Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic waking up after a full night's sleep. I woke up sore especially in my calves from my workout yesterday. I like being a morning person because I did a meditation session and then got to work putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, and thin knit gloves. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside. When I stepped outside it was windy and overcast in Spokane, WA. I began to run on the western outskirt of Spokane along a busy street at times. Eventually I was able to escape the busy street to a side street where I found a tree branch and was able to do 7 & 1/5 pull ups, and 6 chin ups before running back to my starting point. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (1.5 miles, Odometer = --.- 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. I did 3 sets of 30 dumbbell rows (15 each arm, 90 total) using a full backpack as weight, stretch. I also did 3 sets of 15 push-ups (45 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 for4 minutes walking meditation and 4 minutes sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice using my stress eraser. During the 4 minutes walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) the sensor tracked well and I scored 12 points. During the sitting meditation, I focused on breathing the sensor tracked well even though my thoughts were distracted. I finished with a point count of 30, 18 more for sitting (Point Count = -,---). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, spiritually although I do note the paradox of public spirituality.
