Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a restful night's sleep. My upper body and my lower body were not overly sore or tight from all the exercise yesterday which I welcomed. I like being a morning person because I was able to get up and do a meditation and writing 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 chilly but beautiful day in west Seattle as I ran to the track where I was the only one. As I ran my hands were icy cold but I went around twice, my body on autopilot, extending my legs seemingly effortlessly except for my slightly labored breathing form the speed I ran. When I was done at the track, I exited and ran up the slight hill to connect back to the street. By the time I got within a block of the apartment that I was staying at, my hands were very warm as I could feel the blood doing its job. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 218.3 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 14 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 28, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 1910). 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 441, Word Count = 22,201). 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 89, Word Count = 7,830), although I will admit that I wrote this tomorrow. 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
