Last night I went to Target. I think I’ve told you about this Target before. It is like no other Target you’ve seen in your life. People on Yelp call it the “Seventh Circle of Hell,” and unfortunately, that’s true.
I was there to pick up a few groceries because they are often a dollar or two cheaper than our little grocery store down the street. Like oatmeal, for example. It’s nearly two dollars cheaper at Target! But then this happened.
No sales, no special deals… just 93% sold out. And completely sold out of C’s favorite. I was lucky enough to snag the second to last Simply Orange and third to last bag of chicken nuggets. They were completely sold out of Ruffles and don’t even get me started on what the health and beauty aisles look like. I think the saddest part of the whole experience is that if it wasn’t like this, you would be in shock and feel like you walked through a time warp. Target Corporate has to cringe everytime they set foot in this store.
So today is the first day of the Burpee Challenge! How did it go? I kicked off with 15 burpees, including a push up for each, and it was a little tougher than I thought it was going to be. I made it to 7 and started to struggle a bit, but pushed through to the end. My quads were burning the worst and the jumping up really put it into overdrive. It’s not too late to join in! I even convinced my sister to do it — she was planning on doing one, but ended up doing three. [P.S. Join the conversation on Twitter by using #BurpeeChallenge.]
Before I did my burpees, I went for a four mile run. I was going to go longer, but wasn’t sure if busted toe could handle it… but it turned out OK! It feels a little tender now, but hopefully it will toughen up and stop being so annoying.
Are there any stores by you that seem to be a disaster zone? Tell me how your morning workouts [and burpees!] went.
