Being a freelancer is tough. Everyone around me see it as an awesome opportunity to work from home, but to me, it ain’t that simple.
First of all, being a freelancer takes a lot of discipline. I have to force myself to be productive everyday from 9 to 5. That means no TV, less social media on working hours, no snacking or even meals in between working hours. For me, the last part is the toughest. Since I quit my job last December, the arrow on my weight scale has been going up and down more drastic than a teenager’s first love relationship.
I’ve tried eating less at night, more exercises during the day, but lately more and more things just caught on to me. I ended up having no exercise and stress munching throughout my day. In the middle of my post weight increase depression (no, I’m not really depressed), I found out about a fast food joint called Quiznos Subway in Jakarta. That was when I happily realized I could find a veggie filled fast food in Jakarta!
This is probably the only fast food you can try if you’re in the middle of an intensive diet (no, I’m not really having an intensive diet). I saw Quiznos the first time when I was in the middle of New Delhi, seeing it in East of Jakarta was a pleasant surprise!
Although I came with the intention to eat something with low calorie (veggie and wheat bread), I quickly gave up after entering the restaurant and smelled the pleasant aroma in the air. I mean, look at these photos yourself!
On that day, HG and I had planned to go to a few other places to try on Watt Coffee and Soulfood. Upon realising that, I decided to take it easy on my first bite in Quiznos by sharing my food with HG. After all, Quiznos, sandwich’s portion is huge!
Like I said, I was on an intensive diet (no, I am not that motivated), so I ordered the Zesty Steak (at least it had veggies). To add it up, we got ourselves some curled fries and lemon tea (no, it was not sugarless or organic).
Quiznos was great! I am actually writing this post craving for more of Quiznos. Thank God, they have another branch at Karawaci, which is closer to where I live! If you haven’t been there, you really should! For its taste, service and price, I am giving it an 8!
By now, you would have realized that I want to lose weight and prepare for the summer. You would have also realized that I am not that motivated. Is there any other “healthy” fast food restaurants that I can visit?
