Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a night's sleep that I stayed up late working on a new Intentionality Ink post. When I woke up, my body was a slight bit sore from all the exercise yesterday, especially the outsides of my gluteus maximus. I benefited from being a morning person by being able to finish out my work on the I.I. blog post and then transition to 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 along the Spokane River on the Centennial Trail near Liberty Lake, WA. I ran a loop in the sunny and clear day, but I could see my breath and the sun had not yet melted the frost off the grass and bushes for the day. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 257.8 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 20 lunges (10 each leg, 60 total), then stretch. 3 sets of 25 “breaths” of planking, stretch. I can do all of this without needing 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 poorly, my blance was poor but quickly improved and I scored 7 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I reset the stress eraser and then closed my eyes and deepened my breathing, not waiting to see if it would calibrate. I reflected on the phrase "about the third hour" and at the end of the 4 minutes, the sensor had never calibrated. I finished with a point count of 7, 0 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,283). 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 569, Word Count = 27,246). 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 Steve (words written ---, Word Count = 10,774). 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
