Month 11, Day 325

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic when I was woken up in the middle of my sleep by the fire alarm.  It was still dark outside and over an hour before I had planned to wake up.  After solving the rogue fire alarm incident, I decided that it was time to quickly knock out my daily exercise.  I was not overly sore from my my workout yesterday.  Because I like being a morning person I put on my running shorts and shoes and went directly into a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and a little stretching.  I took off running in Grand Junction, CO  on the usually busy street.  However there was no one on it on a Saturday morning long before the sun was up.  The only thing on the road other than me was a single biker out for an early morning ride.  I ran to my usual park where I did 6 pull ups, and 6 chin ups.  Then back through the neighborhood on the less busy street where it was just me.  All the way back to my home there was not a single car.  At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.0 miles, Odometer = --.- miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.

Fitness: Back at my home, I stretched for a few minutes and I continued my routine.  I did 3 sets of 18 dumbbell rows (9 each arm, 54 total) using a bocce ball set as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 9 push-ups (27 total).  I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines because I don't need a gym.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health

Spiritual Reading: No Faith ND today, it is Saturday.

Meditation: I set my alarm for 2 minutes walking meditation and 2 minutes sitting meditation as part of my meditation practice using my stress eraser.  During the 2 minutes walking meditation (one, 6 foot section) the sensor tracked poorly and I scored just 2 points.  During the sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and at the end the sensor read 10, 8 more for sitting (Point Count = -,---).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I do note the paradox of public spirituality.
