Push-ups:25 times
Walking: 0 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Three years and 316 days in a row have passed since I gave up smoking.
I was able to keep 25-time push-ups for the sixth successive day and over
19-time push-ups for the 22nd straight day.
It's sunny in Nagoya and not so hot ...I mean it's actually comfortable
due maily to low humidity.
Now I'm using an electric fan but sometimes I feel like stopping it, which
means apparently this year's summer heat is about to disappear.
Autumnal weather might have begun....anyway, it's very nice that certified
weather forecaster Mamiko Okamura has come back on a certain NHK TV program.
.....Am I the only one who feels she has become more beautiful?^^;;;

Cigarettes:0

I was able to keep no-smoking for three years and 315 days in a row.
I also kept more than 19-time push-ups for the 21st consecutive day including
the most recent five days of 25-time push-ups.
Actually, it's greatly sunny today in Nagoya for the first time in a very
long time, I feel.
The highest temperature may reach 30 degrees and it's a little hot, but
it's autumn-like because of low humidity.
Well, I have to get prepared for enjoying autumnal weather.

It has been three years and 314 days in a row since I quit smoking.
I was able to keep 25-time push-ups for the fourth successive day and over
20-time push-ups for the twentieth straight day.
It's cloudy and sometimes sunny with the predicted temperature of 29 degrees,
which is actually unlike August.
I've come to a sudden realization that buzzing of cicadas has completely gone.
Autumn is sure to be on us.

Push-ups:25 times
Walking: 41 minutes
Standing with one leg :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Three years and 313 days in a row have passed since I stopped smoking.
I was able to keep over 20-time push-ups for the nineteenth consecutive day
including the last three days of 25-time push-ups.
Yesterday, to my little surprise, the number of passage increased.
Especially last night during sleep hours, I went to the toilet four times.
Maybe, this is one of the signs of the changing seasons.
Well, I have no clear reason, but I'm sure this is not micturition.
Never ever................I wish.

I was able to keep no-smoking for three years and 312 days in a row.
I also managed to keep 25-time push-ups for the second successive day
and over 20-time push-ups for the eighteenth straight day.
After a sudden rain yesterday, it's been cloudy in Nagoya and it's not
so hot or much milder for August than usual.
Summer vacation for students is going to end soon and autumnal weather
is sure to come soon.
I'll have to start planning to do a middle-distance walking in fall.

It has been three years and 311 days in a row since I kicked smoking.
I really managed to take the courage to try increasing the number of
push-ups by one time to 25 times, and kept over 20-time push-ups for
the seventeenth consecutive day.
After a little hard rain, it's got clear in Nagoya now with temperatures
of around 29 degrees.
Autumn is sure to be just around the corner.
