Today's #HAWMC prompt:
"This morning I looked in the mirror, and..."
Well, THIS morning I looked in the mirror and thought "wow, my hair actually looks cute this morning."
How'd that happen, you ask? Probably because when I went to bed at 10:33 PM, I barely moved until my alarm went off at 6:30 AM. Many nights I toss and turn - lately my allergies have been bad enough to even cause some snoring. If I've had a glass or two (or five) of wine, I often sleep VERY poorly -- waking up a couple of times and not being able to sleep past 5:30 AM.
Yesterday morning, when I first glanced in the mirror, had I not known better, I would have thought I'd been up all night -- red puffy eyes, still gluey with sleep. Wild bedhead. Dry skin. It wasn't pretty.
But this morning? Could have changed clothes and walked into work.
As I always say "the cycle starts with a good night's sleep" and as a result of last night's slumber, I had a hyper productive day at work, filled with good choices. Took the train to and fro; probably walked 2-3 miles in the skyway and made good food choices -- oatmeal mug for breakfast, home made soup and breadsticks for lunch, and a few pretzels as a snack while prepping dinner: pork tenderloin, sugar snap peas, and some herbed pasta salad.
Pretty excited to enjoy the night and the open windows and do it all over again.
Off and running,
