Day 2 - Calming the tantrum inside

OK, today was tough! All I could think of was the food that I couldn't have. I wanted to quit already. I regretted posting in my blog and telling people that I was going to do another Whole30. I should just learn to shut up! I thought to myself.

And then at home, there was left over banana cake with chocolate frosting... one of my favourite types of cake! I turned to my mom and told her I wanted a piece. She said "well have one!" To which I replied, "well then I will have failed" "Failed who?" "Myself!" She shrugged in response. As if she doesn't get why I'm challenging myself like this. I resisted.          ...Huh! Kind of cool that I didn't give in...

I had scheduled an hour to clean out my linen closet. I only did 15 minutes. But it made a huge difference already. I knew for sure that I was getting rid of two sheet sets that I'm giving to my sister, 6 bath towels, 6 hand towels, a blanket, a couple of terry cloth bath mats and a few curtain sets.

As I was contemplating tonight's decluttering project, I actually started thinking Oh! I should buy a container for my stuff to put in the linen closet! But then I remembered that this is a "no buy" month. So after the month is over, if I still feel like I need that type of container, I'll look into getting one. Chances are, I'll be able to make due with what I already have on hand.

Like I mentioned yesterday, I'm feeling out of it. I've been feeling out of it for the past few days. Hopefully things will turn around soon. I'm hoping for a good night's sleep tonight. I've scheduled in an hour of reading before bed.
