Month 5, Day 141

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 neck (...?) and the outside of my hips from my workout yesterday.  I like being a morning person because I was able to 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 outside.  Then, I stepped outside into the cold sunrise-filled morning in Liberty Lake, WA.  I ran along the Spokane River on the Centennial Trail.  I did a loop and at the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 259.2 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 in a small workout room of the common area.  I found two straps hanging from the ceiling and I did 6 & 2/3 pull ups, and 3 & 1/5 chin ups.  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.  The number of chin ups was low because the straps hanging from the ceiling were far apart.

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 well and I scored 18 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I breathed deeply while I focused on "our fighting negates the one thing we know" and the sensor tracked well.  At the end of the 4 minutes, I finished  with a point count of 38, 20 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,321).  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 17, Word Count = 27,263).  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 = 70). 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 70 BC. It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, in my reflections.

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

Money Management: I was not able to continued reading through Mr Money Mustache's posts in May 2012 (Reading Days = 13).  Nonetheless, it amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a reader.

Reward

Reward time = breakfast of eggs and a banana and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (7 miles, Odometer = 959).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
