Weeks 20 and 21, the choice is done

It's been a bit quiet around these here blogging parts. I've talked about some challenges I've been facing lately and the need to choose a path in life. I've kept the details vague as I have wanted this blog to be about my personal interests rather than any professional ones, which have absolutely nothing to do with each other.

But basically, I was choosing between working with someone versus starting my own business. Two weeks ago, I finally made the choice to start working with someone. It wasn't the ideal choice, but I didn't feel like I was ready to go in a completely different direction. It was sort of the middle ground.

To the right

It seems that life has some plans of her own for me. Three days after I started walking down a new path, I was forced into a different one. The person I was working with decided he didn't want to work with me anymore. So now I'm starting my own business.

And the doors open in a little over 2 weeks. To say I'm a bit stressed is an understatement. Waking up at 5:30 am with a gagillion thoughts in my head is now the norm. Today it was 4:30 am. After lying in bed for 15 minutes, I gave up on going back to bed, and after making a super-sized pot of coffee, I'm sitting here at the computer.

My everyday life

But before getting down to business, I thought I would catch up on my 366. We're hitting Week 24, so I have some catching up to do.

134: After the previous weeks of indulgences, I needed to cleanse.
135: Tomato soup from Trader Joes. I always keep some in the pantry; it's my go-to if I have nothing to eat.
136: Sushi with friends at our favorite local spot
137: Inspired by Emma, I made a super easy roast chicken, throwing in some carrots from my garden
138: Noodles, spare ribs, egg.
139: Cobb salad and beer. It's a good Friday combo
140: Pasta with some leftover chicken and whatever else I could find in the fridge
141: My healthy day: I did a short run, then went swimming, and ended with a huge salad and salteña (like an empanada). I haven't exercised since.
142: At least still trying to eat healthy, I made a fat salad
144a: All my meals on day 143 were associated with business meetings, so I didn't want to pull out my iPhone to snap a shot. Took this shot the next morning. Leftover brownie for breakfast. So much for healthy eating.
144b: Took an extra shot to make up for the day before. Trying to go back to healthy eating.
145: Rockfish with black beans, avocado and salsa. Healthy and tasty
146: Threw in the towel with the healthy eating and ordered a large pizza. I won't say how many slices I ate...
147: But there was enough left over for breakfast on Saturday.

Now I'm hungry. Time to make some breakfast and get to work. My To-Do list is a mere 6 pages long. But I swear, I'm taking some breaks today to exercise and enjoy the day a bit. Starting a business in two weeks is plenty of time... right?

  1. Good luck with your exciting new adventure! I'm sure it's meant to be and you'll be wonderful. Lovely foodie photos too.

    The last time I exercised was 2 weeks ago when I did 30 minutes of stepping, promised myself I would do it every day then ... nothing. Fail.

    You've inspired me though, healthy eating and exercise today here I come.
