Reunion Readiness Health and Fitness Program
Do you know that the #1 reason people do not attend reunions is because of their weight?
That is not going to happen to you this year! You are going to take control now so you can be excited for those fun summer reunions.
This is not a quick fix crash diet campaign. This is a lifestyle program intended to create lifelong changes that get you to your best you by the summer and beyond!
This is also going to be a simple plan to follow. Life is complex enough already, so let’s keep it simple. We will make small changes and reap big rewards.
This is also a peer support and accountability program. Those that commit to the program by RSVP are encouraged to post comments on the program wall. Use the wall to post questions to the others, celebrate successes in your plan, offer suggestions for things that work for you and create healthy competition.
Each 30 days I will give you a few lifestyle changes to incorporate into your daily routine. These steps may be more challenging for some and easier for others. Feel free to adjust the plan according to your current health and fitness level, but make sure you are pushing yourself beyond your current comfort level!
- Commit to the challenge by joining the Facebook Group Reunion Readiness Health and Fitness Program. If you can’t find it, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for a group invite.
- If you haven’t done so in the last 12 months – schedule a physical with your doctor
- So we have a starting measure, send me the following information (trust me, I will not judge and I promise to keep this info confidential!):
- Your height
- Current weight
- Chest, waist, hips, thighs and bicep measurements
- Your 30-day goal for how many INCHES you want to lose – notice the goal is on inches lost and not weight lost. I won’t be asking you for your weight again for several months. I even suggest you ask a loved one to hide the scale from you for now. The goal of this challenge is to become more fit, which includes building muscle and losing fat. Muscle weighs more than fat, yet is takes up less space. Read more here: War of Muscle Vs. Fat
- Schedule at least 3 days a week to workout. Put the days on your calendar right away. The type of fitness program you choose is up to you. Be sure you incorporate aerobic activity and weight resistance training into your routine. If you like to workout at home, checkout the various home fitness programs I offer through Beachbody here: www.beachbodycoach.com/HAPPYCOACH
- Get a pedometer and set a goal to get at least 6,000 steps in a day for the first 30 days. The eventual goal will be 10,000 a day.
- Eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and two small snacks (about 100 – 150 calories) between meals. You may find this to be the most challenging part the whole plan. Here are a few suggestions for you: You Have to Eat, So Plan Ahead.
- Make healthy food choices by adding more veggies and fruits to your meals and reduce the white stuff like potatoes, pasta, and bread.
- Practice portion control. Learn to know when you are full and when to push the plate away. Read more here: Take a Break and Evaluate
- Drink eight glasses of water a day (more if you are working up a heavy sweat during your workouts). Goal here is to stay hydrated.
- Get your vitamins. No matter how well we eat, we really cannot get all of the nutrients we need through food alone. At a minimum, you should take a high quality daily multi-vitamin. Your doctor can help you determine other supplements you may need.
There you go – 10 things for you to do this first 30 days. These are the bare minimum necessities for creating a healthy and fit lifestyle.

Keep me posted on your progress throughout the month! I will be doing the same steps as you as I have my own goals for my 25-year high school reunion this year. I am here to help and encourage you along the way!
Let’s make 2010 the year of positive change!
