Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic another night that I deprived myself of sleep, this time up working on a side gig project. Luckily, I am a morning person so I was able roll out of bed 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 outside in the cold, winter early morning of Billings, MT. I began to run through the neighborhood where temperatures were in the low double digits and dull, black ice covered half the sidewalks and roads. I ran to a park where I did 4.5 pull ups, and 3 chin ups. My route allowed me to pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 171.1 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically. The big difference today was that I felt like I wanted to keep running and running forever. It was bliss cut short by things to do.
Fitness: Back at the apartment 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 full backpack 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: 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. I used my stress eraser. Although others were awake in the apartment, I was bold and snuck in my mediation right in the living room in front of the couch. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) the sensor tracked well and I scored 15 points. I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation. I focused on breathing and at the end the total read 30 points, 15 more for sitting (Point Count = 1190). 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 216, Word Count = 12,942). 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
Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health
Reward time = breakfast of yoghurt & granola & banana and a morning working on my laptop using my fitdesk (9 miles, Odometer = 460.5). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
