5ksandcabernets: Water-logged!


Tuesday, April 1, 2008


I've heard of gaining weight because of water retention, but this is ridiculous. I was 166 pounds when I stepped on the scale Monday morning. This morning: 170.
It was 5:30 a.m. and so I was a little groggy, up early to run with the Luke's Locker group. So I got off the scale. Adjusted it. Got back on. 170.
I went to the bathroom and got back on the scale. 170.
What the #%&*@#*
How can this be? Four pounds in one day?
I thought back to what I ate Monday: A glass of soy milk in the morning. A sandwich and soup from Panera Bread for lunch. Some sourdough pretzels and chocolate moth balls for a mid-afternoon snack. Some chicken noodle soup for dinner with a glass of wine. A cinnamon roll for dessert. A cup of hot tea sweetened with blackstrap molasses before I went to bed.
This hardly looks like a feast for a King.
After my 6-mile tempo run (in 48:54), I got back on the scale. 166.
But I know better. You are always lighter after a run because of the water you lose through perspiration.
If anybody has an idea of how I can gain four pounds of water in one day, let me know.

I didn't try to send an e-mail back to the future, but I spent a good five minutes trying to figure out how Gmail Custom Time might benefit me. So I got punk'd, too.
But at least I didn't really believe that Pizza Hut was changing its name.
