Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
I continued with my fitness epic today as I woke up later than I wanted but early enough to still get in my mourning routine late-ish after a great sleep. Glad to be a morning person, I noticed I was pleasantly and lightly sore both my legs and upper body from yesterday. Quickly before my run, I snuck in a meditation session and then I put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts and did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and a bit of stretching. I ran through the streets of Boise, ID as it was still dark out and the morning air was brisk. I also found a pull up bar for tomorrow's run. At the end of my route, I arrived back at the house I was staying at, again passing the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 136.1 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 (one, 8 foot section) the sensor tracked well and I scored 12 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and I focused on the phrase "will you follow me?" I finished with a point count of just 26, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 676). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and a banana.
