Ordered the new Spark Activity Tracker

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Well I got this notice tonight about the new SAT. It said in the FAQ that you would get 500 Sparks points for ordering this item. Wonder when the points will show up. They took my credit card information, so I think the points should show up ASAP. Will let you all know. It took a few days years ago after ordering the first Sparks books for the points to show up. We will see. I am really hoping by using the SAT, it will get my motivation back up to wanting to be more active again. I got weighed at the doctors last week and I am back up to 208.5#. I wasn't that heavy when I originally started with Sparks in 2009 @204#.
So I am getting a bit depressed but hopefully the doctors will get this thyroid thing under control. They have schedule a ultrasound for Thursday morning to check to see if anything is abnormal. One of my sister had thyroid cancer but I am hopeful it is nothing like that. I also see my Rhumatologist , pro-time clinic and dermatologist, all the same day. It will be an early morning since I have to be at x-ray @7:30am,, Rhumy @ 8:45am in same building, pro-time clinic is at 9:30am across the street, then Derma @ 10am but I have to drive up the street about 1/2 mile or so. Think I will come home and take a nap after all that. lol
Today was my oldest sister's birthday, she is on here but not every often. Firery1 is her name, and I think it would be swell if some of us would send her b-day wishes. I hope this will motivate her to get on board here at Sparks. xo to all.

    Sounds like you had as busy a day as I did yesterday, except I spent mine shopping for other people. Well, for me too, but mostly others. And I think I have to do it again today as well.

But I got the e-mail about the SAT too and wonder about it. Let us know if you like it when you get it. I want something like that but want a GOOD review that I can trust first. LOL

    I'll have to read up on what the new SAT is! Hadn't heard of it yet! But, if it motivates one to move, then I could use it! I will go wish your sis a happy one, even if a day late! May I ask? What is a Pro-Time Clinic? I hope all the doc appointmenst went well and you were able to get in and out of each to proceed to the next! I think scheduling that way is the way to do it! I do hope they get your thyroid condition under control and that it is nothing serious. Keep us posted! Let us know about the SAT once you get it all going too! Thanks!

    Hoping your day turns out really good, Terri!! I had a thyroid tumor many, many yrs. ago and surgery removed all that would cause me a problem. I am think about ordering the SAT as well. Hoping it would be the tool for me to get more motivated!

    the points show up once you sync the new gadget to the system just like the fitbit and body mass thing

good luck with getting the thryoid under control .. mine was and a doctor who thought she knew more than others changed my meds which caused a 30 pound weight gain for me.

    I got the e-mail as well. I have known quite a few who have gotten the Fitbit and are quick to get into the challenges and win crazy milestones awards and keep up their activity to the 10,000 steps and number of floors. It appears to be highly motivating.
I doubt I will go for it as I am motivated to take my fitness classes which I love doing for the variety -the thought of doing a bunch of steps daily bores me lol. It would be helpful if I had better scenery then the concrete jungle which is hard to walk on anyway with my joints. I do get mega steps in when Mom and I do our long trail hikes on the weekends when I am free.
That is some pretty tight scheduling. I hope none of them run over time -all too familiar with waiting for my appointments and getting in long past the time I was scheduled.
I do hope they get your thyroid under control -that is the worst for weight gain and so very tricky getting the right amount of medication dosage too.
Good luck with all your appointments! I see my new rheumy next week!
