Sugar Cravings Galore

Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge Day 7: Touchy subject.
I'm not a person that loves sugar. In fact, I hate it most of the time. On weekends at parties I can easily turn down cakes and cookies. But at work, when I'm stressed out or when I'm home and feeling lonely or moody, I cannot. Gave in to cookies yesterday from the vending machine. Although I fit them into my goals, I thought long and hard about how I didn't need it and I could always get something healthier, but alas, I failed.
So stress and lonely boredom are my triggers. I'm going to put a limit on what I can get from vending machines money-wise. They have trail mix, nuts, beef sticks, and beef jerky in a couple. And have meals (sandwiches, lunchables, etc) in the other so on days like today when I didn't have anything to bring for lunch, I need to have options. But any money I spend on candies or unhealthy snacks at work, I have to set aside that same amount (in addition) and I'll make someone donate it to a cause I don't like. Maybe that will help me out!
Also working on not letting the stress overtake my rational thoughts. It took me a solid 10 minutes of arguing over the cookies yesterday and the stressed side won. No more. Getting my coworker involved with that to help me have an additional rational side.
