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.

Day 4 Of Overcoming Sugar Addiction

Well, I didn't know what to expect on the other side of Day 3.. but I have to say... today was fairly easy. Other than some cravings after lunch after I had a greasy burger and fries (Five Guys), I wanted something sweet.

But really, I haven't really wanted anything sweet for the most part today. And my orange that I had at breakfast tasted amazing!

So far the differences that I'm noticing by Day 4
is that I'm no longer having nights sweats, I have a lot more energy, I seem to be less hungry (although that could be a fluke), and for some reason I'm colder than normal. But I was hot... a lot.. no pun intended. I felt like an inferno all of the time. Now.. well.. now I'm cold.

Also, without even realizing it, I'm drinking about half of the coffee than I normally did. I am drinking green tea, but I haven't had it every day.

Actually today, I've had less herbal tea than I have had the previous days.

One thing I have added to my diet that I don't normal eat are seeds. I've been putting raw pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds on my salads since I started this challenge. I don't know if it's helping, but it certainly isn't hurting. And I'm not currently cutting carbs at all.

I'm taking this one step at a time. I'm not sure what will come after 7 days, but for now, my goal is 7 days without sugar.

Day 4 is complete, on to day 5! I just did a little happy dance. I've never made it this long without sugary junk food before!

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends.
