"BackOnTrack" - BOT's First Go

Recommended Posts

Hi Nerds! 

I am "BOT" aka BackOnTrack, a Rebel with a cause. 


I am a 44, Mama of 2 nerdboys, married 23 years to the biggest Nerd I could catch.
We live in a small country town in Colorado, a rural gem. I have never been more content and grateful for my bliss and looking to level up life a bit.
My big why am I here at NF? To make some of my flubby blubber vanish, and vanish for good. I am taking the low carb route 'again'.  I do like to work out in so many different ways.  My consistent downfall; lack of consistency, and life's little distractions. I have great support from the Hubz this time and he is definitely losing quicker than me.
That is ok, as long as we can talk about our achievements and focus on goals together. :) He does make it more fun. 
My personal interests, where do I start. I get bored easy, so I have my hands in everything. Hanging out with my boys and my Hubz, Driving into the mountains and backroads with no destination in mind, camping, boating, photography, photoboothing, cooking, painting, drawing, crocheting, gardening, crafting, stained glass, pottery, jewelry making, hiking, HIIT, kettlebells, music concerts, music anything, theatre, Netflix binging, odd jobs, causing chaos and karaoke nights with the gal pals.  And I just bought a violin, so I'll we will see about that later haha.
Nerdier stuff- sci-fi anything, sci-fi-everything, puzzles, chess, board games, clash of clans and I REFUSE to match my socks and I still watch cartoons, now without cereal.
(I still have fond dreams of cocoa Krispies and cinnamon toast crunch, my two long lost loves)
BIG GOAL - Long ish Term
22 lbs down by July 3rd (My anniversary)
WHEN I get there, I win $996 through the HealthyWage game:) Not really a gambler, but I like this cash incentive. 
3 lil goals are to be consistent in these areas: 
*Start everyday with Prayer & Devotional
*Diet, staying 20-30 carbs and under Daily 
*Workouts (30 minutes of increased heart rate) at least 4X per week. 
and 4 - Finish Kason's blanket by March 25
Aiming high goals for 2019:
-Make college shopping a priority for teenfabulous
-1 hour violin practice 4X per week
-1 hour biz practice forum 3X per week & marketing
-Send out more Bday Cards, make more friendly calls-less texts
-More HIKING! 
-This year 2nd new build for the biz
-Save $ Save$ - less Amazon!
-Less Social Media and Netflix 
-Start planning your perfect garden & landscaping
-Laugh a crazy laugh everyday, find something-anything. A deep real gut laugh that brings tears to your eyes. It gives youth and swirls those endorphins
**TO FIX-door, sheetrock, lock, paint poles, paint patio, concrete carport, finish paint in corner & baseboard
I feel inspired by reading all your posts and challenges and hope I can encourage and inspire someone else.

Lots of violin players here!  My current goal is to get 2 hours a week. Then hoping to work my way up to everyday.

Checking in and reevaluating my goals as I am in Week 2. 


I am so happy to record and report that I smashing it daily! 

My days are so much better when I start with prayer and devotionals. 

I get my workouts done early and feel like the day is fresh! 

I have been in ketosis for awhile now with no cheats at all, and my intermittent fasting has moved in from the 14 hour to 16 hour fasting window and it is actually getting easier and easier.  I have completely dived into the Rising Heros missions, joined a squad, and a 12 week fun challenge here in the forum.."Fantastic Beasts" :) Journaling in the battle log has proved to be rewarding.

My goals are pretty much the same, however I am going to have to reduce the 'time' I aim to spend on the violin daily.  I was thinking that an hour a day 4 times a week was attainable...um, nope! Aimed too high there. I'm thinking 20-35 minutes is more realistic, so there.


...and thinking of new ways to step it up:) 


What a week! woohoo!

I would say be careful overwhelming yourself here. I know your doing great and it seems like a great time to add more, but remember you are just starting this challenge. I would give it at least another week before adding anything else. However, if you want, I keep a list on my computer of things I want to work on in future challenges. I always seem to think of new things to add MID challenge but not when I am actually working on a challenge.

Glad things are going well, keep it up.
