Thanks to: JennP for telling me about this one


what an opportunity for those in the contesting community who love to cheat!

Posted by: anonymous on January 6, 2017

I agree, it's great to promote fun activity but many will cheat to try and win

Random draw so that's encouraging

Posted by: anonymous on January 6, 2017

except those who cheat will have tons of ballots since they will say that they did every activity and they did not so their chance of winning will be much much higher than someone who does not cheat

The Submit button not working right now to complete your entry registration. I tried to fill out the technical contact us form and that submit button not working either.

Posted by: ginaf on January 6, 2017

I am getting 2 entries...Housework and Walking ..that is all.

Posted by: WandaJeanP on January 7, 2017

I cannot seem to fill out my profile. still techno difficulties it appears.

Posted by: heavenlee on January 7, 2017

Do we get anything for doing the same activity over and over? I do housework everyday.

Posted by: Marina123 on January 7, 2017

Marina I believe so, I just did "Housework" and "Walking" and gained 2 more entries..for a total of 5 entries.At least I will have some entries not 160 like some already do lol

Posted by: WandaJeanP on January 8, 2017

there is no way those people are doing 10 activities every day

Posted by: wishfulthinking on January 8, 2017

oops I did my activity for all week last week because it was my 1st time entering

Posted by: Nicole on January 8, 2017

ahhh, if only it was summer, I'd have so many more entries. Not sure its even worth entering this one...

Posted by: lnelson8 on January 8, 2017

Thanks Wanda Mean. That's great we get credit for the same activities. Some of these are quick and easy. The side reach just takes a minute. :)

Posted by: Marina123 on January 9, 2017

Lol. Sorry Wanda Jean. Stupid auto fill. 🤗

Posted by: Marina123 on January 9, 2017

lol its ok made me laugh

Posted by: WandaJeanP on January 10, 2017

Wow, some of the “leaders” have so many points. The winner better look like a triathlete and be able to crack walnuts with their butt cheeks.

While the people at the top of the leaderboard might be a bit of a stretch for activities, I think most people should be able to get at least a handful every day. For example, this morning I took my baby to swimming lessons (swimming), came home and cleaned up the kitchen and family room while she napped (housework). This afternoon I'll take the dog for a walk (dog walking).. toss a couple handfuls of snow at the dog (snowball fight), and shovel our front walkway (shoveling snow), and walk to the mailbox to pick up the mail (walking). That's what I like about this contest (and Participaction overall) - you don't necessarily have to be an athlete in order to get lots of entries, or to be physically active every day.

Posted by: laurcorbs on January 12, 2017

laurcorbs, I like how you think-I have done the same thing. I walked my dogs up the road(walking, dog walking) onto a trail in the bush(hiking), did housework did the side stretches, and my water is frozen, so I am on reserve and have to bucket flush(weight-lifting). It's not cheating, it makes you aware of how much you are or are not moving, and maybe gets you to do a little extra.

Posted by: kimbilly on January 12, 2017

I see the leader today from NS just got a lawn activity badge. I sws sure there was snow in NS. LOL

Posted by: gardener on January 19, 2017

Ya....I've sent an e-mail asking if they plan to disqualify people who are obviously cheating. That guy in NS would have to have completed an average of 54 activities a day to gain the entries he has. Uh-huh. Do they give extra entries if you manage to play Quidditch? Lol!

Posted by: Sue A. on January 19, 2017

You do get multiple entries for multiple reasons. From the rules:

12. The first activity tracked from the list of 150 will garner 10 entries. This is issued only one time.

13. First time tracking of subsequent unique activities out of the remaining 149 will garner 5 entries per activity, to a program limit of 745.

So it IS possible to get lots of entries like the leaders have, but that's not to say people are being completely honest!

Does going to the Grocery Store and buying apples and oranges qualify as Fruit Picking? lol

Posted by: WandaJeanP on January 22, 2017

Is anyone else having trouble with this site not keep track of your activities? One day I had 79, the next day I only had 29 - and after adding 6 activities, I still had only 29. It's been 29 for the last 5 days, despite my adding activities every day. I emailed them and so far have only got the automated response.

