Month 5, Day 143

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a short night's sleep up late coding for Intentionality Ink.  I woke up not really sore in any area from my workout yesterday.  I like being a morning person because I was able to transition to a new work space and do some more Intentionality Ink coding before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, and running shorts.  I forgot to do a warm up routine of 0 jumping jacks but a little stretching inside.  Then, I stepped outside into the sun filled but cool day in Spokane, WA.  I ran with Lisa through the neighborhood in the south hill doing a loop ending through Lincoln Park.  At Lincoln Park I used a park play structure with a cross bar that was a bit too thick and I did 6 & 2/3 pull ups, and 5 & 7/8 chin ups.  At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (3.8 miles, Odometer = 264.4 miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.

Fitness: Back at the apartment I was working 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 well and I scored 18 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I focused on "gratitude transforms us beyond the pinnacle of secular life -- human flourishing" and at the end of the 4 minutes, I finished  with a point count of 34, 16 more for sitting (Point Count = 2,388).  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 ---, 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 = 72). 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 72 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 yoghurt with oats & chia seeds and a banana and a day of working on my laptop using my fitdesk (14.5 miles, Odometer = 977.5).  It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, as a rider.

Journey far,
