How to improve healthy pony
« on: July 06, 2018, 02:51:59 PM »
Some have been involved in healthy pony and some have just learked about. I would like to know what you would like to see in healthy pony? What would get you joining? I am looking to start another round in August, but gauging ideas and interest.

Getting people to post and stay on their goals is my biggest desire for this project. Healthy pony has been a big deal for me, as I have achieved more healthy habits and even crafting goals.

Healthy pony normally lasts theee months intervals, would shorter be better?

Should I do prizes?

All ideas and inputs is welcomed:)

I have really enjoyed healthy pony but I know I totally flaked out for the last couple months. I lost my motivation in May, and June has just been a crazy crazy month of life.

I also enjoy Healthy Pony but I've really struggled staying motivated to post even though I have kept up with my walking (healthy eating, not so much)  I like the idea of a prize/reward for the person who has made the most progress during the Healthy Pony round but know that finances can be tight and it might cost too much to offer a prize/reward every time we do Healthy Pony. That being said if a physical prize couldn't be offered mabye a drawing or something like that could be used instead. :) Also a smaller prize for the person who posted thier daily progress the most might motivate us to post more. These are just some ideas. :)

I always start with joining but end up doing it on my own pace away front the thread because I forget to check in. You know one thing that has helped when I’ve done some personal changes in the past for anything was tknhave like a friend doing it with me. I know the challenges are all about bringing people together to discuss in the topic here, but maybe also include an element of having a partner to make you feel more accountable and keep motivation going? I’m not saying a swap or anything, but having someone to check in with might help.

Oooo like partners in swaps, but your partner has no buying or shipping obligations unless the two of you agree to it.

They can send PM to each other if one has not posted!!! Making new friends. I love this idea.

I should have gotten insight sooner:)

The only problems I've had while doing Healthy Pony were personal. I made goals I couldn't reach and when I started failing I lost motivation a and it was bad timing, which has nothing to do with the actual thing, just with me.

I really like Maddies idea. I think it will help us reach our goals, post, and make new friends and/or strengthen relationships :) Maybe partners could review each other's goals too? And if we are going along the prizes route I volunteer to draw things :)

I like healthy pony because it's nice to see others striving to meet their goals... It's great to see others keep on track and work toward their goals. It helps me keep on track.

The thing that discouraged from joining or participating is when the whole rating 0/5 system came more into play. I tried to ignore it, but it just bothered me other people rating themselves like that. If I write goals, achieving my goals is the true *prize* of healthy pony.

As for a prize:
I think if everyone chipped in $2-4 (only if they wanted)-- we could put together mini packages for ALL participants. Maybe a sticker, or little button, and a positivity note.

(As I write this, this reminds me I need to sell my sticker paper).

I would love to contribute a small button badge. 2018 fall healthy pony. Or something to that effect. In fact, I'd LOVE to do that.

:3 I kinda wanna put together a package for everyone now, lol.

Yeah, I have to say the point thing didn't help me. It just felt like another thing for me to track and do, and when I didn't track, I felt like I didn't have anything to post.

I have a to do list for myself, but it's easy to ignore (outta sight). I need to make it more detailed, and then post it somewhere I can see it and be reminded.

I agree about the rating system also. I think part of the reason I gave up posting was I often had days that were a 0 or 1 and although i was happy to see others posting 4s and 5s. It was very easy to get discouraged. I like banditpony’s idea of prizes for everyone and Maddie’s  Healthy Pony partners. I might be able to pick up some small MLP things like blindbags but I know not everyone collects those.

Sorry about the 0-5 idea. Just trying something new...I do mention things are optional, and mostly gauging points for a possible prize. Sorry that ruined it for so many:(
