Did it again,117 last I looked. I just keep plowing along... trying to figure out how to have success at least in one area of my earthly life.

I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

Yea! Isn't it fun to have at least some positive progress here at SparkPeople?

I squeaked by with 109 this morning. I'm finding that I'm burning through the articles from SparkExperts so that the end of them is on the horizon. Strange.

Gotta go!

Ciao for now,

I spun two 50 pt bonus flags today, so no doubt about getting over 100 pts today. hahaha

Well, since my body is liking me to do much exercise I'm having to get my points the old fashioned way -- by making a scholar of myself and being a smarty-pants around the community. hahaha

Yes, I made the goal yet again.

I've been fortunate to be able to spend the time to be getting over 100 points all week. The challenge to interact and learn enough to gain points is something that has been a great benefit to me. It is a positive activity. And I am hooked on doing Sudoku in the Games section. I've also been posting on the Other Goals section, tracking 90+ points and special "me times".

Sometimes it all can just seem quite dark. But being a history buff, I am assured Life has always been this way since the Fall. We can sometimes fall into a Darwinian view of Society as if we are constantly getting better every day, every year, every century. But we've always been the same brutes we are. Good thing there is hope, and real personal change that can be affected.

Keep up the great work, and keep up your chin.

I see you have thrown down the gauntlet. I take up your challenge Gregory!
I am at 12 points.
It is 7:06 PM

I am going to see what I can do in the next 5 hours

UPDATE 4 minutes later...7:10pm I am at 84 points due to login spin, a 20pt flag and a 10 pt flag with a couple small one, plus exercise points.

If I just apply myself I could do this daily...time to go track my goals and read an article or 2

7:26 I'm at 102 now

7:55 I am now at 137 after reading several articles. My eyes are tired. i may come back on later.
Thanks for the motivation

Last look I was at 206 points. I scored one 20pt flag, everything else was working Other Goals and liking - commenting - posting - pinning - Tweeting - and such. Whew. Busy bee today. It helped keep me inside instead of being outside smoking.

It is the journey we make that is the path; the path is not the destination. Do not go gently into that dark night. Wait, that's something else. But the emphasis is the same to all negativity in our lives, that we do not surrender. Any temporal victories we have in this life are the past after we have completed them, until we must strive against them when the trouble shows up again.

One fine day, that will all be past. One fine day we will have our tears dried, and will have the leaves of the trees alongside the river of life for healing us of our real wounds and spiritual trauma. Thanks be to God.

I scored over 100 again. And I am learning, pinning, tweeting, and encouraging others as much as possible.

It is good for us to have good humor, about ourselves, others, our experiences. The alternative is to do stand-up imitations of Jack Benny and others. However, we all bleed silently. That's why we need each other, and encourage one another. If I can't cheer up myself, I can try to do so for others.

That's my take on it. But then, what do I know, eh?

Over 104 pts so far, and it's 0700 hours. I have been awake since 0200 hours though, but I do enjoy reading articles. 20pts for this team was the highest bonus points I achieved Today.

I have kept pushing through it to keep up at least 100 points or more every day now. So far I've been successful.

Too bad I'm not yet that successful with losing weight. But since my waist has shrunk, some of that fat has been replaced with muscles. Too bad I haven't had any mussels lately, but here in the Texas Hill country there is not too many places to go gather them. But when I lived in Seattle, Oh-oh-my I did eat them.
hahaha

I made it yet again, namely by reading articles, playing games and quizzes, and such. My hope is to keep active and learning. Who knows if it really makes a difference, except for my peace of mind perhaps.

Good job with the 104!

I've hit 100+ the last week or so. Actually it helps to get a large bonus spin but isn't necessary. I've been pinning articles I want to save & share... which gives points.

I've also been doing games and trivia.

So far today, 106 points.

I'm on the fourth consecutive day of posting over 100 points during a day. I've gotten lucky sometimes with bonus spins, but namely reading emails and team digests, games, trivia, tweeting SparkRecipes, articles, liking and commenting, posting and such.

I thought I'd start the challenge to see if you'd benefit from this as I have. I've learned some things about nutrition and exercise, racked my brain for A-Z word games, and read encouraging blog posts.
