Something new is in the works. I'm excited, but given Pebbles' history, have my expectations of it actually happening set very, very low. The new plan is that I am going to ride Cha-Cha to the train station early on Saturday morning, ride the train to Dallas and then go riding with Pebbles and Slater. Followed by pizza, of course! Benefits include people to ride with and a new place to see. Pebbles and I can hang out and ride slow together and Slater can ride loops around us on his superfast cruisey bike. And then there will be pizza! If I were laying odds, I'd say 50/50. Pebbles doesn't have much early morning follow-through. Even if it doesn't happen this time, it's something to think about for the future.
Still struggling with the sleep thing, but that's pretty much par for my course. Attended a really good meeting last night and came home and started working on my list of "One Hundred Things I Will Do Instead Of Insert-Your-Vice/Obsession/Bane-of_Your-Existance-Here" list. In my effort to retrain and rewire my brain, I sometimes need some distraction techniques that first do no harm. I used a similar process when I was quitting smoking a few years ago. This list is going in my handy-dandy (hi anne) mini-notebook as well. I added about 30 items to the list last night.
I'm going to take it sort of easy today, exercise wise, as I want to save my legs for tomorrow's ride. The ride WILL happen, the only question remaining is will it be here or there. I'll spend some treadmill time at lunch and that will be it for today. After work will be grocery shopping, as Old Mother Hubbard's Cupboard is bare. I'll also pick up some sort of mid-ride snack for tomorrow. Any particular suggestions? Slater is fond of Clif bars. Don't know that they really differ from candy bars.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Have a plan.
