Day 495: M4 Shred - 84 Day Report Card

G'day Shredders,

This will be a very quick post today because I got a plane to catch!

It All Started On Christmas Day 2007

Back on Day 412: M4 Shred Starts Now (December 25, 2007) I started my new Real-Time Accountability Strategy of posting my daily schedule which included meals, workouts, mental training and journaling.

M4 Shred Parameters

I promised I would give myself a Compliance Score (COM) out of 10 for each of the 84 days until Day 495 (today) with the dual goal of making a physique transformation and holding myself externally accountable.

Why I Kicked Off On Christmas Day

In retrospect kicking off the M4 Shred on Christmas Day was the best thing I could have done because it was symbolic of ingraining the self-discipline I would need for the M4 Shred as I promised to myself to avoid all junk food over Christmas and the New Year period (which I did) and to make sure I got in my pre-scheduled training.

My Stomach Was Churning

I also knew that implementing RTA was the only way I was going to get my game in order for M4 Training Day with Tom Venuto because I was in a very stagnant state around this time. My stomach was literally churning every second of every day (still is!) in anticipation of this Day 500 Training Session with Tom.

The greatest fear I held was not being in shape by Day 500, which is actually a "negative motivator" but when harnessed correctly this "stick approach" can also spur you on to produce results when you are "under the gun".

Ok, I really gotta go and pack now, next time I post I'll be in San Francisco on Day 496.


P.S. Details on my NYC Stealth Mission coming soon, stay tuned...

Feel free to use this plan as a template that you can follow. However, this plan is is based on my own personal experience over 3 physique transformation missions. In other words, what works for me may not work for you in the same way.

Success in this game requires research, individual design, real-world testing, monitoring results and making adjustments when necessary. This is your responsibility, no one else can do it for you. However, if you'd like to research further the exact programs I have used (over my first 3 Missions) and will use for M4 Shred you can do so at the links below.

Man Adam, you are something... I mean 500 days of discipline? How do you do it? How do you not just eat a whole pizza or something?

I can't my head into the mind of of a superman who would go 500 days of the most impressive discipline i've ever seen.

Can I ask you a question also about the whites of your eyes? Going way, way back to your fat video attempt when you failed and came back later on, to now with your ultra state of fitness, up close in the mirror, have you noticed a change in the whites of your eyes?

Thank you Suzette! See you very soon,

Adam Waters said...

Thanks Mike, you are gonna blow us all away when it comes for your reveal mate! I can see it already!

Adam Waters said...

Hi Sin, thanks man.

G'day Kel, great to be here! who woulda thought!

Adam Waters said...

Hi anonymous, thanks for your kind words. To tell you the truth I am anything but Superman, as you can see I from previous pics I have been up and down a bit over the last 496 days.

But daily pic accountability does enforce discipline so when I'm on a mission my results are better.I think whites of my eyes are clearer now than in July 03.
