Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning after a short but productive sleep. I appreciated being a morning person because I was able to wake up early enough that only one other person was awake. I snuck in a meditation and then I put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, earmuffs, gloves, and yaktrax. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching outside. I ran a circle around a few city blocks in Billings, MT where the temperature was colder than it had been in recent days, but not bad. Halfway through my run I ripped off the ear muffs because they were just too hot, my body had warmed up enough to not need them. I arrived at a park play structure and I did 5 pull ups, and 4 chin ups. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 183 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the apartment I was staying at, I stretched for a few minutes while I cooled down before I continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 24 dumbbell rows (12 each arm, 72 total) using a full backpack as weight, stretch. I also did 3 sets of 12 push-ups (36 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 using my stress eraser. I did 4 minutes of walking meditation (three, 6 foot sections) but my stress eraser was no longer tracking at the end so I scored 5 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where I focused on breathing and at the end the total read 20 points, 15 more for sitting (Point Count = 1424). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I got back on track this morning knocking my writing out first thing by continuing to write about "beat down by the winds of change" today (words written 318, Word Count = 15,750). 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
Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health
Side Gig: I got back on track this morning knocking my writing out first thing by adding onto my side gig writing about Ken (words written 403, Word Count = 3,439). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.
