I am back and I'm determined to get my life back on track. I need to get my life in order before I get used to all the bad habits I've fallen into throughout the years. So, without further ado- WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA: Lifelong goal: to be confident in the body I'm in so I can be the made-of-awesome person I am 5 or so years out: To have some serious muscles A year or so from today: Have the physical capability to do a set of five pull-ups and finally own and confidently wear a bikini A LITTLE ABOUT ME: I'm a college student with only a few years left in school. I really fell off the wagon this past year out on my own. I'm working through the summer, but I want to start building habits so when classes start up I don't get worse. Nerd-wise, I love Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Supernatural, Nerdfighteria, among a few other things. LET'S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS: Since everything I've read on Nerdfitness emphasises simplicity, I'm going to stick to three overarching goals for the challenge, increasing the willpower needed to stick with it as things go on. They shall be as follows- Exercise +5 mins/ day every week! This one is pretty simple, I currently do not exercise, so I need to change that and get the momentum moving. So for week one, I'll aim to workout for 5 mins every day and then add 5 mins every week. I may add a bit of strength training later in the challenge, but no promises One paleo change/ week! I may not ever go full paleo (I'm from the dairy state, it's kinda hard to completely eliminate cheese. But limit, sure) but I know I need to adapt more of the concepts into my life. These will be cumulitave throughout the challenge. For week one, my challenge is to have one meal a day that has no grains. Spend +5 mins/ day every week in God-time! This is for my spiritual health, because I know I need to work on this. If I'm going to level up my life, I'm not going to be able to keep it together without my God and my faith. (Disclaimer: I am a religious person that will force my beliefs or otherwise condemn a person because they don't believe the same thing as me.)THE BIGGEST OBSTACLES: The big issue I face is not having any person to hold me accountable and cheer me on. So if there's someone out there who also needs an accountabilibuddy, let me know. Smaller challenges are getting this whole thing started while I'm at home and adjusting to a new job in the next few weeks. A side note- I can be really horrible about checking in on these forms, so I'm also starting a tumblr to record my overall journey. So if you have a tumblr and want to follow me, let me know!
