congrats, you are two weeks into bootcamp and if you are reading this blog, chances are you still coming to class everyday(or close to it)!
now that two weeks are done, i’ve got a question for you… how’s that food log going? if you are like me, you are facing a few problems. one, you can’t find your food log. two, you can’t remember what you ate through the day. three, that food log we get on the first day is spaced so tinily that it only fits breakfast. four, when you do remember you are slightly ashamed at what you ate for the day (hello accidental 3 pieces of fried chicken for breakfast).
whatever your reasons are, sometimes it’s tough to keep an accurate log. i have two options for you: facebook and twitter.
facebook is generally public and all your friends can see what you eat as you post it. the only problem is whether or not knowing people will see your log will keep you from reporting your food accurately. positing on facebook could be a positive if it helps you not eat that extra cookie(or five), for example “that chicken fried steak looks like it would be yummy as a dessert after dinner… but darnit, i’ll have to post it on facebook. guess i’ll stick with an apple.”
for those of you are that are shy like me, i find twitter is the best bet. unless you have people following you (that is up to you), twitter can be your own private food log. if you feel like sharing with me or directly with bootcamp, feel free to add us(@foxbehungry and @bootcampsf). i personally love seeing what other people are eating and also as a bonus, if you see what i’m eating you will probably think “at least i’m eating better than that guy!”
below is an example of what my food tweets look like. i’m a big fan of waiting till the end of the day to post what i eat, but if you have time, after every meal is good too as you can keep a log of when you eat along with what you eat.
and if you have a droid or iphone, you can download a twitter or facebook app so that you can never use the excuse of not having your paper food log on you!
hope you get a chance to try the “Eat and Tweet.”
have a good one and “see you outside!”
p.s. i’m not sure if it’s taro or tarot. and cib = carnation instant breakfast. twitter teaches you to abbreviate as much as possible when you try to cram a days’ worth of eating in one post.
welcome to the BootCampSF blog (BCSF blog)!
as you can see, the BCSF blog was up and running in 2008 and went on a short hiatus of a little over 2.5 years. fast forward to today friday, june 3rd of the bootcampsf friendly year of 2011!! woooohooooo!!
please visit this site often as tips and stories about food and exercise will be posted on at least a weekly basis (hopefully much more!). pictures and videos to follow as well. if you have comments or questions feel free to post them here or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
what or who is foxbehungry you ask? well that would be me! i’m a fellow bootcamper like you. this is my second session and so far so good. i’m no professional athlete, just your garden variety san franciscan who wants to get into shape without having to become dependent on an indoor gym for exercise while at the same time getting to experience san francisco like never before. and by that i don’t mean anything deep and spiritual, just that it’s nice to be in golden gate park at 6am, almost on the verge of being wide awake as opposed to stumbling through the park on no sleep and waiting for the hangover to come in a few hours time…. at least that is what i hear some people do. not me. never.
anyways, so why the name foxbehungry? well the behungry part is easy, i’m kind of always hungry. even after eating a couple of doublecheeseburgers and thinking that i am full, if someone were to offer me a slice of pizza i would not say no to that slice (or french fries if they just happen to be around as well). as or the fox part, it’s not cuz i’m super good looking(just moderately so) or that i’m sly, clever or that i swipe things(cultural reference to the villain of the dora explorer show). it just so happens that it is my middle name. ta-da! sorry if that was anticlimactic.
so there you go the first post of the newly restarted BCSF blog. see below for more ways to contact us. we’ll do our best to provide information and be entertaining!
thanks and have a good evening!
