You’ve had enough of feeling guilty about everything you eat

You’re fed up of trying every diet under the sun (none of which ever seem to work!)

You wish you had more time for you rather than always running around after everyone else

You want a more balanced life, but you’re not even sure that’s possible (?!)

Welcome to Wholeheartedly Healthy!

This blog is for the serial dieters ready to ditch the habit, the ladies that love food but want to get healthier and the busy mums just trying to hold it all together, get healthy and feel good at the same time – believe me when I say I know what it’s like to be all of those!

I’m Laura, a women’s wellbeing coach who’s really passionate about supporting women like you to ditch the food guilt, find their balance, sort out their mindset and start getting their needs met.

I’m a certified Holistic Health Coach with training in Neurolinguistic programming (NLP) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Through my Wholehearted Self Care Guide, membership programme The Balance Club, my Mindset Makeover Workshop and my 1-2-1 coaching, I help women discover their own Wholeheartedly Healthy life. Just think of me as your tattooed, no B*S best friend helping you find your way!

To get started why not grab a copy of my Wholeheartedly Healthy Quick Start Guide. It’s packed with practical tips on the Wholeheartedly Healthy approach to wellbeing as well as a sample two week meal plan if you enjoy recipe ideas.

A little more about me...

I live in North East England with my two year old son Finley and my husband James. Alongside loving my family and friends (obvs!) I love coffee, cinnamon rolls, peanut butter, yoga, all things a little woo woo, getting tattooed – when I’m feeling brave – and last but not least, a good cocktail.

I started Wholeheartedly Healthy as a healthy living blog back in 2010. At the time I’d successfully lost a lot of weight and wanted a place to share that journey. However I developed an unhealthy relationship with food and exercise that led to fertility issues and a very low unhealthy weight.

This was my big wake up call and I realised that being healthy was so much more than just what you eat and that number on the scale.

When I went on to have my son prematurely, and later discover he had been born with a heart defect, I realised how important self care is for not only getting through life’s tough moments, but for really thriving and actually creating a life that isn’t just healthy, but that’s happy too.

Being Wholeheartedly Healthy is about embracing self care, fixing your mindset so you can get out of your own way and ultimately finding a balance in each day that allows you to be your healthiest, happiest self.

Wholeheartedly Healthy is…

Loving your body whatever its size and shape because it’s bloody amazing!

Practicing self care and getting your needs met – you can’t pour from an empty cup

Finding what you need to be balanced each day (and remembering that might be a green smoothie and yoga one day and a slice of cake, glass of vino and a chat with your girlfriends on another!)

Ditching the diet and all the dieting mentality that comes with it: food guilt, bingeing, feeling not good enough…

Looking after your emotional and mental well being as much as your physical well being

  • Happy Sunday everyone! I've had the loveliest few days, drinks with my best friend on Friday night dancing to 90's dance tunes and getting rather drunk 🙈(first time I've been 'out' for a long long time!), yesterday watching movies with James and then today going to tackle our garden and make a proper Sunday dinner. Last week I had my astrological birth chart read by the lovely @leelampeacelove and one of the things she said was how important fun and joy is in my life, just another reminder to find magic in everyday ✨

  • On the blog this week I'm talking about minimalism and intentional living and how decluttering, creating a capsule wardrobe and generally being more aware of stuff I buy has improved my wellbeing. Link in profile! 
What are your thoughts on minimalism and intentional living?🌱

  • Happy International Women's Day! 💘
Honestly I wish I possessed the talent to write about being a woman and feminism as eloquently as so many others words I've read today, but what I can say is that one of the biggest shifts I've experienced over the last few years is embracing collaboration over competition with other women and ditching comparisionitis. We all totally rock 🙌🏻
I consider myself very lucky to be surrounded by so many incredible women IRL and online  who inspire me every day 💘

  • Anyone else love rearranging their stuff all the time? Took everything off my desk today and cleaned it then put it back slightly differently. Sometimes a quick refresh is as good as a change! .
