  • Have you ever been so indecisive about something and plagued by perfectionism that you literally PARALYZE yourself from the start? 
That was me this weekend! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I for the life of me could not commit to a strength training routine this training cycle. The second guessing was REAL! 
Then today I opened my time hop and a quote I shared one year ago smacked me in the face! So I DECIDED to make a COMMITMENT and this afternoon I made good on that promise to myself. ⭐️ Perfection is the lowest standard one can set for themselves because it’s not obtainable. ⭐️ I’m looking for 10 IMPERFECT ladies to FINALLY commit to feeling CONFIDENT this summer! 
No more changing clothes. 
No more wearing pants in 90 degrees. 
I don’t care if you goal is mental or physical. 
I don’t want you to give up foods you love. 
I WANT you to radiate from the inside out. 
I WANT you to feel PROUD from the WORK it takes. 
If you realize you won’t get it right the first time and that you’re going to have to keep TRYING but that with each try you WILL progress — I want YOU here with me!

  • to be honest the last couple weeks have been kind of hard for my mental health. A lot of change mixed with some personal demons came at me full force one day. I took some time to be alone in my thoughts (in a positive way) and I did a lot of self reflecting. 
I was feeling sorry for myself. I felt ashamed that I’m not at the same point in my life as people I grew up around. I wasn’t living the life that I always pictured I’d be at this point in my life and it was hard for me to swallow, however, I’m a strong believer in that everything happens for a reason. I was jealous that people around me are happy in love and beginning their lives after graduation, getting married &/or having kids. But that’s just not where I’m at...and that’s OKAY. I will also not settle for what my life is like now. I’ve always been a dreamer even since I was a little kid. I’ve always wanted bigger and better for myself...and that’s never going to change. I think in my own ways I’ve grown so much. Everything that has happened to me is a lesson learned. 
I had to “delete” some people out of my life. Took some time to decide what I need in life and then move on. You don’t have to stay in a situation that doesn’t bring out the best in you. I deserve to be happy. I will not settle for being treated like a matter just for the moment. I want to be around people that love me. I’m not here to impress anybody, everything I do I’m doing it for me. 
Thank you, next 🍉♥️💋💕🍓 ///

  • Tod decided to take a rest day today.
-
Sometimes the best option is a nap and some good belly rubs🐶❤️
-
Not into belly rubs? 🙄 Then what’s your favorite rest day activity?

  • There IS life beyond eating disorders. Self-abusive behaviors DO get less tempting over time. Hunger signals & emotions DO get easier to read.
•
... And your whole perception of your body shifts... It’s still hard for me to understand sometimes that my body actually needs calories. For whatever reason this culture had me believing it doesn’t. 
I eat a very healthy diet, lots of fruit and veggies, some nuts/avocados, very limited starch/sugar/oil. Sometimes in the past I have seen this personal food pyramid as levels to unlock almost, if I practiced yoga I got cooked food if I ran I could have starch, that kind of thing. Now instead of inflicting those kinds of hateful “rules” on myself, I focus on BALANCE and looking at my diet from a bigger perspective. Sometimes I’m hungrier & crave heavier foods. Sometimes I fast intuitively. Now that I am becoming aware of my hormonal cycles again, I can see how they align with my eating patterns. (I use @clueapp which allows you to track things like cravings.) Turns out, a body’s needs are ever-changing, and understanding that is an important achievement in my quest to get intimate with myself.
•
These thoughts were very much stirred by @yogamaris post today about “earning” your food. My initial reaction to it was resistance & rationalization. But I thought about it harder.
Eat dinner! You don’t have to do anything to deserve it.

