Optimal weight and inward happiness didn’t always come easy for me. My own personal journey toward great health motivated me to receive my training through International Coaching Academy as a Professional Life Coach, American Council on Exercise as a Certified Health Coach and Certified Personal Trainer. I had the wonderful privilege of hosting a talk show worldwide on Voice America called Discovering Your Inner Thinner Peace. I’m Certified with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and trained in more than one hundred dietary theories and studied a variety of practical lifestyle coaching methods. Drawing on this knowledge, I will help you create a completely personalized “roadmap to health” that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and goals.
I get asked often, “Laurie, do you even know what it’s like to be overweight?” Yes, I do. I was 36 years old an d 50 lbs overweight. I have a wonderful husband and two great kids, but always kept myself last on the list, sound familiar? I fell into depression, exhaustion and lost my love for life. Finally, sick and tired of being sick and tired, I had my light bulb moment! I went to my family doctor for my annual appointment, guess what, she said “Mrs. Runyan you need a treadmill test.” She said I was overweight, stressed and depressed. I needed a treadmill test to determine how bad these things had affected my health. Needless to say, I was very upset. I thought, what I have done to myself? I must say I decided to take control of my life and the next day I put myself back on the to-do list. I first explored my inward emotions examining exactly how I got to this point in life. I addressed the depression, and my negative mindset. I had to soul search and address my inward emotions. I had been harboring low self-esteem and self doubt and it was time to explore these feelings.
