exercise minutes

Saturday, February 01, 2014

Ok, sorry sparkpeople, but this is just bugging me! How can someone track 840 minutes on the first day of February??? I thought we could only track 120 a day. Also, how does one track over 3840 fitness minutes in the month of January when you could only have3720?? Sorry, I get a bit competitive in my exercise minutes...

    I have decided to not even look at the leaderboards any more. Just too frustrating and when I get frustrated, I eat!! So I will just continue to do my two hours of fitness every day and know that it is good enough for me!

    Quite often people will prerecord their exercise for the month. If you check their numbers next week, you'll probably find that they haven't changed. On the other hand if you run a marathon or go hiking you can easily get more than 200 or 300 minutes in one day. However, only the first 120 minutes each day get spark points, the other minutes will be included in your calories expended report and in your Spark America report (if you are participating there).

    The only person you should be competing against is yourself. If you improve from month to month then you are doing well. If you are ill or injured you won't be as active, but the whole idea is to get some activity in each week.

    Not sure, but I think only the first 240 a day give you spark points. You can do more and they count toward your fitness minutes still.

    Though 840 minutes in one day. Have we even had that many minutes since Midnight?

    Oh my goal for the month, hit that 2500 mark.

    It is going to be tough, only 28 days and a wedding, mini vacation with very inactive people but I plan on finding time to walk and bringing my stretch band.
