Trap in Diet

Standard

Seven weeks have passed since Mei-Shun started 8-hour-carbo diet. She experienced an ups and downs last week; ate a bit too much for 3 days, controlled her eating for another 3 days. That is because she sometimes feels difficulty in restraining from sweets, led to a sudden rush toward a pantry in which delicacy of her eye’s choice is stored. She therefore decided to introduce an innovative method; candy-first dessert system.

Flexible Exercise

Standard

To our disappointment, annoying little flies swirl above slim canals watering rice paddy these days. Not only baking your nape, summer sunlight energizes such natural creatures. And Shin, who is involved in diet as well, has to stop walking to the nearest station in this season. That makes 乙戸沼 Park available for driver Mei-Shun in early mornings, with a thrilling experience to get on a swing after decades recently.

8H Carbo

Standard

It works quite well. Some of Mei-Shun’s friends carry out 8-hour diet, gave her a hint for an original method. They are allowed to eat anything, anytime within 8 hours. Other 16 hours would be used for digestion and rest for intestinal tracts. Sounds logical, yet the essence seems to be in another factor: those watching weight tend to eat less than before. That is why Mei-Shun decided to allot 8 hours to carbohydrates.

Lunar April

Standard

It starts from today, meaning the best day to wish. Mei-Shun’s is good health of course, with her stumbled weight management. Recent omikuji lots said that she would recover from the disease even if she has trouble right now. Or that the disease she has suffered from for a long time would turn to better direction. Well, it might be a disease. Not only her efforts but science would be the best medicine.

Ume Collection

Standard

Our nearest shrine has a lot of plants including beautiful bloomers. One of them is plum or ume, found in pale pink and white. Mei-Shun walked to there this morning after weeks — that might be why her omikuji was 凶=kyo, the worst luck. Oh, please forgive her, St. 摩利支天=mari-shiten. Her oath to resume good diet and exercise is solid. On the way to home, another ume in rose pink attracted her eyes. As soon as she stepped into the porch, wind started to blow harder. Thanks to his kind protection?

New Year’s Eve

Standard

… on lunar calendar it is today. We have been able to see the moon early in the morning, becoming thinner and thinner. It was impossible to find her high in eastern sky, even with Shin’s good eyesight. We miss her a lot while Mei-Shun is a bit happy thanks to the bathroom scale: she lost one sac of sugar. Has she been paralleled with the moon in shape? Then she has to be very careful not to do so from today! Anyway, shall we have a little tea party on ささらがたand 冨貴寄?

Joy of Sweets 2

Standard

Welcome to Japan, Angry Owls, yet could you please calm down? Your looks are at the opposite ends of your taste, so gentle. Shin has brought you home, leaving the U. S. just on the day of new president’s inauguration. We wish no facade like yours would reflect real emotion among them. By the way, it is rare to employ blue in food for us Japanese. Flowers, are you trying to decrease our appetite? You might be right, since shortbreads are high-caloric delicacy.
