Month 3, Day 79

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

Inspiration: The Simple Dollar shares 10 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 8). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, inspirationally.

Contemplation: I reflected on past Reminiscinable Shared Experiences (RSEs) when I wrote 8 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.


Reward time = breakfast of cereal and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (15 miles, Odometer = 427).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
