I'm retired too, but have been unable to setup a SpparkAmerica profile (keeps rejecting my email). I've had to abandon the platform completely. Sad, because it was an easy to use, user friendly one.

Thank you. I am a state retiree, and they are setting up a system as well. I will have to check them both out.

Of course, the state one gets me a discount on my insurance copay!

@DENI47: Here is a link for Spark360/SparkAmerica https://portal.spark360.com/Account/SAEmai
l/0

I've been using it a week or so now. So far this is what I'm seeing:
There's a lot of articles, just like SP (both motivational and health-related).
Looks like there are some monthly challenges (I haven't checked them all out yet).
You can track exercise minutes through the "Fitness Game", but there's no indication of calories burned.
No detailed food tracking. Only a slider of "how did you eat today" and "how many fruit/veg did you eat" and "how much water did you drink" type questions under the "SparkCoach check in" section.
The "SparkCoach check in" section lets you measure other things too like stress level, sleep quality, current weight, etc. Not detailed, just sliders & text boxes for you to free type
No socializing - I don't see any Teams/groups/chat sort of features.
No exercise library - at least not that I've found

I guess it's OK (for being free), but I know a lot of people are going to miss the detailed food & exercise tracking.

Any link/info on Spark360?

How does it compare to SparkPeople?

Frankly, I am not motivated to check in since I learned this site is closing :(

Back in the US. Georgia is fantastic! Lots of hiking, non-GMO fresh foods, and great wine.

I highly recommend visiting, especially if you like history.

Yippee! We have been chosen for the spring arts festival!

COVID is impacting our practices, so we are going to do some old numbers. But, most of the crowd will not have seen the dances so this will be new for them.

Happy to be dancing again!

Well, was working out in the park on Tuesday. Started people watching and ran right into a low branch with my forehead.

I took a step back, leaning over and holding my head. Then, when I stood up, I smacked the top of my head on the same branch.

Sounds like an audition for the Three Stooges!

Got a beautiful new costume in the mail yesterday. Here's hoping things start to get better and I have an opportunity to wear it soon! (Although I should probably finish the choreography it's for first...)

So, been AWOL. I am 'essential' so working regular hours. Plus, helping my husband with his business has become basically a part time job.

I am trying to be more regular on SPARK - my weight started creeping up because I stress eat. Missing our troupe practices as well :(

Hope everyone is staying safe and well!

Been working from home thanks to my employer's social distancing policy, but I'm finding without my daily commute (even if it's short) it's easier to fit in a daily dance practice.

The second Hippie Fest was great - nice weather and a huge crowd. A couple of times I got worried about a contact high :/ Lots of children and we had fun playing with them.

Last night we did the fair performance. We were stuck in traffic and running late. When we got to the parking, we rolled down the window and said "We are dancing in 5 minuntes! Can you help?" They stopped traffic and waved us through to a closer parking area. My carpool mates and I ran into the fair, tied on our hip scarves, and entered the stage. Whew!

It'll be inside, but our dance community is scattered around the state so bad weather means many won't be able to attend.

The troupe did Hippie Fest over the weekend. The weather was cool and damp - not really raining but occasionally a mist. Low turnout, but we had fun. The drum circle asked us to dance with them :)

There is another one this upcoming weekend so we will be heading to that one. Hope it is warmer and drier!

Well, went to my 40 year high school reunion. Funny - few people recognized me. I was quiet and nerdy in HS with frizzy dark hair, big glasses, and braces. Big change since then! One guy told me the next night that he went home and looked at our annual - then he remembered me. I guess that is good?

It was nice seeing folks, especially my two besties! I did get in my exercise, but I am not sure about the nutrition side of the weekend. Time to get back to good nutrition!

Well, made it safely through Dorian with an intact home and no tree damage. My son was not so lucky - a tree clipped the corner of his house. We had to remove a large tree and a bunch of limbs in his yard.

So, how many calories removing tree debris? And, how many for babysitting the grands? I need a glass of wine, a massage, and a nap!

Been off line a few days. Mom turned 80 so we had a girls trip - Mom, me, 3 sisters, sis-in-law.

Since I am close to the beach, we just all stayed at my house and made the hubbie stay in the man cave (not that he complained!). We were just too busy for me to get on line. Probably a good thing - would hate to see the calories ingested. I did get my workouts done along with a lot of extra walking.

We all survived! :)

I'm back! Tired and have a lot to do. Not sure about how my weight is. Not weighing for a few days to let my body recover from travel/lack of sleep/dehydration.

Trip was great except for the 13 hour flight from Doha to JFK. Not 1, but 3 screaming infants. No rest at all!

So frustrating when opportunities fall away. AND so exciting when it can open new doors! Excited to hear what happens from here.

Thanks for the ideas!

We usually do the county fair and have sent for information on 'Hippie Fest'. I have forwarded your list of suggestions in case it triggers any more ideas for our group.

Aww, what a disappointment!

Glad you are already exploring alternatives. There are so many opportunities for the arts here in San Diego, my first connections would be with the city, the library, civic arts organizations, local ethnic festivals, local parades and celebrations, dance festivals, the county fair, local college festivals, school arts organizations, the local Pride festival, other music festivals, and definitely health fairs and fun runs.

Hoping this turns out to be a happy plot twist with wonderful new connections for you.

Well, our troupe's application for the big spring arts festival was rejected (first time in 20 years). This is normally our biggest production. So, we are working on new venues and learning the new choreographies.

Ideas for new venues? Some we came up with were
- Fitness and/or Senior Living Expos where we would discuss the mental and physical benefits of dance (good for exposure and recruiting students)
- 'Pop up' haflas where we would simply meet in the park and dance
- Exploring festivals within 2 hours of our location.

Any others? All suggestions are welcome!

How exciting!

I am not, but I am really enjoying watching friends on Facebook working with their dance challenges this month.

I am delighted for you. Wishing you excellent health and happiness.

Hello!!! So, last year I graduated from grad school and got crazy off-track with pretty much everything I wanted to do, but I'm on track (so far) for 2019, which I plan to make the BEST year!

I'm running the "Run the Year" challenge with a team-mate, where we try to run 2019 miles in the year 2019, and I'm at 46.8 miles so far, so not bad!

This year I re-joined Datura Online and they have a fitness challenge for January that I'm behind on, but I'm enjoying. Is anyone else a member of that site?


Enjoying every single moment I can with my husband and little boy!

Been in the land of no computers (my parents' house in the middle of nowhere).

So - back to tracking and eating real veggies (as opposed to mac and cheese or breaded fried okra).

I appear to be finally over the last of my bronchitis, so no more coughing while/after I dance!

Oh, yes, it is so painful! Moist heat can sometimes help while the meds kick in. Wishing you fast relief, beautiful dancer.

Thank you.

I have not had an ear infection since I was a small child. Now I know why little ones scream when they have one!

SO - joined a Spark Challenge. Immediately got bronchitis and an ear infection.

The tree may stay in the box this year.
