Month 3, Day 65

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.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

I wrote more on "the Russian visa debacle" (words written 264, Word Count = 5172). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a write because there is always time to write.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of muffin, hard boil egg & fruit.

Journey far,
