Day 247 Update: Site Updates -- Streaks and More!

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Hi Everyone

I've done about 10 minutes so far today to get another day in the books -- more to come later.

I hope you like the new site updates we launched today!

Here's a page that shares the details if you are interested:
www.sparkpeople.com/blog/blog
.asp?post=new_feature_roundup_enhanced
_streaks_and_photos_with_status_updates


I'm excited about the new look to the Start page and some other pages. You probably can guess that I'm very excited about the enhancements to our Streaks functionality with the new daily Streak Awards and featuring streaks on the Start page. Hopefully this is a fun motivator for people to stay consistent with different goals.

Let me know what you think if you have a chance -- SparkCheers!

I'm not too sure about the look of the Start page - having the Streak stuff at the top looks awfully cluttered after the more open look of the Mood/Water etc.
However, I'll get used to it.

Day 246 Update: Chicken Races

Monday, December 15, 2014

Hi Everyone

I hope you are having a great Monday!

Today is Day 246 of my streak -- about 45 minutes today spread throughout the day.

Last week was a little crazy around here. We had a big storm here in California that gave us a bunch of much-needed rain. We were lucky that the winds were lighter than the original forecast.

It was funny to see people surfing on Lake Tahoe because of wind gusts that reached 112mph in that area. Here is a 7-second video if you are interested in seeing this:
time.com/3631411/surf-lake-ta
hoe/


Because of the storm, we kept our chickens locked up in their barn for their safety for that day.

To make up for it, we took the 6 chickens out to our yard over the weekend. They really liked one spot in the yard, so my boys each took a turn taking one chicken each to the other side of the yard and then they would "race" across the yard. It was funny to watch and they got good exercise.

Snoozy ended up being the racing champ. At one point, I was across the yard from them and called out for friends Snoozy and Brown Bear. They both immediately ran over to me. I checked online and read people say that they have chickens who recognize their name. It seems that one key is spending time with the chickens when they are babies and handling them (which we did with ours).

On another note, a member sent me an interesting article talking about how there is good evidence that chickens are the closest living relatives to a T-Rex! I can really see this. They have many mannerisms that you'd associate with dinosaurs.

Have a great week everyone!

    Oh my! Don't know how I missed this blog! My next door neighbor has chickens and most of them respond to their given names!! She has Geraldine, Hazel, Goldie with rooster Chester ( these girls are what's left of the originals) and also Crybaby, Carerra, Sweetie and rooster George. George is an :"Easter Egger" as is Geraldine of the originals. Beautiful birds! Geraldine lays the prettiest blue eggs (hence the name "Easter Egger").
Have a lovely day and love to the family ( including the chickens)! (((HUGS)))

On a lighter note, I love your chicken tales. I'm not surprised about the chickens recognizing their names. I care for a lot of wild critters and always talk softly so I don't startle them as I make the feeding rounds. They respond to kindness and repetition just like children. Speaking of which, your boys are learning some important lessons too. emoticon

    I love the Sparkrecipes, and particularly I love slow cooking. I began experimenting a few years ago in an effort to up the veggie consumption and eat healthier, plus we need quick meals on hand, but don't want to serve frozen foods. We are trying to stick with clean, whole foods. We have also come along way with gardening and having fresh food to pick and throw in the pot, and we are enjoying some meatless meals as well. It turns out we are especially thankful for these meals in the Spring and Summer when we stay outside as much as possible, yet still have a quick, healthy meal ready when we are.

Another positive in this area, is learning to enjoy tomatoes, onions, and peppers, along with the flexibility of using only what I have on hand, and enjoying it.

I would love to see your experiments on video for some new fresh ideas.

This week I'm pondering new goals/direction/changes/growth for 2015, then update my vision collage.

Went to 2 parties this weekend, but had a healthy lunch before both. The first party a friend said you have to eat something they put a lot of work into all of this food. Told her no thank you, I don't have to eat to be social but go ahead and eat.
The second one was a cookie exchange. I took my cookies and gave half to our son and daughter in law. Temptation is every where and I hope I can stay on the right track during the holiday season.

    Went shopping with a group of ladies from our RV park, which I usually don't do because I'm just not a shopper. When we had lunch at Red Lobster, I chose shrimp skewers with rice pilaf and broccoli and only ate one of the biscuits, (they are soooo good). That's much healthier than what I really wanted.....lobster bisque soup or shrimp linguine alfredo.

    I think I already did this, but just in case... This has been a good but stressful week. I went to the doctor for a regularly scheduled check up (stress-er, I'm allergic to doctors). Everything he checked was A-OK and I got a pat on the back for loosing 5 pounds since my last visit. I've been baking mountains of holiday treats to give away and have thus far been able to limiting my taste testing (much improved over previous years). I also managed 2 out 3, 2-mile walks in heavy rain and enjoyed them. Finally managed to make it through a visit from my crazy (really) sister without too much fall out. Thanks for asking emoticon

SparkPeople Amazon Affiliate Information

Friday, December 05, 2014

Hello Everyone!

