Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a sleep where I woke up rested and sore from yesterday's workout. Being a morning person I did some reading and meditating before putting on my running shoes (my stimulus) and running shorts. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching inside before I stepped outside into the beautiful sunny spring morning. I took off running through a suburban neighborhood on the south hill of Spokane, WA. The run was a solid pace and other than the noise from the cars on the streets, I had a great time with it. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.1 miles, Odometer = ---.- miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the house I was staying 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 4.5 minutes of walking mediation and 4 minutes of sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice using my stress eraser. During the 4.5 minutes of walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) the sensor tracked well at times and poorly at others and I scored 18 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I breathed deeply and the one time I opened my eyes, the sensor was failing to track at all. I finished with a point count of 24, 6 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.
