Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a short night's sleep where I deprived myself by staying up to late building a website. When I did wake up, it was later than I had hoped but, being a morning person, I set to work on my routine. My hamstrings were pleasantly tight and sore from my workout yesterday. 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 ran to the park that had my functional pull up bar. The morning was overcast but dry and the air cold enough to chill my hands in the early going. 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 & 1/2 pull ups, and 6 & 1/3 chin ups. Then I ran back to the apartment, including up the steepest hill at the end complete with really sore and tired leg muscles. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.2 miles, Odometer = 220.5 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: No Faith ND, it is Saturday.
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 struggled with the transition of walking to sitting and took a while to calibrate in a way that was counting my breathings as quality. Add this to my distracted thoughts about biking to the grocery store (oddly enough) and I finished with a point count of 26, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 1936). 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 491, Word Count = 22,692) although, I will admit that I wrote this tomorrow. 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 170, Word Count = 8,000). 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 September 2011 (Reading Days = 6). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader. An interesting note, is that I wondered today if this pace of reading is sustainable... It takes a long time to read and digest so much content, although I really want to get through the whole thing by April. Time will tell.
