Month 4, Day 99

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic this morning after a good sleep.  I appreciated being a morning person that let me wake early enough that only one other person was awake.  I snuck in a meditation and then I 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 Billings, MT where the temperature was warm(!), it had to have been at least 32 degrees fahrenheit which I found odd but it was noticeable.  Halfway through my run, I went to a park play structure and I did 5 pull ups, and 4 & 1/2 chin ups.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.2 miles, Odometer = 180.7 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.

Fitness: Back at the apartment I was staying at, I stretched for 2 minutes and continued my routine.  I did 3 sets of 22 dumbbell rows (11 each arm, 66 total) using a full backpack as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 11 push-ups (33 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 using my stress eraser. I did 4 minutes of walking meditation (three, 6 foot sections) and I scored 16 points.  I did 4 minutes of sitting meditation where I focused on "a voice calling out in the wilderness."  Interestingly the mental imagery of being in a spiritual wilderness coupled with acceptance of God's presence creating a long lost but subtle feeling of "warm fuzzies."  At the end the total read 33 points, 17 more for sitting (Point Count = 1376).  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 240, Word Count = 15,070).  Interestingly enough, I procrastinated this until the afternoon and when I finally put my head down to write it, it flowed effortlessly.  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 = 28). 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 28 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 John (words written 307, Word Count = 2652).  Interestingly, I procrastinated this until the afternoon too and when I finally put my head down to write it, it flowed effortlessly. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of yoghurt, granola, and a banana and a morning of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (15 miles, Odometer = 541).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,

Joe
