It has been four years and 204 days in a row since I stopped smoking.
I was able to keep over 19-time push-ups for the thirty-ninth consecutive day
including the most recent seven days of 25 times.
It's cloudy and actually more humid than yesterday, so I can feel rainy clouds
are coming nearer and nearer.
I'm planning to go to a library tomorrow, so I'm afraid it'll surely be rainy tomorrow.

Push-ups:25 times
Walking:a total of 85 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Four years and 203 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 thirty-eighth straight day.
It's cloudy and sometimes sunny but it's much more humid than yesterday maybe because
rainy clouds are coming nearer and nearer.
I'm going to do walking in an unfamiliar town in the near future if weather permits.
I hope the rainy season will not end by then since I still need a cloudy day.^^;

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and 202 days in a row.
I also was able to keep over 19-time push-ups for the thirty-seventh consecutive
day including the latest five days of 25 times.
It's sunny in Nagoya today though weahter forecasts said last night it was cloudy.
I feel it's not too hot and hope to do walking today.
I enjoyed the movie "IRON MAN" in English last night with Japanese subtitles.
Contrary to my expectation, actually, it was interesting.
I feel it has been a little easier for me to understand English in films
especially after I tried practicing "Free Conversation" which is now on k-sun_s blog.

It has been four years and 201 days in a row since I quit smoking.
I was able to keep 25-time push-ups for the fourth successive day and over
19-time push-ups for the thirty-sixth straight day.
It's quite cloudy....weather forecasts say it will be cloudy all day today, but
actually it looks like it's going to start raining NOW as it's getting darker.
I think I had better have brought a pair of capa or a rain suit.
I'm really afraid I may be caught in the rain on my way back.

Four years and 200 days in a row since I shook off a bad habit of smoking.
I was able to keep over 19-time push-ups for the thirty-fifth consecutive day
including the most recent three days of 25 times.
It's been raining since early this morning and sometimes a little heavily.
According to weahter reports, there will be couldy or rainys in Nagoya for more
than one week just like a typical rainy season.
Actually, it had been a little too hot recently, so it may be lucky that rain clouds
are blocking severe sunshine and scorching heat.
But I have to guard against temperature differences.

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and 199 days in a row.
I managed to keep 25-time push-ups for the second successive day and over
19-time push-ups for the thirty-fourth straight day.
It's hot and actually humid, so I have to give up a plan to do a walking.
Now, my PC is showing every website is waiting...I cannot connect websites.
According to the PC's indication, the Internet connection is established, but
I cannot see any website...Maybe the PC is not connected in fact.
Well, of course, when you see this message, the PC has become able to connect
the Internet.^^;;;
