What Would Betty Do Logo Hi! I Miss You.

Slacker Blogger Offers Apology I have finally, FINALLY managed to find enough time in my week to cook new things. I haven’t yet managed to find time to post about these new things. Baby steps, people. I’m roughly 17% over capacity at this point, with no sign of things slowing down, which is terrible because […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo The Quest for a Good Sports Bra

On Sports Bras Gentlemen, this may be your cue to leave. Or not. Whatever suits your fancy. Back in the day, long long ago, Moving Comfort made a really great sports bra. It was called the Vero A/B and it was awesome. When I wore it, nothing moved. Nothing chafed. Nothing peeked out. Naturally, they […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: To Failure

Strength Training to Failure   As I mentioned last week, I’ve started a new weight training program with a trainer. I’ve long known that strength training is a pretty large gap in my fitness routine, something that I do half-heartedly and without any real knowledge of what I’m doing. I know that working with heavier […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Trying Something New

Weight Training After months of being wishy-washy about what my next fitness thing would be, I finally committed to something: I signed up for a month with a personal trainer, working exclusively with weight training.

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: More Stuff About Bikes

Why No Bike Lanes, America? Yeah, this is another one of those bikey posts, the kind where I tell you that The Assistant rode 93.7 miles last month. Ninety three point seven. If you’d told me six months ago that┬áI’d be riding 93.7 miles a month, I would have laughed. But the 6 year old? […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Review: Fitbit Flex

Three Months with Fitbit Flex I am a former owner of a Fitbit One. I thought that the One was an excellent product. It accurately tracked steps, and did fun stuff like measuring floors climbed (elevation change is a cool trick when you run and bike). My issue with the One was the form factor: […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Skip the Runs, Run the Races

I Like Racing Better Than Training I have been an abysmally bad runner lately. Sometimes I struggle to think of myself as a runner when I can’t drag my butt out for even the shortest training run.┬áNaturally, I have registered my ill-prepared self for three 5k races this month. Wait, what? Naturally? Hey, I like […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: Two Weeks With My Fitbit

Fitbit Product Review At Christmas, my in-laws gave me an Amazon gift card. This is surprisingly hard to spend. I buy lots of stuff from Amazon — books, office supplies, kitchen gear — but I wanted to use my Christmas gift on something cool, something that I probably wouldn’t have bought for myself otherwise. Hello, […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Training: When Work Gets In the Way

Making Time for Exercise It’s now three weeks after my half marathon. Since then, I’ve been eating like it’s my job. Oh, and of course, work has gotten crazy, including a daily conference call right smack dab in the middle of my usual workout time. This means that I’m getting to the gym about twice […] Read More
