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
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.
