Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
I woke up in the middle of the night after a short sleep in order to catch an early morning flight from Kalipell, MT to Seattle, WA. Unfortunately, I did not get up early enough to fit in a morning routine before the flight. Again, I was going to have to be creative with how I was going to find time for my daily personal development routine. In the late morning, I found time to put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts and go for a run in near Seattle, WA. Even though being a morning person had nothing to do with the afternoon run, I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and a bit of stretching. I ran up a very steep hill that I have run up many times in the last couple months. I turned around at a local school noting that I would be able to use it for a pull up bar tomorrow. My lower body days seem to have become days to scout out pull up bars. At the end of my route, I arrived back at the house I was staying at, again passing the one mile challenge (1.3 miles, Odometer = 130.5 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Back at the house, I stretched for 2 minutes before continuing 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 10 squats (30 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 lunges (8 each leg, 48 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 20 “breaths” of planking, stretch.
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 (two, 8 foot sections) the sensor tracked well and I scored 10 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and my leg spasmed while meditating but I remained focused and finished with a point count of just 13 because the sensor had stopped tracking, 3 more for sitting (Point Count = 568). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Reward time = no breakfast today as a reward like usual, but I did feel really good about sneaking in the routine in the afternoon.
