Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
I woke up early this morning to sneak my morning routine after a full night’s sleep. My legs were tight and a bit sore. Nonetheless, I put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts. Being a morning person, I walked outside into the chilly early morning air of Columbia Falls, MT and did a warm up routine of 38 jumping jacks and a bit of stretching. I began to run but I had no idea where I was going other than trying to find a pull up bar or tree branch as a substitute. At my turnaround point, I finally found a tree branch that was too think but would work ok. I did 4 & 1/2 pull ups, and 0 chin ups because the branch was too thick. On the run back I got a little lost and ran a little further than my left knee would have liked. My route allowed me to again pass the one mile challenge (1.8 miles, Odometer = 129.2 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Back at the house I was staying at, I stretched for 2 minutes and continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 8 push-ups (24 total) and 3 sets of 16 dumbbell rows (8 each arm, 48 total) using a full backpack as weight, stretch. I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
Read Faith ND.
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 decently and I scored 8 points. Next, I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation. I sat in the presence of God with no agenda. At the end of the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser had track ok and it read a total of 24 points, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 555). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
