Month 3, Day 85

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic although today was not my favorite day.  I sleep in later than I wanted because I had stayed up with family hours past when I wanted to go to bed.  Being a morning person didn't matter because I didn't have time to do anything before I needed to take my car in to the shop to get it fixed.  When I finally got back to the house, it wasn't until after brunch that I was able to get my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, gloves, and earmuffs on.  I forgot to do a warm up routine and did 0 jumping jacks zero stretching.  Then I began to run through the neighborhood in Great Falls, MT with Lisa.  It was true winter as the temperature was around 15 degree, there was at least a foot of snow on the ground and the frigid but inconsistent wind was only brightened by the shining sun.  At the local park, I could not find a useful pull up bar and had to settle for the cross bar of the swing set.  I did "3.5" pull ups, and "3" chin ups which I put in quotes because my form was poor to go with the poor bar I used.  My route allowed me to again pass the one mile challenge (2.9 miles, Odometer = 164.8 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 real dumbbell 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 very well after an initial reset and I scored 13 points.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where was decent at breathing well and following mental touching points and at the end the total read 33 points, just 20 more for sitting (Point Count = 1031).  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 172, Word Count = 11,282). 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 = 14). 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 14 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.


Reward time = not breakfast since my day was upside down, but rather dinner.... and working on my laptop using my fitdesk (8.5 miles, Odometer = 435.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
