Day 730 Video: 2 Years Of Real Time Accountability!


On August 10, 2021 I had a crazy idea…”How about I reboot my blog and aim for two years of real time accountability!” Even crazier, here I am on Day 730! 

This has turned out to be a genuine life changer for me, every thing in my life has gotten better since starting this journey. My health, confidence, finances and time management skills just to name a few! Even though this reboot has been a lot more “low-key” than my original blog I am in a way much happier…especially at keeping the weight off!

With all that said, here are my results from Mission 8. I ended up at 84.3 kg (185.8 lbs) for a total loss of 3.3 kg (7.3 lbs). My body fat was down 0.7% to 16.9%. Neither of these numbers are even close to the goal I set myself at the start of M8: sub 80kg and sub 10% body fat. 

As I discuss in my Day 730 video below, I am starting to “remember” just how high compliance has to be hit single digit body fat, it may take a couple of more Missions to get there! In fact, I realised today that I still have not even hit my Day 1 weight of 84.0 kg from 2006! 

So, what’s next? Well, as you can see from the header graphic I have decided to push on with weekly accountability. I have given myself until Day 1000 to hit my sub-80kg and sub 10% body fat goals, surely that is enough time! I also have a big milestone birthday (Big 5-0) coming up early next year, maybe I can do some damage before February 1st?!

Before I sign off today I’d like to thank each and every person who has taken the time to post a comment on this blog over the last two years. It has been great to catch up (virtually) with so many people, many whom I met in person all those years ago.

Until next time,

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!

P.S. In my Day 730 video below I discuss the ins and outs of this Mission, along with the big difference between daily and weekly accountability.

  1. Very impressive Adam. On more than one level. Sticking with it for 2 years is quite a feat, and an inspiration to others as well as the mental aspect to the physical goal. I am certain if you continue you will achieve what you are after.

    1. Thank you Carlos, I kinda realised that life continues, so I might as well too! Also, I know this is a real challenge, but it is a challenge I’m ready to embrace. You must have some stories of shredding into single digit body fat!

      1. I can tell you it wasn’t easy with my body type. But honestly I never knew what the metrics were. My last contest the World Championships in December of 1985 I did not know my body-fat level. Instruments for measurement were not as available then as they are now. But yes, there are always stories, I was on stage 36 times and I think I learned something each time. And as Sue says “Fitness is a moving target” especially with the passage of time. I can see that now as well at almost 75- things are different, and I think it’s important to expect that.

        1. That’s really interesting mate, we take it for granted now that we can easily measure our body fat (and stats) with all the tools we have! Judging by your pictures from that time I’d have to think you were below at least 7% bodyfat, what do you reckon mate? I agree with you and Sue that fitness is a moving target, its definitely not a single destination for me anymore, I learned that the hard way!

          1. I think my body fat at that time was in the neighborhood of about 7 to 10%, and at 5’11 1/2″ I weighed about 195 on stage even though in some poses it may look like more.

  2. Nice work, Adam! Very proud of you! I would agree that is does seem more challenging as you get older and does require better overall compliance.
    In reality, we woll always have a mission to look forward to and having that accountability can be a good driving force to keep pressing on, otherwise it’s too easy to fall back.

  3. So AWESOME, Adam! This is inspiring me to start my own blog with weekly accountability. I’m one week out from the end of a summer challenge on Burn the Fat Feed the Muscle. While I wasn’t on track completely (having issues with staying away from Margaritas, although I do choose the “skinny” ones with no sugar, but that leads to chips and salsa. Grrrr!), I have been 98% with my workouts – opted for the TNB Turbo home workouts – just completed phase one and heading into phase 2 next week. I think of you often and how you were the catalyst I needed to get a kick start on my own journey, as well as SO many other shredders! I’m down 50 lbs after my gain back since 2010, and have another 40 or so to go. I’ll keep tabs on you! Shred on! You are the shred MASTER! LOL

    1. G’day Laura! Great to see you here! Congratulations on your 50lb weight loss, that is a big deal! On the nutrition side I totally get you, I banished all treats for my first 6 months. When my weight stabilised under 90kg I did partake again (usually fruit, yogurt and honey) but I would so easily have double and triple helpings! After bouncing around between 86-90kg for so long I decided to do a calculation on my “off plan” extra calories. Are they worth the extra time and effort required to burn them off? Like, “is this calorie dense treat worth another week of high intensity getting back to where I am right now? Or should I get down to my goal weight first and then add back in those foods when I’ve got a lot of wiggle room?” something like that!

  4. Well done Adam…
    Glad that you intend to carry on with the accountability blog and continue to be an inspiration for the rest of us🙂
    Rock on bro…🤟
