Month 4, Day 117

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a solid sleep.  I woke up a little later than I would have liked because I was so tired, but it was still plenty early enough to enjoy the quiet of the Sunday morning in Seattle 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 ran in west Seattle toward the west Seattle Stadium.  The morning was cool temperature-wise but gorgeous in terms of sun shine and sparse clouds.  I did notice that my lower body was sore from yesterday.  As I ran my body took a while to continue to warm up and it was most noticeable in my right hamstring which was really tight.  Eventually, on my second lap around the track, my body was fully loose.  I again went to a stationary tent/ carport where I did 5 & 5/6 pull ups, and 4 & 7/8 chin ups.  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 = 209.7 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 13 push-ups (39 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: No Faith ND daily passage today, it is Sunday.  At church I used my homemade journal to ask God how I could become the best version of myself.  I wrote the words "the kingdom is not so much a place but a presence" inspired by Mark 4: 26-34

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 and at the end the total read 28 points, 16 more for sitting (Point Count = 1787).  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 356, Word Count = 20,738).  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 = 46). 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 46 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 260, Word Count = 6,764).  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 eggs, toast, and a banana and an afternoon of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (10.5 miles, Odometer = 697.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
