Happy Friday and almost American Thanksgiving, friends! How was your week?
Mine was pretty great, because I found out I get to attend IDEA World Fitness BlogFest for FREE! You have NO idea how excited I am to meet some of my fellow Sweat Pink Ambassadors and IDEA Inspired Bloggers in person, hang out for the weekend in LA, network, earn some CEUs for my strength coach certification and learn all about how to create a better blog/coaching business. The conference is in July, so I’ve got lots of time to save up for my plane ticket. Fellow SPAs: Who wants to share a room???
Thank you all for sharing my first attempt at a “podcast” this week and my post yesterday about why I’m not spending money on small gifts and holiday treats this year. I’m sure I’ll be doing some holiday baking because I love to do it, but diverting some of the funds I would have spent on such things to charity causes instead.
Oiselle’s Lux Running gloves – A winter running gear must-have. They actually keep my hands toasty on runs AND they’re iPhone friendly
Oiselle’s Gilman Vest – An added layer of warmth and visibility on my chilly 5 a.m. runs
40 min interval run in the dark down creepy, foggy roads in the middle of nowhere. The creepiness made me sprint faster. At least if anyone was around they could see me in my @oiselle Gilman vest! Good purchase for creepy early morning runs #chasethebird #flystyle #oiselleflock #oiselle #sweatpink #running #runchat #fitfam #fitfluential #fitfashion A photo posted by Bri (@runliftyogi) on

My Escents aromatherapy diffuser – Lavender, cedarwood and arctic are my go-tos right now
All the sales 100% Pure keeps having so I can stock up!
On the blog today: How I cleared up my skin after 15 years of cystic acne using alternative and natural methods. I didn’t really want to talk about this on the blog since this topic isn’t really related to running, lifting weights or doing yoga. Although it’s related to eating healthy, it’s a bit more personal than I usually like to get. But I thought since it’s about self-care and mental health I may as well share my story. Plus, if it helps someone else struggling with the same issues, even better. runliftyoga.com | Featuring products from @100percentpure @thegreenkiss @indie_lee and inspiration from the lovely @jesrunonorganic A photo posted by Bri (@runliftyogi) on
