Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a short sleep. Luckily my internal clock knew when it was time to wake up because I am a morning person. I got out of bed and did 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. I was on autopilot as I ran in west Seattle toward the west Seattle Stadium. I hardly even noticed the drizzle of rain coming down from the sky. What I did notice that my sore lower body from yesterday coupled with my distraction was causing today to feel like I was running slower. When I arrived I was hit with a realization that this was not the place that I could easily accomplish pull ups. I scoured the entire complex as I ran around the track twice. The first time around, I tried a few different overhangs and metal railings, but nothing worked. I frantically assessed the tree branches surround the park but none of them worked either. At the last moment, I noticed a stationary tent/ carport. Sure enough the metal cross beams supported my weight, but as I did 4 & 5/6 pull ups, and 3 & 1/2 chin ups the water from the canopy rushed down and soaked my frontside mid pull up. Then I ran back to the apartment. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 206.5 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 well and I scored 12 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation my thoughts were focused on sitting in the presence of God with no agenda and at the end the total read 31 points, 19 more for sitting (Point Count = 1728). 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 251, Word Count = 20,091). 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 continued adding onto my side gig writing about Kate (words written 279, Word Count = 6,232). 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: 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 (13 miles, Odometer = 674). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