  • I keep idolising my ed. How I felt happier when I didn’t eat, how my body looked so much better starving than it is now, and how my life was better. But that’s not the truth. The truth is that my life SUCKED. And I have to remind myself of that all the time. I’m still struggling, but it’s slowly getting better, and my life now is so much more than it has ever been before. And I truly believe that I’m starting to live for real. Starting to appreciate life for what it is. Stop being afraid of it. I’m starting to live rather than just being alive, and it’s so wonderful. I still have to fight my mind every day, but knowing that I can have the energy to walk up the stairs, mess around with my brother, play with my dogs, feel happy. That’s worth everything! Not limiting my life to the tiny box of an eating disorder. I’m alive, and I am truly happy. Life will have its ups and downs, but I’m okay with that. The moment I’m living in is really all that matters, and right now it’s a feeling of happiness that I haven’t been experiencing for a LONG time. This is a picture of me being genuinely happy, enjoying the sun, enjoying my life. Take care of yourselves❤️

  • For the past few years, around days like #bellletstalk, #mentalhealthmonth and #edawarenessweek I read thousands of inspiring stories from people battling mental illness and write my own, hoping that that year, that hashtag, will be the one where I am finally brave enough to share my story.

Today I felt restless, realizing that a year ago today I went through one of the worst days of my life— I felt uneasy, like my body could sense the emotional trauma that went on that day. I took a moment to ground myself and look around me, and I felt hella grateful, because I started realizing how far I’ve come since then. So now I can talk.

Because there’s literally no shame in getting help, because there’s legit no reason why you should be going though this alone and because if you can’t make your own neurotransmitters, store bought is just fine. Because if I had never accepted these three facts, I would still be that very dark place I found myself in for years. And because if you’re finding yourself in a similar spot, know you don’t have to suffer in silence, and I’m always here if you need a hand 💖

We don’t need special hashtag dates to be talking about this. I’m done feeling scared from the stigma, the myths and the misconceptions, so I’m filming an IGTV q&a to start a conversation. Click the link my bio to ask anonymously and I’ll answer your questions in the video 🦋

  • DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE NOT LIVING UP TO YOUR POTENTIAL?
LIKE A FAKE?
INAUTHENTIC? 
Let's address this... STEP INTO YOUR AUTHENTICITY
a 4 week course
Fridays: 6/7, 6/14, 6/21, 6/28 | 11 - 12:30 pm | $299*
@mkemindbodywellness | Bayview, Wisco.

LIFE is a loaded word. Habitual Healing believes we are all the walking wounded, we are all in recovery from something. HH defines ‘recovery’ as a space to return to a state of equanimity in mind, body and spirit. This program is tailored to humans who are curious about the self-love movement, seeking body positivity, persons in need of human connection and to those who are sick of their own bullshit but do not know where to begin. I humbly welcome you.
Participants will commit to a four-week program led by Kaleigh Atkinson, artist, meditation/yoga instructor + passionate mental health advocate. Each session will meet on Fridays 11-12:30pm beginning June 7, held in Bayview at MKE MindBody Wellness.

Be prepared to ease into a spiritual program consisting of discussion, journaling, meditation, breath-work and restful yoga postures to support the restoration of your nervous system. This work may sound scary or ‘woo-woo’, it’s not. "Studies are providing scientific confirmation that sustained meditation practice can bring about enduring changes in brain function and the kind of transformation in behavior that dramatically ups the limits on psychological science’s ideas of human possibility.” *

Get out of your own way and stop being afraid. You can step into your authenticity — no one else is [insert your name], and that is your super power.

To inquire about registration please DM me *Your investment will be funding Kaleigh's film,

  • The first one was taken my junior year is HS which I can say was definitely the peak of my ED. I was training and dancing everyday, I wasn’t eating, and in that picture I’d just donated blood and decided to be okay to dance for an hour right after. When I first took that picture I thought I looked great. My arms and my legs looks so thin and with my oversized sweatshirt no one could really tell I’d lost a lot of weight. I looked like a dancer. But I was miserable. I was tired and light headed all the time. I couldn’t focus on anything long enough to finish work.... the second was taken about a month ago at my boyfriends fraternity formal. With one of my close friends from freshman year of college. The look on my face says it all. While every day is still an uphill battle, I look and feel so much better. I looked back at that first picture a few days ago and I couldn’t believe I used to tell myself that I was perfectly okay. Recovery is a long and often times difficult journey. But it is so worth it. You get not only your life back but your light as well. To Everyone out there struggling today, keep fighting! We are all rooting for you ✨✨✨💛💛 #edawareness #keepfighting #recovery #tbt #eatingdisorderrecovery #eating #journey #edrecovery

