Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Today I woke very early at a different friend's' house after a great night of sleep. It is only because I have become a morning person that I am able to get up so early and put on my running shoes (my stimulus), running shorts, and arm warmers and go for a run. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching before I ran around the neighborhood. It was really cold and still dark out and the rain poured down on me soaking my clothes. The water from the street quickly soaked my running shoes as well. At the end of my route, I arrived back at house I was staying at again passing the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 116.3 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Back at the apartment, I stretched for 2 minutes and was strapped for time so I did not mean to but I failed at continuing my routine. Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day. I did 0 “sets” of each movement. 0 sets of 0 squats (24 total), then stretch. 0 sets of 0 lunges (0 each leg, 0 total), then stretch. 0 sets of 0 “breaths” of planking, stretch.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
I read the Faith ND daily passage.
I set my alarm for 4 minutes of walking mediation and 4 minutes of sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice. I used my stress eraser. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (three, 8 foot sections) the sensor tracked well but I was really stressed and distracted from not being able to be productive or finish any projects in recent weeks. I scored 2 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and at the end of the 4 minutes, the stress eraser tracking poorly. I totaled 8 points, 6 more for sitting (Point Count = 375). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
I continued writing a chapter entitled "the Russian visa debacle" I did not write very much but I was proud of what I did write (words written 180, Word Count = 4562). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a writer.
