Friday Can’t Wait


Udah nyanteinyantei, baru inget kalo besok pagi janjian ama PT buat di”siksa“. Akh!! 😖
Dari data timbangan terakhir, berat ideal perlu turun 2-3 kilo lg. Wheew. Glad though that most of my old dresses and pants are wearable again (without having a visible tummy, lol).

Having a flat stomach is not easy, but not as hard as well!). We just need to stop saying these three things: kenyang!”, “males”, “pesen delivery yok!” Lol.

1. “Kenyang

Never ever let your body experience this. You know that bloated feeling when you’re going with friends to an all-you-can-eat buffet back in college? Well, those days were gone. Stop eating before you feel full.

2. “Males”

Nothing good comes out of laziness. Lazy people are pathetic and deserve to be fat.
I’m just agreeing with comedian Bill Burr, who said he has nothing against fat people but can’t seem to understand why we can’t say someone is fat. “Why? It’s not a race or religion, and it’s totally curable!!” “Do you know what one’s gotta do to get a six-pack stomach? It’s freaking hard. Now, what does one has to do to get fat? Nothing!” Hehehe, brilliant.

3. “Pesen delivery, yok!”

A recipe for disaster if you are trying to maintain your figure yet living alone. Ordering food with Go-food, Grab food, etc, requires you to order a minimum portion of food (usually above Rp 50k) and it will force you to finish it. Catering is just as worst if we can’t pick the menu. As results, we lose more money AND gain weight. It’s a lose-lose situation! Cooking is way cheaper and healthier. Don’t have time? *Bullshit* There are so many Buzzfeed tutorial videos out there on how to cook in 5-10 mins 😄Don’t have a stove or refrigerator? Buy one or move to a new place. You can still have just either one, but can’t survive without both. At least if you have a refrigerator, you’ll be able to eat only half of portion and then keep it in the fridge, right?

Mentorship in My Head

Pick a good, honorable mentor (or two or three). I can’t say enough of this. Even though you are not actually trying to copy that person, there will be some things you pick up along the way because of the frequency & intensity of your encounter with the person, e.g. how to talk, how to dress, how to express oneself, how to respond other people, etc…

If the person is good, you’d likely to want to become a better person. If the person is bad, then… 🙄

I’m not saying you need to look for perfection. There isn’t any in this world, including you and I. But you’ll learn to accept the person like he or she accepted you, and filter out the things you don’t like/ agree with. And most likely, that person also has something he or she admires about you (that’s how you got connected in the beginning).

Some things I learned from my mentor(s): how to generous to other people (offer a meal together, give the best food we have to be shared. It didn’t come naturally to me, but now I know that I’m getting there), how to put others’ need above oneself, how to buy things that are not cheap but more long-lasting, how to be a good sport, how to not take yourself too seriously… and many more.

Today I am humbled to remember these. I appreciated everyone who saw good in me & then pushed and encouraged me to become a better person. If you haven’t found a mentor, build your connection & be brave enough to ask for someone’s guide. Sometimes, it only takes a few phone calls or heartwarming emails and a willingness to make it happen!
