Your weight does fluctuate throughout the day. If I’m reading you correctly, you’re saying that your weight was higher the same day?
Generally, it’s best to weigh yourself at the same time of day and under the same circumstances in order to get the best sense of your weight (and even then, if you weigh every day you’ll see fluctuations that don’t necessarily indicate a trend).
For me, I always take my weight on first waking up, AFTER using the bathroom but before eating or drinking anything or putting on any clothing.
If I weigh myself later in the day, after eating and with more clothing on, I’m obviously “heavier”.
I would say yes, that’s likely. And if you have just started working out, you may see weight gain before weight loss.
I know muscle is denser than fat, and sometimes muscle gain starts before fat loss catches up. So you might see some weight gain for a couple of days before it starts normalizing out. I’m not an expert, but that’s what I’ve been told, so I wouldn’t worry about it unless the upward trend continues for a week or more.
Think you are right …
I consumed 3 x water bottles full ( each is about 750ml ) and although I was sweating … I don’t think I sweat THAT much ??
Equates to just over 2 litres of water which is approx 4.4lb …
That ‘works out’ about right (see the pun there)
Let’s see my usual time weigh ins and see the results …
Each to their own method I suppose …,
I feel fitter, sleeping better, not snacking and generally feel good
Calorific intake is lower than I need, but on gym days or cycling days I up my intake by 300 calories (one shake) IF I feel I need to.
I have my own routine but sometimes push myself using the pyramid system to almost exhaustion on that muscle group … tho I feel silly struggling with the 5kg weight at the end !
It may not be correct but I feel it works for me !
Similarly with cycling, I have a set route which I add a little bit to if I feel energetic. It’s not fast but an enjoyable riverside towpath ride, even enjoyable in the rain.
A tip for everyone … do something you enjoy (walking, running, cycling, hiking or whatever) and you won’t feel it’s a chore getting exercise
And occasionally push yourself a little further/harder
