When I perform this experiment I expect for my body temperature to be at its lowest in the mornings and rise throughout the day.
While performing this experiment I took my temperature by mouth with a thermometer every hour from the time I awakened and just before going to bed.
When observing the outcome of this experiment it appears that my average temperature was 96.9. During the 2 days my temperature was at its highest of 99.3, its lowest was 95.8 and a range of 3.50.
