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.

From Awesome to Bleh But It Ends With A Smile

I've had some great runs to have some very bleh runs this weekend. Earlier this week I hit the mark for my schedule. But Saturday's plans got rearranged for me and I had to run in the afternoon (not my favorite time to run). And I was trying to beat storms that were moving in. Needless to say, my mind wasn't in a great place for this run. It was hot. I didn't bring water. And my pace run turned into a less than stellar run. I was about 20 seconds per mile shower than I should have been. Mentally I felt defeated.

Today's long run of 11 wasn't much better. The weather was nice, and honestly the only thing holding me back was my mind today. I just couldn't get into it. So today turned into more of a run/walk. Thankfully it was supposed to be an easy run because it turned into a very easy run!

But today is Mother's day, and although my mind has bounced back and forth from missing my Mom who is in MS, to my grandmothers who are in Heaven, to me being in PA and not at times feeling all of that appreciated... this Lil Man's smiles made it all worth it.

  1. We all have those runs. Those runs are the ones that build our mental toughness and the ones that teach us the best lessons. Great job pushing through!
