Month 4, Day 90

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

Inspiration: The Simple Dollar shares 10 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 19). 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 19 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.


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.

Journey far,
