Teen Mom 3's Mackenzie Douthit's latest accomplishment receives major kudos from all of her fans

A great big shoutout to Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Douthit.

Douthit is just slightly obsessed with fitness, and if you’ve taken a glance at her social media accounts, you would know she’s been preparing for her first bodybuilding competition. Now, after weeks and months of training and dieting, her hard work is paying off. On Saturday Douthit, who is a mother of two, competed in the Grand Prix Championship bodybuilding competition in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

She has been keeping her fans up-to-date on her training routine, diet and posing as the weeks have gone on, and although she didn’t reveal how she placed this weekend, she did post a lovely photo of her and her husband Josh McKee, with a sweet message. In the caption she praised her hubby for all his love and support on her bodybuilding journey.

Just last week, Douthit posted this photo showing her in a bikini, telling her fans about how much she just ate and worked out, and giving them a short glimpse into the grueling hard work of preparing for a competition such as this.

This is after 6 meals, 2 gallons of water and 3 hours of cardio (not in one setting) and I only do that much cardio the week before... Starving yourself is never the answer, but unfortunately eating a box of donuts isn't either .. Learn to find that happy healthy balance in life. I have until Saturday to get myself together. my this competition snuck up on me.. Not to mention I could not find a suit that covered my c-section scar ... Being a beginner at this, I'm by no means where I want to be, But I do however know I'm not going to stop until I reach my dreams. People who WANT something in life, MAKE it happen. I've been so frustrated with all the set backs I have had with my random days of bad blood sugars, But that dumb disease will be the LAST thing that stops me. I'm so thankful and truly blessed for the competitors who privately reached out to me and helped me in any way they can and shortly became my good friends. Miles and miles apart, we support one another and that's so important to have. So I'm very thankful for that, and also for my kids and hubby for making life so enjoyable. I use to wonder if the "rodeo" life and the "fitness" life would collide as we are both chasing such big dreams... But the only problem I'm running into is having to pee every hour while on the rhode to rodeos and Josh and Gannon laughing as I'm squatting on a dirt road ... And MY !! does that cowboy look good on a Bronc With lots of love and support we make it work. We have 1 life on this earth to live, reach for the stars and LOVE one another ?#4daysout #npc #abs #workinprogress #fitmom #ispyacsectionscar

And this photo of her working on posing in her competition bikini (yes, they have to practice their poses so they can show off their muscles flexed in certain positions). In the photo, she laments her back as a weak point in her training, but is happy to see progress.

One of my weaknesses, my back ... I'm finally seeing progress though and that's all that matters #fitmom #npc #babygotback
