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.
