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.

When It's Time For Professional Help

Well, the hammy is still not 100% well, but it's improving. In fact, I was able to do a little speed work this past week. I do have the need for speed. I'd rather do speed work and mile repeats any day over any type of run. I love the challenge, and I love the rush especially if I hit my pace.


I had planned on doing 3 (1) mile repeats, but decided to just do 2 to test how the hammy handled it. I was a little sore, but no pain. I'm considering that success. 

But, I'm finding that I'm dealing with muscle imbalance like I did at the end of 2013 when I had my calf tear (Injury Update - MRI results). And the more I heal, the more muscle I'm rebuilding, but I know I'm overcompensating on my form due to the imbalance. So I reached out to
Elizabeth at Personal Design Fitness. She helped me last time, and I feel confident that she will help me again to regain strength and mobility all while getting stronger.

Also, I'm fed up with my body at the moment. I turn 42 this week, and I know partly that my birthday has something to do with that. But I've said for years that I would like to develop a strength routine and stick to it. I have yet to do that.  So I'm hoping that working with Elizabeth will help me get into a routine and that I'll stick with it! 

I'm looking forward to correcting my muscle imbalances, building some muscle tone, and getting stronger! I'm planning on working hard to make 42 my fitness year!
