Month 4, Day 116

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

Inspiration: The Simple Dollar shares 10 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 45). 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 45 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

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.


Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (13 miles, Odometer = 687).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
