Getting in Shape with Bender Ball

Part II – The Exercise Program

Posted on: February 2, 2010

Last week, I started offering hints for how to begin a new exercise program.  Now, once you’ve seen your doctor and thought of an exercise routine that you think fits your personality, it’s time to get started.  Here’s what you should consider.

1. Don’t think – just do!  Once you’ve decided that you are ready to join a gym, or you’re willing to try out a Bender Ball for 5 minutes a day, or you bought running shoes and want to walk each day – just do it!  Don’t think about it or talk about it anymore.  Just get out there and start.

2. Set realistic goals – Now, you need to be gentle and realistic with yourself.  Don’t assume that you’ll exercise six days a week for one hour.  Create realistic goals and try to stick to them, gently in the beginning.

3. Chart it – Keep a chart of your progress, writing down how long you worked out, what exercise you did, and how you felt afterwards.  Hopefully, this will show you how you are building up your stamina and changing along the way.
