Month 12, Day 338

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic  by waking up early after a night's sleep where I woke up several time thirsty.  I started the day not with my usual excercise, but rather with an early morning meeting.  When I returned home, I didn't notice any major soreness  but my legs when tight from my my workout yesterday.  I like being a morning person and I put on running shorts and shoes then went outside.  I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and some stretching before I took off running in Grand Junction, Colorado.  The morning was already warming up on the sunny summer Friday and I ran to Rocket Park along the very busy street.  At the park, I used my favorite playground bar to do 6 & 1/2 pull ups, and 6 chin ups before returning home.  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 backpack 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: Faith ND

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 well as I focused on each motion: heal-up, lift-ing, move-ing, lower-ing, touch-ing, press-ing, where the "ing" is the end of the motion.  I scored 5 points.  During the sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and actually redirected my discipline and focused on mental touching points.  At the end the sensor read 15, 10 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.


Reward time = breakfast of cereal and a banana and an afternoon of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (16 miles, Odometer = 1114).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
