Hey there! I’m Loretta.


Over the past few years I have experienced some challenging hardships, but I have also had the most positive and life changing growth along the way. As a result, I improved my health, fitness level, and mental well being. I have experienced major benefits in all aspects of my life all because of some changes and choices I made. I am a firm believer that we as humans have plenty of choices when it comes to ultimately finding happiness and life fulfillment. Unfortunately, so many of us accept that life has to be a certain way and that the path we are currently on www.lokallifestyle.comis the one we must be on forever. We get so caught up in the chaos that we find ourselves feeling stuck. How disappointing is it to wake up everyday feeling like you aren’t on the right path, to feel like you have no control over your very own precious life? People tend to believe that our situations overpower our decisions, when I know that is not true. Whether it be in your mental well being, health, career, or relationships, we all have the power to find success and contentment in those areas. This mentality is a lifestyle. There is not a quick path that just make
s life a big ball of sunshine. This lifestyle change requires effort, dedication, and focus on a daily basis. However, we all know that tomorrow isn’t promised, so why keep following the path that leads to something other than contentment? If you’re ready to do that, then you’ve come to the right place! I believe everyone can find what they seek and I’m here to help you become a believer too. So throw that doubt holding you back out the window because it’s time to get on your very own personalized, true path that does lead to a life of fulfillment! 


Live with Intention. Choose Your Lifestyle.


I am absolutely passionate about animals, the environment, and giving back. That is the root of what makes me who I am and I make it my purpose to better this world each day. (Yes, I know that sound like a Miss America response, but it’s true!). I am also dedicated to health, fitness, and mental well being. My second home and therapy center is the gym! I love seeing progress and the healthy stress relief that comes from lifting weights.
I want to inspire others to make positive changes in their lives and in the world. My future has plenty of lofty achievements waiting for me and I’m currently on the path to pursue them.

Determined. Selfless. Conscientious. Indecisive. Workaholic. Passionate. Introvert. Creative. Type A. Thoughtful…


…All describe me. I guess you could add “funny” to that list too, but isn’t it like taboo to call yourself “funny”?

My sister, Leila (click here to check out her blog), is my best friend and I’m not quite sure where I would be without her in my life. I have three fur babies: two dogs (Nadia & Bambi) that are foster failures and a cat (Tango). My pets are pretty much my life and they are spoiled beyond belief. I also foster animals and volunteer at my local animal shelter. I told you I am passionate about animals!

I just left the teaching world to enter my next chapter of life. Though I’m not 100% certain as to where that road leads me yet, I am trusting in myself. Also, I am currently in grad school pursuing an MBA! Through the past few years, I have gained an interest in the business world and see myself owning my own business one day!

 “Pressure Makes Diamonds” has been my quote to live by for many years.

That pretty much sums me up in a nutshell, whatever that means!

Let’s keep in touch as we both follow our paths to happiness, the paths we belong on, of course!
