#DatingAfterDivorce. Little known fact? My ex got me into competitive bodybuilding... he was ADAMANT that we do it together. I thought it was sheer poppycock but, I supported his choice. Keep in mind he declared this a week before our wedding so I may or may not have laughed in his face at first.
After the wedding, we hired a coach and hit the ground running. We lifted, ate right, and cheered each other on. Eventually, he decided he wasn’t ready but encouraged me to continue. Even the babies were into eating right and “lifting”(their toys out of the damn toy chest 😂). I picked a show and found out my husband couldn’t go due to #USMC duties but urged me to do it anyway.
Long story short, I was HOOKED. My husband was still supportive but less enthusiastic as he wasn’t competing. As I prepped for my next show, I fell sick with mono but didn’t know. I dropped weight like crazy and felt my energy leaching from my body. I stopped prep and just focused on healing.
The next years, I was ALL ABOUT COMPETING, my husband ... not so much. While supportive, I could tell it wasn’t the same... he never, not once attended a competition, never saw me compete.
5 shows without seeing my spouse’s face in the crown.
5 shows without that tight hug and flowers in hand.
5 shows with no post show date night.
All this to say, next time, My Babe better be front and center because I’ll NEVER put up with that shit ever again.... #blackgirlmagic #melaninpoppin #bae #swolemate #marriage #npcbikini #shelifts #marinewife #milso #fitnessmotivation #blackfitness #bodybuilder #bodybuilding #nashville #fitstagram #girlswhoworkout #nashvillefitnessmodels #girlswithtattoos #girlswhosquat #makeupformelaningirls
