Month 4, Day 107

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning after short but needed sleep.  Despite it being tempting to lay in the warmth of my sleeping bag, I really enjoy being a morning person because I was able to do a meditation and write before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts.  I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside while I waiting for a break in the rain coming down outside.  Finally, I just had to accept that when it is a rainy day in Seattle, I just had to go for it.  I ran in west Seattle the same route that I ran back at the beginning.  It was indeed rainy.  The pavement was flowing with water and rain fell from the sky.  The hill that I ran up was one that took some effort, but it was very apparent how far I have come in the last four months.  On my way back I was running fast trying to out run the ever-increasing rain.  The harder I ran the wetter I got and it was all downhill on the way back.  By the time I was most back I was soaked and I noted that I needed to spit a couple times and a couple more when I stopped running back at the house.  I think this was a different spit from when I was first starting.  This spit was one that affirmed I had run fast today.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 190.5 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 a few minutes while I cooled down before I continued my routine.  I did 5 & 1/3 pull ups, and 5 1/6 chin ups using a pull up bar installed in a doorway of the house.  I did 3 sets of 24 dumbbell rows (12 each arm, 72 total) using a kitchen aid mixer (without the bowl) 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 (two, 6 foot sections) and my stress eraser did not track well I even had to reset it multiple times just to score 4 points.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where I focused on breathing and the phrase "will you follow me?"  The stress eraser again did not track well and at the end the total read 9 points, 5 more for sitting (Point Count = 1524).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued to write "beat down by the winds of change" (words written 198, Word Count = 17,513).  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 = 36). 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 36 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health

Side Gig: I continued adding onto my side gig writing about about Bob (words written 266, Word Count = 5,015).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.


Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and a banana and a morning of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (5 miles, Odometer = 596.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
