Drop the All-or-Nothing Mentality

We are about to jump into the holidays… this is when I start to hear the all-or-nothing attitude from clients, friends and family! Some people are like, “nope, I’m not going to gain the 10 pounds this holiday. I am going to feel good. I am not going to eat any desserts. I’m going to be working out consistently. I’m going to be eating only healthy foods.” And then you’ve got the other side of the spectrum, which is usually, “oh, I missed a day, so I’ll miss a week. Oh, I’ll miss a month. Oh, I ate like crap last night, so what does it matter…

Episode #31: “1 Secret To Thrive” This Holiday!

http://media.blubrry.com/sexy_confident_life/p/www.annarenderer.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Episode-31-All-Or-Nothing-Mentality.mp3Podcast: Play in new window | DownloadThe ALL or NOTHING mentality is why most people fall off the deep end during the holiday’s. I suggest taking the ACCEPT and EXPECT mentality instead. Making it a point to write down what you will accept of your attitude and behaviors and what you will expect of yourself is how you can live a more intentional life. Being prepared for what’s to come is essential for success! If you’d l…

Are You Playing In The Shallow End Of Life?

There are two ways to solve a problem or tackle a big goal.   You can use a tactic or solution that helps you attack it from the surface …Or you can use a tactic or solution that helps you go deep to the core of the problem that is ultimately causing those symptoms on the surface.   Think about it… When you start to have chronic headaches, you can easily just continue to pop Advil every day to get rid of the symptoms, but that isn’t solving the deeper underlying problem as to why you are having headaches in the first place. It might be as simple as chronic dehydration or as serious as a brain t…

To Wear or Not To Wear The “Crown Of Health”

Robin Sharma said it so eloquently, “Health is the crown on a healthy man’s head that only a sick man can see”.   We take for granted the air we breathe, the healthy heart that beats over a trillion times a day, the liver, kidneys, pancreas and intestines that just operate for us without having to think about it…   Out of sight, out of mind. Right?   Unless you studied anatomy and physiology, you haven’t the slightest idea what’s going on inside your body.   I think fitness experts and doctors tend to forget that the average person hasn’t read up on this stuff…

Patience vs. Immediate Gratification

Let’s talk about the difference between our patience and the sense for immediate gratification.   I know a lot of us struggle with sustainability in our health and happiness. It’s a goal that a lot of people in my community have. We all want to feel and look our best, and it requires us to strengthen our mindset.   I don’t think we have to became the next Tony Robbins or Rene Brown. We just need little mind shifts… that’s all it really takes.   We need to shift our minds on how we’re conditioning ourselves for patience. It’s one of my virtues, because I’m not a patient p…

The Power of Progress vs. Need For Perfection

What the heck is with perfectionism? What’s perfect? Who defines perfect?   We’ve been brainwashed by everything that’s in the magazines, Hollywood, and on TV. All of the ideals that are in this world have told us what “perfect” is. And that’s what we want to achieve, right?   But isn’t beauty in the eye of the beholder? Is that the most fundamental lesson that was ever taught to us? Perfectionism that is splattered all over social platforms – the perfect, ideal bodies and the airbrushed magazine covers – is NOT reality!   Maybe since I have to be on TV and vid…

It Starts With Willpower But Ends Without Clarity…

Results.   It’s the one thing we want when we start the next fitness program, or jump into the next diet craze. We leap into these new things, hoping they will be the one thing that changes our habits and behaviors giving us the results we’re looking for.   But here’s the thing:   I created the Sexy Confident Woman Formula because I believe we need to build the foundation of our lives before we work towards the surface level solutions. Those solutions help us get the desired results, but they don’t help with sustainability.   Willpower vs. Clarity   If you rememb…
