What Would Betty Do Logo Change: It’s Not Katy Perry Pink

Playing with Haircolor Since I’d posted the results of the InStyle hair app last week, I figured that I should share what I actually ended up doing. In just a few hours at the salon, I went from this (earlier this spring): To something much closer to my natural color (not that I’ve seen my […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Change: The Recipe Solution

Last week, I posted a question on Facebook: how do you organize the loose recipes that you’ve torn out of magazines, newspapers, etc? It’s a problem that’s been plaguing me ever since I broke my foot in 2010. A group of friends brought me huge stockpiles of old magazines — everything from The New Yorker […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Change: Giving Acupuncture a Try

With everything that’s been going on in the past few months, I decided that it was time for a change. While I’m still a Western medicine girl, born and bred, I decided to step outside the box and give acupuncture a try. Why? Because my conversation with the acupuncturist was the first one of the […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Change: Moving in Slow Motion

Last Wednesday night, I went to the UCSF RunSafe clinic. You might remember that I did the other part of the clinic, the VO2 max and lactate threshold training, back in December.

What Would Betty Do Logo Follow THIS Mother

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited and downright bewildered I was when I was contacted about being this week’s “Follow This Mother” on Another Mother Runner. I’m a huge fan of the blog and the book, Run Like a Mother, but it’s a huge leap to go from being a fan to […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Incremental Changes

I’ve lost my way. I started this blog in 2010 to encourage people to make small changes in their lives, the kind of things that seem almost ridiculously small on their own, but can add up to significant changes in health and wellbeing over time. I’ve been focusing a lot on cooking, because it’s something […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Resolutions: Is Later Better?

I don’t make new year’s resolutions. After all, every day is the start of a new year and a fresh chance to make changes in your life. But judging by the crowd at my gym I’m clearly in the minority. And when I say crowd, I mean that the place is packed to the rafters. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Another One Bites the Dust

You probably made a few resolutions before the ball dropped on New Year’s Eve. So… how are you doing with that? You’ve probably broken a few. You’re probably feeling a little bit guilty about that. And you probably feel like the world’s biggest slacker. Here’s a tip: ask around the office or call your friends. […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Why Write the Betty Blog?

This blog is about life. We’ve been conditioned to expect things to be all or nothing. We make dramatic resolutions on December 31st that we break by January 2, and then feel terrible about ourselves. We think that we can’t change at all because our annual, dramatic attempts at change just don’t work. We get […] Read More
