WIAW: Leap Day Eve

Happy Leap Day, friends!

Without details (sorry), I can tell you, at 9:42 in the morning, that today has already been a very strange, very disorienting day.  Is that a Leap Day thing?

Well, no, I guess not. Not according to Google or Wikipedia. I guess that means I’m special. Right? Sure.

Anyway, yesterday was kind of an “off” day as a WIAW. I’m still feeling weird since my food poisoning debacle this weekend, so I waver between still feeling a little nauseated and not eating much and then being starving. I’m also sticking with very carb-based meals.

No work out yesterday for this very reason.

Breakfast: 2 pieces of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and a sliced banana.

Lunch: Tortellini Soup with a toasted English muffin & butter.

Snack: unpictured pretzels & a string cheese.

Later, two unpictured IPAs. Regretted.

Late Dinner: Green Giant Healthy Weight frozen veggie/ black bean mix with shredded parmesan.

I wasn’t actually hungry, but felt it was probably a wise choice after consuming two beers on a nearly empty stomach.

Some fun facts about Leap Day (from NowPublic and Vabsite):

  • “You can figure out which year will be a leap year by dividing the year by 4. If it comes out evenly, it’s a leap year.”
  • “Traditionally, Leap day is the one day that women can propose to men.”
  • “The chances of being born on a Leap Year are 1 in 1,461.”
  • “Salaried employees are working for free this February 29 since paychecks are based on a 365-day year.”
  • “February 29 is not recognized by some computer services and software programs that power everything from banking to life insurance.”

Interesting!
