Hello, Sparkpeople LJers! I'm LOVMELOVMYCATS on SP, same as here. I love the fitness and nutrition trackers, I'm addicted to sparkpoints, :) and I enjoy the social networking. I just sometimes struggle with making sure that my sparkpoints are coming from doing valuable things with my time, and not too much sitting on my ass wasting time on the computer. It's too tempting to sit and read the max articles and post the max messages to the boards, simply for points. :/ I do try not to post basically points-spam to the boards, I try to contribute something of worth. I'm sure there's a healthy balance, though.

Welcome!

I share the sparkpoint addiction. It's what keeps me logging my cardio, exercise and (mostsome of the time) food.

And you are so right about having to be carefull not to hang around the computer trying to get points! But I think it has this advantage: After spending a lot of time reading about exercising and health on sparkpeople I'm usually a lot more motivated to work out.

I remember reading a suggestion that comments on sparkpages should get points, too. sounds good at first, until you consider having 20 comments along the lines of "Hi ur doing great" ony our sparkpage from people who most likely don't care about you at all.

What sort of exercises/cardio do you usually do?
