Push-ups:11 times
Walking:0 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

I was able to keep no-smoking for five years and fifty-three days in a row.
I managed to try increasing the number of push-ups by just one time to 11
times and kept over nine-time push-ups for the fifth successive day.

It's sunny and not so cold with the forecast highest temperature of 12
degrees in Nagoya, which makes me fee a little relieved.
I've noticed that the length of daytime is steadily getting longer and
longer, and now it doesn't get dark until about 5:30 p.m.
I'm sure spring is also steadily drawing nearer and nearer.

It has been five years and fifty-two days in a row since I broke my smoking habit.
I was able to keep 10-time push-ups for the fourth consecutive day and I hope
to increase the number little by little, if possible.

After a long rain, now it's stopped but it's cloudy and I want much more sunshine.
Weather reports say people in Nagoya will not see sunshine today but tomorrow
it's sure to be sunny because a series of high-pressure systems will cover most of
the Japanese archipelago for the next several days.
Anyway, I've been fed up with winter cold and I have to start thinking about
plum blossoms, which have already begun flowering, and of courese cherry blossoms.

Push-ups:10 times
Walking:a total of 100 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes:0
jogging on the spot :0 minutes

Five years and fifty-one days in a row have passed since I kicked smoking.
I was able to keep 10-time push-ups for the third straight day.

It's been raining since early this morning but it's not so a cold rain.
This morning finally my diarrhea stopped.
Since weather forecasts say it will be rainy for two days, I will not
be able to do a walking, I'm afraid.
But actually it all depends on how I look at it, because of rain,
I will be able to tackle English composition to my heart's content.
....if possible, I hope so.^^;;;

I have succeeded in keeping myself from smoking for five years and fifty days in a row.
I was able to keep 10-time push-ups for the second successive day.

Very unfortunately, I had diarrhea yesterday and I suspect the cause is Komeda's
iced coffee because I felt it tasted worse than usual at the first sip.
I had diarrhea twice in the evening and again I had the ensuing hemorrhoid.
Now I've decided I will never go to a Komeda for the rest of my life.

I was able to keep no smoking for five years and forty-nine days in a row.
I also was able to resume push -ups from 10 times for the first time in three days,
and I hope to keep at least this level as long as possible until spring.

It's sunny with abundant sunshine but I've noticed that there is a clear contrail
in the blue sky, which means there is a 80% chance of rain tomorrow or the day
after tomorrow.
In either case, we'll have some rain in the very near future.
I really hope it will not be snowy.

It has been five years and forty-eight days in a row since I stopped smoking.
I haven't done push-ups for three days because of the record winter cold.
The chill has finally gone and now it's normally cold, so I have to resume
push-ups as soon as possible before my arms' muscle has been weakened.

Weather forecasts say it will be much warmder tomorrow and the next few days.
I really hope the forecasts must be right.
After that constipation, I've noticed that I often burp recently.
I bought and took some antiflatuent, and actually I feel better now.
Anyway I really don't want to suffer from constipation anymore.

Five years and forty-seven days in a row have passed since I gave up smoking.
I haven't done push-ups due maily to the winter cold and I hope to resume them
as soon as possible after it gets much warmer than today.

Unbelievably, today's lowest temperature was, according to weather reports,
minus 4.8 degrees in Nagoya, almost minus 5 degrees, which is cold enough
to discourage me to do any physical exercises.
TV news reports say it snowed or sleeted in Okinawa for the first time ever.
Anyway, I have to escape into somewhere to warm myself.

I'm afraid I'm so busy today that I cannot afford to stay here any longer.
