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.

I'm Sorry But I'm Injured And I Need To Whine

I apologize in advance, I really do. But I just need to whine - just a little. I am SOOOOOOOOOO over being injured. In fact, I'm so over being injured year after year. Since the year after my son was born, every Winter I have been injured. First it was 3 stress fractures in my foot after my 1st half, then it was tendonitis, then it was a torn calf muscle, and now it's a hamstring injury with a side of massive knee pain from trying to cross train. And I was just starting to really enjoy spin class!

I'm writing this with an ice pack on my knee.
And yeah, I've shed a few tears this afternoon - not so much from pain, but from sheer frustration.

I have a call into physical therapy. (I called after hours tonight. So I'm not sure how long it will take for them to get back to me). I don't know if I can get in without a dr's referral. I'm not sure where to start. But I guess I have to start by asking questions.

But I'm frustrated... I was just getting back into the groove of early morning workouts and my mental health was much improved. But it looks like I won't be going to spin class in the am. I'm just hoping I can walk without pain. Because by this afternoon, well I'm limping.

Anyway, just needed to vent for a moment. Thanks for listening to me whine.

I'll let you know what happens with PT/Dr appointments as soon as I figure it out!

  1. Have you thought about working with a trainer? I've had my share of injuries...then last year I went to work with my CrossFit trainer ( who is also a corrective exercise specialist). OMG what a difference she's made in my life. I've been running for over 20 years and this was the best year, running-wise, of my life.

    1. :( Yeah.. just FINISHED working with a trainer... got injured at the very end of marathon training ...
