I Love Spark Points
Saturday, August 11, 2007
Those Spark Points make me focus HEAVILY on the lifestyle changes I need to make to achieve better health and a more comfortable body. Not only do the points act like achievement stars on the daily activities, but the points earned for reading all the material help educate me on the best way to make ideal choices for my fitness.
Plus they light the competitor spirit in me. Once I discovered the leaderboards I like checking my earnings against the world, the nation, my state and my region/city.
Tonight I finally hit #1 for local. I may never pass this way again. But now it's fanned a flame in me to work toward #1 in the state....at least as close as I can possibly get.
And I know the competition is tough, so if my nature is best performance under pressure, then I've put myself in a race against excellence. It feels inspirational.
Watching the points going up feels almost as good as watching the scale go down.
