90 DAY FIANCE Anfisa fills ‘void’ while Jorge imprisoned by working out, reveals NPC fitness competition goals
90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Anfisa Nava continues to adjust to living alone as her husband Jorge Nava serves his 2 1/2-year prison sentence for marijuana transportation in Arizona. The Russian-born reality star is still enrolled as a full-time college student, and she also continues to grow her very successful YouTube channel. In addition to these pursuits, Anfisa just shared a very personal post on Instagram in which she reveals that she needed something more to “fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced,” and that something more has been focusing on working out in hopes of someday being an NPC fitness competitor!
As we previously posted, Anfisa’s physique has become a lot more chiseled over the last few months, and she shared two more photos showing off the results of her dedication to working out and eating lean on Instagram (above and below) along with her revealing caption.
“As you know (or maybe not know) my husband got sentenced to 2.5 years in prison on September 7,” Anfisa begins. “To be honest, it has been very hard on me because Jorge and I are not just husband and wife but we are truly best friends and we used to share everything with each other and since we aren’t together physically now and only get to talk to each other once a day it feels like a big part of me was taken away.”
Anfisa being so open and personal about her relationship with Jorge is not something fans are used to, and Anfisa is the first to admit it is difficult for her to open up. “I don’t normally talk about it because I don’t like to show my emotions to the public, especially if I believe that it will make me look weak and pathetic,” she writes. “It’s just the way I am – I’d rather be thought of as a ‘cold hearted b*tch’ than a ‘crybaby’,” she adds.
She then goes on to explain how the photos are connected to the isolation she has been experiencing. “To fill the void that I felt after Jorge was sentenced and I was left on my own I decided to try to stay busy and I do what I enjoy the most and it was working out,” she reveals. “And ONE DAY I want to take it on a higher level and compete in NPC bikini division.”
But, just like pretty much anything a celebrity shares on social media, Anfisa’s recent photos of her toned physique inspired a lot of criticism from her followers. Instead of clapping back with a snarky quip, Anfisa is very thoughtful as she expresses her disappointment over the negative reactions. “It feels frustrating when some of you try to knock me down for doing what I love and enjoy. I know that many of you started following me on social media after seeing #90DayFiance and you just want to see me post pictures with Jorge and talk about our relationship. Well, I’m just letting you know that I’m going in a different direction now, I’m not a part of #90DayFiance, so if you don’t want to see anything other than #90DayFiance related stuff and you want to keep commenting nasty things under my pictures, please unfollow me and move on.”
Of course, not all of the reactions have been negative, and Anfisa is appreciative of those who have remained positive. “And to those who support me, I love you ❤️ and thank you 🙏 I’m very grateful to have people who are always cheering me up. I may not always reply to comments and DMs but I see you all. 😉”
I am 100% in the latter category as I completely support Anfisa’s fitness obsession! She has stated before that despite her apparent diva personality, she is very much an introvert who has found it very difficult making friends here in the United States. It would be so easy to combat the isolation she is feeling while her husband and best friend Jorge is in prison by either doing nothing (for me I’m imagining laying around binging The Office on Netflix all day every day) or even something bad — like attempting to combat the loneliness with alcohol or Little Debbie snack cakes.
It speaks volumes about Anfisa that she seems to spend all of her time while Jorge is incarcerate actually DOING things — things that will only have a positive impact on her life in the future. I only hope that Jorge is exhibiting the same drive by doing some studying and working out of his own.
Here are the original photos along with Anfisa’s full caption:
On a side note, if you are curious about how Anfisa’s even-more-noticeable breast implants will affect her NPC competition eligibility, that is something that they do not discourage and has pretty much become expected.
