child sponsorship

Posted on

I have been paticipated in a child sponsorship program for 15years.(11years in World Vision and 4years in Plan International) The begining of sponsoring a child was a commercial message of World Vision which was on air in US. when I was a student there. It was not so common that an individual was paticipated in that kind of programs about 20years ago here(Donation was common.) although Japanese govenment supported developing countries. The commercial message really impressed me, and I decided to start the program with my own money in future.

This is the girl who I communicate with through the sponsorship.

This is the girl who I communicate with through the sponsorship program. I’m not her individual sponsor. My donation is used for the community where she lives in.


Please see their websites if you are interested in sponsoring a child.

World Vision

I sent a letter and a tiny present(stickers) for her, tonight.
プランジャパンを通じて交流してる子に、かなり長い間手紙を書いていなかったので、手紙を書きました。 キャンペーンとかで、プランジャパンからカレンダーとかは送ってたが、直筆は1年以上書いてなかった。 

面倒なので、今まで寄付金控除をしたことがなかったけど、去年、初めてやったら、結構お金が戻ってきてた(1万位は戻ってきてた気がする) 月3000円からできるので、興味がある人はぜひ。

difficulties of dieting

Posted on

My mom stopped by my house and gave me and my wife bento for lunch. It seems to be a quite high calolie bento.XD She didn’t know I was on a diet. It’s tough for me to tell someone who offers me food with kindness, “I think I’ll pass(that food) because I’m on a diet.” during dieting. That often happens(especially, at a workplace) in last couple of days.

Actually, this is not so high calorie bento, but not good for me, now.

I had that bento for lunch, so my dinner is a super low calolie hot pot, tonight.

母親が近くに来たついでに家に寄って、「お昼に」と弁当を置いていった。 ダイエット中に弁当は、あんまりよくないんだけど、夜にカロリーを抑えることにして、食べました。 夜は、飯、動物性タンパク質なしの鍋。 

ダイエット中とはいえ、あまり意気込んで野菜中心の鍋ばっかり食べてると、精神的にやられるので、昼は普通の物食べて、夜抑える方向で行こうと思ってる。 夜の置き換えプロテイン飲料も考え中。

stir-fried Chinese water spinach

I made stir-fried Chinese water spinach tonight. I don’t think this is the low carolie food, but it’s still healthier than before.

「鍋で野菜中心に!コメはなるべく取らない!」とか考えてると、ストレス溜まるし、飽きちゃうので、ちょっと普通目の食事にした。 空芯菜の炒め物と残りのワンタンを入れた野菜と豆腐のスープと飯。 

スーパーで空芯菜を見つけたので、15年ぶり位に作ってみました。 野菜炒めよりよっぽど簡単(2分くらい)なので、おすすめですが、中華鍋じゃないとおいしく作れないです(テフロンだと思いっきり空焼きできないから)

stress caused by dieting

Posted on

I still keep losing my weight to treat my fatty liver. So far, I lost 2.5kg in 5days without exercise. I stop all the soft drinks including Coca Cola Zero, icecream, oily food and junk food. I’ve made a hot pot to take lots of vegetables for every meal.(I like veggies, but not fresh vegetables.) I didn’t feel hungry at all in last 5days, but I suddenly wanted to eat “something” last night. I didn’t know what I wanted to eat,exactly. The change of my diet might cause withdrawal symptoms and give me a lot of stress to me.

I had sushi at a supermarket and ramen noodles last night.

I bought an ab roller to increase my basal metabolism by gaining my muscle. I know that aerobic exercise also will be nice to lose weight;however, I can’t change all my lifestyle in such a short time. I do what I can to keep going on a diet for a long time.

I made WONTON soup with vegetables and tofu.

空腹感も感じず、別に「何かをどうしても食べたい」という気もしないけど、昨日の夜は、その精神的な抑圧に対しての反抗なのか、「なんか食ってやりたい!」というのが収まらず、すし、ラーメンを食べたw 短期間のダイエットならまだしも、中長期になるダイエットなので、ある程度、普通の食事も取らないとダメな模様。 ま、適度にやります。

有酸素運動は、あんまりやる気もしないので、筋肉量を増やして基礎代謝を上げるため、腹筋ローラーを買った。 試しに立った状態からやったけど、ある程度まで伸ばせるけど、引き戻すのがきつすぎるwww ひざ立ててやっても、かなり効く。 しばらくは、これで筋トレして、気が向いたらジョギングでもします。

もう鍋ネタが尽きてきた。 煮た野菜は好きなんだけど、元々、鍋好きじゃない。 ただ、簡単に作れるのは、本当にいいな。 材料切ったら、調味料入れて、火かけるだけだもんな。 たまに灰汁とる位か。 昆布をつけとく時間もなかったし、職場で、昆布、白だしの代わりに、ほんだし入れたら、とけ残ったほんだしが土鍋に焦げ付いたから、スープが茶色になった。
