Pain is NOT a Lifestyle!

I love Saturday but hate when Rob's away. He hasn't been away over a weekend in years. But it's the nature of the job and I'll have to get used to it again. I planned plenty of things to keep me occupied. I took Tally for a nice walk, did some cleaning, invited a friend for supper this evening, and tomorrow I'm meeting my BFF for lunch, when we'll go to the Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Lunacy event. Then work on Monday. 

I tend to struggle a little with my eating habits when Rob is away. I was a mess early in the week. Loneliness snacking is the worst! But my WW meeting helped get me motivated and back on point and I've had a mostly a great week.

I'm still sticking to a mostly Paleo way of eating, along with sticking to my WW Smartpoints. It's pretty easy. Just spend points of protein and fats and eat vegetables and fruit to my heart's desire. My pain is managed best with this way of eating. That's the bottom line, letting food be my medicine. 

I'm making this Rachael Ray recipe for my company tonight. My sister made it and raved about it. Peaches, Vidalia Onion, and Sausage tray bake. I got some beautiful nectarines (the peaches were hard as rocks) at Sprouts Farmer's Market the other day and I'm excited. I love sweet and savory. 

We fared well in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Irma, but the previous week had a giant tree limb fall on the roof. So dealing with that was a bit of ball ache. Still have to meet with the insurance adjuster, that's going to be fun.

I'm off to do more cleaning. Bulletproof coffee gives me more energy than I know what to do with.

Have a fabulous weekend!
