Push-ups: 12+12+12 times
Walking: 61 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

I kept no-smoking for two years and 266 days in a row.
I did over-10-time push-ups for the eighth straight day and kept three sets of twelve
time push-ups for the second consecutive day.
I managed to do over-60-minute walking for the first time in a very very very long time.
I really hope to continute this level of walking as long as possible as part of
preparation for a four-hour walking this autumn.
I'll have to begin planning a new route of that walking.....
Anyway summer heat should end at all events.
Sadly enough, tomorrow's predicted highest temperature in Nagoya will be 35 degrees.

Push-ups: 12+12+12 times
Walking: 50 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 265 days in a row.
I tried increasing the number of push-ups just one time each to a total of 36 times or
three sets of twelve time-push-ups, and kept over-10-time push-ups for the seventh
consecutive day.
The typhoon #15 is reportedly coming to Honshu little by little and weather forecasts
this morning say it will change into an extratropical cyclone soon...I really hope so.
This summer I've heard about localized torrential downpours in many parts of Japan, but
actually in Nagoya, I feel the precipitaiton has been much less than usual.....maybe.
Anyway I should not let down my guard agaist scorching heat and heavy rain.

Push-ups: 11+11+11 times
Walking: 55 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Two years and 264 days in a row have passed since I quit smoking.
I did over-50-mimute walking for the first time in a week.
I could keep over-10-time push-ups for the sixth straight day including the two
consecutive days of three sets of eleven-time push-ups.
I might have caught a little cold this early morning because I've had a sore throat.
Actually this moring was cold, I think.
Anyway a thypoon is coming and it's likely to land in Honshu, so I'll really be careful.

Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

It has been two years and 263 days in a row since I gave up smoking.
I tried increasing the number of push-ups by just one time each to a total of 33 times
or three sets of eleven times, and kept over-10-time push-ups for the fifth straight day.
Actually I've felt it's a little cold early morning for the past three days with the
lowest temperatures of around 22 degrees....
I must have been careful not to catch a cold, but actually I've worn only summer pajamas.
Anyway during the day, I'll still have to be careful about dehydration due to persistent
summer heat with temperatures of around 33 degrees in Nagoya.

Push-ups: 10+10+10 times
Walking: a total of 20 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0

I kept no-smoking for two years and 262 days in a row.
I also kept three sets of 10-time push-ups for the second straight day and over-10-time
push-ups for the fourth consecutive day.
It's beautifully sunny today and it's not so muggy in Nagoya since it's drier than usual.
This means.....maybe.....autumnal weather is steadily coming?
Come to think of it, I've noticed that the elevated walkway I use on my way to the work
place has begun being completely covered with shadow at around eleven a.m..
Let's have a little more patience before autumn.

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 261 days in a row.
I again tried increasing the number of push ups to a total of 30 times or three sets of
10-time push-ups and kept over-10-time push-ups for the third consecutive day.
After a little heavy rain, very happily, I actually feel it's cool today with the lowest
temperature of 21 degrees this morning and with the predicted highest temperature of 28
degrees.
I really hope such a weather will continue as long as possible.
I've decided to buy over-the-counter drug for athlete's foot instead of going to see
a doctor because it takes too long and it costs almost the same.

Push-ups: 10+5 times
Walking: 41 minutes
Standing with one leg :10+10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

It has been two years and 260 days in a row since I kicked smoking.
I tried increasing the number of push-ups by five times to a total of 15 times although
I felt it very hard for me to do them.
It's been raining since early this morning in Nagoya and the highest temperature
will be below 28 degrees for the first time in a very very long time.
Weather forecasts say the highest temperature tomorrow will be around 34 degrees again.
I've been shocked......I have to continue to guard against summmer heat.
