Exclamation whoa whoa H2O - what's happening??!!

So I stop working, start eating 3 a day at home (no more vending machine), starting slow on workouts...

I have gained nearly five pounds!!

Now, I have done some reading and know that I could be retaining water as my body adjusts to work outs. I need to up my water too...

How much do you drink? It just isn't my favorite and it will be a new habit to learn...tips or tricks welcome!

Someone tell me this is normal...even if you have to lie to me!

Are your workouts making you sore? If they are, expect that your muscles are pulling in water to help with the repair process. I have always gained 5+ pounds the week I start a new workout program as my body adjusts.

the scale went crazy as soon as I started heavy weight workouts....i'm not sure if it's ever calmed down because I finally had to stop weighing because while I could SEE a difference in my body, the scale was making me mentally crazy

Hey i've copied this off of a website i use it's a very rough idea of what your water intake should be around, for a better idea of your daily intake of fluids it's best to use an online calculator as it measures several different things to give you a very close answer,

So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day
