This week saw a slight uptick in the scale, but I’m not worried about it. I ate a bit more salt yesterday than I normally do, and I also increased my carb intake this week to prep for yesterday’s race. I’m pretty sure that the glycogen I stored is binding some of the water I’m holding on to. Also, as one of my MFP friends pointed out, it’s possible that the workout I did yesterday caused my muscles to be holding on to some fluid as well. Regardless of what it was that caused the slight gain, this week I’m cutting back to my usual 50 grams or less of carbs, and keeping my protein intake high as usual.
