Broke Even On Another Cold Day

Day 110

Both my starting and ending weigh-ins today showed 77.1 kg. That means I broke even exactly.

Yesterday was difficult because of the snow and cold. And I lost very little weight during the 90-minute run. Despite that, I did lose a lot of weight overnight and somehow lost .1 kg for the day. It’s below 0 again today. So the same problems on Day 109 may persist on Day 110.

I started the run at 77.8kg and got down to only 77.1 kg. Just like yesterday, I did a 90-minute run and lost only .7 kg (about 1.5 pounds) during the session. And also like yesterday, it was literally freezing. I do mean literally, as it was -5 degrees Celsius yesterday and -3 degrees Celsius today. This is the lowest amount of weight loss I have ever tracked for a 90-minute run since devising my Pentamize system. However, it’s now the lowest amount 2 days in a row.

While I have experienced a little bit lower weight loss during these runs since winter hit, this is the worst. However, it has been at least a little above freezing on most of those days. So it could be that the fact that it’s now literally freezing that is causing me to lose less during the 90-minute runs the past 2 days.

I thought things were going great when I finished eating for the day and was 77.8 kg. And I went to the bathroom and lost a bit more, getting down to 77.7 kg. Unfortunately, my weight just didn’t drop much at all overnight. I ended up losing about .6 kg when sleeping, including going to the bathroom. This is lower than it has been lately. I can’t guess why. However, after that small overnight drop, I was still 77.1 kg. And that made for a breakeven day. So it’s not really bad news. Even in full weight-loss mode, a minority of my days with long runs resulted in a breakeven day or even a small weight gain. So this is bound to happen from time to time. However, it does mean that it’s time to work out hard again on Day 111.
