Happy Leap Year!

Feb 29th, the day when the girls in my office gang up and plead, beg and send me multiple emails to make chocolate brownies for them. I of course, had to agree because there's only so many pictures of fluffy kittens with their hands in prayer that a girl can take!
So I made them last night and of course I had to eat some of the batter that was left in the bowl and of course I had to eat the bit that broke off when I took it out the pan and it was still too hot and of course, I have to sample one today to make sure that I'm not poisoning everyone but I am ok with all of this. I think it's unrealistic of me to never eat sweet things again and this is where I've been going wrong. My all or nothing mentality. Did I eat right yesterday aside from the brownie? I did and I will so so again today despite having one brownie. Then I'm going to line dancing so I can sweat it all out :)
Tomorrow I am going for an evening out with the girls. They'll be drinking and food and dancing and I'm looking forward to it all, especially because I haven't done my usual trick this week and just started eating badly a week in advance. I even made sure I ran an extra day last week to make up for the fact that I won't be running tomorrow night and thus my schedule is on track. Huzzah!
In other news, I was in a mini bus coming to the office from the car park with an Emirati man who I swear does not shower with water but perfume. It was so overpowering I almost gagged. I can still smell it now, almost an hour later. Blerugh!
