Teresa Giudice has been a busy woman in between seasons of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. While waiting for Season 9 of RHONJ to start, Teresa took up weightlifting and she’s so good at it that she started competing in fitness competitions too!
While reports claimed that Joe Giudice wasn’t too supportive of Teresa’s new pastime before, she claims that he’s behind her now and even cheering her on. Teresa says that Joe wasn’t too excited about her taking the stage in a bikini but once he realized how much the competition meant to her, he told her to go for it.
On her journey to becoming the biggest badass on RHONJ, she shared a lot of photos and videos. Teresa has been very open about how she trained and what she ate in order to get in such amazing shape.
It takes a lot of discipline to get competition ready and Teresa Giudice has already proved she has tons of it. After all, she has to give up pasta when she’s in training mode and we already know how hard that is for an Italian girl from Jersey.
What’s worse than giving up pasta? Wine!
Yes, she gives up wine too.
“I haven’t drank now in a while and it’s like… wow. I miss it, but i’m doing it,” Teresa told Bravo. “So I’m kind of proud of myself. As soon as this competition is over, we’re going to go out and have a few drinks, I’m not so much even worried about food, but I kinda want a drink.”
When Teresa Giudice first started weight training, Real Housewives of New Jersey fans didn’t know what to think. But it’s safe to say now that she took her fitness and diet seriously and she killed it.
At 50 years old, Teresa Giudice competed in her first bodybuilding competition over the summer. Donning a tiny (and we’re talking tiny) purple bikini, the RHONJ star impressed and even took home third place in the 40+ category.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
