days 2 & 3

Saturday, June 04, 2011

I don't know if this should count as day 3. Yesterday I ate Gummi Cherries from the Death Valley Nut & Candy company. Upon searching the Internet I discovered with great joy that original Haribro cherry gummis DO NOT have gelatin. Alas, the knockoffs at the Nut & Candy Company do.

Arrrrgh!

I'm so ashamed of myself for caving into my sweet tooth. My mom brought them to me at work (I haven't told her about my vegetarian experiment - guess I should have!) and it was a stressful day. And of course, gummis are my all time favorite. But why didn't I just eat something else to assuage my craving?

So, I had a hiccup on day 2. The only good thing about it is that I didn't do what I normally do when I fail a dietary goal, which is give in and go hog wild. Literally. I at least managed to resist for the rest of the day.

It's not as if I crave meat (yet). And I feel great not eating it. But gelatin! Argh! It's in everything. For example, I'm a little tired of Greek yogurt and I wanted to try something else. Almost all the non-Greek yogurts Fresh & Easy have gelatin.

I did much better today. All veggie. I even went out to eat and maintained my resolve. We won't talk about the calories.

My coworker loaned me some vegetarian cookbooks/magazines and I've been visiting tons of vegetarian websites for ideas. Thanks for the suggestions. emoticon

    I am allergic to chocolate and nuts.. so what is my favorite? Gummies! I understand giving in.. I am sure I will be there VERY soon! It's still the honeymoon period for me.. my life change and I are still really happy together.. but give it a few days and I am sure I will want to file for divorce!

    Way to go not going hog wild! I hope I have the same self control that you did when I am faced with a temptation!

    Happy losing!
