Month 3, Day 83

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

Inspiration: The Simple Dollar shares 10 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 12). 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 12 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.


Reward time = breakfast of cereal.

Journey far,
