Idle hands..... feet and legs

I thought I might jump out of my  own skin this weekend not being able to get on my bike or even go for a walk in the bright  warm sunshine. It was TOUGH.   Forced triathlon detox???? Ummm. Yes

I knew I was doomed when some of my non triathlon related plans fell though this weekend that held  promise in keeping me well distracted. Then, when I heard the weather forecasted for dry, sunny and 60 degrees for both days, I knew I was in deep poopy.  

"Get creative, you'll be fine!" I told myself.

 First, I played with my blog freshening it up a bit and added a new font. Don't even ask... I couldn't tell you now  how I managed to do this even following a tutorial but it worked on the very first try following many many steps. Purely a stroke of luck it worked. Ha!
So here's what else I did while it seemed  the universe of triathletes were outside on two wheels:



lets see... I made some peanut butter cookies






while simultaneously starting a food diary so I could track how many cookies
I shoveled in while having the consequences of accounting  for my bad behavior. Writing things down gives instant SELF CONTROL!!!

I organized my winter clothes closet as you can see here. Look how OCD-like the colors are all sorted!

and detailed my car, Inside

                  
and out. You could eat lunch off the floor mats. :-)


Happy Spring cleaning!

You have amazing self-control! I know how it feels to feel stuck in the house not able to train and it is rough.

I loved (hated) your text this weekend and when I told you to go out in your bikini and you did not reply, I knew things were bad. LOL.

LOVE the new layout E! I am rooting for you and taking my Vit D3 with a vengenace. HEAL BONE HEAL!!!
You totally need to come to my house and clean for me, my car is a train wreck. Seriously I think the detailing people would laugh me off the lot.
