Month 7, Day 197

Daily Priority #1 - Physical Health

Exercise: I continued with my fitness epic waking up early after a short sleep.  I was reasonably sore from yesterday's workout.  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 it was simultaneously good to be outside doing it and challenging because I was tired.  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 ok and I scored 12 points.  During the 4 minutes of sitting meditation, I was interrupted by a phone call towards the end.  I finished with a point count of 25, 13 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

Reward time = breakfast of pancakes although I will admit that I actually wrote this tomorrow.

Journey far,
