I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal!
When I first joined sparkpeople, I felt the the site was very overwhelming and by concentrating on earning my spark points, I really learned the site quickly! Now I am addicted to earning my sparkpoints!!
Every week I sign up for the Spark Virtual Races and post my time... either walking or running. If you walk (or run) at least a mile once a week you are eligible to post your time and collect a trophy! If you aren't doing this already be sure and check it out.
Did you know that SP keeps a list of people who have added you as a SparkFriend, but whom you have not added? I discovered this after being on the site for a year, and found a few people for whom I had missed notification emails that they had added me, so I was able to add them now. Yay for new friends!
I started with SP on January 21,2010. At that time they did not have a quick check for veggies & fruit.Now THEY DO ,so I added it to my Nutrition Tracker! Getting enough fruits and vegetables in my diet is a challenge for me! So it HELPS ME TO SEE AT-A -GLANCE how my totals in the fruit & veggie group are doing! An ADDED PLUS is seeing myself ATTAIN the 8 fruits& veggies daily! I already LIKE the water glass feature! If you are interested in adding the fruit.veggies to your Nutrition Tracker--
I find that viewing my spark points page helps me to navigate through a lot of the things this site has to offer. Before I was loosing things because I would click on a new interest then not get back to where I started. Now I just go back to my spark points page to start again.
