At SparkPeople, we believe that streaking can motivate you to reach your goals. Put your clothes back on—we're not talking about running naked in public (although that sure could inspire you to tone up or drop a few pounds)! We're talking about a different kind of streak—when you consistently meet a goal, like tracking your food or drinking 8 cups of water each day. For years, Chris "SparkGuy" Downie, SparkPeople's Founder and CEO, has used streaks to reach his own health and fitness goals. Long before he started SparkPeople, he accomplished a 700-day exercise streak that even inspired one of his co-workers to lose 50 pounds!|
You probably familiar with the concept of rewarding yourself when you reach a goal weight or accomplish a fitness feat. Sometimes it's even more motivating to reward yourself for the journey, not just the destination. Seeing how consistently you've been taking steps to reach a goal (and knowing others can see it, too), can help boost your resolve and keep your motivation going strong. This is especially true when you've done your part but the scale hasn't budged, even though you've been making the right choices every day. That's why we created SparkStreaks—a SparkPeople tracking tool that can motivate you to stay on track and help you reach some amazing goals!
