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
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.
