AVERAGING DAILY WEIGHTS
There are a lot of people who weigh themselves every day, and a lot who say this isn't good because you fluctuate from day to day, and to get the true picture you should weigh once a week at the same time of day, same clothes, etc.
But.... given the daily fluctuations, suppose this weekly weigh-in catches you in a low or high place?
Enter the Average Weight. This is not my original idea but I'm passing it on.
You weigh yourself daily, which satisfies the urge to keep close track. You write it down. It will be different every day, usually. After a week, you add 'em all up and average 'em out. Then you compare your averages from week to week.
This factors in all those fluctuations from restaurant meals, underhydration, post-race inflammation, taking NSAIDS, etc. Daily fluctuations are not important anymore, they're just part of the whole picture.
I like it.
