Month 4, Day 111

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a sleep where I slept too long.  It is good that I am a morning person because I was still able to get out of bed early enough to do a meditation 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.  Then, I ran up the steep hill in the west Seattle neighborhood.  Instead of running my usual route, I decided to explore a bit to the west.  I found an abandoned bridge and enjoyed a peaceful neighborhood run instead of running on a busy street.  As I ran, I could see my breath on the beautiful clear day in Seattle, but I think the dew point pulled down the temperature and chilled my exposed hands.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.5 miles, Odometer = 197.7 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 6 (!) pull ups, and 5 chin ups using a pull up bar in the doorway.  I did 3 sets of 24 dumbbell rows (12 each arm, 72 total) using a kitchenaid 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 tracked very poorly and I scored 4 points.  As I walked, my balance was poor.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and reset the sensor right before I began.  It never really got calibrated because I think it was cold and at the end the total read 6 points, just 2 more for sitting (Point Count = 1615).  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 260, Word Count = 18,553).  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 = 40). 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 40 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 383, Word Count = 5,953).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.

Daily Priority #6 - Financial Health

Money Management: I started something new today. I began reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts beginning with April 2011 (Reading Days = 1).


Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and banana and a afternoon of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (8 miles, Odometer = 612.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
