Push-ups:17+17 times
Walking: 66 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

It has been two years and 357 days in a row since I quit smoking.
I could keep two sets of 17-time push-ups for the the fourth straight day and over
one set of them for the eighth successive day.
I did an over 60-minute walking for the first time in a long time and I really
hope to continue this level to prevent low-back pain.
If time permits, I'd like to visit Higashiyama Shokubutsuen tomorrow to enjoy autumn
color of leaves which are being illuminated there for the first time sicne the park
opened, and tomorrow is the last day of the illumination.
But actually I'm afraid I will not have enough time to go there.

Push-ups:17+17 times
Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Two years and 356 days in a row have passed since I gave up smoking.
I kept two sets of 17-time push-ups for the third successive day and also kept over
one set of them for the seventh consecutive day.
It's actually very cold early this morning in Nagoya with the lowest temperature
of 0.7 degrees and I nearly caught a cold.
I may need a very strong will to do jogging-on-the-spot....I have to, but often,
I wouldn't feel like doing it.
Anyway I'll have to do walking first....Everything will start from this.

It's actually cold with the temperatures of around ten degrees besides no sunshine.
Last night I was really going to do a 60-minute walking but very unluckily it began
raining just at a time when I started walking....So, I only did 20 minutes.
Anyway I really hope to do one today....if possible.

It has been two years and 354 days in a row since I kicked smoking.
I increased the number of push-up by 17 times to two sets of 17-time push-ups, and
kept over one set of them for the fifth straight day.
I've noticed that I have not done walking on a daily basis and I'm really afraid
my low back pain will come back.
I am definitely going to do it today....I have to.
I've got a new middle-distance walking plan and I hope to do that as soon as possibe.

Push-ups:17 times
Walking: 60 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Two years and 353 days in a row have passed since I stopped smoking.
I did only one set of 17-time push-up yesterday and I kept over 17-time push-ups
for the fourth successive day.
Actually I felt a little warmer early this morning than usual....but now it's
getting steadily colder and colder.
Weather reports say the highest temperature here will only reach 12 degrees.
Anyway despite cold days I'll have to do walking and plan a middle-distance walking.

Push-ups:17+17+17 times
Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :4+4+4 minutes

I could keep no-smoking for two years and 352 days in a row.
I also could keep three sets of 17-time push-ups for the third consecutive day.
It's been quite cloudy and actually dark in Nagoya just like it's going to start
raining pretty soon.....maybe NOW.
Beyond expectation, I feel it's not so cold, I mean, a little warmer than yesterday.
Anyway I'll really have to be careful, because weather forecasts say it'll get
much colder after today's rain from tomorrow.
