I went to an outlet mall today (filled with almost no one, actually), to go specifically to Lululemon for some sports gear.
You see, the bras I have from there are spectacular.
But my workout have been so good this past year that, well, they don’t fit anymore… they are too big on me.
So, I needed to get some new sports bras, and I wanted to get good quality for something like that, that I would use so often.
So, we go to Lululemon, and sign up on the digital waitlist… the wait is estimated at two hours, because so few people are allowed in the store at once, right?
Like at certain busy restaurants and eateries, we were to receive a text message when an estimated ten to 15 minutes remained in our wait time, and it would say this and that we should return to the store now.
Unlike these restaurants and eateries, we also received a link that we could refresh at will in order to see where our party was “in line”.
We started at spot number thirty.
We walked around outside a long while – around 8,000 steps worth – before heading back toward the store (where we were parked), and verifying that we still were only around 9th in line.
The doorman told us that, since it was “parties” and not just individuals “in line”, we had plenty of time to go get the ice cream we were considering.
So, we drove to HEB, I did some quick research as to why I couldn’t find a childhood favorite anymore, and I got a very close alternative to it.
We then enjoyed our treats back in the car, and received our text message notification about 45 seconds after pulling into a parking space back at Lululemon.
I then had a blast in the store, and my friend, though not finding anything she was wanting inside the store, found a delightful time outside the store, practicing her handstands, and eventually being joined by one of the store’s staff – perhaps he was on his break? – to share in the doing of handstands, and to display free handstand push-ups (they are bomb, and it is a pleasure to witness anyone doing these successfully)(!).
We headed home after a good while, both of us quite satisfied, both in mind and in belly.
If you missed it, the irony was that I was getting new sportswear, because I’d released so much weight/fat from my body through my workouts and healthy eating…, yet I went and had what was likely an extremely high-calorie tub of ice cream while waiting to purchase said new sportswear… 😛
But I didn’t finish it, so, that is good, and it is now in the freezer here, finding a new version of itself after having melted. 😀
