We cannot be fanatic. We can be faithful. Your approach to doing Nitnaym is fine. You are sincere in wanting to do it daily, and you make every effort to do it daily. Life happens. Sometimes despite our best efforts, we cannot get to nitnaym. Do your best. It is not a 'sin' and you do not have to be baptized again and start over. Your commitment is strong and will grow with your sincere attention and practice. What will then happen is that your life will settle itself around your practice, and you will find that you miss nitnaym less and less.
PS: A number of Sikhs use the time in an airplane to read nitnaym, or use bani recordings and recite while driving. It is not the ideal situation, but it is better than not reciting Nitnaym at all.
