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.

Aurorae Impressions Illuminate Your Life Yoga Mat

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

As you know, I'm currently injured (The Post I Didn't Want To Write - Physical Therapy Happened). So for 2 weeks, I'm only approved to do my PT exercises (boo - hiss!) But, on a positive note, I'm starting to see a little improvement with my flexibility when it comes to my hamstring.

And although I can't do yoga (just yet), I can still use my beautiful Aurorae Impressions Crimson Sunset Yoga Mat  to do my PT exercises! 

This is the first mat that I've had that has a design. And I have to say that I'm in love. Once again, I'm really impressed with the Aurorae yoga mat's quality. 

The mat dimensions are 72" Long x 24" Wide and 5 mm Thick. It's big enough for Lil Man and I both to use it at the same time :) As you can see, Lil Man had to do a few yoga moves for me. In fact, he got to try it out before I could even sit on it! Since there aren't any standing pose exercises for me at the moment, I found the Aurorae Impressions yoga mat to be thick enough to cushion my hip/lower back as I did my PT exercises.

All in all, Lil Man and I are extremely pleased with the design (he loved the birds) and the quality of this mat. In my opinion this is a great yoga mat - oh and as an added bonus, it also came with a slip free rosin bag - score!
