Target Therapy


Today I am resting. I got my 8 mile run in and did yoga this weekend.
My body needs a break.
I am consistently at 134 now and feelin' slim and happy.


Well, maybe not so happy, but getting there. I always have the blues on Monday. Anyone else?
But this will help:


I am going to Target after work. And I'm going to spend a lot of money there. I need so many things: new rug for kitchen, tons of toiletries (do you happen to run out of everything at the same time or is it just me?), cleaning stuff, etc. etc. I'm sure I will end up with a heck ova lot more in my cart than just what is on my list. That's what ya gotta love about Target.
Then I'm going home to finish watching my Flight of the Conchords dvd. Does anyone else love these guys or am I the only person in the universe?

I use to hate Mondays, until I switched jobs - now they aren't so bad.

Did my own Target therapy yesterday, I love that store...and I feel so much better now.

Have fun!

Debbie said...

Nice run and yoga! I need to get into yoga (per my physical therapist). I too did my Target shopping Saturday...with pretty much the same type of list! And I always have a case of the mondays!!

I love me some Target. Have fun.

I miss Target badly. I am so looking forward to my trip to the states in Aug. Target will be hit and hit hard!

Robin said...

I love Target!

congrats on feelin' slim and happy.

I had never heard of Flight of the Concords until Mrs. F posted their "business time" video. OMG, I laughed so hard. I am definitely goingt to check them out.

I saw a couple of episodes of Flight of the Concords last season. It's such a funny, quirky show! Apparently they are on tour and will be in SF soon and I guess their show sold out in like half an hour or something.

I love Target, and I also run out of a lot of toiletries at the same time!
You'll have to (subtly?) fill us in on your weekend!

I used to sing a song called the "Sunday Night Blues" composed by me.

Being a SAHM now everyday feels like Monday. I kidd, I kidd.

Enjoy Target. I hope you get princess parking and everything you need is on sale :)

Happy Monday! Have fun at Target.

MissAllycat said...

I love me some Conchords. POM - you're the most beautiful girl in the room. :)

chia said...

I love my Target :-). Best retail therapy for the dollar!

You're not the only one :-). I'm currently out of everything as well! Moisturizer, sunscreen, face wash, everything :-(!

Your skinny ass needs to cheer up! Bring on the anti-blues kit! Oh shoot, I'm all out of vodka. Meh.

Wow, I thought shopping for clothing or shoes was more therapeutic. Now I’ll be looking at everyone in Target wondering if this is their therapy session. That’s why they call it ‘Stormy Monday’!

AnthonyP said...

First off, you are rocking slim and looking great.

Yoga - I have started to "attempt" to do yoga...runner's pose, warrior one, warrior two...what the heck ? I keep falling on the floor.

And then there are Mondays....I HATE THEM.

I live in Denver and went to see FOTC here last week - it was amazing. I haven't laughed that hard, for that long, in forever. They were hilarious - played lots of the fan favorites and some new songs too. If you ever get the chance to see them live you definitely should!

ShirleyPerly said...

Girl, you look great! (Just saw the photos from before and after below)

Have fun at Target and buy a few things for me. I'm out of a lot of stuff too.

Laura N said...

I cannot go into Target without spending a minimum of $150. It sucks. Of course, I'm buying diapers and crap still, and not cute stuff for the house, so that may be why I hate it.

My girlfriend in TX loves Flight of the C's. I need to get that DVD set.

Keep up the great work, skinnie minnie!

Charmaine said...

I TOTALLY run out of everything, literally, to the DAY:

Shampoo, Rinse, Moisturizer, Foundation, Paper Towel, TP, Wind-ex, Dishwashing liquid...and so on. It's ridiculous. I think it's a plot to drive me mad. Someone is sneaking into my house while I'm at work and....

teacherwoman said...

I remember having those monday blues.. kind of annoying.

The last time I HAD to go to target was to get toilet paper, face wash, body lotion, and shampoo... all at the same damn time! hehehe.

I hope your monday off is enjoyable... I will be taking the day off too. I thought i could swim, but i am still learning how to walk after the half...

The Laminator said...

Why don't they grow some sense and build a Target in NYC already...I need stuff...

Might have to adopt your non-plan plan after my next marathon since it's working out so well for you.

Lily on the Road said...

Hey, we need a Target in Ottawa.

Glad you're taking a break....slim and happy, you deserve it!

Marcy said...

Oooooooo I *heart* Target. The kids and I always go there "after school" it's our girl thing :P Have fun chica!

D10 said...

I always leave Target with more than I needed. Happy shopping!

Crystal said...

I think it's a conspiracy-I run out of all my beauty stuff at the same time and the same goes for cleaning supplies. Never just need one of them and they sure can add up the bill. Whatch gonna do though. Hope Target therapy cures the Monday blues.

Jess said...

I too always run out of everything at the same time. I figure that's good -- better to make one big trip than lots of little ones!

Kelly O said...

I too heart Target, just went to Super Target tonight. I'm such a dork I took pictures of my healthy grub and put on my blog. I need to get out more.
;-)

J~Mom said...

I loooove Target!! Especially the little end caps with clearance items!!

sunshine said...

Yay for Target! I LOVE that place!!!

And, my latest purchase there included a cloth, reusable bag, so I don't feel as guilty carrying out more than I need! ;)

Lady Language said...

I have oodles of clothes
at my disposal, but
still shop at Target :)

Kristen said...

if i can get out of Tar-jay spending less than $100, i'm happy! love that store. don't think they have the greatest bargains, but a one stop shop indeed!

i think FOTC is just plain weird.

I always run out of toiletries at the same time. pain in the butt! haha. I had some target therapy on Sunday. It was nice :-)

Sagan Morrow said...

I kind of like Mondays. The fresh start and all gets me all pumped up.

And shopping for things like toiletries can be quite enjoyable!

I love both Target and the Conchords!
