well I didn't know you could do things ahead of time. I can understand how setting the goals and then trying to live up to them would be inspiring.

Never knew that.

I think at one time you could log everything in advance. You can still log up to 7 or 8 days in advance now, but it used to be that you could do it for months in advance. People would log their food, fitness and other goals, and start the month with tons of points.

I completely understand logging food a week or two in advance if you're planning your menus, but to log fitness, especially checking off strength training exercises, is a blatant point-grab in my opinion. I wonder at times how many of those pre-logged points are then actually earned? But then again, it's not really for me to judge. Hey, if they're "cheating" for points, it's really only their health that they're cheating. I do think it's really sad.

beats me. I have also notice some people at the very beginning of the month had 1,000 hours of exercise in. When the month wasn't a 1,000 hours old yet.

I have also notice if I add exercises twice in a day that my later exercise are never record.

I think a design flaw

How is it that our leading SparkPoint earners get SO many SparkPoints?!?!

I keep scouring my SparkPoint page to see what am I missing, but have YET to find additional ways to earn SparkPoints. I've read all the articles, so I only find a new one once or twice a week.

Anyone care to share tips, secrets, etc...? :-)
