Month 4, Day 113

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a solid sleep.  After walking up, I made a note that 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 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.  I was joined by Lisa for what I had every intention of it being a long run.  We ran in the west Seattle downward and through a park with a fine gravel trail that paralleled a small creek.   Eventually the trail kick us out onto the street that we followed as we passed by two parks.  At the second park, I stopped and  did 5 &1/6 pull ups, and 5 chin ups using a park play structure.  Next we ran through a series of trails that was party of a wooded, summer camp.  We run up a steep hill and got a bit lost before as we navigated by various elements of a team building course.  Eventually we found a way to the street and ran a long way down two hills back to the apartment.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (4.2 miles, Odometer = 203.3 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 (two, 6 foot sections) and my stress eraser tracked very well and I scored 20 points.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation and reset the sensor right before I began because it had lots track when I sat down.  it took a while to recalibrate.  My thoughts wandered to all the things I had to do today and at the end the total read 31 points, 11 more for sitting (Point Count = 1666).  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 418, Word Count = 19,226).  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 12 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 42). 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 42 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.  This is two days in a row and a very bad habit to form.

Daily Priority #6 - Financial Health

Money Management: Busy with other things, I did not have time today to read MMM.


Reward time = breakfast of yoghurt and granola and a banana and an afternoon of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (15 miles, Odometer = 648).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
