I had a follow appointment with Michelle at Northampton Wellness Center. The last time I met with her I was complaining of being tired, foggy headed and I wanted to know about food allergies.
It has been over a year since I have seen her (Too long!) and today I spoke about being too fat and not being able to sleep at night.
Remember I told you the last time I was there I was low on Testosterone? I said what she gave me to try and help didn’t really do anything for me. A month isn’t long enough and I should have stayed with it longer but I didn’t. So today she is having me try an OTC Progesterone cream. Hopefully this will increase my energy and help me sleep.
She also gave me Melatonin. I had been taking it but she said to take between 1-6 pills at night! I was taking 2 a night so that may not have been enough. She also gave me Cortisol manager to help promote sleep. I go to sleep at about 10:00 and wake up between 2-3 and often times can’t get back to sleep. The lack of sleep could also attribute to some weight gain (although I doubt it, let’s be real)
Michelle also gave me Chromium to try to help curb sugar cravings. While I don’t crave sweets I do crave carbs which just really turn into sugar. Michelle suggested I cut back on carbs and eat them at only one meal. I was planning to do this anyway so I am glad her advice matched up with my plan!
So, I will post a follow up soon and let you know how it’s all going.
Tropical Mint Smoothie (Not a fan) I didn’t like the consistency
Grapes and cinnamon almonds
Taco bell – 3 tacos but didn’t eat the shells = almost no stuffing in the shells and was still hungry
Chocolate covered almonds
Beef taco salad
