Month 4, Day 96

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after I woke up after a great sleep.  Being a morning person let me get going and put on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, earmuffs, and gloves.  I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching outside.  I ran a circle around a few city blocks in Great Falls, MT where the temperature is about 25 degrees warmer than 24 hours ago.  When I walked outside, it almost felt warm... but not really because the temperature was 18 degrees fahrenheit.  Halfway through my run the "warm" air disappeared and I ran for about a half mile in a chilling wind before turning onto another street with no wind.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 177.2 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.  The interesting note today is that I notice that my stomach seems to have loosen the skin around my abdominals as my belly shrinks.  

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 12 squats (33 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 18 lunges (9 each leg, 54 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: 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 "a voice calling out in the wilderness" from Luke 3:4-6

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.  During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (three, 6 foot sections) the sensor died halfway through and I scored 6 points.  I tired to put in a single new battery before sitting meditation because it was all I had.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation I focused on the mental touching points and  and "will you follow me?"  I noticed today that it has been a long time since I have gotten the "warm fuzzies." I finished sitting and the stress eraser was again turned off from low battery.  I checked and I had a total point count of 9, 3 more for sitting (Point Count = 1312).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued writing about "beat down by the winds of change" today (words written 329, Word Count = 14,268).  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 = 25). 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 25 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 Steve (words written 151, Word Count = 1654). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.


Reward time = breakfast of pumpkin muffins and eggs.

Journey far,
