How I Am Incorporating Alert Caffeine Gum Into My Fitness Routine

Thank you Alert Caffeine Gum for sponsoring this post. All opinions and experiences are my own.

Anyone else struggling with getting back into a routine after being off for the holidays? I know I have. Add in that Lil Man was sick an entire week before Christmas and daily naps became the norm, I'm really struggling to make it through a normal day.

Although we haven't gone back to school yet, Hubby is back to work. And that means if I want to get in a workout or at least one without company and interruptions, I have to get up early and workout before Hubby goes to work. And the rest of the day is the usual go go go.

Thankfully I've had the opportunity to try Alert Caffeine Gum. 1 piece of Alert Gum is about the equivalent of a half a cup of coffee. (And for me that means no jitters). It's just enough ooomph to give me the boost that I need.

The Weather is Turning Colder

It’s been difficult to run lately. The weather has changed here. It is much cooler, and it is making it difficult for me to ‘get out there’. I purchased a cheap exercise bike in the attempt to try to stay in shape since I couldn’t run as often. I have to say though that I hate the bike.

I was able to get out and run this Thursday and Friday. I was disappointed in my first run this week. I ran a little over three miles, but my pace as terribly slow. The run on Friday was faster, but it left me too sore that I didn’t run today. I am hoping to run tomorrow even though it is supposed to be colder.

The true Runners keep telling me that it will get easier, but I can’t say that I see that happening yet. I can see that I am stronger (some days) than I have been in the past. And then (some days) I feel as if I have never run before.

I think my biggest obstacle is myself. If I get tired – I quit. And this frustrates me about myself. But, in my own defense, I have to say that I haven’t given up. I may stop and walk some steps, but I continue to get out there and I continue to run.
