Push-ups:24
Walking:41+41 minutes
Standing with one leg :6 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

Again I tried increasing the number of push-ups by one time for the fourth time to 24 times,
and could keep over-20-time push-ups for the fifth straight day.
I also kept no-smoking for one year and 112 days in a row.
It's been raining rather hard in Nagoya, and I feel that we have more rainy days than usual here.
Weather forecasts say it'll get cold after this rain, so I have to be careful not to catch cold.

Push-ups:23

Standing with one leg :6 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

For the third time, I succeeded in increasing the number of push-ups by one time to 23 times,
and kept over-20-time push-ups for the fourth straight day.
I could keept no-smoking as well for one year and 111 days in a row.
It's got absolutely warm today that I've been long waiting for, and mabybe you all, too.
Sunshine always makes me feel better especially after a wintry-chill season.
Anyway I'm really looking forward to seeing cherry blossoms...they are around the corner.

Again, I increased the number of push-ups by one time to 22 times, and kept over-20-time
push-ups for the third straight day.
I also kept no-smoking for one year and 110 days although I still had a dream last night
in which I was smoking......it's surprising for me.
Anyway it's greatly sunny today just like one of the typical spring days, and surely
the cherry blossom season is steadily coming.
I have to go and enjoy them at the Yamazaki River in Mizuho Ward both during the day and
in the evening.

I tried increasing the number of push-ups by one time to 21 times, and kept over-20-time
push-ups for the second straight day.
I could keep no-smoking for one year and 109 days in a row.
It's cloudy and sometimes sunny in Nagoya now, and it's getting milder and milder.
I've noticed that buds of cherry blossoms actually have become growing on my way to the work place.
Maybe....they will start opening just as flower forecasts were saying....Well, I hope so.

Push-ups:20
Walking:38+38 minutes
Standing with one leg :0 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I managed to resume 20-time push-ups yesterday after a two-day break and hope to continue as
long as possible, increasing the number of them little by little.
I also kept no-smoking for one year and 108 days in a row.
It's greatly sunny today and actually a little warm, so I decided not to wear a pair of winter gloves.
Since flower forecasts are not expected to be changed, I have to start planning to go and enjoy
cherry blossoms in Nagoya as soon as possible.

Push-ups:0

Standing with one leg :0 minutes each

I didn't do push-ups for the second straight day because I couldn't put up with wintry chill.
I could keep no-smoking for one year and 107 days in a row.
It's quite sunny today, but actually a little cold although it's milder than yesterday.
Flower forecasts say cherry blossoms will begin opening on March 30th in Nagoya...but actually,
I'm afraid not....because it's been so cold these several days....I'm really afraid.

Push-ups:0

Cigarettes:0

I didn't do push-ups yesterday simply because it's a little cold and I didn't feel like doing
physical exercises.
I kept no-smoking for one year and 106 days in a row.
I was caught in a little rain on my way to the work place, but actually it's sunny now.
I've noticed that the parts below my eyes are irritating and a little inflamed.
I'm afraid that I may have to go and see a doctor.
