Get Healthy Now

I can honestly say that my success is primarily thanks to the support of Get Healthy Now, and especially the wellness coaching program. It has given me the mental support and encouragement I’ve needed, which has boosted my confidence throughout this past year tremendously!

Get Healthy Now Wellness Center Member of the Month - November 

Congratulations: Laura!

 

November Member of the Month

Laura Westberg, Program Manager (KY Spinal Cord Injury Research Center); Part-time Lecturer (College of Education and Human Development).

Meet Laura Westberg, an almost three year UofL faculty member, who enjoys getting together with friends, attending local festivals and events, spending time with her dog – Ruby, reading, listening to music, watching sports, home decorating, cooking, and walking.

In the last six months, Laura participated in Get Healthy Now’s health and weight management program, Weigh to Wellness, because she wanted to lose weight and “knew I needed to get on track for healthy eating and exercising for that to happen.” As a result of her participation in the course, she was able to utilize the GHN Personal Training service. “This was a great experience for me,” she said, “It allowed me to achieve the goal of consistently exercising and having specific training and guidance.” To date, Laura has lost 15 pounds and is currently participating in her second Weigh to Wellness program. 

Visiting the GHN Wellness Center three to four times per week to exercise and attend Tai Chi classes has also helped Laura stay motivated on her fitness journey, as her new goal is to lose 10-15 more pounds. “Additionally,” she added, “I keep several goals posted at my desk at work and try to follow them every day.” These goals include sleeping six to eight hours, eating breakfast, drinking water, eat small meals, maintain good nutrition, exercise, and reduce stress.

While Laura doesn’t have a specific “Bucket List,” she would like to start visiting all the National Parks in the United States that she has not been to. But in the meantime, she will continue “spending lots of time working out!” at GHN and inspiring us! Keep up the great work, Laura!
