Push-ups:14 times
Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :10 minutes

It has been three years and twenty-three days in a row since I quit smoking.
I did one set of fourteen-time push-ups and kept over one set of ten-time push-ups
for the fourteenth successive day.
I feel the wintry cold today is much milder than yesterday although it's indeed cold.
If I remember right, this time of year had been very cold the past several years.
Weather forecasts say the highest temperature of tomorrow will be 11 degrees in Nagoya
and 14 degrees in Tokyo.....Unbelievable.
I really hope the weather prediction will be right.

Three years and twenty-two days in a row have passed since I stopped smoking.
I kept one set of fourteen-time push-ups for the third straight day and over ten-
time push-ups for the thirteenth consecutive day.
Actually it's so cold this morning with the lowest temperature of minus one degree.
I know that people in the Sea of Japan regions say minus one degree is nothing,
but actually it's deadly cold for me.....honestly not deadly but severely.^^;
Anyway I would like to spend my second holiday of six consecutive holidays learning
more about how to use Outlook.

I could keep no-smoking for three years and twenty-one days in a row.
I decreased the number of push-ups to one set of fourteen times but keep over one
set of 10-time push-ups for the twelfth consecutive day.
After snowing, it's pretty sunny today.
Although the temperatures are ones of typically midwinter days, I feel a little
relieved due to sunshine.
Anyway I really want to meaningfully spend the six successive holidays from today
to next Friday.

It has been three years and twenty days in a row since I gave up smoking.
I could keep two sets of fourteen-time push-ups for the second successive day and
over 10-time push-ups for the eleventh straight day.
It's been actually snowing in Nagoya and it's very cold.
But I know that such a cold weather flips on cherry trees' preparation for their
next spring's blossoms.
When I come to think of this, I feel it's not cold......I hope so.^^;;;

Three years and nineteen days in a row have passed since I kicked smoking.

I felt this morning's chill was milder than usual but weather reports say it might
be snowy tomorrow....I hope not.
Anyway I'll have to be careful not to spend New Year's days with a cold.

I could keep no-smoking for three years and eighteen days in a row.
I did one set of 14-time push-ups yesterday and kept over one set of ten-time
push-ups for the ninth straight day.
It's quite cloudy in Nagoya now and it looks like it's going to start raining
pretty soon.
Only six days including today are left this year and actually I feel time passes
much more quickly than when I was young.
....Indeed, at the end of my life I might feel as if my life were only one moment.
