Stay Motivated with SparkStreaks!

How (and Why) to Start Your Own Streak Today!


  • Hi spark folks!

    I'm just curious-- is there anyway to set up streaks for "5 out of 7"-- or customize to your schedule?

    As I work on computers all day, my weekends are exclusive NO ONLINE time-- so I never get any streaks, but would love to customize my page so that I can feel motivated to login and interact monday-friday....

  • If it wasn't for spark streaks, I know I wouldn't keep going. Who would have known that such a simple concept of "I'm on a streak, can't break it," would keep me on track. I have tried so many times to lose weight and always have gained it back. I know this time will be different because this time I am using all the tools. Thank you Spark Guy for caring about me. - 5/22/2013 2:05:42 PM
  • This is a great tool for me. I can do anything for 10 minutes (well, most anything!) I love SP!!! - 4/12/2013 1:10:52 PM
    Since I've walking 4 miles a day my husband is sighing me up for the Revlon walk!
    My husband and daughter have been doing it for years, this will be my first.
    I'm looking forward to it! - 4/5/2013 8:19:04 PM
  • Can relate to Moms100, I too have jumped out of bed plenty of times since joining SP on November 1, 2012 to log/track my points! Lol

  • I love the concept of sparkstreaks but I don't like that it only records streaks in weeks versus days. I tried to set up a user defined streak that I want to do daily but it wouldn't let me. bummer! - 4/3/2012 2:44:11 PM
  • I don't really like how complicated the SparkStreaks and Team Challenges are. They don't sync well, and they should. The Team Challenges require you to go to a special page and enter exact amounts of data, that should already be recorded, because you've done it in the fitness minutes area or the SparkStreaks page. So it's all messed up. I hope SparkPeople learns to sync it better, because it's really a pain the way they have it. - 1/14/2012 11:50:36 PM
  • I loved the concept of tracking streaks.. until the day I forgot to record a day's entry. I didn't realized I hadn't entered it until the following week, and the Spark system wouldn't let me update it. To have a months-long streak end because of a purley technical restriction was more than a little disappointing.. and the end of tracking streaks online for me. I have exercised at least 10 minutes a day since February 20 2011.. but you won't find a streak for it. - 11/3/2011 10:11:59 AM
    This is sooo coincidentally scary, in a good way, lol! I just recently posted a blog that highlighted one of my sparkstreaks! Iím currently on day 127 of 10+ min of fitness (which is hiking steps) & counting!! Even on my scheduled rest days, I have 10 mins to spare! And itís all bcz I purchased ďThe SparkĒ, an amazing, motivational & inspiring piece of reading material. When I read how he & his coworker had parted ways, she was determined to start her own streak, which she did bcz she was inspired by Chrisí streak.. She dropped like a bit over 50 I believe. Even though Chris had heard that she had lost weight, when he had finally seen her he sounded like he was proud of her. I mean by reading the book you can just kind of envision it! Why wouldnít he. Anywho, itís all bcz of Chris (SparkGuy) that you, me & millions of others are spreaking too, lol. SP ROCKS! Thx Chris (SparkGuy) (: - 11/3/2011 1:54:08 AM

    I love SparkStreaks, it helps a lot with coming online every day and tracking things. There are some days I'm tired at the end of the day and don't feel like logging in, but the SparkStreaks make me do it anyway, because I don't want to lose the current count :) It's a good way to be pushed forward. - 1/23/2011 7:30:29 AM
  • I appreciate my success more when I track what I have done. I can see where I have gone right and it keeps me motivated.

  • I agree...who would think a 55-year-old woman would get excited about SparkPoints, Awards and SparkStreaks. But I do! They have helped me with my fruits and vegetables and most of all, have helped me to give up diet soda, which I never thought I could do. Unfortunately, I didn't realize until last week that even though I had set it as a goal the end of May...and have stuck with it since May didn't set it as a SparkStreak.

    Now I have to work on the exercise part...that has been a huge struggle for me. - 8/3/2010 8:19:24 PM
  • You know you're addicted to Spark streaks when you're tucked comfortably in bed & suddenly hop out, saying, "Oh, no! I've got to log in my water (exercise, etc.) so I won't loose my streak!" - 5/14/2010 12:23:46 PM
  • I love SparkStreaks! It's a good way to get confirmation of your achievements. - 4/17/2010 9:45:56 PM
