Have The Technology, So Use It!

Since I will be spending more time doing cardio in the form of walking I figured I needed two things:

1. Something to help to time pass without it becoming mundane.
2. Something I enjoy that will also help keep me happy (kill that cortisol).

So as I type I am converting a movie and some T.V. shows I like and never get to see (because I have to be in bed early) to my Iphone.  I can walk and watch the show on my phone, the screen is an awesome size and the quality is second to none it's awesome.  I can't wait to try it out tonight.

Last night and this morning was my turning point in cutting back on my cardio intensity.  I walked at an easy pace.  It felt good but it felt easy, why does that bug me?  In fact it scares me.  I feel that if it's easy, it's not going to work (somebody slap me now because I know you want too), but I will do as i'm told :-)

Before you all leave comments about the reasoning on how it works I will let you know that I am well aware of the fact that it DOES WORK, and I know how it works but when your almost 7 weeks out your mind plays games and it is this time that you must trust in your coach.  Your coach will be your eyes, your mind even!  Things are a little difficult to judge in relation to yourself at times.  If it was somebody else saying all this I would clearly tell them exactly what JD told me, it's different when it's not you :-)

I am in a better place today because I saw Jon yesterday, because of the changes he made to my cardio and training and because I get a day off tomorrow hee hee....SLEEP yay!

I can already feel my happy hormones kicking in as I blog, it's all good.  Prepping shouldn't be hell, it's not worth it if it is.

Thanks for everyone's awesome love and support, it's gets me through everytime.

Happy Easter.

Lia you soooo need a Mac. I use Mac programs to convert the movies and T.v. shows.
There are PC programs that convert but i'm not to familiar with them, perhaps you could google it.
