For the last 3 or 4 weeks I've been doing handweights everyday, I've really noticed a difference in my arms already. 5 days ago I started using my step machine, nothing too strenuous, I'm not getting achey muscles in my legs the day afterwards, so I know I'm not hugely working the muscles, but working enough to get a sweat on. I'm just wondering, is this little bit of exercise really going to cause me to retain water in my muscles? I've not lost any weight at all since tuesday, is the increased exercise likely to be the reason? I know I had a huge loss this week so maybe my body is reacting to that and the exercise and going into shutdown lol!
