Day 505 Quiz Results: Lilla & Joni Got It!

In Yesterday's Day 505: M4 Training Day II post I had my toughest quiz yet! Lilla and Joni got the first answer 100% correct by answering that the Training Day pics were paradoxically congruent with the picture of Tom and I in Times Square (pics seen below).

Pic 1 @ 3:00PM: "Pain"

Pic 2 @ 11:00PM: "Pleasure"

Here are Lilla's and Joni's responses below:

Lilla said...
Amazing photographic genius!!! ;)

Paradox? Pain (Training) vs. Pleasure (Reward)

Joni said...
Yeah, Lilla, I wonder why you think so :)

Ditto on her answer - paying the price, then reaping the benefits. Hopefully we can all really embrace this during the next 8 weeks!!

Congrats on everything!

Spot on Lilla and Joni!

However, my second question went unanswered (except for Lill'a attempt!) which asked what the "common thread" that binds these images together? The answer is very simple...Visualization!

It's true, while I constantly visualized my M4 Training Day workout with Tom Venuto - as documented in M4 Shred: Real Time Accountability - I also visualized an image very, very similar to the one you see above with me and Tom in Times Square!

This experience would be a dream come true - chilling out with Tom Venuto in Times Square after seeing a Broadway Show - as it would have been unthinkable for this event to occur back on Day 1: The Truth Hurts - November 8, 2006.

My wildest dreams actually came true...never underestimate the power of image-based visualization!

N.B. This evening out with Tom actually occurred on Day 505, but as you can see I've been stuck on Day 505 for a while now - having already made 3 separate blog posts for this day! Therefore its time to move on so I can get back to real time on this blog!

Mike Groom said...

Loved the video Adam! It's great seeing what you are up to and not only the training/shredding side of your visit. I look forward to more!

Michael said...

Adam, you're losing the "real time" part of your blog mate. Where are the recent posts? :-)

Adam Waters said...

Hi Suzette, pro pics coming very soon! Thanks Mike, more to come mate.

Hi Michael, recent posts are in stealth mode!

Ok...watching the original video, something doesn't make sense: Between the first photo and the second photo, Adam seems to have instantly lost a massive amount of fat. It just kind of disappeared, with no explanation of where it all went. Did he do that all in one day? That seems like a bit of a stretch.
