Congrats to RHOC's Tamra Judge! Her months of bodybuilding completely paid off

We've watched The Real Housewives of Orange County's Tamra Judge prep for the Musclemania competition for months. This weekend, she finally took the stage. And guess what? To no one's surprise, Judge's training completely paid off. She won a big ol' trophy to take home with her.

Judge posted a video of herself backstage before the competition, prepping with shoulder presses in her bikini. "Hard work, determination, and it all comes down to tonight," she wrote. It's great to see her hard work turn into literal gold as she flaunts that trophy in a sweet family photo.

Even better, Judge seems to have her priorities in order. Even though she's going home with a trophy, she took the rest of the weekend off to relax and spend time with her family. She captioned her winning photo, "Amazing experience ..... But it's Time to relax and enjoy the holiday weekend with friends and family. Watch season 11 to see what happens." (Whew, that means we'll get to watch the ramp-up to the competition and the big day on the next season of RHOC.) 

She also celebrated her victory exactly how a fitness win should be memorialized — with a whole lot of doughnuts.
