I definitely was in a “box” when it came to exercise. Running, push ups, sit ups, etc. were things that I have not done in a very long time (especially running) and would have never done them on my own. Due to the running, I wanted to quit after the first day of bootcamp, but one of the trainers, Chaney, encouraged me to not give up and guaranteed that I would get better. With support from her and the other trainers, I kept trying. I have learned that a huge part of the ability to do these exercises comes from the “right attitude.” So, I am working toward ignoring my “in box can’t do this” attitude and am now learning that an “out of box I will try this, do my very best, and know that with practice I can get better” attitude will help me be successful. A great quote from Julian on “Biggest Loser” helps me with this choice of “out of the box” attitude: “Why would you choose failure when success is an option!?!”

Yes constantly trying new things. I now do workouts outside boot camp that I never did before, because I do boot camp Zumba class for one. If it were not for all the running and jummping in boot Ide have a real hard time in there. I say do what you can do and then you can do what you want to do!

My outside of the box has been running faster, I have always ran at the same pace, about 10-12 min per mile, I am now running about 8 min per mile. Also, on the cardio days, I started doing other very out of the box activities such as dance lessons including: zumba, flamenco and ballet. My next challenge is kickboxing, I have never done it and I am planning to start taking it very soon 🙂

My “step outside of the box” inspiration came when I realized that not only am I not taking good care of myself, but my son also. So I have had to rethink how the whole family should eat and exercise. This was reinforced by my dad’s recent heart attack. So I am pushing myself to do more at boot camp. I took Julie’s advice and did the 1.1 mile loop even though I would have to walk a little bit. I am also trying to do the planks and pillar bridges on my toes instead of my knees. I realize that these are baby steps, but they are steps in the right direction.

I have eaten very healthy food for many years. But I grew up in a time when we were told to get “three square meals a day”. So for me, the Get You in Shape suggestion of keeping the body fueled with several smaller meals and snacks is “out of the box”. This keeps my energy level higher throughout the day!

We all have our own confort level. I know that in order for things to change, I must change. This helps me constantly be trying to do what I don’t want to do. When it come to running a service oriented business, I have to constantly try to think “outside the box” to help our clients get the most out of the Get You In Shape “experience”. We are blessed to get to help people change their lives but the behind the scenes things are when I have to “step outside of the box”. I have to do many things that I have never done before and learn how to do things I am not good at. I am in my element, confort level, or “BOX” being able to lead the boot camps.

Come on, share what’s you feel the “box” is for you.

Not that I am in for the prize, but something I have started telling everyone — particularly as it pertains to our timed run as we did on Wednesday… if you have been doing the .6 for a while now, just try the 1.1 — EVEN if you have to walk part of the way. Create a timed baseline and you will see it quickly improve.

Right now I am ‘getting outside my box” by staring the 24 day challenge for the 1st time. the thing that has always scared me away was having to give up my coffee! But—-no more, today i started and I am on the way to improving my eating habits! Goodbye coffee!!
