Lately, Teresa Guidice's Instagram feed has been all about her daily workouts. And while we knew the New Jersey mom was looking more buff than ever — honestly, that was kind of hard to miss — we were so excited to learn that Teresa was secretly prepping for a bodybuilding competition all along! We also had no idea just how ripped the cookbook author had gotten. But, the cat's out of the bag now!
On June 9, The Real Housewives of New Jersey yogi showed off her incredibly toned physique at the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships in Medford, New Jersey. With her blonde locks tumbling down her shoulders, the New Jersey native wore sparkling earrings and a teeny, glittering purple bikini that put her muscles on full display. Ready for your jaw to drop? Check out the results of all those grueling workouts:
And, here's another cheeky pose:
We weren't the only ones cheering Teresa on. Her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa came out to support their buff family member:
Over on her Instagram feed, Teresa's trainer Tara Zito couldn't help but gush over her impossibly fit client. "So proud of [Teresa Giudice] for stepping on stage today for her first time ever in the bikini division! Looks like she is going to take home a top 3 placing!!," she wrote.
We're psyched that Teresa took home a well-deserved prize. But if you ask us, her real reward is that inner and outer strength she so clearly possesses. Way to go, Teresa!
