Month 4, Day 112

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a solid night of sleep.  Glad to be a morning person, I chose not to meditate first and went straight to 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 headed out into a lightly misting, west Seattle rainy morning.  I ran a new route inspired by the other new route I had run yesterday.  I have to admit that I was reminded of the beauty of running, a slight tweak to a preferred route can add great benefit in variety.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 199.1 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically. 

Fitness: Back at the house I am staying in, I stretched for 2 minutes before continuing my routine.  Yesterday was an upper body day so today was a lower body day.  I did 3 “sets” of each movement.  3 sets of 13 squats (39 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 18 lunges (9 each leg, 54 total), then stretch.  3 sets of 22 “breaths” of planking, stretch.  I can do all of this without needing 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.  During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) I the sensor tracked poorly and I scored 4 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser continued to track really well and, to be honest, I was surprised because my thoughts had again wandered, but my breathing was good.  I scored a total point count of 20, 16 more for sitting (Point Count = 1635).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued writing about "beat down by the winds of change" (words written 256, Word Count = 18,809).  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 = 41). 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 41 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health

Side Gig: I did not have time today to work on my side gig.

Daily Priority #6 - Financial Health

Money Management: I continued reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts today in May 2011 (Reading Days = 1 & 1/3), but ran short on time.  I will try to pick it up again tomorrow.


Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and banana and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (20 miles, Odometer = 633).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
