Day 378: Breaking News...Andrew Has Blown My Cover!


Thank you Shredders for your guesses on where I'll be on Day 500. Andrew, Debbie, Suzette and Sammy were very very close by saying New York City (actually half-right!)

But even cooler there were so many great ideas for future holidays like the Bahamas (from Raiden), Hawaii (from Lilla), Florida (from Miriam), Disneyland! (from Christy) and even Spain (perhaps a cardio workout with Lynda, running with the bulls!)

Redemption 2.0 Coming Soon...

I have actually been seriously thinking about doing Redemption 2.0 to Hawaii (like I did with Phuket) because I have a lot "before photos" taken there from 2003, if you know what I mean!

Lilla, do you know where in Hawaii this is?

Shredder Redemption?

Actually Shredders, if you have "before" pictures from a previous vacation that you'd like to "redeem" then maybe you could do your own "Redemption Trip".

Like you can see below this was an extremely powerful motivator for me over Mission 2 that pushed me to the limit (in a good way!) and enabled me to take this "before and after" picture at the same spot in Phuket.

A Shredder Council Board Meeting!

And even cooler still was the suggestion by Suzette and Joni to hold the first Shredder Council Convention! That would be "off the Richter scale"! We could even hire a boardroom and have a Shredder Council board meeting!

Breaking News...

Just minutes before I planned to go "live" with this blog post Andrew nailed it! I will be heading straight for New Jersey (via San Francisco and New York!) once I hit the United States.

So, Why New Jersey?

As NJ will be freezing cold in March its safe to say that this ain't a beach vacation! So I guess the question now is, why New Jersey? Anyone care to take a stab...

Until tomorrow...

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG

Adam Waters, NESTA-CPT

P.S. I got in a great cardio workout tonight and surprised myself by hitting the same numbers I hit in the last few weeks before the end of Mission 3. A rest really does wonders as long as it stays under 2 weeks I believe.

Below are Day 378 pictures for November 21, 2007: Mission 4 - Day 3 of 125.

P.S.S.S. As you can also see I still have lighting issues with this new camera. Its really difficult to get consistent lighting for some reason, even though I am using the same settings.


Debbie said...

Adam - a few guesses.

1) you're meeting up with tom venuto or nick nillson

2) money is burning a hole in your pocket and you're headed to atlantic city for some gambling

3) you're a big tony soprano fan

btw: did you know the Arnold Classic Bodybuilding Expo is Feb 29-Mar 2 in Columbus, Ohio?


Joni said...

Yeah, I think this has something to do with Tom Venuto as well. And then, of course, coming to visit me because I live 45 min from NJ :)

Your Grateful Cyber-friend, Christy said...

Oh Snap! Joni you I feel like you just won the Price is Right. You are the closest to Adam's vacation (without going over.) You guys should totally meet AND post a video on the blog.

My guess: Adam's competing in either a Body Building Competition or an Iron Man.

BTW, I'm thinking RTP Shredder cruise or Vegas getaway package. lol

Your Grateful Cyber-friend, Christy said...

Debbie! Haha you were googling like me, too. I knew it was and was disappointed the dates didn't match up. It's 100 Days from yesterday. lol

Got to be Tommy V

Marbella said...

Gee Whiz Adam! Why go to New Jersey of all places!! (please forgive me you NJerseyians). Gotta have a big reason to do that, so am thinking they are going to do a TV show, or maybe a movie on you. (Oprah, Donald Trump, PlayBoy) Something important that only can be done there (remember there are tons of movie companies in Spain...) This is something extra special for you to come all the way from Japan. Don´t you need a whole bunch of Shredder´s to be there to be background...we could sing some, dance some, give it a big GO Adam Waters!!! Just let us know and we´ll all be there.
(darn...running with bulls is much more fun than anything in NJ). :-)

Raiden said...

It just has to be going to see Mr. BFFM himself. He is in New Jersey. You should see if you can try out the Quad Blaster that he has. Apparently it can make grown men cry. I can just see the meeting now though, it'll be like Stephen Colbert meeting Bill O'Reilly. Well, us North American's might get that reference...Wayne Gretzky meeting Gordie Howe? Hmm, what's a good international reference? Harry Potter meets Dumbledore?

Kristiina said...

As said before the reason is Tom, because he has the Fitness Renaissance in a beutiful place called Hoboken NJ.

We'll be expecting lots of pics :)

Lilla said...

Hey, I was right! You ARE coming to be my personal trainer! I was born and raised in New Joisey. My whole family lives there and I still own a condo in Montclair. What part of NJ will you be in? I may be visiting for the holidays. Joni, you and I should meet up and anyone else on the East Coast!

p.s. Are you on the Big I in your Hawaii picture?

p.s.s. Jersey gets a bum rap.There are some beautiful places there. Enjoy your stay!

p.s.s.s. Thumbs up for Hawaii Redemption 2.0!

Tearose said...

A Redemption trip is a great idea! For me I need a Redemption Summer! This Summer is supposed to be my Redemption summer, but I don't know if I have enough time, we'll see!

I had no idea where you might be going lol.

Sammy said...

OMG! I guess you'll be meeting Tom venuto or nick nilson... Oh man if that is true I'm so envious. You gotta take pictures man!

Lilla said...

OK - I have actual proof of where Adam is! Check out my post on November 21st.

Your Grateful Cyber-friend, Christy said...

Holy smokes Lilla! You totally nailed it. It's like you're psychic.

People, you must check out Lilla's video this instant.

Especially a certain Texan and certain Aussie who both will remain nameless.

Marbella said...

I cannot believe you were there filming the whole TRIP! Since it was just a practice day getting ready for the BIG RACE, I didn´t think anyone would check it out.

Hey ADAM, don´t miss going to Lilla´s blog of November 21st! Not to be missed. You are a star!!

And LILLA, you are soo fabulous. My best Thanksgiving present!


Alex said...

You're right, guys! Adam will be meeting Tom Venuto and Adam will be participating in the Arnold Classic Competition as it is scheduled on March 1.


Adam Waters said...

Hi Debbie, No.1 is correct! I didn't know about the Arnold, maybe 2009!

Adam Waters said...

Spot on Joni!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Christy, an RTP Shredder Cruise?! That would be awesome!

Adam Waters said...

WOW Lynda! You are thinking BIG! Yes to Oprah and Donald, Playboy? Not in a million years!

How cool was Lilla's video! We gotta do that one day, a Shredder Council Bull Run!


Adam Waters said...

Spot on Raiden! TV has already said he will test me out on the Quad Blaster! Measured doses of quadricrep brutality!


Adam Waters said...

Right on Kristiina, man I didn't think this would be so easy to guess!

Adam Waters said...

Wow Lilla! From Jersey to Hawaii! Yeah, I'm on the Big One in Hawaii, that was Waikiki 03!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Tearose, you can definitely make a "redemption trip" by summer judging by your pic! Go for it!

Adam Waters said...

There will be pictures galore Sammy!

Adam Waters said...

Lilla your video is "off the charts" funny and cool. I was at work when I watched and people around me wondered why I suddenly broke out in hysterics! You should have seen it!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Alex, Arnold Classic?! Now that would be totally insane pressure!

James said...

I'll just post this here, just to say, wow great site real inspiration. Thanks


Your Grateful Cyber-friend, Christy said...

Adam, know that you are missed tonight! I'm hoping you are catching up on some rest or having fun. You deserve both so much. I hope everything is good at RTP headquarters. I'm trying not to worry. :)

Adam Waters said...

Thanks Christy, I just finished today's blog post. I was so blown away by everyone's response it took me a few hours to figure out what to write!

I gotta get some sleep now!
