How I Am Incorporating Alert Caffeine Gum Into My Fitness Routine

Image
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.

Extend Nutrition And Control Your Blood Sugar

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

I've never been one to like protein bars. I have friends who will eat them and say they taste like candy bars (I'm thinking they've apparently never eaten the candy bars that I've eaten. Because 'chocolate' cardboard does not taste like a candy bar to me) But some bars are just better than others. Some upset my stomach; others don't. Some are full of sugar; some aren't. My advice is to read the label! Some of those protein bars have as many calories as a candy bar, plus the sugar, and almost all of the fat. So, it's always best to know what you are eating (preferably before you eat it).

A few weeks ago, I was introduced to Extend Nutrition. These snacks are designed to control blood sugar for 9 hours which in turn is supposed to help with hunger control, sustained energy, improved muscle recovery and possibly help manage diabetes.

Upon first glance, I liked what I saw.

Taste? I liked them. I liked the Chocolate Drizzle anytime crisps the best. Lil Man was also a fan. I would show you a picture, but, ahem they didn't last long enough for me to take a picture!

The bars were also tasty. I can't say that I'd prefer them over a sugar laden candy bar, but for nutritional purposes and blood sugar control, I feel that they did keep me from 'crashing'. I don't know about you, but I get pretty irritable when my blood sugar crashes. According to my family, I get down right mean. 

Extend Nutrition bars and snacks are an easy grab-and-go option. In fact, I plan to have a bar in my bag this weekend for my longer trail run. If I don't eat it while I'm out on the trail, I'll eat it for recovery. 

I feel that Extend Nutrition is worth checking out especially if  are trying to control blood sugar.
