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 You Lack Confidence

Confidence - it's something that's never come easy for me. As I find myself approaching 43 (in a few days) I realize this is something that I struggle with - not only with body image, but in many areas of my life. And when someone doesn't believe in me, well it makes it even harder to believe in myself. 

But you know what, I've said it before, and I'll say it again until it is so inside my brain that I can't forget. I am enough

I'll say that again. I AM ENOUGH

I don't need to be thinner, larger, smaller, taller, shorter, faster, slower, better or anything else. 

I... yes, lil ole me... am enough... and I don't need anyone's approval to make me feel enough. I don't need justification for me to feel that what I do is worthy or necessary. 

Sometimes being a stay at home mom (and I'm sure working moms/dads) can feel the same, but I feel like I have to constantly justify TIME. Yes, time. Oh, he took a nap? So what did you do during that time? So how do you use the time when he is at preschool? And the list goes on and on. And with Lil Man approaching kindergarten it's getting worse. 

I often feel that I have to justify my time (or lack therof) during the day. So for anyone curious about how I will use the 2 hours 45 minutes when my son will be in kindergarten, well it's pretty much none of your business. Just like it's none of my business how you use your time throughout the day. 

For years now I've felt the need to justify myself as a Mom, a Runner, an Athlete, an Ice Cream Lover, and a Blogger.. well guess what.. as I approach the ripe ole age of 43, I don't need to justify myself to anyone. 

I am enough. I am worthy. And I believe in me.. Hmmm... maybe I am finding that confidence after all....