Posted by: suze on January 22, 2017

WandaJeanP like your fruit picking idea lol
suze I can't find certain activities some days not sure why? and on that note my husband was chosen to win Garmin vivofit 3 activity trackers today!

Posted by: Nicole on January 24, 2017

Is anyone else having trouble with this contest tracking your activities? I've done at least 100 but it only shows 29, no matter how many times I enter. Have sent an email, 4 days ago, got an automated reply that they would have a human reply to me within 48 hours. Still waiting.

Posted by: Suze on January 24, 2017

I don't think I'm going to win this contest. But I'm actually feeling a little more energetic and fitter. I even danced for w0 minutes today. 😊 Hope everyone else is getting some benefits too. Go us!

Posted by: Marina123 on January 25, 2017

I'm having trouble too Suze; i have been entering every day and only have 35 entries. Today I did 10 activities and it only went up one number.

Posted by: annie on January 25, 2017

I, too, find some of these leader totals to be a real "STRETCH". Is that considered an activity? ha

Posted by: wildthing58 on January 26, 2017

To those who say their entries aren't going up-are you looking at the activities, not the entries? If you are doing the same activities, it only shows the # of different ones on the left, but it shows your actual entries to the right of that.

Posted by: kimbilly on January 27, 2017

i skim through them and legitamatly am able to do some of them but not everyone,, like i chope wood every day, that is on there , and i snow shoe

Posted by: tomgirl on February 2, 2017

Today it says "Daily limit of activities reached" So I can't enter anything

Posted by: gardener on February 2, 2017

kimbilly is right - I finally got an email from them - only new activities go towards your total; the repeat activities go towards the weekly prizes.

Posted by: suze on February 3, 2017

I think sliiping on ice is prob "1 foot high kick"

Posted by: gardener on February 14, 2017

was one of weekly winner, good luck everyone

Posted by: anonymous on March 7, 2017

Posted by: anonymous on March 22, 2017

i dont' do this every day, but try to do ten, i just walked the grand dog, i picked up sh.... so thats stretching, I threw the ball and frisbie, i ran and was dragged lol, anyway, i miss alot but i do try to scan through and even if i do it later, i can put it in for the next time.. in the winter i would ski, and sled and walk to work daily so you can but i agree lots wont be honest but i try just to focus on the positive thoughts and don't worry about anyone else. have a great weekend...

Posted by: tomgirl on March 31, 2017

i have 51 but i am sure others have more

Posted by: tomgirl on March 31, 2017

so you do have to pay for the shipping for the Vivofit I called to ask (left message)

Posted by: Nicole on April 2, 2017

I have been entering my activities every day from day one and today it says I have no entries and I have not done any activities, everything has been wiped out. As this happened to anyone else?

Posted by: lin13 on April 13, 2017

I couldn't log in today and so I went to register after not being able to 'sign in'. I put my information in, now it started me over at square one and all my previous entries have disappeared.

Posted by: miali1 on April 13, 2017

Can't log in. When I try to reset my password, it says my email address is an invalid value "for path email". Hmmm....hope everyone gets their entries back....or they start absolutely everyone who has entered up until now at zero again. Either way is fair.

Posted by: Sue A. on April 13, 2017

SUE A. I'm getting the same issue. Glad I'm not alone...hopefully will be resolved tomorrow.

Posted by: frizzabella on April 13, 2017

I have none of the problems you guys mentioned =o

Posted by: Parallel on April 14, 2017

wasn't working for me yesterday and working now

Posted by: Nicole on April 14, 2017

Realized that I could add tug-of-war to my few activities; it's one of our dog's favourite pastimes!

Posted by: Lee93 on August 11, 2017

Just notified that I have won a $100 Tim Horton's card. That should put the weight on!
Good point about the tug of war, Just got a new dog and its like that all day at the moment.

Posted by: GL on August 14, 2017

Congrats; nice to see that someone is winning at this!

Posted by: anonymous on August 14, 2017
