Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a full night's sleep. When I woke up, my body was a slight bit sore in my shoulders and gluteus maximus from all the exercise yesterday. I again benefited from being a morning person by do a morning meditation and then put on my running shoes (my stimulus), running shorts, and arm warmers. 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 the wind was blowing causing my exposed ear and hands to be chilled in the early morning. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.4 miles, Odometer = 260.6 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 well, my balance was good and I scored 14 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, the sensor continued to track well and my breathing was deep and relaxing. At the end of the 4 minutes, I finished with a point count of 33, 17 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,354). 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 was not able to continue writing about the "Trans-Siberian Railroad" (words written ---, Word Count = 27,263). Nonetheless, 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
