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.


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!
