I have been able to do withoug smoking for six years and two hundred and sixty-four days in a row.
I was able to keep at least 16-time push-ups for the two hundred and eleventh
straight day including the latest fifteen days of 27-time push-ups.

It's still hot and so humid that I almost feel sick.
Weather reports say the highest temperature of 34 degrees will continue tomorrow,
but actually such a scorching day will be the last tomorrow.
And they say the lowest tempertures will be lowered below 23 degrees.
I really hope the forecasts should come true.
How many times have I said this....let's survive.^^;;;

Walking :78 minutes

I was able to keep no-smoking for six years and two hundred and sixty-three days in a row.
I was also able to keep 27-time push-ups for the fourteenth consecutive day and
over 15-time push-ups for the two hundredand tenth successive day.

Though it is still hot, surely the sunlight is shining from lower and lower angles.
The length of daytime is steadlily shorter and shorter.
Now I feel a little relaxed because I'm highly likely to survive this summer heat.
Well, I may have to look forward to doing walking in this fall.

It has been six years and two hundred and sixty-two days in a row since I broke free from cigarettes.
I was able to keep more than 15-time push-ups for the two hundred and ninth
straight day including the most recent thirteen days of 27 times of them.

Very small rice ears like powders in many rice paddies on my way to the
workplace have emerged and some are growing larger and larger.
If I remeber right, the havest season begins in late September in Gifu
prefecture while in mid Octorber in Aich prefecture.
I have a little interest in how rice ears are growing in Gifu now.
I'm wondering if they are much bigger than those of Aichi.
Anyway, the fall of 2017 must be just around the corner.

Six years and two hundred and sixty days in a row have passed since I gave up smoking.
I was able to keep 27-time push-ups for the eleventh consecutive day and at least
16-time push-ups for the two hundred and eighth successive day.

It's still hot in Nagoya but actually I felt the humidity has begun getting a little
milder while I was riding my bike on my way to the workplace.
Some rice ears in rice paddies are steadily growing and others are not.
But the season for harvesting is drawing nearer and nearer.
I'm sure I have to start planning to do this fall's walking.
