Working On My Fitness: Quest Bars

Back in January I joined crossfit.
I didn't know much about it, other than you workout like crazy and their members tend to follow the paleo diet.

After months of being confused by the jargon that accompanies crossfit and committing social suicide on the regular at classes, I've finally got the hang of it.

Every few months my xfit gym does a paleo nutrition challenge and I decided to try it out since it was around my birthday and I wanted to slim down.
It sucked alot for the first couple of weeks until I learned how to make paleo desserts...which I'll of course post later.

Anyways, we were allowed to have protein shakes and bars as well as quinoa..
So this challenge was technically light-weight paleo.
The results were good and I lost 5lbs and some body-fat and such within the 7 week challenge. Of course, I cheated here and there but still..I was pleased by my results.
I'm now on a pseudo-paleo maintenance plan and it's been rough to get back on the horse.

It does help when you come across good food that's approved for the challenge and with that..I've discovered Quest bars.

I'm currently obsessed with the cinnamon roll and cookie dough flavors.

They're amazing!
I got mine at GNC, and with my gold membership a package of 12 was around $23. Yes, it's pricey but worth it when you want a treat without cheating and sacrificing your waistline.
