‘Twas the night before BootCamp….

***Have a good holiday season!!  Hope you find the little diddy below entertaining before you head off to parts unknown!  –posted by foxbehungry–*** ‘Twas the night before BootCamp and all through the house, nothing was stirring, not even a mouse. But then the phone rang at 9pm and it was one of my crew, turns … Continued

Accidental Holiday Binging Anyone?

The holidays are surrounding us on all sides, and along with holidays come all sorts of parties to celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice and New Year’s Day(also for a little added random knowledge, January 1st is also considered the birthday of every competition race horse in the northern hemisphere).  In addition to those traditional … Continued

What do you want out of BootCampSF? 32/30s are my goal!

Why?  Why do we do it?  Why on earth do we drag ourselves outside to exercise with our fellow BootCampSF-ers when we could be out eating or drinking or sleeping?? Each of us have our own goal.  For me, the goal is to reach the weight I was before I met my fiancee. [Beginning of … Continued

Jumping Rope isn’t Just for Kids or Boxers!

A couple of years ago I picked up a jump rope for the first time in over a decade.  I was jumping super high to make sure I got over the rope, jumping off both feet because if I didn’t I surely wouldn’t get into a rhythm and my arms were moving in large cirlces … Continued

The Sun Shines on Munday!

***posted by foxbehungry*** Yay!!  Daylight savings has come and gone and the morning BootCampSF-ers may still see the stars and the moon at 6am, but by 6:30 the sun is out and headlamps are no longer needed.  If any of you are morning runners, now is a great time.  If you are a late afternoon … Continued

99% in one serving?? [nothing to do with Wall Street]

***posted by foxbehungry*** 99% saturated fat.  Twenty grams.  In one serving!!  I’ve never seen that before.  I’m sure I’ve eaten that much before without even knowing.  Maybe at a bbq or a carnival (who can resist funnel cake or deep fried items like twinkles, candy bars and of course, chicken).  But never before have I … Continued

Thoughts from a 6am-er

Note:  The events depicted below may not have happened exactly as described, but they did happen exactly as remembered.  Or it could be a mixture of many mornings.  My alertness level and ability to retain memory are not at their peak levels between 5:30am and 7am.  All thoughts are actual thoughts I’ve had during class … Continued

Mission 32/30: 6 weeks down, how many left to go??

After one 6 week session I wasn’t sure if I’d actually made any progress.  I’ve heard good things from friends and fellow bootcampers, but for the most part I think they like me so I just figured they were being nice.  I’ve heard I look like I’m melting and that I appear “thinner in the … Continued

Mission 32/30: Coupons and sales can lead to bad food choices

Almost 5 weeks into Mission 32/30 and I must admit that I have not made much progress.  I weigh the same (plus or minus half a pound… okay more like plus) and my pants feel the same.  The fact that I’m the same weight is a testament to BootcampSF workouts countering some of my bad … Continued
