Push-ups: 33
Walking: 27 minutes
Standing with one leg :9 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

Despite this summer's scorching heat, I managed to resume push-ups from 33 times, up one time
from the previous record.
I kept no-smoking for one year and 234 days in a row.
Anyway I've already been fed up with summer heat....I want some rain and cool weather.
According to weaher reports, there will be no precipitation for at least one week in Nagoya.
I'm afraid that I am about to welcome a typhoon....it must be dangerous thinking.

Push-ups: 0
Walking: 17 minutes

I didn't do push-ups intentionally last night simply because I fet a little fatigue and it's
really hot ...and I felt I needed a break once in a while.
I could keep no-smoking for one year and 233 days in a row.
It's so hot and humid again, and weather forecasts say the highest temperature will be around
34 degrees....like one of the highest days in summer in Nagoya.
I've noticed that Amino-Vital-2000 is rather effective against dehydration and heat stroke.
I bought 5 bottles and I'm wondering if I should drink one of them to protect from today's heat.

I could only do 32-time push-ups yesterday, down 4 times from the previous record maybe due to
a little fatigue in my arms, and kept over-30-time push-ups for the fifth straight day.
I kept no-smoking for one year and 232 days in a row.
Anyway as you know, continuation is strength.
After these scorching days, today, I feel it's a very little milder than yesterday...maybe due
to a little cloudy weather.
Honestly, I want some rain......as soon as possible.

Push-ups: 36

Standing with one leg :9 minutes each

Very happily, I could do 36-time push-ups for the first time in a very long time...maybe over
a few years..., up one time from the previous record and kept over 30-time push-ups for the
fourth straight day.
I also could keep no-smoking for one year and 231 days in a row.
It's too hot and too humid....I feel it may be the hottest day today this summer while riding
a bike on my way to the work place.
I've noticed....that there is no singing of cicadas near my work place today...it's quiet.
Honestly, I feel it a little strage.

Push-ups: 35
Walking: 40 minutes
Standing with one leg :9 minutes each

For the first time in a very very very long time, I did 35-time push-ups yesterday, up one time
from the previous record, and kept over-30-time push-ups for the third straight day.
I could keep no-smoking for one year and 230 days in a row.
It's so hot and humid just like scorching heat that it must be dangerous to go out and do
walking or other physical exercises.
I'm wondering if I should go to a cafe to spend in a cool place with an air conditioner.
Anyway I need a break in many ways.

Push-ups: 34

I tried increasing the number of push-ups by just one time to 34 times, and kept over-30-time
push-ups for the second straiht day.
I also kept no-smoking for one year and 229 days in a row.
Actually it's too hot...and too humid....and honestly I am afraid of this scorching heat.
More than ten people are reportedly said to have died from heat stroke this summer.
I'll really have to be careful about dehydration both during the day and during the night.
Anyway the electric fan I bought last month at a cost of only 1980 yen is really useful and helpful
to tide over this summer heat, I think.

I could resume push-ups from 33 times yesterday, down one time from the previous record.
I also could keep no-smoking for one year and 228 days in a row.
Weather reports say these three days in Nagoyay will be the second hottest days when the highest
temperatures will be around 35 degrees or more, which is almost equal to that of last Thursday...36 degrees.
So, I need some winds...and if possible, I want it to be cloudy.
Anyway, I'll make it a rule not to go out under summer scorching heat...This must be the best way to be safe.
