The Time is Now.


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm new the NF community. My name is Jason, I live in KC, MO. I'm finally going back to school (29 years old). I'm currently an online college student working towards a Bachelor's Degree in Network Administration. I'm a total nerd when it comes to technology and playing video games. I'm also a huge sports fan. I'm not quite sure yet which guild I will be part of after this first challenge, still thinking on that. 


 


 


Main Quest:


-Lose weight and add strength while getting my weight down to 180. 


 


Goals:


-Do a total of 15 AngryBirds bodweight workouts


-Do a total of 15 cardio workouts


-Continue not eating fast food, drinking pop, or eating sugary candy


 


Life Side Quest:


-Complete all my college classes in my current term (ends at the end of February and still have 2 papers to write and a test to take) and hit the ground running in the next term so I'm not cramming at the very end.


 


Motivation:


-Tired of being slower than others on the basketball court


 


 


Now I need to go work on my signature. Any pointers on making it look super cool like some on here would be appreciated.

I'm also completely new to NF. Newbies unite! XD Just like Wells said, we can totally do this!

 

Just as a tip, try 'cramming' at the beginning of the semester (taking care not to stress yourself) and the final section of class will be SO much more enjoyable. You punch procrastination in the face by doing that!  :playful:

Also a newbie, nice to meet you, really just had to stop in because I had to tell you, your topic name will make me have to listen to Moloko EVERY TIME I see it, I already know xDD

 

Had the same experience, saw the name of the title and sang the song in my head! :D Love that song! It's stuck in my brain right now!

The time is now, let's do this!   Time to get off to a great start on Day 1.  I will be working on my life side quest all day today trying to get a paper done for English.  I will be doing my bodyweight workout later today.    

 

 

GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!

@Waanie & Bluecarfuffle  glad to have you 2 on the Accountabilibuddies squad with me!    How is this going to work?  Do we just check in on each others threads to give motivation and see how we are doing.   Looks like we have another member Cargo Crabs in with us too.
