Let me be tell you something. A two competitor home can be overwhelming. Last year, between my husband and I we did 5 shows. In Utah, California and Louisiana. Were we the best at balancing life? Nope! We had a lot of ups and downs. Happy and Ugly times. Let’s be real. Depleting for a show comes with it’s own ugly side affects. Bodybuilding is selfish.
