Check out my biorhythm for today...

What's a Biorhythm?
Biorhythm charts illustrate the principle that we are influenced by physical, emotional, and intellectual cycles. Many people report that they can improve the quality of their lives by monitoring the highs and lows of these cycles and acting accordingly. For example, you might try to schedule important exams during your intellectual highs, avoid talking to your significant other during your emotional lows, or arranging the lineup of your baseball team around their physical highs.

These biorhythm charts depict a range of days centered on the target day. The numbers -14, -7, +7, and +14 across the top mark dates ranging from the past to the future. The numbers from +100% (maximum) to -100% (minimum) indicate where the rhythms are on a particular day. In general, a rhythm at 0% is thought to have no real impact on your life, whereas a rhythm at +100% (a high) would give you an edge in that area, and a rhythm at -100% (a low) would make life more difficult in that area. There is no particular meaning to a day on which your rhythms are all high or all low, except the obvious benefits or hindrances that these rare extremes are thought to have on your life.

The three primary biorhythm cycles are:

Emotional: This cycle tracks the stability and positive energy of your psyche and outlook on life, as well as your capacity to empathize with and build rapport with other people.

Intellectual: This cycle tracks your verbal, mathematical, symbolic, and creative abilities, as well as your capacity to apply reason and analysis to the world around you.

Physical: This cycle tracks your strength, health, and raw physical vitality.

The three secondary cycles that derive from the primaries are:

Mastery: This is the composite of the Intellectual and Physical cycles. Mastery encompasses your ability to succeed at tasks and to obtain what you desire. This cycle also tracks athletic ability and the focus required to learn physical skills.

Passion: This is the composite of the Physical and Emotional cycles. Passion encompasses your motivation to act, and the drive that allows you to continue a difficult pursuit. This cycle also tracks sexuality in its purest form.

Wisdom: This is the composite of the Emotional and Intellectual cycles. Wisdom encompasses your understanding of the world, your role in it, and the things that are truly important to your life. This cycle also tracks the presence of mind that you need to make crucial decisions.

I decided to straighten my hair instead of do my morning routine today. What a sacrifice for beauty... haha. There's always after work. I just can not let myself slip into the "not-working-out-just-because" phase.

I'm still trying to get used to this new posting style. It seems to take a bit more work than before.

Going to the dentist today for my semi-annual cleaning. What fun.

5:30pm: Cascadian Farm's Maple Brown Sugar Granola

6:30pm: turkey taco salad (1 shell with the usual)

After dinner I did Tempo 2 - 8 reps modified for lower body focus (minus Arms, Torso Twist and Lawnmowers). It was a great little workout. I feel much better now.

Watching more episodes of Twin Peaks. This show gets stranger by the minute.

Shannon and Sean are in town from New Mexico and stopped by for a visit. We spent a few hours talking and catching up on life. I really miss them!

10:45pm: lite popcorn with chocolate chips

Water: 2 liters

Agh... missed body brushing again!
