Waiting For …

Standard

Our ancestors she might be, a white lily at the shrine Shin and Mei-Shun walk to in the morning. It takes just a week for buds to be clearly recognized — three flowers could be seen on this stalk soon. Another pleasure of the couple was the luckiest omikuji, all the same in number and fortune they drew respectively.

Rice ears began to appear on the top of each green, attracting many blue dragonflies with little white flowers.

 

 

Back and Forth

Standard

As it has become sultry, I gave up taking a nap at roof floor moving down to stairs one by one. Purr, it is very nice to feel breeze from the west in the morning. However, just a few days since rainy season was over, dark clouds and humid air continue to accompany the sunrise. Even recent 大暑=taisho, the last of summer 二十四節気 failed to be the hottest. Season is going like mom’s diet, meow.

Joy of Diet

Standard

Mei-Shun’s 8-hour-carbo/candy-first methods have seen 2 months. They are going so-so, allowed her to lose nearly three bags of sugar in total. Another manner has been introduced recently to get on a scale after enough perspiration, good stool and empty stomach — they give the minimum weight. Mental health is one of the most important factors for sustainable management, isn’t it?

 

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.
