Month 5, Day 121

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after long, full night's sleep.  When I jumped out of bed, I felt like a morning person, ready to meet the day.  I will admit that my hamstrings were very tight from my workout yesterday, which I was not expecting.  I put 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.  Then I chose to run in a slightly different direction than what I have been doing recently because I was looking for a more functional pull up bar than the one that I have been using recently.  The morning was gorgeous both temperature wise and weather wise.  I ran down a huge hill which I knew that I was going to have to come back up and onward to a park where I did 6 pull ups, and 6 & 1/4 chin ups.  This is the first time that I have ever done more chin ups than pull ups.  I liken to the sliding monkey bars that I used being more appropriate width for chin up than pull ups.  Then I ran back to the apartment, including up the steepest hill I have ever run up.  At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.2 miles, Odometer = 216.7 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 a few minutes while I cooled down before I continued my routine.  I did 3 sets of 26 dumbbell rows (13 each arm, 78 total) using a full duffle bag as weight, stretch.  I also did 3 sets of 13 push-ups (39 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.  During the 4 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) I the sensor tracked well and I scored 12 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser continued to track well while I focused on mental touching points and I finished with a point count of 25, 13 more for sitting (Point Count = 1882).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued to write "beat down by the winds of change" (words written 277, Word Count = 21,760).  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 = 50). 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 50 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 Kate (words written 331, Word Count = 7,741).  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: I continued reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts in July 2011 (Reading Days = 4).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of yogurt and granola and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (18 miles, Odometer = 741).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
