Today it took me 5 tries to get 3 correct. I messed up on how many different kinds of Omega-3's there are (3, trick question) and whether the U.S. led in ice cream consumption in the world (we're beaten out by New Zealand by one pound).

60% for today

I got questions about diabetes today and did well with them. Stubbed my toe on a basic question about whether we can add more calories to our intake if we increase our exercise. I've missed that one before...

So today: 75%
Month: 75%
Total: 67%

Remember, this is a personal challenge to beat your previous month. It is fun to share and encourage each other on. Also, the more we share the more it will stick in our brains.

Monty - The wheat bran and then you put weight germ - is that a way to remember the answer??

1. Large doses of vitamin C can cause diarreah

2. LOVE THIS ONE - According to the Nurse's Health Study - 2-3 hours of brisk walking per week can cut heart disease for women by 30-40%

3. Systolic Blood Pressure - The top number and the pressure created when the heart contracts.


I had gotten the BP one wrong so often. I think I will either do a challenge on it or post a blurb. So important to keep in mind especially as we walk/run. I finally got it to stick by thinking Systolic - S is greater in the alphabet so it tops diastolic. Also S for squeeze or contacting heart muscle.

It’s a new month and I certainly did not start out with a perfect score 3-7 which is 43%.
I missed “To make refined or bleached white flour, What part of the wheat kernel is removed. 1. The wheat Bran . 2. The weight germ.

Individuals who do not absorb Vitamin B-12 properly, might have what condition?
Pernicious Anemia. I guess this is what my dad had , I had to give him a B-12 shot once a month for over 2 years.

How many pounds of Calcium are in the average adult body? 2-3 pounds mostly in the bones and teeth

These are 3 of the 4 I missed, Now if I can just remember these ones.

You're on, Nancy!

Today I got 3 out 4 right -- tripped up over calcium need for youngsters between 19-50. (It's 1000mg...)

I like bicycling and one of the questions was about dehydration. If you're thirsty, you are already dehydrated. Got to pay attention to that when you're biking and keep sipping away at water while riding. emoticon

I did pretty well today, except that the question about dark chocolate having as much caffeine as coffee threw me. Chocolate at night always interferes with my rest so I thought it has to have caffeine in it. It does, but not much. Go figure. I always learn something with those trivia questions.

I got mine right today, but I had to sit for awile and ponder the question about how to strenthen muscles. At first it would be easy to think do more repetions. It is not how many you do (minimum average is 8-10, but the resistance you are using, so less is better. A and C ended up the anser (8-10) and less.

One was a repeat question that I had way back in the beginning got wrong even though I have depression and even a degree in psychology.

Older/Elderly people do not get more depressed as they get older

I love this trivia. And with sharing we learn even more. With potassiun, I tend to go over and that is frustrating, as when I examine what I ate, I would eat it again.

Isn't it nice when guesswork pays off. I guessed on unsweetened cocoa powder having the most healthy concentration of compounds. I knew dark chocolate was better to eat, but guessed on this one.

I Had a junior moment, couldn't be a senior moment I remember why I didn't remember the questions. I had not done today's Got 3 out of 6.The one that stuck with me was "taking time off strength training ,how soon do we start losing strength ? The answer was 2 weeks. I couldn't believe that. My coach at the gym said probably a little less then 2 weeks and the only solution it becomes a life change.

I didn't do too well, 3 wrong before getting 3 right. More questions about osteoarthritis, cholesterol (which I should know since I'm working hard to get mine down!) and I forget the rest. Sheesh, second thing to go is the memory. emoticon

bad day for me two wrong and I know I was just not thinking. One I got wrong was what was considered warm-up. I hit stretching!! wrong - it was both b and c and I can't remember them now.

I also got wrong what the green on a hard boiled egg was from. I only hit from over cooking, but it was also too much iron in the water.

Hope you all do better than I.

I love doing Trivia

emoticon good job all

Laurie - we must get some of the same wrong, that is one I got wrong also earlier this month. How do you like them throwing in the calorie count questions??

Today mine were basically the easy ones - Like using aluminum pans give you ahleimer's disease - which was false.

MNABOY - I have to lock that one in my brain, over 3,000 brands of tea?? Can you imagine??

LOL Monty - you will get your chance another day.

Hi
If I read you right, you are going to enjoy the skin.
It certainly adds to the flavor and I can adjust my 40 calories somewhere else. I got all 3 right, little disappointed as I love the questions.

Did much better today--only took 4 questions to get my 3 right!
The one I got wrong was how many calories you save if you take the skin off turkey--you save 40. (I'll take the 40 calories, crispy turkey skin--yum!!)

Large doses of Vitamin C can cause Diarrhea, which I didn't know and also kidney stones. Excessive meaning over 2000 miligrams. On my Vitamin C bottle with 1 pill being 500 mg says that is 833 % of daily reccomended amount.

Wow, I did horrible today!! The one that really surprised me is "where is most of your seratonin located?" Because I know (or I think I know) that seratonin has to do with depression, I chose the brain--apparently not--it's the gastrointestinal tract!!

Sometimes I'm surprised how much I know the answer to, and sometimes I have to laugh because I have absolutely NO idea of the answer to the question:-) I try to play it every day - I love to get the points (I'm competitive!) and I do learn a lot. I love to get 3 right out of 3 so I get a good %, but I learn more when I get them wrong. And no, I don't have a very good % - the straight-A student in me has a hard time with that - lol!:-)

This is a great idea. One of the things I learned is how little I know and there have been times that I would have liked to discuss the spark answer. Sometimes I was disappointed when I got 3 quick right answers as I really like it when I get more questions, the other night it took 9 questions. Tonight I will keep it in mind as I do it.

I will start this off with one I first got wrong, but now get right.

"Vitamins contain calories"?

Answer = False

One of the ways I stay motivated on Spark is to continue to learn and challenge myself by doing the daily Play Trivia for 3 Spark Points.

So, I thought it might be fun and a personal challenge to each individually to help each other along by discussing questions and answers that we either get wrong , think "WE" were right about the answer and found it was wrong, or a question we thought was plain interesting.

Remember this is meant to be fun and motivating. Don't get hung up on getting wrong answers - this is a great way to learn and continue getting to know one another so we can encourage and support each other along.

Feel free anytime to share a question or answer and discuss here.
