How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “you’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.

I am planning on incorporating this in to my warm up when I am working out in the week.

Personal Achievement.

Hey everyone,

I have had a great week. I have started a new workout regime on top of some personal training sessions and although it has been hard work I WANT to keep going!

Training on Sunday was brilliant. We have moved to another hall with an amazing smooooooth floor.

I am going to big myself up here but it is something that really means a lot to me.

It took what seemed like an age for me to get my min skills as I really struggled to get my laps on the sticky floor at our previous training space and it got me down a lot. I never felt like I would get my min skills and it left me feeling really deflated. I eventually got my laps on our old floor which is great but I had a massive confidence boost on Sunday.

We did laps and I got 26 in 5 but then we carried on for another 5 minutes and I got 51 in 10 :D I felt SO good afterwards.

Like I said in my last post. Onwards and upwards. I am excited to see how far I can progress now we have a floor which isn’t like skating on treacle.

Moving On.

Hey everyone,

After some major wobbles with my self confidence and over my ability to skate I went back to my sessions on Sunday 16th June and it was hard but I stay in there. The floor was so sticky I didn’t feel like I could skate.

It was the end of an era for the whole team because as of now we are on a new floor which is so smooth. I can’t wait to see how I can progress on this new surface.

I am so proud of my team mates and how far we have come and how much further we are going to go.

Onwards and upwards.

Love Sasha xXx
