Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic as woke up early after a sleep that was preceded by staying up late over at a friend's house. Because I am a morning person, I was able to sneak in a meditation and then put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching outside because I still have my fears from yesterday on my mind and stretching is the best way to prevent injuries. I began to run through the neighborhood in Vancouver, WA. It was not raining but there was the remnants of a recent rain in the air which contributed, along with the cool morning, to me being able to see my breath at times. I finished the circle I was running at an elementary school where I did 4 4/5 pull ups, and 3 chin ups interspersed with 3 sets of 10 push-ups (30 total). My route allowed me to again pass the one mile challenge (1.8 miles, Odometer = 152.9 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the house I was staying at, I stretched for 2 minutes and continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 20 dumbbell rows (10 each arm, 60 total) using a full backpack as weight, stretch. I continue to enjoy my commitment to not using gym machines because I don't need a gym.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
Spiritual Reading: Faith ND
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 very well and I scored 17 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and at the end of the 4 minutes, the stress eraser had tracked very well as I focused on mental "touching points" and at the end it read a total of 35 points, 18 more for sitting (Point Count = 896). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually. This is especially cool considering that when I started I thought the poor sensor tracking was because it was old and broken, not because I had forgotten how to breath.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I really did not want to write today, but I forced myself to continue writing about "Nomadic Exhaustion" (words written 288, Word Count = 9250). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a writer because there is always time to write.
Daily Priority #4 - Emotional Health
