Thanks for the suggestions! I made up a huge batch of quinoa and beans for lunch everyday, and it has been a lifesaver. I seperated my snacks (dried fruit and such) into little baggies as well on Sunday, now I just grab and go!
I'm back to having a big smoothie every morning and LOVING IT. It's like having dessert for breakfast, and it has made a huge difference in my energy level (err, as much as possible without being sick getting in the way).
CAT Scan tonight, fingers crossed it comes back clear!

I have been feeling GREAT the last few days! I've decided not to touch the scale for alittle while, but I can tell by the fit of my clothes that the pounds are once again back to melting off. I have been eating fantastic, and working out like a mad woman.
CN Tower climb is getting closer!!

That's awesome that you're fighting to stay on track in spite of the health issues; I know how devastating it can be to just start making a lifestyle change and get derailed by a sudden injury or illness...Most people would give up completely, so I respect you for sticking with it!

I have some recipes online that may be useful for you: since I try to keep most of them as simple as possible for busy people and non-cooks they might work for your kitchen limitations. Check them out here if you like! I definitely agree with lobsteriffic that it's way easier both to stay on track and save time to prep food for the week in advance - good going taking that tip and running with it!

Thank you marcella! I will check that out now!

WOW I can't believe how good I feel! I have been 100% on track with my diet-I almost have to force myself to have cheats every now and then. My clothes fit amazing-what an amazing feeling! My fitness is even better then before I got sick. I'm currently in a fitness challenge, so am working out up to 4 hours a day and I always feel like I could keep going.

Summer is getting closer, and I am DETERMINED to buy my very first bikini this year. No backing out! If I don't have bikini pictures posted in a couple of months, someone needs to kick my butt.

Lobsteriffic-Not yet, it's this Saturday. Less then 2 days away, I am so excited! Saturday will be crazy, I'll be waking up at 2AM so we make it to Toronto in time for the 6AM registration. I'll be sure to get pictures!

P.s.
Thanks for all your support, it really means a lot!

And I almost forgot-On March 19th, I ran my very first 5Km. I have always wanted to run, but I am not built for it. Of course, I'm STILL not built for it! But I have enough knowledge now to know how to correct my patellofemoral and fix shin splints. I hadn't ran for months before this day because of being sick (and of course I was about 10 pounds heavier at this point thanks to not working out) so I was relying on pure determination.
I came in with an impressive time of 35:28 (ok ok, not so impressive. But I couldn't have been happier!).

This was a major accomplishment for me, and was a HUGE confidence booster for me. It made me realize just what I can do when I put my mind to it, and I have been pushing myself to try things I never thought I could do since then.

(Please ignore the "I'm not dead?" face)

Very cool! Way to keep going!

I'm curious to see what my time would be. 28 min sounds fast for that many stairs!

Just a very quick update-I currently don't have internet, and it took me losing it to realize how addicted I was to this forum LOL.
I'm loving how things are going right now and can't wait to take some progress pictures soon!

On June 5th, exactly one month today, I will be running my first 8Km! It's called Beat Beethoven, where a live orchestra will be playing Beethoven for 50 minutes and the goal is to run 8Km and get back in time to hear them finish playing. It will be a lot of fun! I have only just started running again, so I have a lot of work to do this next month.
