OMG, the boss brought in Zumbarons (the macarons I was going on about last week!) and I’m on a Fast Day today- nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!
He got a big box, so I picked two (he said I could!) and have put them in the fridge for tomorrow. I think the ones I have are popcorn flavour, and pecan Danish, but M wasn’t sure exactly which flavours were in the box, so I had to try and do a bit of research on the internet. Annoyingly the Adriano Zumbo website doesn’t have pictures alongside their flavours list, so I just had to Google the flavours from the website I liked the sound of and hope someone had stuck a picture on their blog or article or something, so I think those are the flavours I have for tomorrow…..
The God of Fast Days is testing me big time!!!!
Also, one of our engineers managed to break his arm at the weekend playing football/soccer, but that’s just a bit of non-food-related trivia for you.
10.04am: uh oh, people keep asking if I’ve had my macarons yet! Not sure how to get around this without admitting that I do Fast Days. The two other admin girls know I do, but the bosses don’t, and I think I’d be laughed out of the office if I told them!! Hmmm, not sure how long I can keep making excuses for why I’ve not eaten them yet…..
10.49pm: Feel hungry, although think it’s mostly in my head rather than actually being hungry. So I just distracted myself by booking some holiday- whoop whoop! Friends visiting for Christmas, so booked my days off there, and two days for my bday in Jan so I have an extra long weekend- we’re planning on going to Melbourne! 🙂 Have an extra three days to play with between now and then, so I may take a long weekend off in Oct or something, for some chilled out “me-time” – work has been so stressful I’m not sure I’ll make it if I don’t have any holiday between now and Christmas!!
11.33am: Dude, this is a long day. Why’s it not lunchtime yet? Can’t believe it’s only `11.30- boooo!
2.25pm: Had lunch about 1pm. It was the same soup I had yesterday- chicken mushroom n wild rice. Was rather creamy blandness and I didn’t enjoy it cos it was boring. Didn’t taste bad or anything like that, just boring. Oh well, my gumbo dinner is good, I will just have to look forward to that!
4.05pm: tum is gurgling now, me want food! Water it is then….
7.51pm: felt a bit sick on the bus home, it would have been nice to be able to have a piece of toast to settle myself when I got home. But I didn’t, I behaved.
Don’t think I will do 2 days in a row again unless really desperate. I haven’t been particularly hungrier than I usually am on a regular Fast Day, and even with the macarons I wasn’t actually tempted to eat them today. I even popped to the supermarket after work and that was alright too (despite the feeling sick part). BUT, 2 days in a row does make you rather feel deprived and like you’re starving, even if you’re not. It is pretty do-able really, but it just isn’t much fun.
