Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after yet another night that I deprived myself of sleep up playing cards with family. Luckily, I am a morning person so I was able to lift myself out of bed while no one else was awake and sneak in a meditation before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, gloves, and earmuffs. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks some stretching inside since it was dark and frigid outside. I began to run through the condo area of Big Sky, MT. The temperature were again down around 0 degrees with several feet of snow on the ground and but no morning sunrise in sight. I ran up a hill towards the tree that I had used previously to do pull ups and chin ups. I did 4.5 pull ups, and 2 & 2/3 chin ups. My route allowed me to pass the one mile challenge (1.0 miles, Odometer = 168.7 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the condo I was staying at, I stretched for 2 minutes and continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 20 dumbbell rows (10 each arm, 60 total) using a bundle of firewood as weight, stretch. I also did 3 sets of 10 push-ups (30 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 "Magi travel together" from Matthew 2: 1-12
Meditation: I set my alarm for 4 minutes of walking mediation and 4 minutes of sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice. I used my stress eraser. I had to use a bathroom to have privacy for both walking and sitting because people were starting to wake up in the condo. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) the sensor tracked well and I scored 9 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation. I focused on breathing and at the end the total read 29 points, 20 more for sitting (Point Count = 1137). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I continued writing about"Nomadic Exhaustion" today (words written 305, Word Count = 12,469). 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
