#RoadtoShreds Episode 3 - So this is peak week? Oh. Damn.

I come to you today one shoot down out of three. All the hard work was about to be shown off in all its glory... In a sports bra and teeny shorts.

But before we get to that, I'd like to indulge you in my peak week. There's been lots of confusion across my social media -

"When's the comp Meisha?"
          I'm not competing.
"Oh... So, a peak week for a shoot? Who does that?"
          No. For 3 shoots.

Each to their own, I've always loved a challenge. Combine that with the immense pressure I put upon myself and the combination of wanting to look better than my last shoot and wanting to feel good when I shoot has meant, yes, I've basically done a full on comp prep for my shoots.
Call me mad, but the results I've had in 8 weeks talk for themselves. And ultimately, how did I feel on shoot number 1? Satisfied. Happy. Proud. I couldn't ask for anymore.

So anyway, I'm rambling. Peak week has been, and continues to be the hardest (but most successful) I've ever had. Having competed twice and cruised to the finish line, it was a big ask to expect the shreds I wanted. But as always, the boss and I were up to the challenge.

This meant a SERIOUS depletion phase.

When people talk of peak week, phrases that often associate -

Emotional turmoil.
Exhausted like never before.

Amongst others, i have to admit, I'd never experienced. I didn't know what the fuss was about.
Oh. How times change.

6 days, zero carbs, zero fats. Yep. Like I said, SERIOUS depletion. And anyone that spent any time with me throughout this will tell you, I definitely lost a bit of me. I felt like I wasn't in the room. Not being able to answer the most simple of questions like "how are you?". Yeh. Pretty fucked.

And after a day of carb loading (which was A LOT harder than I expected), I was ready. And I felt tight, tiny and ultimately, shredded. We'd pulled it off.

11kg down in 8 weeks. I'd smashed it.

So what's up next? I've got 2 more shoots and the plan is in full force. Deplete once more to pull in tightest for Monday. I've done 8 weeks. What's 5 more days? I'VE GOT THIS.

I'll leave you with a brief insight into my shoot with EFECTIV Nutrition. I was told I pull off the attitude... No wait, how did they put it? The "fuck you and fuck off" face really well. Well, thank you very much. I would have to agree, my bitch face game is strong when I will it.

The shots were got, and I left proud of the day.

On to the next!
