I AM EastieFit Challenge: Building Healthy Habits at Home

Hello Athletes, 

 

I hope you are doing well and safe. How are you doing? Could you share with me a highlight of your week ? We ordered pieces of furniture that would help us organize and accentuate our living room. We are excited! 

 

I want to share a recap from the education series on “Healthy Habits” that Coach Bryan presented to us on Wednesday night. Here it goes! He is going to host a Q&A session on Zoom tomorrow at 10:30am.

Healthy Habits: How long are you going to wait before you demand the best of yourself? -Epictetus


  • Let’s change the mindset from goals to systems

    • Goals are focused on the outcome. System is focused on the process.

    • Goal vs System

      • You set a goal to lose weight. You go on a diet and lose 10 pounds...for now. If you don’t change your habits you default and gain the weight back again in a month. 

      • You establish better eating habits, so you never have to think about losing weight.

  • Identity: Who do you want to be?

    • Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you want to become.

    • Small habits don’t transform your life overnight, but it establishes the person you want to be.

    • Once you have adopted that identity you are not pursuing behavior change anymore, you are acting in alignment with the type of person you see yourself to be. 

    • Example of obtaining an identity vs. accomplishing a goal

      • The goal is not to run a marathon, it is to become a runner.

      • The goal is not to write a book, it is to become a writer.

      • You are not CJP members, you are CJP athletes.

    • True behavior change is really identity change.

  • Don't break the chain: Consistency is key. 

    • Everyone makes mistakes. You are going to falter once. Never miss twice.

    • “Rome wasn’t built in a day but they were laying bricks every hour.”

  • How to form habits: Environment 

    • Design your environment to make it easier to get started.

    • Often we assume habits are done because of how we feel about something.

    • We often choose to do things simply because it’s in front of us, the environment is designed that way, sitting in a place that is tailored to a certain action.

  • Tie a new habit to an old habit. “Stacking”

    • Think of all the things you do every morning.

      • Ex: I make coffee every morning. While the water is boiling I will meditate.

      • Ex. I make coffee every morning. While it is brewing I will drink 8oz of water.

    • Make the habits as small as possible so you don’t need to rely on motivation.

  • The Power of Intention

    • If something is important to you, then schedule it.

    • Pick a date. Choose a place. Give your goals a time and a space to live.

    • Implement intention.

      • “During the next week I will partake in 20 minutes of vigorous exercise on (DAY) at (TIME) at/in (PLACE).”

How long are you going to wait before you demand the best of yourself?

Here is the challenge. Are you up for it? We will support you along the way. 

What is the Challenge? I AM EastieFit 

A 4-week challenge designed to help you to create healthy habits that will increase your quality of life and empower you to adopt an identity that will strengthen your connection to your mind, fitness, nutrition, and sleep.

This is the chance to prove you are truly EastieFit!

Who is the challenge for?

This challenge is for current and past athletes (and coaches!) in the CrossFit Jeffries Point community, as well as friends, family, and neighbors that are new to CJP.

The challenge is for those who are looking to take their well-being and fitness health to the next level. They are people who are not using this current situation as an excuse but rather as an opportunity to focus on their physical and mental health.

This challenge is for those that want coaching and support to put their health first and to be held accountable for their actions. 

How does it work?

  1. Athletes will focus on ONE healthy habit per week and track success using the MyCoach app.

  2. Athletes will receive daily lessons, encouragement, resources, and messages through the MyCoach app.

  3. Points are awarded by successfully completing your daily habits, class attendance, and other tasks.

  4. Winners will be announced at the end of the challenge.