As mentioned in last week's "Hello from SparkGuy" email, a super-simple way you can help SparkPeople is to do your Amazon shopping using this link:

sparkpeople.com/amazon

When you use this link, SparkPeople earns a commission for each product purchased as part of the Amazon Affiliates program.

I will also be putting together a list of "Products I Love". As I mentioned in the original email, just like I built a program that integrated many areas of life to help me overcome anxiety, I also made it something of a hobby to find great products that can help me or my family in some way, so it will be fun to share some of those with my extended SparkPeople family :).

Some members asked good questions on a message board about the details of this, so I have started putting together a FAQ that shows details. I'm also working on a fun idea that could be amazing if we get enough people doing this.

Here is the start of the FAQ:
**

As background, Amazon has had their affiliate program for at least 15 years (hard for me to believe it's been that long!). they view this as an important program for both their Affiliates, but even more importantly for their end customers, so they don't want to do anything with this program that would hurt the end-customer experience.

To answer your questions:

1) Yes, the way they are able to track purchases is because of the code embedded in the url -- that code let's them know that the purchase comes from SparkPeople.

2) ZERO personally identifiable information is passed to SparkPeople or any affiliates. So that means that we never get ANY information that we could connect to any individual. To be really clear, that means: no names, email addresses, credit cards, zilch.

3) The only information we see in a report is information about products sold -- date, number of items sold, etc. This makes sense for everyone because then an affiliate knows which types of products are selling or not selling even if the affiliate has no idea who is purchasing them.

4) The prices are the same whether someone comes to Amazon directly or via an affiliate link like the ones I shared. Amazon is able to do this because it's sort of like an advertising program where they don't have any advertising expenses related to the sale of these products. As a hypothetical example: Instead of buying a TV commercial on NBC, Amazon instead has this program with thousands of mostly smaller websites. If Amazon did run an ad on NBC, it would be somewhat similar to this program in that NBC would earn money for running the ad, but NBC would not get any personally identifiable information about the sales on Amazon even though these were NBC viewers. SparkPeople is probably one of the larger types of companies to participate in this. It's a pretty cool program overall.

5) We can't offer participants anything directly for doing this since we have no way to identify who they are as mentioned above. BUT, I am working on an idea related to this that could be fun if we get enough members participating in this. And it's a simple way to help cover some of our costs (it costs in the millions per year to run SparkPeople and I don't earn a salary or take any money out of the company, so this could be helpful).

6) Since this program has been around for at least a decade and a half, it's unlikely there will be any material changes that affect consumers. I can tell you the odds of Amazon ever sharing any personally-identifiable information (names, email, credit cards, etc.) with affiliates would be about as close to zero as you can get. That's because doing so would open Amazon up to data breaches if one of their affiliates didn't have strong security.

7) This program works with Amazon Prime (the Amazon program that allows you to get free shipping on many items for a relatively small annual fee). I love this program and use Amazon Prime through SparkPeople all the time.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks a bunch for your support -- I appreciate it!

SparkCheers!

Rosa, I hope SP can figure out how you can help to support too.


SP Guy, I wish it AUTOMATICALLY gave SP's affiliation with a 'click' for that option - maybe offered on the prime membership page ... like a tick off box vs manually using the link you've provided, but, I have sent your blog link with the amazon link to my email. I didn't get the email and it's not in the junk file but I may have accidentally deleted it in the Christmas blur. Thank you.

  Chris, I understand what you're saying about taking responsibility and taking that second between stimulus and response to change your response, but the frustrating thing I always run into with self help advice and books is the HOW. Of course I don't want to have this negative reaction and I can recognize when I am having it, but so far I have been unable to figure out how to change it. My brain is not a light switch to where I can say oh I'm feeling scared, don't be scared! Because it won't work. My problem is social anxiety and shyness as well. Do you have any resources or recommendations for the how? Maybe Frankel offers this in his book?

    Love the quote & the book!

I'm looking forward to upping the number of steps I take (more dedicated walks in my future!) and getting back to some strength training.

Have a great week!

    My added goal this week is to start off the day with a glass of water.

  Loved the quote. My goal is to not get sucked into family drama. Gonna attempt to drink my full 8 glasses of water each day. emoticon

    I completed three walks even though I fell and hurt myself again (that would usually have been an excuse not to go)

I managed a disagreement with out loosing my temper.

I had a great week and I hope you did too! Thank you for sharing your favorite quote, I will remember it.
