Hi I am Laura Stout and I'm The Freedomista!
I eat, breathe and sleep a healthy lifestyle! It's my passion, and what I preach on a daily basis and I thrive on helping others feel their frickin' best too.
THIS my friend, is what truly excites me.
I call myself The Freedomista because I truly believe that life is meant for living. Too many people go through life not living it.
They get up go to work and don’t have any true passions they don’t have anything that excites them that makes them alive. I want to help people realize that life is meant for living that having the ability to create your life by design is Freedom! Here's my motto:
Have I always been healthy…..ummm NO!
When I was 25 I made a major life decision I dedided to never go on a diet again and to change my lifestyle. I learned how to cook, and eat healthy, and make exercise a daily part of my life. I lost 50 pounds in just a few months and there was no dieting involved.
Here is a pic of me before, and now.
How'd I do it? I just learned how to eat good and exercise and take care of me!
I grew up in Marin County in California.
I then lived in Lake Tahoe Calfornia for 15 years with my Husband Josh.
I love the Mountains and Outdoors. I thrive being outside. Smelling the fresh mountain air I am truly a mountain girl through and through.
I was a preschool teacher for 16 years and owned my own non profit preschool and loved it.
I gave up teaching for my husband to follow his career which took us to Boulder, Colorado. This is where my life changed forever!
Boulder opened my eyes to such a healthy lifestyle. It is where I decided to follow my passion of health and food and start helping others feel their best too. It opened my eyes to new opportunities and exciting new things! It is where I got excited about designing my life and exactly how I wanted to live. It is where I became an Entrepreneur and took back my life on my terms.
I started working from home and I love that! Now I am completely determined to help others live the life they were meant to live so they too can thrive in life!
I decided to take the leap, follow my heart and passion and do what I love; nutrition and whole living.
This has been one of the best decisions of my life.
A few fun things about me:
- I love to learn about nutrition and I read about it all the time
- I am gluten free, 100% organic, and I am a water snob!
- I love sports! I run, mountain bike, hike, snowboard, skate ski,surf, lift weights, and practice yoga, and used to do triathlons for fun!
- I am an early riser and am pretty much a zombie by 8pm
- I am a Bikram Yoga Addict for over 13 years now!
- I live in Yoga clothes and am a yoga clothes addict as well! Be sure to check out my yoga line.
- I am an aries so I am feisty but loyal!
- I occasionally swear... Ok, ok I swear more than that...shhhhh
- I meditate daily and practice gratitude always!
- I love smiling at grumpy people just to see what they will do. Ha ha!
- I don’t have kids but love them.
- I love, love, love to cook!
- I am obsessed with farmers Markets wherever I go.
Here are a few pictures of me and my husband Josh, living life
Where I am today
Business quickly became another passion of mine. I have never been so determined to help others create freedom in their lives and live life the way it’s meant to be lived. My life dramatically changed and had success right out the gate.
THIS, my friend, is what truly excites me and I am determined to help others do the same.
