Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic waking up after a full night's sleep especially considering that I went to bed very early because I was exhausted. I may have been a little sore from my workout yesterday. I like being a morning person because I attended sunrise Easter service before I got to work putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), arm warmers, running shorts, thin knit gloves, and earmuffs. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside. When I stepped outside it was still a rainy, cold and dark morning in Spokane, WA. I began to run on the south hill of Spokane. It was a good thing that I wore my earmuffs and thin knit gloves because the air was still cold in the early morning. I ran to Thornton Murphy Park where I used the same play structure that I have been using recently and was able to do 6 & 1/2 pull ups, and 5 & 7/8 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 (1.7 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
Meditation: I set my alarm for 4 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 16 points. During the sitting meditation, the sensor tracked well and I finished with a point count of 30, 14 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.
Reward time = breakfast of a cereal with oats and a banana. I will also admit that I actually wrote this entry on March 29th. I did not have wifi in the evening when I was planning to make this happen. I could have made it happen in the morning but I was reading instead.
