Wow! What did you do? I managed to get 85 on Saturday which isn't that unusual as it's one of my strength training days - those "other exercises" sure add up!

Sadly, I'm gonna have to drop out of this challenge.
Due to some unforseen issues, i just found out that we are having to change internet providers, and that won't be taken care of for a couple days. Because of this, I can't use the interenet at home. i am using a computer in our appartment complex office right now, but it's only available during the hours they are open :(.
I'll still do my best to earn points, but wont' be able to do it as easily right now :(.

Have a fun weekend everyone!

Sandy, I thought the same! I had to go to Carolyn's original post to see what an ODC actually was! LOL!

Looking back at my points for the last couple of weeks, my numbers have been all over the place, from 2 one day to 67 on another! Consistency? Does that word mean anything? LOL! I think I'm averaging about 25 to 30 per day if I added them all up and did the math, but I'm not going to do that. I'll just take that number and aim for 50 tomorrow!

I only have 375 to go to my 30,000 point trophy!

I will try to maintain 90 both days. I usually get 88 to 125 depending on the day.

ODC- One Day Challenge

Either today, Friday else tomorrow, Saturday, try to get more SparkPoints than you usually get. If you usually get about 40 points in a day, try for 50 points. If you usually get about 70 points a day, try for 80 points.

Let us know if you will do the challenge Friday or if you will do it on Saturday and how many points you would like to get!

On Friday, today, I would like to get at least 70 points. How about you?

This challenge is all about POINTS!
