Audio volume varies with inserted edited audio

Hello... and thanks in advance for help anyone can offer

I tend to get tongue tied as I record videos and I've found myself editing out those sections of audio where I stumble for words.  I'll edit those sections out and re-recording them till they seems professional.  The problem I've been seeing is a lack of consistence with the volume of the re-recorded audio.  At times (Not always) it seems to be louder than the original audio.  

When the video gets to the audio edit... It seems like there's a noticeable difference in volume between two audio sections.  When I click on them to verify the volume, they're identical.  I'll have to lower the volume on the re-recorded portion to make it seems like it matches the original.  I don't think I'm speaking in a louder voice and I've tried to keep my mic (I'm using a Logitech H600 headset) at the same distance the whole time.

I'm not sure if there's a solution to this problem... Other than to continue to adjust the volume of the audio as it occurs.  Could someone suggest any solutions for this or offer their guidance?

Once again... thanks!

If you havr camtasia 9, there is an audio feature where tou can normalize the audio, which brings everything selected to the same volume. Hope this helps!

Try this,

Select all the audio tracks at the same time to highlight them. Then apply Audio leveling.
You can control the amount of leveling from the properties panel to all tacks at the same time.If there's a track that's way off you may want to target it individually.

Keith, 

Here's an old radio, voiceover trick I use: Whenever I stumble on a word or phrase while recording, I continue recording, but stop for a second, say "pause", and then start the sentence, word or phrase over. That way you're still recording with the same dynamics and settings as the phrase you just stumbled over.  And then, I just continue recording.

Afterwards, it's easy to find and edit out the section where you stumble and say "pause". Plus, I find I don't have any "audio leveling" to do.
