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!
