Month 5, Day 142

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

Inspiration: The Simple Dollar shares 10 Pieces Of Inspiration (Inspiration Shared = 71). 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 71 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 not able to continue 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 day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (4 miles, Odometer = 963).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
