Other than that Mrs. Lincoln?
This weekend was not good in "eatinghealthyland". My husband went out of town for several days to visit family. Since I use all my leave time caring for my 95 year old Dad out on the West Coast, I couldn't join him as I can't afford to take a day off without pay with expenses for Dad that run into the thousands per month (he will NOT live with us or any of the grandkids who have offered, wanting to die in the house he outlived two wives and two children in - but that requires nursing care).
My in-laws understand, but it made for a lonely weekend. After a big blow out meal for the husband of macaroni and cheese with bacon and pie before he left - I was left alone with leftovers, red wine and sandwich stuff, and Fig Newtons.
Let's just say I should not have got on the scale this morning as I'd gained two pounds back.
He's home and tonight it was crockpot chicken drizzled with a Bragg Organic Vinaigrette (the BEST) with herbs and steamed veggies. But I still feel like. . . but you know, the Fig Newtons with a small glass of red wine before a bubble bath almost made it worth it.
