Of course! I retain up to 8 pounds of water. Take some midol if you can and just drink extra water.

Hard workouts will also make you retain water, generally.  Your muscles will retain water to rebuild/repair from the workout.  So definitely the combination of PMS and an intense workout, you’re definitely retaining water.

Yup! Usually during my TOM the scale goes up 1-2 pounds.

I usually retain water a week before my period and during my period so I know I can gain anywhere from 3-8lbs depending on water weight, which is so damn annoying especially when trying to keep a diet and work out regime….but I just remember that it’s not me, okay it’s me, but it’s my body betraying my efforts..lol…
