Why hello there!
Happy Tuesday! I wish I had something super happy to report, but I spent most of my morning on hold and on the phone with unemployment, my old employer, and calling around to some prospective employers.
I am starting to get a little run down with it all, but trying to keep my spirits up. If anyone wants to send some good news my way though I will gladly take it! 🙂
Summer decided to show it’s face again today for some reason. Yesterday was about 68 here and then today the temperatures shot back up to around 90. I was getting spoiled for a few days there with the amazing temperatures.
I attempted to run a good amount of my run with the husband today. It has been so long since we have been able to run together. Unfortunately, the heat was killing us both so after 5.25 miles I cut our run short and decided to go inside and spend some time with the treadmill.
I finished the treadmill run in just under an hour, and proceeded to lay on the floor for 20 minutes.
I really think that this workout was harder than my actual tempo workout yesterday. I just felt so tired and my body wasn’t into it. I need to figure out my nutrition thing and get it under control, I think that is part of my body’s sluggishness.
To help the run go by a little quicker I got out my iPad and turned on an episode of Extreme Weightloss from my ABC app. It helped to make the time go by a little quicker, but my legs just never got into it today.
Run for the day = DONE! That is all that matters to me right now.
Okay now I need some feedback from my readers. I am in DESPERATE need of a hair cut. I haven’t really gotten a haircut since our wedding 2 years ago (I know that’s bad!) I let my hair grow out for the wedding and then I just liked it long so it stayed that way. It is long, stringy, and really gets knotted up when I run.
Here are some ones i’ve been looking at – I need some help:
Here are some things to keep in mind:
1. My husband is a fan of longer hair, so I don’t want to go TOO short. Plus in the past SHORT SHORT hasn’t looked good on me.
2. Due to our very limited budget I have to go a Great Clips type place in Erie to get it cut. That means I need the cut to be pretty simple.
3. I do have some layers around my face so I am not sure how that will effect the cut at all.
4. Here is a recent picture of me so you can see how terribly scraggly my current hair is:
Which style do you like best (I know they are all similar)? OR do you have another suggestion? I am clueless when it comes to hair so I am open to any suggestions!
A new haircut always makes me feel better! I really like all those pictures especially the first one. I haven’t cut my hair in over a year and I’m really wanting some style to it as well. Great job on your run even though you were feeling tired. My good news – I’m starting PT on Friday to help with my IT band – yay! 🙂 Have a good night!
I am such a hair cut wimp! Every time I get something drastic done I haven’t liked it and since I have to go somewhere lower cost and don’t know who I’m going to it makes me that much more nervous! Awesome news!! Hope it helps your IT Band and gets you back to running! Let me know how it goes!
Wow, impressive run!! There’s nothing like a great haircuit to put me in a good mood, my favorite from above is definitely the 1st. Hope your day gets better!
That is the one that I am leaning towards as well! Thanks 🙂 I am a hair cut wimp so hopefully it will turn out OK!
I think the first photo is super cute! Go for it! know what you mean, last year I chopped the majority of mine off and got a longer pixie. It was just the change I needed.
Wow you are much braver than I am! That is great! I am just thinking several inches off and then a style of some sort…just hope it turns out okay! 🙂
I like #2 because of the dramatic sweep of the cut, but then again I’m a guy who has had pretty much the same haircut for more than 35 years … (but I do help my wife decide 😉 )
All opinions are wanted! My husband helps me pick out just about everything – but hair he just seems to like longer so I promised him I won’t go too short 😉 Just need a change and “clean up” plus it is a MESS when I run! And since so much of my time is running now, I need to get that under control!
I like all of them but I think my favorite is the last one. Very classy!
Congratulations on sticking it out, and sorry for a bummer morning :(. I think I’m in the minority, but I like #2. I’m sure you’ll look great no matter what – post pictures!
