Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after good night's sleep. My upper body and especially my lower body were tight from all the exercise yesterday. I like being a morning person because I got up and went straight to work 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. It was a clear day in west Seattle but it was brisk. I ran in the early morning streets when most of the town had yet to wake up. The hustle and bustle of the weekend had yet to pick up which was a nice change of pace. When I got to the track, I went around twice and my right hamstring was noticeably tired (as well as my whole body in general) from the increased amount of Fitdesk riding I have added in this week. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 208.1 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the apartment 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 23 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing a gym.
Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health
Spiritual Reading: No Faith ND, it is Saturday.
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 well but needed a reset half way through and I scored 10 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser continued to track well but the interesting development today was that I was noticeably distracted from my tired legs being unhappy to be cross legged. I finished with a point count of 31, 21 more for sitting (Point Count = 1759). 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 291, Word Count = 20,382). 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 272, Word Count = 6,504). 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.
