Month 5, Day 136

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a full night's sleep.  Today, my lower body was mildly tight but not overly sore due to all the exercise yesterday.  I like being a morning person and proved it by setting out putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), running shorts, arm warmers, and thin knit gloves.  I did a warm up routine of 43 jumping jacks and some stretching inside.  I took off running through the suburban neighborhood on the south hill of Spokane, WA on a cold and rainy morning.  I ran a large square route through the rain and wind at for 1/4 of it on a major and busy street.  I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.7 miles, Odometer = 245.2 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.

Fitness: Back at the apartment that I have been working at, 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 15 squats (45 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.  I again focused on the importance of keeping my back knee behind my heal when doing lunges just like a couple days ago.

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.  The trick to getting better tracking was that I warmed up the device before I used it.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I focused on "I was a Christian who was blind holding a child who was not."  At the end of the 4 minutes, the sensor had tracked well and I finished  with a point count of 40, 21 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,208).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I can't help but notice the paradox of public spirituality.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued writing about the "Trans-Siberian Railroad" (words written 313, Word Count = 25,589).  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 = 65). 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 65 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

Daily Priority #5 - Professional Health

Side Gig: I continued adding onto my side gig writing about Ken (words written 329, Word Count = 9,748).  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 was not able to continue reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts in March 2012 (Reading Days = 11.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of yoghurt with chia seeds and oats and a banana and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (16.5 miles, Odometer = 900.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
