Month 5, Day 138

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a night's sleep that was full but I did stay up late hangs out with friends.  When I woke up, my body was not nearly as sore as I expected because of all the exercise yesterday.  I once again benefited from being a morning person by being able to transition quickly through a morning meditation and then putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), running shorts, arm warmers, and thin knit gloves.  I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside before I took off running through the downtown area towards Washington State campus in Spokane, WA.  I ran an out and back loop with a big circle at the end of the route.  I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.9 miles, Odometer = 254.5 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.

Daily Priority #2 - Spiritual Health

Spiritual Reading: No Faith ND daily passage today, it is Sunday.  At church I used my homemade journal to ask God how I could become the best version of myself.  I wrote the words "oh my God, my God" inspired by Luke 9: 28-36

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 well and I scored 18 points while focusing on breathing.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I reflected on the phrase "Magi travel together" and at the end of the 4 minutes, the sensor had tracked well and I finished  with a point count of 32, 14 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,258).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I do note the paradox of public spirituality.

Daily Priority #3 - Intellectual Health

Writing: I continued writing about the "Trans-Siberian Railroad" (words written 260, Word Count = 26,126).  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 12 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 67). 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 67 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 435, Word Count = 10,529) although I will admit that I actually typed this tomorrow.  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 finished reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts in March 2012 (Reading Days = 12).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of banana walnut pancakes & eggs and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (13.5 miles, Odometer = 927).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
