Internal Debate

Today I'm having a bit of an internal debate I thought I'd share. I took a trip this past weekend, and had lots of manual labor going on. I picked up a small pizza Saturday night, and this morning I'm up approximately 3 lbs from the weight I was at prior to leaving on Friday.

Intellectually I know this is typical for me - I can usually expect 2-3 lbs of water weight after eating pizza - especially if I've not drunk enough water. I didn't drink a whole lot of water yesterday knowing I'd be driving.

So normally prior to a weigh in if I was holding water weight I would drink copious amounts of water (to flush out the bloat) and if I had any flexies or APs left over I wouldn't use them - and I'd certainly not eat anything heavy prior to bed knowing I plan to weigh in tomorrow morning.

I'm tossing around the idea of just treating today like a normal day and letting the chips fall where they may tomorrow. I have eaten all of my APs but I still have my 49 flexies left. I also have a regular #8 from Jersey Mike's that I was planning to eat for dinner tonight. Hmmm... what to do.

Can I deal with being (most likely) up tomorrow even though I know it's water weight?

I'm not sure. I think so though.

See, that's where you are a so much stronger person than I. I would be skipping the weigh in altogether -- and probably ordering another pizza!

LOL! I finally decided on compromise. I picked up my jersey mike's sandwich at lunch and am eating it FOR lunch... for dinner something a tad (but not much) lighter, some extra water today (though not copious amounts) and then weigh in like usual tomorrow morning.
