My story

Thank you for visiting The Healthy Sooner!

My name is Laura Gallegly, and I teach 7th grade Spanish in Edmond, Oklahoma.  I started this blog as a way to share new thoughts and ideas related to living a full and prosperous life.  While I have always been an active, health-minded person, a recent recurrence of ovarian cancer has led me to kick my approach to healthy living up a notch.

I have been married to my high-school sweetheart, Jay, for almost three years.  I am so lucky to have a husband who is always up for trying something new and will literally eat anything!  We are always researching, experimenting, and embarking on new health adventures together.
Jay and I have two dog children, Oliver (a beagle) and Wendy (a cocker spaniel).  I talk a lot about these guys. 
Aside from food and fitness, I love spending time with friends and family, reading, crafting, wine drinking, and decorating my new house.

I hope you enjoy the blog!
