Month 12, Day 343

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning I woke up fully rested after an amazing and long overdue sleep.  I was sore in my arms from my workout yesterday.  I like being a morning person and after putting on my running shoes and shorts, I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks and some stretching before jogging off into the cool summer morning in Grand Junction, Colorado.  I ran along the busy street and there were cars but the thinned as I got further away from my starting point.  When I got to the park, I turned toward the less busy street and it was just as busy there which was annoying but was a product of the hour that I chose to be out running.  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 from the run, I stretched for 2 minutes and continued my routine.  Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day.  I did 3 “sets” of each movement.  3 sets of 13 squats (39 total) upping by one today, then stretch. 3 sets of 18 lunges (9 each leg, 54 total), then stretch.  3 sets of 17 “breaths” of planking also upping by 1 second, stretch.  I can do all of this without needing 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 very well as I focused on each motion and I scored 10 points.  During the sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and at the end the sensor again tracked very well.  At the end, it read 19, 9 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

Reward time = breakfast of eggs and sausage and a little time in the afternoon working on my laptop using my fitdesk (2 miles, Odometer = 1141).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
