Thank you for helping me brainstorm & think “outside of the box,” @cornelia.sabrina & @KaLinda (Admin) ! I know I was overthinking it. Ideally, I’m seeking to “get back on track” & follow Massy’s meal plan, so I spend too much time finding menus that will especially help me on Wednesdays & Thursdays when I’m on campus. I didn’t consider upping my heaviest caloric meal to be breakfast. I can see how ideal this would be to help with daily consistency.
The first half of this year, I’ve focused on muscle-building menus, but the summer heat & two personal setbacks left me not eating some lunches/dinners. I’m now looking to lean out & re-start with the Fat Loss nutrition, so now my caloric intake is lower (loss of appetite during the summer made me regress on my appetite).
All of Massy’s weekly menus are a mixture of cold/hot meals, so I’ll find a way to creatively arrange ingredients for more snacks & create 2 meals a day. Today I started Elevate 1 W1 menu for this week which helps, but tomorrow when I go on campus, I’ll add more veggies from lunch/dinner menus for the breakfast sandwich. For morning snack, I added 2 scoops of peanut butter in my protein smoothie with pineapple & added spinach to make it heartier. I’ll do this for on-campus days, since it’s hard to whip out rice cakes & add peanut butter to them. Healthy fruits & snacking on raw veggies sounds easier since they’re easy to hide when students walk in.
Kalinda, those coffee bombs sound like an excellent idea! I’d never heard of them, but I will research online for recipes. Thank you both again!!! 💪😊
