Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a short sleep in which I was up working on PDF formating. My lower body, especially my calves, were a bit more tight than anywhere on my upper body from all the exercise yesterday. I like being a morning person because I was able to get up and do 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. Then, as if my my morning run was on autopilot from there. I was running as the gorgeous morning sunrise was burning through the thick morning fog in west Seattle. I ran to the track where I went around the track twice, my on complete autopilot. When I was done at the track, I exited and ran up the slight hill to connect back to the street, when, sure enough, my hands became rosey warm and I was sweating. At the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.6 miles, Odometer = 226.7 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 14 squats (42 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 18 lunges (9 each leg, 54 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 24 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing a gym. The interesting note was that when I was doing lunges, focusing on a set point about 15 feet in front of me helped with my balance and form.
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 16 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser continued to track well while I focused on "our fighting negates the one thing we know." I finished with a point count of 36, 20 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,039). 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 229, Word Count = 23,585). 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 144, Word Count = 8,777). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started on my project because never too late to start a business, although I will admit that I ran out of time today and had to do this tomorrow.
Daily Priority #6 - Financial Health
