Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a much needed sleep where I really struggled to get out of bed in the morning despite being a morning person. I lay in the warmth of my sleeping bag, the covers were warm, the pad underneath soft, and my legs sore from my workout yesterday. When I was finally able to drag myself out of bed, 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 outside in the another unexpectedly gorgeous morning in west Seattle with a cloud spotted blue sky and a hint of sunshine, rare for the winter. I ran up a big hill and as part of an out and back but when I turned around I felt almost disappointed at how quickly the run was passing by. I ran back to the house at the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 228.1 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 6 & 1/5 pull ups, and 5 & 1/4 chin ups, stretch. I did 3 sets of 26 dumbbell rows (13 each arm, 78 total) using a kitchenaid mixer (without the bowl) as weight, stretch. I also did 3 sets of 14 push-ups (42 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 tracked poorly. Initially I focused on "a voice calling out in the wilderness" but I was drawn back to today's Faith ND. I finished with a point count of 16, just 4 more for sitting (Point Count = 2055) because the stress eraser was hardly tracking at all. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although as today's Faith ND points caught my attention and I can't help but notice the irony of public spirituality.
Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health
Writing: I continued to write "beat down by the winds of change" (words written 535, Word Count = 24,120). 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 Ken (words written 98, Word Count = 8,875). 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
Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and a banana.
