So I have just gotten approved for a one month leave of absence by my company for a home visit this summer. That’s right, one whole month! To say that I am ecstatic is a complete understatement. It’s been seven years since I’ve been home and dudes, it is time. I miss my mom, my dad, my three brothers, and my sister. I miss Jakarta, and most of all, I miss the food.
Anyways, in preparation of this visit home, I need to lose ten pounds! Yes, I am aware that I am (kinda) thin and I don’t necessarily need (or want!) to lose weight. However, due to the omgdeliciousness of Indonesian food, I know I’m going to be eating like damn heffer for every second of every day that I am there. So, to anticipate the inevitable weight gain (at an estimated ten pounds haha), I need to lose that weight so when I come back to good ol’ NYC I will at least look the same.
I’m going home in July, four months from now. Considering that I am lazy and just ridiculously weak-willed when it comes to dieting, I figured it will take me about three months to do this (at the superhuman pace of three pounds lost a month).SOOOOOoooo, that leaves me about a month to eat whatever I want. I started this wonderful fat-filled 30 days by eating a gigantic lunch at the Black Bear in Hoboken.
