I will admit these are semi-bogus weights. Sunday night after paddling 3 hours I weighed 150.2. I was dehydrated and had a low calorie day to make up for a high calorie day on Saturday. But I had a few weigh ins in the low 150s recently with none above 155 in several days. Yesterday I went way over, like double. I have a long paddle today and will probably get back even with low days of consumption today and tomorrow. Anyway, by late in the day I realized how much I was going over and instead of hitting the brakes, I kept at it largely out of curiosity - how much could I weigh this morning? The answer is 160.2!
A lot of what I ate was fruit and ice cream - lots of liquid. Then I had a large serving of a really salty heavy chicken and pasta dish for dinner. The water weight will mostly go away during the paddle this afternoon and (TMI warning) I suspect I will stress the plumbing sometime today. It's not possible for this to have been over a half pound of actual gain, so I am not freaking out about it.
What's your biggest swing? Up or down?
