I've Lost IT!!

First off, I want to thank whoever joined my Summer Blog Party Challenge. Unfortunately, it doesn't tell me who signed up...just that there's two of us. So if you're going to participate, I need to know.
So why did I lose it...I work for DaVita - it's the nation's largest dialysis provider. And they do so many neat things to raise awareness about kidney disease, which is the most horrible thing by the way and one of the things they started doing was something called Tour DaVita, like Tour de France. And one of my co-workers wanted someone she knew to do it with her, so I agreed. So now, in September, I'm doing a 240 mile bike ride in Wisconsin over 4 days. So now I have to train my butt off to be able to do this. I'm hoping to lose 15 more pounds before September when I do this...and unfortunately the scale keeps going up, despite my efforts for it to go down...but TOM showed up today so I'm hoping by the end of the weekend, to be back on track and training to ride 80 miles in one day. I'll post more about the Blog Challenge tomorrow!

Oh.My.Word. I am so impressed!

I wimped out on doing 150 miles over TWO days. I can't even imagine doing 80/day for FOUR days.
