4HB Diet Week 1 Result & Binge Day! / 4 Hour Body ダイエット 1週目 結果 とご褒美の日!

Today is our binge day!!! Yeeeeeeess!!! I don’t know about Mr. Z but I am really really extremely extremely excited about today!! I could not stop thinking about a slice of dense creamy chocolate cake with whipped cream on top. I mean “Sugar Please!!”
今日は、1週間に一回の「ご褒美の日」、何を食べても良い日でーす! Mr. Zは分かりませんが、私は朝からもうウキウキ! ずっと、クリーミーで濃いチョコレートケーキとホイップクリームのことを考えていて、今日ついにそれが食べられるのです~!! マジ嬉しい・・・

Well, before the binge starts, we must weigh ourselves and measure bicep, thigh, waist and hip. I got up first! and weigh myself…. he he he… I lost total 3.4lb in 1 week without exercise! And next Mr. Z weigh himself…. OMG, he lost total 5lb in 1 week without exercise!! We are VERY pleased by this results!
さてさて、ご褒美の日が本格的に始まる前にしないといけないこと、体重の測定、そして、二の腕、太もも、ウエスト、そしてヒップの測定! まずは、私から、体重の測定・・・・ ゥフフフ なんと3.4lb(1.5kgぐらいかな、Kgにするとたいしたことないね・・・)1週間で減りました! そして、ザックは5lbも(2.5kgぐらいかな)も痩せちゃってます! 体重だけで、これだけ変化するって、予想外でとても満足!

Next, we measured our bicep, thigh, waist, and hip. My bicep was almost exactly the same. My thigh went down about 1.5 inches from right thigh, also 1.5 inches from left thigh. My waist went down by 1.5inch. And at last my hip was the same…. Total, I went down by about 4.5 inches!!
次ー! 二の腕、太もも、ウェストとヒップの測定です。 まずは、私から、二の腕は変化なし。 太ももは、両モモとも3センチずつ減ってました! ウエストも3センチ減ってました~! ヒップ、変化なし・・・ 体総合で11cm減ってました。 これって、ちょっとすごくない?

Next, Mr. Z, his bicep was almost the same. His thigh went down by about 2 inches from the right thigh and 1 inch from the left thigh. His waist went down by about 1.5 inches. And his hip was about the same. Total, he went down by about 3.5 inches!
さて、Mr. Zですが、二の腕変化なし。 太ももは、右太ももが4cm減、左太ももが1.5cm減、ウェストも3.5cm減! ヒップは変化ほぼなしです。 体総合で9cm減!

Yes, we will continue this diet at least 3 more weeks. We think we can do it. It is not that hard after all because we won’t get hungry. You may have some craving for sugar, starch, and fruits but you can eat them once a week. This results encouraged us to continue this diet A LOT!
はい、続けます。 このダイエット続けちゃいます! 少なくとも後3週間! 確かに、食事制限はありますが、とにかくこのダイエットでお腹がすくことがない! 時には、甘いものや、パン、ご飯、フルーツ食べたいなーって思うときもありますが、1週間に一度は食べられるし・・・ とにかく、この結果で、かなり戦闘心、燃えてます! 頑張るぞ~!!

So as I mentioned earlier, today is our binge day! You can eat whatever you want but 4HB said it recommends us to eat high protein food in the morning and before the 2nd meal, drink a glass of grapefruit juice. So we did eat a very small but high protein breakfast. 1 egg & pork & spinach scramble plus guacamole and salsa / person.
さて、上にも書きましたように、今日はご褒美の日! しかし、4HBはご褒美の日も、ハイプロテインの食事からはじめ、2食目の前にグレープフルーツジュースを飲むように進めているので、取りあえず、少なめに、1つの卵でスクランブルエッグを残りのポークとホウレン草で作って、ワカモレとサルサで食べてみました。

Next, we decided to go to 24 Dinner to have Chicken & Waffle! So we went there to have lunch! We ordered a glass of grapefruit juice and Coffee. I ordered the 1/2 size of Chicken & Waffle just because I know their normal volume is huge. Mr. Z ordered a glass of beer “Ommegang Aphrodie” and Chef’s Waffle = Apple Cinnamon Waffle!
さて次々、ダウンタウンにある24 Dinerというお店に、ランチを食べに行くことを決めていたので、早速そちらに向かうことに! まず最初に、グレープフルーツジュースとコーヒーを注文。 そして私は、フライドチキンとワッフルのハーフサイズを! Mr. Zはシェフスペシャルワッフルで、普通サイズの林檎をキャラメルとシナモンでソテーされたものが乗っているワッフルを注文! Mr. Zは”Ommegang Aphrodie“と言うシャンパンのようなビールも注文。

The lunch was served and smelled good and tasted good! We were so happy for this binge day. Our 1/2 way down to the meal, we both realized that we were already full…. 🙁 “What!! We only had 1/2!! I mean my order is 1/2 size to begin with!! What is going on?” And we both started sweating… and it was weird sweat… I think the sugar was doing something to our body. So it was really really really really really disappointed and unfortunate but we only finished 1/2 of the meal and left the place.
オーダーしたランチが運ばれてきました~! イエーイ!! さてさて、お味はと言いますと、美味しいに決まってるじゃーん!! メープルシロップたっぷりのワッフルとフライドチキン! しかし、大変なことが起こってしまいました。 半分ぐらい食べ終わった地点で、2人ともお腹一杯・・・ 「ちょっと、私のワッフルとチキンなんてハーフサイズなのに、食べきれないって~!!!!どういうこと~!! いや~~~、悔しい~~~!!!」 Mr. Zも一緒、半分の地点で、ギブです・・・ 考えられない・・・ そしたら2人とも、脂汗をかき始めて・・・ 「ええええええええええええ、砂糖だ! 体が砂糖の分解で忙しいのかな?」と結局、とても悔しく残念なことに、半分だけ食べて、お店を出ることになりました。

Sad Moment

We are not sure what we are going to do for dinner… I am certainly not sure about my desert now… 4HB is doing something to our body and probably good thing to our body. Next week, I may not have much sugar crave like I had this week. Well, now I am planning the meal plan for next week. I will introduce that to you on my next blog! Stay tuned!!
いやー、この調子でいくと、夕飯何食べよう・・ デザート食べるの、ちょっと怖くなってきた・・・ 4HBのおかげ?で、体の具合が変化してるみたいです。 多分、良い変化でしょう。 ってか、そう思いたい・・・ さてさて、来週のメニュープランをそろそろ考えなくては。 考え次第、次のブログでお伝えしまーす! 乞うご期待!

Delicious vanilla honey laté

One of the shining stars in morning life is that first cup of warm coffee or tea. There is a certain comfort and joy that comes from sipping on what I can only describe as a delicious security blanket. Everything from this point on in the day is tolerable because of the first cup of coffee.

The Unseen Bean in Boulder Colorado, is one of the few establishments that has really perfected the craft of beverage service. They are prompt, polite, friendly and know how to satisfy the need for caffeine in unique ways. But more on them later.

The laté has long been a cherished companion to my morning routine and I think that the over-all sugary tones that are usually associated with it have kept me at bay for quite sometime. Like in the terrible institution Starbucks, there is usually more sugar than flavor. I requested a laté that would have a low sweetener content, and Rose prepared this little treat.

The honey does all the sweetening but its not over board and it seems to enhance the creaminess of the milk and there is a slight but welcomed hint of vanilla at the end. With every sip, the foam, milk, coffee and flavors seem to meld together so fluidly.

I give the fine young, cannibalistic, staff at the Unseen Bean 2 thumbs up for a great delivery and interesting variation on an old favorite.
