Push-ups:20 times
Walking:40+40 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Four years and 327 days in a row have passed since I quit my smoking habit.
I had made mistakes in recording the number of no-smoking these few days.
I was able to keep 20-time push-ups for the sixth successive day.

I really hate my hometown because, today again, I was nearly killed by a crazy driver
who paid no attention to any pedestrians and drove his car at speed from a narrow alley
to a street through a sidewalk.
Of course, he committed stop sign violation and, what is even worse, he accelerated it.
Unbelievably crazy driver, as is often the case with drivers in Aichi prefecture,
which is the traditionally worst prefecture in terms of traffice fatalities.
I have to say again and again, "Shame on you, all drivers!"

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and 236 days in a row.
I also was able to keep 20-time push-ups for the fifth consecutive day and
resume standing-on-one-leg for 10 minutes each for the first time in two days.

From today I began feeling a little cold while riding a bike to my workplace.
There are a lot of things to do before this year's full-blown wintry cold comes,
but actually I feel like enjoying the last proper period for walking.
Last night I found the way of getting rid of temporary files and images
in the temp folder in my PC.
Then I hope I can secure a minimum of privacy protection.
Now I'm wondering if I can enable temporary files to be deleted automatically.

It has been four years and 235 days in a row since I shook off my bad habit of smoking.
I was able to keep 20-time push-ups for the fourth straight day and I felt
my body was a little heavy due mainly to drinking too much the previous night.

It was greatly sunny again in Nagoya with the forecast highest temperature
of 21 degrees, which I think is rather higher for this time of year, indeed.
Anyway, weather reports say it will get much colder in the mornings and evenings.
And actually I've begun feeling it's relatively cold especially in the evenings.
From today, I start wearing a pair of blue jean pants instead of cotton pants for summer.
Which means.....the end of this year's autumn is steadily drawing nearer and nearer.

Four years and 234 days in a row have passed since I overcame a bad habit of smoking.
I was able to keep 20-time push-ups for the third successive day though
I still feel it a little hard for me.

It was rather warm in the morning just as weahter reports said the previous day.
Now it's cloudy and sometimes sunny.
And it's a little windy but not so cold.
I've got a little headache maily because I may have drunk a little too much.
I drank just a little more than usual by a 500-ml can of beer, indeed.
I may have got older.....tut.^^;;;

I was able to keep no-smoking for four years and 323 days in a row.
I also was able to keep 20-time push-ups for the second consecutive day
though I felt a little pain in my pectoral muscle.

It's cloudy but not so cold and weather reports say the warm south wind
is blowing into western Japan.
They also say tomorrow's lowest temperature will be 18 degrees, which
is rather warm than usual morning for this time of year.
Recently I've come to encounter those who are wearing a flu mask,
so I'll also have to be careful.

It has been four years and 322 days in a row since I broke my bad habit of smoking.
I called forth the courage and try doing push-ups from 20 times.
I felt relieved because I didn't feel any pain in my right wrist, and
I hope to continue push-ups as long as possible as I used to.

It's been getting colder and colder since Sunday and the lowest
temperature this morning was 8 degrees just like a winter day.
Since last Saturday was still a little summerlike, this temperature
difference is tough for my body.
I wore two more items of night clothing before going to bed.
I'm sure that's why I didn't catch a cold.
I mustn't forget "Carelessness is our greatest enemy."
