Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic as I slept in again today a bit after a night sleep where I deprived myself of a couple hours by staying up late. Glad to be a morning person, 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 up a hill at the foothills near Boise, ID on a drizzly Saturday morning. There was even a point where I was able to get off the road and run on muddy trails above the city that Google maps doesn't know about. At the end of my route, I arrived back at the house I was staying at, again passing the one mile challenge (2.0 miles, Odometer = 145.0 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: 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. I can do all of this without needing a gym.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
Spiritual Reading: No Faith ND, it is Saturday.
Meditation: 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 15 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and I focused on mental touching points and breathing deeply. I finished with a point count of just 36, 21 more for sitting (Point Count = 747). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
