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.

7 miles – it's hard to believe that I ran 7 miles today. I'd never run that far alone. It was difficult, and it took a lot of telling myself to 'just keep moving'. But I did it.

I didn't plan on running hills today though. I ran a new route and discovered hills were included. Thankfully, I only had one long incline and several smaller ones, but the route wasn't totally flat. The weather was gorgeous today with temps in the 70's.

I'm very pleased with myself that I did it, and that I didn't quit – but kept moving forward.


  1. Great job!! The longer runs can be tough by yourself, it's great that you got through it!
