pop up the next couple of days. In the mean time congrats on receiving them and great job for the month of July.

    I love the trophies and I am very excited to see some new ones coming out. They may be virtual but you are right, they keep me motivated to keep getting more.

    Awesome! I love digital trophies, virtual achievement rewards, etc.! I don't see mine yet. Maybe they will populate when I enter my exercise for today...

    I love the awards! I guess it is silly, but I think it is fun. Just like when I was a kid and worked to get a gold star on my chart! I am just a big kid now and still enjoy rewards.
I am a Geocacher and they are having a Challenge for the month of August. You get a virtual piece of artwork for every day you find and log a cache in August. I want to get all 31 but know that is not realistic, so I will just try to get as many as I can. For information on Geocaching, go to Geocaching.com
It is a fun and inexpensive (uses an app on your cell phone) and good exercise hobby--Like a treasure hunt!

    I can't never get the miles to track on here. So I haven't done any that I know of. I like the new fitness minutes trophies though. It will definitely get me to strive for those more than just the 1000 each month.
