Month 5, Day 129

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a much needed sleep where I slept later than I wanted because I stayed up late than I intended.  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 a west Seattle that had dark clouds overhead surrounded by blue sky and sun, it was the recipe for future rain.  Undeterred by the weather, I ran up a big hill and as part of an out and back and when I turned I was so warm that I took off the arm warmers I was wearing.  I ran back to the house I was staying at and at the end of my route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 230.9 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 5 & 1/5 pull ups, and 6 chin ups, stretch.  I did 3 sets of 28 dumbbell rows (14 each arm, 84 total) using a pair of downhill skis 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.  The interesting note was that my pull ups were done at the end and, thus my arms were more tired, decreasing the number I was able to do, but providing a better workout.

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 very well and I scored 18 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the stress eraser tracked poorly and eventually stopped tracking half way through.  When I opened my eyes, I finished with a point count of 28, 10 more for sitting (Point Count = 2098) but it was clear that the sensor had stopped working.  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I can't help but notice the irony of public spirituality.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I was not able to continue adding to this today (words written ---, Word Count =  24,346), nonetheless, 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 = 58). 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 58 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health

Side Gig: I was not able to continue adding to this today (words written ---, Word Count = 8,875), nonetheless, 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 February 2012 (Reading Days = 10.3).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of oatmeal and a banana and an afternoon bike ride on Vashon Island (21.6 miles, Odometer = 841.6).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
