Dear Muscle Diary,
Fitness Model Claire has landed in Greece! The journey has just started, but the finish is just around the corner with less than 2 weeks till I step on stage.
It is challenging preparing for a competition whilst travelling, but I have done it before, you just have to come prepared and be prepared to work! For example, before my last competition, I went to Thailand for a month. The time before that I was rocking it in Vegas. Some people feel that staying fit and healthy reduces their enjoyment whilst on holidays. This shouldn't be the case.
For those who find it hard to continue to work towards their fitness goals whilst traveling, this entry will give you some insight into how I do it.
So to be honest, for me, this has been a challenging journey as being competition lean twice in less than 4 months is a hard task. The body needs to rest between competitions, as being lean all year round isn't healthy. For example, it is much easier for an overweight person to lose weight than for a skinny person to, as it's technically not required. That's why as a competitor there is a process to follow, and it works - Bulk, Shred, Repeat!
So here I am in sunny Greece soaking up the sun and sand, but still not losing sight of my end goal. I am staying in Chios for a week and then off to Zakynothos to compete.
