Month 13, Day 365

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning I woke up well rested after an excellent night's sleep.  It was an amazing day because it has been an entire year since the day I made the choice to start prioritizing my daily habits.  I can honestly say I have waiting for this post for a long time.  Interestingly enough, it still feels like I am just at the beginning of something.  There is lots of room to get better and I intend to.

I was not really overly sore from exercising yesterday.  I like being a morning person and I got up and put on running shorts and shoes.  I did a warm up routine of 25 jumping jacks some stretching outside before I took off running in Grand Junction, Colorado.  The morning was definitely an autumn morning.  There were leaves on the ground from fall temperatures and the sun peaked through the trees. I ran my usual route along the busy road to Rocket Park where I used my favorite metal bar on the play structure to do 7 & 1/8 pull ups, and 7 & 1/4 chin ups before continuing the run.  As I ran back on the mellow street my effort was not difficult, as my body moved towards 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 the start, I stretched for a few minutes and I continued my routine of body weight training.  I did 3 sets of 20 dumbbell rows (10 each arm, 60 total) using a bocce ball set as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 10 push-ups (10 total).  It is fun to be able to add an extra rep to everything today as I am getting stronger.  I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines because I don't need a gym.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
