Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health
Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic after a short sleep. I was significantly sore from yesterday's workout when I woke up especially my upper body. Being a morning person I went to the place I have been working near Greenlake and went directly to work putting on my running shoes (my stimulus), running shorts, and arm warmers. I did a warm up routine of 35 jumping jacks and some stretching outside in the cool, morning in Seattle, WA. I took off running and around the lake and was please at the early morning quiet although there were many other people walking or jogging around the lake. At the end of the route, I was able to again pass the one mile challenge (2.9 miles, Odometer = ---.- miles). It amazes me how far I have come from where I started, physically.
Fitness: Back at the apartment 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 16 squats (48 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 walking meditation and 4 minutes sitting meditation as I continued my meditation practice using my stress eraser. I did 4 minutes walking meditation (two, 6 foot sections) where the sensor tracked well and I scored 14 points. During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I opened my eyes a couple times to check the sensor as it tracked poorly at the start and began to track well towards the end. I finished with a point count of 22, 8 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.
