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.

PowerIce Have You Tried It?

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. This post contains affiliate links.

Below is a review that I did a few years ago. We were cleaning out the freezer today, and I found some PowerIce that someone had shoved under some other things in the freezer. It was a happy surprise for me :)  But I thought this review was worth re-sharing. This really is a great product, especially on those hot steamy days! 

Original post:

The temps here are heating up. The freezing temps of Winter are being pushed away by humid hotter air. Wow, my body isn't used to the warmer temps yet. But I have to say, after a long hot run, knowing that I get one of these awesome treats makes tolerating the heat just a little bit better.

Me after my Long Run


Have you ever heard of PowerICE?

Well, here are a few facts. They are:
  • Frozen Electrolytes
  • Caffeine Free
  • Only 30 Calories per Ice Bar
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Gluten Free & Kosher
  • 100% Daily Value of Vitamin C
  • 8 grams natural sugar
  • All-Natural
PowerICE ships dry. You simply place them in the freezer, and let them freeze. 

They come in a variety of flavors: Orange Blast, Lime Kicker, Grape Score, and Pomegranate-Raspberry Rip. In addition to recovery, you can also use these before (or even during exercise) to help bring down your core temperature. 

When I'm running from home, recovery is easier than if I drive somewhere and then run. But I'm used to putting a small cooler in my car with an ice pack to keep my recovery drink cold. So I wanted to experiment and see how it would work with PowerIce. I have to say that I was impressed. It was slightly melted, and of course not as frozen as straight from the freezer, but it was still frozen enough to be very cold. Also, I could have thrown an additional ice pack in the cooler, and I'm sure that would have helped with keeping it colder. With the warmer weather here, PowerIce is my favorite recovery treat. (Other than Ice Cream, but I don't  really think Ice Cream is considered a recovery food. :)

And not only have I used them after running, but Lil Man was sick with a fever. We were worried about him getting dehydrated. So I gave him a grape PowerIce (knowing that it has electrolytes), and was relieved that he was able to get some liquid back into his body.

If you haven't tried PowerIce, I encourage you to do so. They can be purchased here.


Stay cool!
