SW + 11

It's been a week since I posted anything on the sugar-free diet, besides venting yesterday about the lack of sugar-free syrups for coffee. The De-tox thing went by the wayside after only 4 days, but I've been very good about avoiding sugar. Most days I don't even really think about it, although I admit that as I was stuffing the Valentines Day goody bags for the kids, it was all I could do not to unwrap a Starburst and just lick it once. Or maybe twice. (Lemon and Orange preferred, please). How sad is that? Especially since Starburst is not even in my top 10 list of favorite candies.

Beyond that, I also recently bought a pedometer. I thought it might be interesting to keep track of how many steps I take in a day. Unfortunately, the answer is not that many. You're supposed to shoot for 10,000 steps a day as a means of keeping slim without ever going to the gym. On an "average" day, I get in about 5000 steps. The other day when I sat at school all day and wrote a paper, I got in 2173. Lame. On the one day I managed to get to the gym, I racked up 15,274. That's the day I also stepped on the scale.

I try not to be a slave to the scale, since I think how my clothes fit me is a much more accurate indicator of my general level of fitness, as well as easier on my psyche. I have a couple of pairs of jeans that I can just barely squeeze into right now. Once I get to the point where they are comfortable to wear and I feel like I look good in them, I'll know I'm about right where I want to be, regardless of what the numbers on the scale read. However, I hop on the scale whenever I make it to the gym, because I'm masochistic like that and we don't have a scale at home.

The result is in the title of the post (you didn't think I'd give you the actual number did you?) The SW stands for "Screwing Weight", which my friend L describes as that weight where you feel really sexy, and well…you get the idea.

SW -- I love it!!! ::snatch::
