I got the tracker in the mail yesterday. I am somewhat aware that I compete in some areas against my daughter and my husband. On a physical level, I can't compete...they would blow me out of the water. But, I can hold my own in a geocache competition with my husband.
And, so far I have done well with Spark Points competing with my daughter....OK, I had a head start, but I am a senior citizen, I need a head start. She finds 8 cups of water relatively easy. I slosh. She gets points for all her extra minutes of exercise, primarily hill hiking. I needed to find something that I could actually combine with............breathing, for instance.
Enter the Spark Tracker. It measures my time. I need 120 minutes fitness per week. Since I was sick, I fell well below that. Today the tracker said '119.' Ooooh........so close! So, I crawled on my bike, and got my time in. Drat.....I looked at my steps. 5996! Now I had to walk some more to reach my 6000. After fixing supper, the steps came in.............over 10,000. I could not believe it! OH, NO! I just saw that I have walked 4.9 miles. Really? I am starting to get tired, here. But, I am not sure I can sleep knowing I am so close.
I can handle losing competition to my husband and daughter. I am not equipped with competing with myself....or a cyber tool.
