Push-ups:31
Walking: 57+43 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I tried increasing the number of push-ups by just one time to 31 times, and kept over-25-
time push-ups for the third straight day.
I could keep no-smoking for two years and 54 days in a row.
I did a total of 100-minute walking for the first time in a very long time.
Again, NTT agents are absolutely disgusting and I've been really fed up with their cold calls.
They never fail to make me feel 200% uncomfortable.

Push-ups:30
Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I did 30-time push-ups yesterday, down five times from the previous record, but I kept
over-25-time push-ups for the second straight day.
I also kept no-smoking for two years and 53 days in a row.
It must be unusual that the temperatures in the morning were over 9 degrees.
Actually while riding my bike on my way to the work place, I felt not so cold for the first
time in a very long time.
Recently I have tried decreasing the amount of sake I drink before sleep, and I've noticed
that I feel my body a little lighter....and strangely, I feel a little sleepeier than usual
.....I don't know why.

Push-ups:35
Walking: 45+43 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I successfully resumed push-ups from as many as 35 times after a two-day break, up seven
times from the previous record, and I hope to continue them as long as possible.
I also could keep no-smoking for two years and 52 days in a row.
Actually the wintry cold is rather milder today than usual and the shunsine is springlike.
Happily, weather reports say such a nice weather will continue from today to the weekend,
so the prediction must come true....I really hope so.
I'm planning to start another English practice in the very near future as an experiment
for improving my English speaking skills at k-sun's blog.

I didn't do push-ups yesterday for the second straight day because the wintry cold made me
stop doing them very effectively.^^;;;
I kept no-smoking for two years and 51 days in a row.
According to weather forecasts, the temperatures of the next several days...maybe a week...
will get higher than usual, which makes me feel really relieved.
Actually I've noticed that recently the sunshine is steadily getting springlike.
Flower forecasts for cherry blossoms say the opening day of cherry flowers will be March
25th in Nagoya, which I think is much earlier than last year.
Well, if so, I'll really have to begin planning to enjoy flower viewing....too early?

I didn't do push-ups last night simply because it was too cold.
Although I hope to resume them as soon as possible, actually the temperature at ten o'clock
was 1.3 degrees, so I am NOT sure I can resume them today.
I could keep no-smoking for two years and 50 days in a row.
I am a little bit busy today, so I have to leave here now.

Push-ups:28
Walking: 43+40 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each

I decreased the number of push-ups by as many as three times to 28 times, but I kept over-
25-time push-ups for the third straight day.
I could keep no-smoking for two years and 49 days in a row.
It's very cold and very windy with the highest temperature in the morning of about 3
degrees, so I thought I took a bus but actually I came here to my work place by bike.
Anyway cold calls by NTT agents are absolutely disgusting.
Maybe they don't know that many people recognize that NTT agents are all evil.

I did 31-time push-ups yesterday, down two times from the previous record, but I kept over-
25-time push-ups for the second straight day.
I also kept no-smoking for two years and 48 days in a row.
It's very windy today and luckily it's very easy for me to come to my work place by bike
because I had the strong wind at my back.
Weather officials say it might be snowy tomorrow morning in Nagoya.
Actually it's getting colder and colder, so maybe their prediction will come true.
They also say it'll be the coldest for the next seven days.
I'll really have to careful not to catch a cold.
