Month 4, Day 109

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning after a great sleep.  It is good that I am a morning person because I was able to do a meditation and writing 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 waiting for Lisa.  I ran in Colorado Springs, CO on a path through a suburban neighborhood.  The path led to a street that had been expanded beyond Google's knowledge so Lisa and I continued to follow the newly created streets and neighborhoods before turning around and running back to a park.  At the park I did 5 & 1/3 pull ups, and 4 7/8 chin ups using the monkey bars. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.5 miles, Odometer = 194.2 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 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.  An interesting note is that the consecutive push up and dumbbell rows caused a deep burn and general tiredness in my arms.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health

Spiritual Reading: No Faith ND today, it is Saturday.

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 tracked well and I scored  15 points.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where I focused my focus was mild to poor.  The stress eraser tracked ok and at the end the total read 25 points, 10 more for sitting (Point Count = 1588).  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 328, Word Count = 18,055).  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 = 38). 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 38 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 John (words written 350, Word Count = 5,365).  I admit that I actually wrote this on Monday becauses I was traveling and exhausted.  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 eggs.

Journey far,
