Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic today as I struggled to wake up because I had been up late the night before,with my mind racing. I had slept well enough, but despite being a morning person I woke up at about the same time as other people in the apartment I was staying in. I was still able to sneak in a meditation before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, and earmuffs. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching. I ran a circle around a few city blocks in Billings, MT where there was still a significant amount of snow on the ground although the thick ice on some parts of the sidewalks and roads revealed it had been a while since the last snowfall. I scouted out the local park where I will do pull ups tomorrow. At the end of my route allowed me to pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 169.9 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 11 squats (33 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 16 lunges (8 each leg, 48 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 20 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing 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. Because I woke up at the same time as other the other people around, I used the bathroom for private meditation. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) the sensor tracked well and I scored 15 points. I had to reset the sensor 3 times before it tracked during the 4 minutes of sitting meditation and I finished with a point count of 23, 8 more for sitting (Point Count = 1160). 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 277, Word Count = 12,746). 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
Reward time = breakfast of french toast and banana and a morning of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (5.5 miles, Odometer = 451.5). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
