Water retention stress

Water retention from working out bothers me to the extent that it makes me feel like exercising less, does anyone else feel like this and do you have any tips please?

    I find both weight lifting & cardio to be helpful. Also, I incorporate lots of vegetables with diuretic like properties into my diet (asparagus, cabbage, parsley). Then there's caffeine of course. Vasodilation from the heat gets to me in the summer from all the blood pooling & inability to properly redistribute said blood..keep cool.

    It doesn't bother me in the slightest. I usually laugh at the crazy fluctuations I can see depend on point in my cycle, sodium load and trainin volume.

    The only time that any actual significance is attached to the number on the scale is the last month before a comp big enough that I have to make sure of making weight. Other than that, I attach far more significance to the weight on my bar than the weight of my body.
