get fit with Sweaty Betty

    Hi, Beth. Thanks for the skort review.

    Is the skirt really shorter than the shorts, as appears in the pictures? Do the shorts stay put while you exercise , or do they ride up? What about the waistband? Does it stay in place or does it roll over? And the pocket(s) – not big enough for a phone? I know that it’s nice to listen to music, books, etc while walking or talk with parents/friends, & having to carry the phone is a pain.

      the shorts stay put. the skirt is about the same length as the shorts i pulled them down a scrunch so you could see both skirt and shorts. the pocket in the back is not big enough for a phone. only keys or i.d. honestly, i invested in an Apple Watch last year for just that reason. now i can listen to audiobooks or music on my walks with oscar without worrying if i have a pocket big enough to hold my phone. but, it’s just as fun to go on walks and just enjoy the sights and sounds of the neighborhood.

    Love your posts. Some of the other websites for women our age seem to think you have to dress a certain way but you show that all styles are acceptable no matter what age if you do it tastefully. You and I have very similar taste. Wear what makes you happy about yourself and feel the glow!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks so much for your sweet words. style is always about personal preference. life is too short to get caught up in should’s and shouldn’ts.

    I love the way Oscar poses with you. Look at his legs. He’s posing. Love 💕 it.
    I think that is one of the best tanks I’ve seen this year. The sides are really nice. I’m trying to keep fit but the heat forces us inside unless we go out early.

    A great tip I got years ago from a personal trainer is to walk with a backpack that contains about 10-15% of your body weight. Doesn’t have to be fancy – bottles of water, or ziplocks of rice in there for the weight. But it will keep your core more engaged, and in doing that and carrying the weight, you get twice the calorie burn for no extra time and not much extra effort. Who doesn’t love that?!

    Cute workout clothes! And great message too. I started OTF a couple of years ago when I was still (just) 40, and a third of the workout is weight based training. I was amazed at how much better it made me feel.

  5. Love your yoga pants shown here-wow! Really sharp looking!
    Love all your looks! It’s you! Beautiful…

  6. Good Beth keep that in shape you have an excellent figure!!
    That is why you look good in all your outfits.
    Have a nice rest after your workout

    At 70, I play golf 5 times a week and while this may make a great skort for walking, biking and gym wear, it’s not a golf skirt. Golfers need pockets to hold an extra ball and tees and maybe a ball marker. Every golf skort and dress will have pockets!

    • Beth Djalali says:

      yes, you golfers have to have plenty of pockets for your stash. every single member of my family from my parents to my kiddos are golf fanatics. yours truly is not. this skort does have a pocket but just one in the back.

    Enjoyed your post. I walk every day and I am going to look into that skort-nice idea. I sometimes use a waist belt with a small pack attached for my keys, phone and anything else I might need on my walk. Nice to have Oscar walking with you.

    Loved your helpful post today. Have been walking for years and doing water cardio classes. So nice that the YMCA is opened once again for water classes. Have missed those for over a year and a half. Good to see us older women enjoying our water work outs once again. We also work on body core and strength by using water weights. Thank you for keeping us informed on the importance of exercise at any age!
