This week on the show, is a personal trainer, diet abolitionist and author of Physical Disobedience, Sarah Hays Coomer. As a mother to a daughter, and as a woman herself, Vickie, like most women likely, spends a significant amount of time thinking about body image. In a society that promotes an often unrealistic female physical ideal, there’s a real craft to creating a healthy, positive body image for ourselves and encourage the same for the girls and women who surround us. Vickie and Sarah talk about the challenges of connecting to our body, celebrating our strengths and how appreciation for our physical bodies can be the wildest form of social disobedience.
