I have been really unmotivated about everything lately. Working. Exercising. Eating healthy. Socializing. Blogging. Strangely enough the only thing I do find some motivation for is writing which usually is not the case. But even that has its days.
The thing is I haven't stopped doing these things. I still work, exercise, eat healthy (for the most part), socialize, blog, write. I just don't feel like it all the time, and I am dragging myself through these activities.
On top of all this, I am craving sweets like you wouldn't believe. I am trying my best not to eat them (although my friend Heather was hazing me with M&M's at work the other day). They all just seem so tempting, and I think it's because I am bored and tired and sweets seem very exciting in the realm of my day-to-day life. It doesn't help we have a cupcake party at work every day and that there was an open bag of M&M's within arm's reach sitting on the conference room table during my two hour meeting this morning. I did not take any but it's haunting me still.
I think after months of being so strict and disciplined in all aspects of my life, I want to rebel. I am getting sick of being so good. Good can be so boring sometimes.
Which may be why on the day before we leave for Chicago for Jacey and Dan's wedding, I am daydreaming about the cupcake places I will visit when I am there. Dan has been thinking about all the record stores he wants to visit, I am thinking cupcakes. He has his thing, I have my own.
Okay, so it's not everyone's definition of rebellion, but me and my friend Lindsey who lives in Chicago, we initially talked about hitting one place, but now we just might have a mini-Chicago cupcake crawl.
Some of you may know that last summer, my sister Annette and I had a cupcake crawl in Manhattan. In one afternoon, we ate cupcakes from six different places and while it was one of my favorite days ever, it was a LOT of cupcakes in one day. Things got very...sweet by the end. Lindsey and I will be more moderate (I need to fit in my dress--white or not, I am still undecided, so I will pack them both). We're thinking about checking out here and there.
I am terribly excited. Let the rebellion begin!
