Last call: Aug. 1 DietBet Challenge

This is available as a wallpaper download ... just saying

This is your last chance to sign up for my August DietBet challenge. The concept is a private Biggest Loser-style competition among friends with the goal of losing 4 percent of your body weight in four weeks. The buy-in is $20 and whoever reaches the 4 percent goal splits it with the other winners. Right now, $160 is at stake ... and if we suddenly get an influx of last-minute joiners, I'll add a non-monetary, totally awesome Bonus Stake for the person who loses the most percentage wise.

I'll be following a basic clean-eating plan to get to my goal. Because I'm still feeling a bit run down, despite a ton of changes to my food and training, I'm adding fish back into my diet this month to see if it helps. I'll do my official weigh-in tomorrow, but I'm guessing I'll have to lose roughly five pounds.  I can definitely use it because I've used marathon and long-distance bike training as an excuse to eat what I want, when I want. Granola isn't bad, but half a bag of it probably is.  So I'm going to get back on track and get to racing weight for the Fox Valley Marathon ... it'll be here before I know it!

Pretty sure I'm not going to win my $20 back but I'm sure going to try! This will be exciting!
