Oh, I'm sorry the Mall Walking thread is in the Introduce Yourself Forum. I guess, because it would stand out, or something.

Well, I've lost 5 lbs since I restarted here on SparkPeople. So that's good! I'm happy with things as they're going. How is everyone enjoying their Spring? I love love love the sunny days we're having, but don't like the rain so much. The rainy days are colder. It gets chilly. I hope you're all staying warm and keeping busy. emoticon

I'm still sticking to the 2 hours a day. It didn't make a difference the last weigh-in day, though. I stayed the same, so that was a disappointment.

I have been really sick, but still working out. It's super difficult! And now that I'm the leader of the team, I worry because I can't really focus very long at anything. I wanted to set up some walking meetings at malls, monthly. But I haven't felt well.

Working out 2 hours a day is really hard!

This month I thought I would do 90 minutes of fitness a day, but I ended up taking two days off. I was so worn out and sore. But I feel like I really want that award you get for getting 2500 fitness minutes in a month. So I'm making up for the time I lost by working out an extra 30 minutes a day, for 6 days. Then I'll be caught up!

What else do I do to relax?

I hypnotize myself by saying to myself, "I am calm." I got the idea from Michael Stipe of R.E.M., who said in an interview once that he hypnotizes himself. So I read about this a little bit, and starting doing it too. And it really works!

I also do this deep breathing exercise where I say, "I am," when I am breathing in, and I say "relaxed" when I'm breathing out. And you just try for longer and longer breaths. This really helps get the oxygen flowing and is very calming. I made up both of these by the way, if you want to know the source of them.

I also used to really like to hear classical music to relax. I found out how it is better than rock music for your heart, most classical songs. But I don't really feel well lately, I don't like to hear a lot of sounds. I usually wear ear plugs because of migraines. If you can listen to music, you might try classical. But also, I hear there is something special about having a favorite album and listening to it a lot, it can help you really let go after a while.

And those are my thoughts! A little musical... emoticon

Alright, I'll go first. I really used to love to hear Sting's music when I was in high school, I had a major crush on him. I also very much enjoyed U2's music, as well as R.E.M. and Paul Simon. Music was a big deal to me. Things were hard for me in school, I was expected to work at a level that was above where I belonged. So my grades were very poor, and I was in trouble for three years. After three years of being constantly grounded, I escaped to a new school and made all new friends. The strange thing was that I ended up needing to do half days at the first school because they had an economics course that I had to have to graduate. My new school were trying to do some weird History/Economics course involving reading this really hard book and writing essays about economics in early American history. That was too hard for me, I saw in the first week, and I was able to do the half days. Anyway, long story short, I really loved listening to music back then. It has soothing properties. If I wasn't listening to my faves, I was listening to folk music at the downtown library, or something from my mother's collection. I love music!

Hey, I wanted to share my favorite new song with everyone. It's The Miracle (of Joey Ramone), by U2, the acoustic version. Bono is singing and clapping, and the Edge is doing backup vocals and playing the guitar. It's great! The song's about someone Bono looked up to when he was young. "I heard a song that made some sense out of the world."

Did you look up to anyone when you were young?

Hey, this is going to be our chat room! emoticon

I don't know why it didn't catch on before, it probably wasn't made a sticky topic. That puts it permanently to the top of the topics list. emoticon

Anyway, what's going on with people? emoticon

Myself, I am finding it difficult to workout as much as I said I would this month. But I am pressing on, and each day it is getting a little easier! emoticon

I need to work on my sleep emoticon and my water intake emoticon
