Want to Work With Me?


Over the years, hundreds of people have told me their stories about what they want to accomplish, but how life derailed them.

Now that I’m a retired teacher, I’m excited to use my training as a Fitness Nutrition Specialist combined with my skill set as an educator, plus my personal experience doing this thing later in life to help others reach their goals, too.  People want to change – it’s just difficult when there is a family, a career, and responsibilities.  I’m all about  empowerment, education, encouragement and support.

I can help you navigate the parts of the process that derail most people… 

  • lack of support
  • no accountability
  • not motivated
  • negative self-talk loops
  • difficulty setting new nutrition habits  

Honestly, the challenge is that it’s just damn hard to make it all work when you’re a busy adult. 

People think it’s willpower.  There is some truth to that – you do have to commit.  But when I tried to do it alone, I failed.  Repeatedly.

Then, I figured it out –  I can’t do this alone

I’ve worked with smart people, but my younger coaches didn’t have personal experience about how to make this all work with a “fully-booked-responsible-adult-person” life!

Lifting My Spirits Coaching Programs

Based on my own experience and what others have told me they needed, I’ve put together two programs – Nutrition Consulting and Accountability Coaching

Both programs include weekly, face-to-face online check-ins using Zoom video conferencing.  You will also have email support during the week, but I’m committed to having a live conversation with you once a week.

Accountability Coaching

  • This focus of this program is to help you establish those habits you’ve struggled with on your own.  The nutrition consulting described below is not part of this program.
  • Weekly, live video check-in calls. (15 min)
  • Help to set a big goal & create action plans each week to reach that goal.
  • My private coaching email address with replies within 24 hours, Monday-Friday.
  • Consistent source of support, knowledge, experience, and encouragement.
  • Free group online coaching sessions scheduled each week that are voluntary, but I’ll be there if you need to drop in between your check-ins.
  • Extra support from TeamLMS, a secret Facebook group just for my clients.
  • After working together for two months, any online classes I offer to the public will be forever free for you.

Nutrition Coaching

  • Weekly, live video check-in calls that are a little longer. (30 min)
  • Same goal setting and support as the accountability program.
  • Individualized, flexible nutrition program designed for you based on your goals, your schedule, food preferences, performance, and recovery.
  • I’ll help you organize food prep & teach you how to track food.  If I do my job, you won’t need me to help with this part for very long!
  • Free group coaching sessions scheduled each week that are voluntary, but I’ll be  there if you need to drop in between your check-ins.
  • Extra support from TeamLMS, a secret Facebook group just for my clients.
  • After working together for two months, any online classes I offer to the public will be forever free for you.

If I think I can help you reach your goals, we’ll set up free consultation so you can tell me more about your situation and we’ll decide which program is the best fit for you based on your needs.  I’ll go over the monthly rates at that time. 

After we visit, we’ll decide if we want to move forward.  We both need to be comfortable with the idea of working together.  That’s an important component for this to work for you. 

If I don’t think I’m the right coach for you, I’ll tell you.  You don’t have time or money to waste working with someone who can’t help you.  But if that’s the case,  I’ll offer suggestions for your next step so you won’t have to start over.

It can be scary to ask for help – I know.  I’ve been there.  I promise to help you one way or the other so you won’t have to start over again.   ~ Tammy
