Month 5, Day 139

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a full and restful sleep.  I woke up a bit sore in my hips from a combination of my sleeping situation and my workout yesterday.  I like being a morning person because after some meditation, I set to work putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, and a pair of thin knit gloves.  I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside.  Then stepped outside into a cold day in Spokane, WA.  I ran to the downtown area towards Washington State campus in Spokane, WA where I did 3 & 1/2 pull ups, and 6 & 7/8 chin ups.  The reason for the lack of pull ups was because I tried using a concrete overhang before I found the tree for chin ups.  When I tried pull ups a second time after so many chin up, my arms had noting left in them.  Then I ran back to the start of the route.  I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.9 miles, Odometer = 256.4 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 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 ok although my balance was poor at the start but got better as I focused on each movement and I scored 9 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I breathed deeply while I focused on "will you follow me?"  I was distracted midway through but refocused and at the end of the 4 minutes, I finished  with a point count of 18, 10 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,276).  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 551, Word Count = 26,677).  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 = 68). 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 68 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 245, Word Count = 10,774).  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 April 2012 (Reading Days = 12.5).  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 a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (11.5 miles, Odometer = 938.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