So everything‘s been going pretty much downhill lately. I‘m stressed all the time because of my exams. I can barely study because of what’s going on inside my brain. And stress makes it so much worse. I feel guilty because I don’t study as much as I wanted to. I absolutely hate oral exams and it freaks me out. My eating disorder‘s getting worse from day to day. It’s hard to fight against my depression at the moment. I have a constant need to cry but it feels like there are no tears left. And this is so frustrating. I need something to vent, everything’s just too much. It’s like I’m not really here, not fictioning, and the numbness takes over. All I want to do is to disappear for a while. Don’t get me wrong, I want to live, I want to get better, but I just need a break. I am exhausted and disappointed in myself.
•TW end•
But I‘ll fight against all of this. I know that I can and that there will be better days. You have to forgive yourself in order to grow. And it always seems impossible until it’s done.
Never give up guys. We got this💜 
I‘m so sorry that my recent posts have been so negative, there are going to be more positive ones soon, I promise❣️

  • For the past three days I’ve had countless corn dogs, tater tots, an entire pizza, beer, and potato chips. And it was AWESOME! Don’t ever fall into the trap of “getting your body ready for vacation”, cause I can promise you it ain’t worth it! •
Four years ago I would have been starving myself and spending countless hours at CrossFit everyday before going on any beach trip. The girl I was back then also couldn’t have done a headstand like this because she was so lightheaded from calorie counting she probably would have passed out 🤷🏼‍♀️ •
Vacations are meant to be enjoyed, and if we spend months and months dreading the swimsuit, then we forget to enjoy the most important part of vacays ... the rest, relaxation, and restoration!!
•
So here’s a pic of me doing a headstand ... that I didn’t know if I could hold ... because I had just woken up from a two hour nap on the beach💤🏝🤣 Enjoy yourself!! #EDawareness #EveryBodyIsABikiniBody #Namaste

  • just because i post myself online doesn't give you the right to a. touch me b. act like i'm single c. treat me any fucking differently. People seem to think they're so entitled because of the way i or other people present themselves online. But here's your not so friendly reminder that photos do not equal consent. You don't have a right to touch my butt because you saw it on a photo on instagram. if you think you're entitled to a woman's body because you saw it naked online then you realllllly need to rethink and reevaluate your life.

  • I noticed this morning SANS SCALE as i was trying on my old bathing suits to see what fit and I noticed that I am most definitely at my highest weight ever • majority of my clothes don’t fit like they used to, my body photographs differently, and I feel a lot different in general • there’s no negative here tho. I’m not mad abt it. I don’t have a medical reason to actively regulate my weight so why the fuck would i bother? • our bodies know where they want to be. We weren’t made to constantly work to lose weight and to be a specific pants size. No one gives a fuck how chunky a baby’s thighs are so why are mine any different?! • as mentioned previously, this is the summer of katie 2.0 and if that means I no longer fit my size 0-2 pants, SO BE IT • SCREW THE SCALE !!!WEIGHT IS JUST A NUMBER !!! NONE OF IT DEFINES ME !!! MIC DROP !!! Rant over lol #bitemeana

No one gives a fuck how chunky a baby’s thighs are so why are mine any different?! • as mentioned previously, this is the summer of katie 2.0 and if that means I no longer fit my size 0-2 pants, SO BE IT • SCREW THE SCALE !!!WEIGHT IS JUST A NUMBER !!! NONE OF IT DEFINES ME !!! MIC DROP !!! Rant over lol #bitemeana

