Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic as woke up earlier than everyone else after going to sleep earlier than everyone else. Being a morning person allowed me to sneak in a meditation before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, and gloves. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching. Then I began to run through the neighborhood in Vancouver, WA. It was not raining but there was the remnants of a recent rain. Even though I had stretched, within a block of starting my run the bottom, outside of my right foot began to hurt a little. Being terrified of an overuse injury that could derail all of my progress, I immediately made the decision to run the shorter route. I finished the shorter circle I was running at an elementary school and did 4 pull ups, and 3 chin ups. My route allowed me to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 160.9 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 also did 3 sets of 10 push-ups (30 total). 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 well after an initial reset and I scored 10 points. My first few steps I was wobbly and unbalance because I had woken up a short time earlier. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where I got distracted lost in thoughts about writing, but when I caught myself I focused on my breathing and at the end the total read 30 points, just 20 more for sitting (Point Count = 978). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I continued writing about "Nomadic Exhaustion" (words written 296, Word Count = 11,110). 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
Reward time = breakfast of cereal.
