Teaching Update & Quest Protein Bars


My schedule has changed starting today! Wednesday mornings I am now teaching Group Power instead of teaching on Wednesday nights. This is a BIG change for me.  It is bittersweet because I will definitely miss my regular Group Power attendees who have been coming to my night class for almost a year, but now my days will be balanced a little better. Teaching 3 nights in a row, doesn’t give me flexibility to do things at night during the week and forces Marc to rush home from work every day. This will work out better for all of us!


I have had many people tell me “your life will change when you have a baby” and over the last month I am starting to get hit with that. Being a mom is so rewarding but it is the most difficult job out there. My life revolves around little Miss Ava! When she’s sick it feels like I’m sick.. I need to reschedule my clients & find subs for classes. When Marc is running late from work I have to call up Grandma and ask her to watch Ava so I can go teach!

I really wouldn’t change anything, I just thought you wanted to know what was on my mind these past couple of weeks :)

On a TOTALLY different note, I tried the new Cookies N Cream Quest bar yesterday.


People have been raving about the new flavor. It was pretty good!

I know i have been talking a lot about protein lately but seriously I don’t consume whey protein ALL the time. I am just one of those people that has to try anything that has the word NEW labeled on it. I am always looking for the next BEST thing.

Quest Bars are high in protein, gluten free, & low carb.  This particular bar has 20g of protein, 7g of fat, and 170 Calories. It is a good balance for a quick post-workout snack.


I had this QUEST BAR after my Group Power workout Monday morning and it didn’t sit well with my stomach. I prefer a protein shake post-workout in the morning… it goes down easier. The bars are better for me after my evening workouts, go figure!

What is your favorite post-workout snack or drink? Have you ever made changes to your work schedule… and was it hard to adjust?
