Always a Work in Progress

Self-motivation is invaluable.
Stephanie learned that the goal post is constantly moving. If you don’t move with it, you will never achieve personal fulfillment.

mom__on_the_run“I am strong. I am confident. I am beautiful. I am healthy. I am enough.”Words that I have been learning to tell myself so that she believes it for herself 💛 I want to set healthy intentions & habits, seeing body movement as a privilege & way to take care of which is often easier ourselves rather than a punishment for not believing the words above said than done, but always a work in progress!!

Build Better Skills & Habits

Enjoy a better life

cpagaduanThis experience has been one of the best gifts that life has ever given me. I’m proud to wear the Quest badge. Six years later, I still wake up excited every day for what’s ahead just like I was on my first day. Thank you. Always, #OnaQuest.

It’s not a diet…

It’s a lifestyle.
Michelle transformed her entire way of living. This once homebody is now a runner and finished her first 5k in under 30 minutes.

happy.life_vsg Before heading to work in the morning, I always make sure I have at least one @questnutrition protein bar in my bag. Quest bars are ALWAYS my mid-morning snack of choice! I really like several flavors, but Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is my current fav! I like that I can take my protein bar into a meeting and eat it without being disruptive. I'm also super picky about protein bars - 1) They have to taste good - duh! 2) They have to be HIGH protein, as in at least 20g. And 3) The overall calories cannot exceed 200. Not many protein bars pass my three requirements, so I'm really grateful that Quest bars pass with flying colors! What's your favorite Quest bar flavor?

Always a Work in Progress

The life of a runner is constantly moving.
As an ultra runner, Jacob is constantly pushing his body to the physical limits. He needs the right nutrition to keep him on his feet.

mom__on_the_run“Who is winning your mind or your body?” @shaunt — It just dawned on me that next month Keegan will be a year old! That means I’m almost 1 year postpartum and although I “bounced back” pretty quick this time, I lost the baby weight within a few days and was able to ease back into my normal routine a lot has changed. My body is different, I have new pains and aches, my hips always pop, I’m still trying to figure out life with 2 & the workouts feel 1000 times harder than they used to. I’m sure this was hard 4 years ago too but I was so dang proud of myself for not giving up that all the rest is a blur! — Aside from my family, my biggest motivation is myself. Knowing that I went from a quitter to someone who pushed past all excuses and made it all happen. My motivation this time is knowing that I did it then and I can do it now! 📸 photo cred: Jayde)

mom__on_the_runThank you @questnutrition for this box of goodies!! We are opting for a Quest Chocolate Chip Cookie for our movie night snack! 😋

mom__on_the_runSeriously motherhood is a 24/7 mission primarily spent taking care of other humans from feeding to cleaning up after meals, somehow fitting in a million household chores that still seem to never be caught up on & trying to feed yourself is sometimes difficult too... sorry not sorry... this ones all mine 🤪 . I eat way more protein bars than I’d like to admit 🤣 But they help me get through for snacks on the go and especially bedtime sweets cravings! Low sugar/high protein and DELICIOUS 🤤 @questnutrition are my go to!

cpagaduanT#TransformationTuesday post. Not a lot people know I used to weigh as much as the left (225 lbs.). About four years ago, I made the decision to change my life & enforced my will to do so. With that, came a new physical self, but what I value most is the mental transformation that comes from going through such an experience. I'm continuously inspired when I see others do the same because it's not easy. It takes relentless commitment. It takes acquiring & building a set of skills & habits to get to the destination. Skills & habits that will aid you for the rest of your life in whatever you do. The key is to continue developing them to your advantage. We are capable of achieving anything we put our mind to. Keep growing. #OnaQuest #FitFam #iifym #flexibledieting #transform

cpagaduanWhen I joined the @questnutrition family 5.5 years ago, a protein pizza was just a dream. A conversation topic of what was to come. We knew it was coming...only the work needed to be done. Several years later, after releasing a few more Quest Bars, Protein Chips, Protein Cookies, & a few other things....NOW A DREAM COME TRUE! 🍕🍕 🍕 LET’S HAVE SOME PIZZA! Get it now at @target! 🙌 #OnaQuest

happy.life_vsg Sharing my love of @questnutrition with the person I love MOST - my husband! Our house is always stocked with our favorite Quest snacks! Seriously, I eat a bag of the Nacho Cheese Tortilla-Style protein Chips DAILY! Such a game changer for me! I have always been a salty/crunchy chip addict, and since having #vsg , I haven't allowed myself a true potato chip or corn chip, which is why I am SO grateful for this amazing low carb, high protein option! My husband is a bit of a cookie monster and really enjoys the Peanut Butter Protein Cookie! Feed your cravings! What's your favorite snack from Quest?

happy.life_vsg #transformationtuesday My belt size has changed a little! LOL Side note, that "before" pic was not even at my heaviest weight! #150poundsdown #vsg #wls #rny#weightlosssurgery #bariatricsurgery

happy.life_vsg Firstly, in case you didn't catch it in my stories, last night I finally ran a 5k in under 30 minutes! managed to finish in 29:45! I was absolutely thrilled! Secondly, this morning I did my longest distance yet - 8 miles! And my time was pretty darn decent - 1:21:32! It's been a very long week, though, and I fell short on sleep several times. I feel tired... And I think I look tired. LOL

ultra_truckerMy @questnutrition protein powder was getting low so I headed over to @vitaminshoppe and picked up an old favorite. Chocolate is one of those flavors that goes with almost everything and it’s a nice treat after a hard workout -

jacob1anie

ultra_truckerI’m stoked to share 2 new @questnutrition products for #2019! There’s a Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookie and a new Chocolate Hazelnut protein bar which tastes awesome. 😋

ultra_trucker One day, I’m the exception Most days, I’m just like most Some days, I’m headed in the right direction And some days, I ain’t even close ~Burning Man by Dierks Bentley. Even time I hear that verse I think about how peculiar it is to live the life of an ultra runner. We push our bodies to do unimaginable things one day and then go back to the day grind, like most people, the next. Almost as if we’re living two different lives. But I really wouldn’t want it any other way.
