Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a much needed sleep where I woke up very early and despite the appropriate amount of sleep, I felt under-rested. I was not really too sore from my workout yesterday. Because I am a morning person, I set to work 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, I ran through Lincoln park in Spokane, WA on a chilly but sunny morning. I ran down a long hill to the play equipment where I did 6 & 1/2 pull ups, and 5 & 1/3 chin ups. Then I ran back up the steep hill to the end of my route. I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.3 miles, Odometer = 240.2 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the house I was staying at, I stretched for a few minutes while I cooled down before I continued my routine. I did 3 sets of 28 dumbbell rows (14 each arm, 84 total) using a full backpack 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) the sensor tracked very well and I scored 19 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I noticed that when I transition to sitting, I had to coax the sensor to re-calibrate by exaggerating the long exhales. I thought that I had done well and closed my eyes while I focused on breathing. However, at the end of the 4 minutes, the sensor was not tracking well. I still finished with a point count of 30, 11 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,164). 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 continued writing about the "Trans-Siberian Railroad" (words written ---, Word Count = 24,800). 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 onto my side gig writing about Ken (words written ---, Word Count = 9,419). 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
