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.

#BeFitAllYear Review & Giveaway

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 said it before, and I'll say it again, I think eating real food is the best way to get nutrition. However, I know that I personally don't always eat all of the nutrients that I need, and sometimes supplementing is easier (especially when I'm pressed for time which I seem to be a lot!)

I had the opportunity to try 3 of BeFit's new nutritional products.



This included the pre-workout, burn and whey protein.

In addition to BeFit's nutritional products, I also had the opportunity to check out out their 30-day workout calendar along with the 30-day workout video playlist.

Let's start with the nutrition.

I LOVED the taste of the pre-workout. I've used amino acids before, and I do find that it helps with recovery. I can't say that it helped with performance but only because I didn't have a 'before' to measure it with. But I do feel that the amino acids can help with soreness. That being said, after 2 sips of this great tasting pre-workout, I realized that it tasted like strawberry (which I am allergic to). According to the label, it contains natural flavorings, and it was fruit punch. So I imagine it contained strawberry (or something close enough) as I did have a slight allergic reaction. So, I didn't continue to drink it. But of the amino acid blend supplements that I've had, I have to say this one tasted awesome. :)



Burn is a 'fat burner without the jitters'. I took it a few days, but I honestly drink too much green tea that I didn't want to over do it since Burn also contains green tea. I did give it to Hubby for a week to conduct an experiment. He's not one to exercise, so I was curious to see if he took it without making any changes would there be a difference. And after 8 days of taking Burn without exercising his weight remained the same. However, I can't confirm that his food consumption stayed the same. He may have actually consumed more calories that week, but didn't gain :)




Of the nutritional products, the Whey protein is what I have used the most. At 100 calories and 22 grams of protein, I found it tasty and an easy way to add some extra protein to my day. I liked that it blended easy without lumps. I can toss it into my shaker with water (or my veggie juice) and be on my way. I've never tried backing with Whey protein, but I know there are a lot recipes out there. I'm thinking muffins would taste great.



Overall, if you are looking for supplements, BeFit has a great line to choose from.

Now to the 30-day workout calendar and 30-day workout video playlist.... Check out the intro-video for the 30-day workout program.


The workout calendar was nice that it laid out a program that I could use. And the workout videos fit in nicely with my existing routine. I liked that several of the videos were 10 mins or so. I could do one or combine more than one depending on the time. And I liked how you could improvise as needed. I definitely worked up a sweat! I plan to continue to incorporate the workout video playlist from BeFit into my weekly routines.

And, now for the giveaway! Yep, one of you can win a nutritional pack from BeFit by simply entering the giveaway tools below.
