Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after really short night's sleep in which I stayed up too late coding on the back end of Intentionality Ink. My upper body and especially my lower body were tight from all the exercise yesterday. I like being a morning person because I got up and did a meditation before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside. It was a clear day in west Seattle but it was brisk outside as the sun was brightening the day. I ran in an early morning environment that was coming alive as morning rush hour was beginning. When I got to the track, I went around twice and the big development was that it had rained the night before (not a surprise in Seattle) and the morning was cold enough that it had turned the top layer of water on the track to a thin layer of ice. As I ran I noticeably slipped a little bit with each stride and quickly learned why track stars have cleats. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 211.3 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 13 squats (39 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 18 lunges (9 each leg, 54 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 23 “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. During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) I the sensor tracked well and I scored 18 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser continued to track well while I focused on "I was a Christian who was blind holding a child who was not". I finished with a point count of 36, 18 more for sitting (Point Count = 1823). 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" (words written 156, Word Count = 20,894). 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
Side Gig: I continued adding onto my side gig writing about Kate (words written 242, Word Count = 7,006). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business.
Daily Priority #6 - Financial Health
Money Management: Busy with other things, I did not have time today to read MMM.
Reward time = breakfast of yogurt, granola, and banana and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (5.5 miles, Odometer = 703). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.
