Push-ups :21 times
Walking :0 minutes
Standing on one foot :10 minutes each
Cigarettes :0
jogging-on-the-spot :0 minutes

It has been seven years and two hundred and ninety-five days in a row since I
broke free from smoking.
I was able to keep more than 14-time push-ups for the twenty-first straight
day and 21-time push-ups for the thirteenth consecutive day.

It's been raining in Nagoya since last night and now it's began raining heavily.
The typhoon #24 is just approaching Nagoya little by little to directly hit it.
I'm afraid there might be some damage to my house and neighbors.
Actually, this year, Japan has seen more typhoons than average year, doesn't it?
Anyway, I have no choice but to pray for my safety.

Push-ups :21 times
Walking :a total of 60 minutes

Cigarettes :0
jogging-on-the-spot :0 minutes

Seven years and two hundred and ninety-four days in a row have passed since I
overcame a bad habit of smoking.
I was able to keep greater than 14-time push-ups for the twentieth successive day
including the latest twelve days of 21-time push-ups.

It's been raining since early this morning and it's cloudy and I feel a little cold.
Actually, I got a very severe dull pain in my low back in the early morning two days ago.
I felt something might be wrong with my kidney, but very luckily and happily,
a few hours later, the pain was getting milder and milder maily thanks to Loxoprofen.
And now I feel I've completely recovered from the low back pain.
To be honest, I don't know the reason for the pain, but I just guess the chilly weather
on that early morning might have triggered the pain.
Anyway,.....IT'S GOOD TO BE ALIVE.

Push-ups :21 times
Walking :30 minutes

Cigarettes :0

I have succeeded in preventing myself from smoking for seven years and two
hundred and ninety-one days in a row.
I was able to keep 21-time push-ups for the ninth straight day and at least
15-time push-ups for the seventeenth consecutive day.

It was sunny in Nagoya in the morning, but now, it's quite cloudy.
It looks like it's going to start raining pretty soon just as weather ladies said last night.
They also said the typhoon #24 might turn for direction toward the Japanese archipelago.
It depends on the high-pressure system in the Pacific Ocean and westerlies.
I really hope it will not come.
Anyway, I can do nothing about that.....I have no choice but to pray.

I have been able to do without smoking for seven years and two hundred and ninety days in a row.
I was able to keep over 14-time push-ups for the sixteenth successive day
including the most recent eight days of 21-time push-ups.

It's been raining in Nagoya since early this morning and it's been very
dark and honestly I feel cold just a little though it's midday.
I really hope the typhoon #24 will not turn for direction toward the Japanese archipelago.
I'm afraid that the panel the typhoon #21 peeled on September 4th is still dangling.
I'm wondering why the landlord does not repair it because the broken panel
is still on the electric cable.

Push-ups :21 times
Walking :a total of 120 minutes
Standing on one foot :0 minutes each
Cigarettes :0

I was able to keep no-smoking for seven years and two hundred and eighty-nine days in a row.
I was also able to keep 21-time push-ups for the seventh successive day
and moe than 14-time push-ups for the fifteenth straight day.

It's greatly sunny in Nagoya and I can enjoy plenty of sunlight.
Yesterday, I did a middle-distance walking from JR Kuwana station to
JR Tomida station along Route One, which took about 90 minutes of walking
time and about 50 mintes of break time at a Mac restaurant.
I was aware that I was unprepared for such a walking, but I had second thought.
That is, I should use this walking as part of preparation for a planned
long-distance walking in the near future, so, I did it.