  • Seeing yourself clearly.
•
After recovering from an eating disorder... learning to see myself as I really am, both physically and emotionally, has been a slow and complicated process - requiring radical amounts of support, self-compassion, empathy, and love.
•
I looked into my bathroom mirror this past weekend, and because I know my journey so well, I know my triggers. I could feel the old glasses of body dysmorphia wanting me to put them on. My inner critic was fighting for the mic with the soul-silencing voice of judgement.
But I know her game... and it’s a dizzying loop that I refuse to get on board with anymore.
But that wasn’t always the case.
•
Here’s the mind-blowing thing: shame, fear, addictions, and mental disorders and illnesses do not discriminate.
They simply do not.
It does not matter the shape or size of your body, how old you are, how far you’ve walked in recovery, how spiritual you are, or how great your life looks from the outside. This kind of suffering happens within and it can be so incredibly scary and isolating when it’s happening.
•
If you find yourself struggling with a negative body image, an addiction, or a mental illness -
I am so FOR you.
And the truest thing I know to say to you is this:
You are not alone.
And there is a path through.
No matter where you find yourself in your journey.
And counter to what other people may or may not say...
The path through has much more to do with learning to take a stance of being more in AWE of your body, your battle, your story...
Versus holding a stance of judgement and criticism towards it.
Empathy and compassion will always be more powerful than the voices from our past.
Always.
•
Instead of judgement or criticism,
Try this today:
Pay closer attention to how your body feels inside, how you might need to take care of your mental health, and ask yourself what you need in order to honor and take good care of yourself, your body and  your story.
You might need to talk to someone you trust, find a support group, drink a glass of water, or (the most revolutionary idea) you might simply need a nap or to go to bed early in order to try again and show up for yourself.

You are more whole than you know.

  • All of you. From what you eat, to who you spend your time with, to the words you speak. Why eat garbage? Why gift your time to toxic, draining people? Why create lies? 〰️Are you bored? Are you lonely? Are you mentally/emotionally sick? Whatever it is that’s in your way, keep fighting for wellness & to feel whole. For no one but yourself. Please... keep it real ✌🏽#habitualhealing

  • i was having a hard time sleeping and was feeling pretty down in general earlier so i sat down to watch a movie and i settled on girl, interrupted because it’s an old favorite of mine. it was weird though because i hadn’t watched it before as mentally ill as i am rn so it resonated with me very differently than the first couple times i saw it. i paused the movie toward the end, put on some shoes, and went outside for the first time in days. i just walked around by myself and watched the sun finish rising. it was very refreshing and i know i need to go out way more often. if i knew all it was going to take was angelina jolie and winona ryder to push me out of the house i could’ve done this a lot earlier lol... then i came back inside and finished the movie with dylan, and hopefully now i’ll get some rest. have a good day beautiful people. 💛 try and get outside if you can. it does make a difference.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, deload week is upon us. Thank f🤪ck.

Goal today was to build to a 'tough-ish' power snatch double in 10 mins. Finished on this set @43kg.

PSA: don't get a tongue piercing and train the day after, swelling makes it v hard to breathe 😅

Food & Control….
.
Your desire to control your weight didn't just occur out of nowhere—it occurred as an attempt to control something else in your life. Perhaps you felt undesirable and believed that if you're thin, you will land the partner of your dreams, people would love you more, or you'd be taken more seriously at work.
.
Ultimately, trying to control your weight is really just an attempt to control the things in your life that feel uncontrollable—such as how others view you. The truth is, though, that no matter how hard you try, you simply cannot control how others feel about you.
.
Regardless of your pants size—there will inevitably be someone who doesn't like you. And irrespective of how much you try to control what you eat—fear and discomfort will still occur.
.
The *only* thing you can do with the uncertainties in life….is to stop trying so hard to control them.
.
You may find it challenging to not be in control, but eventually, you'll notice how your life improves the more that you keep this trait in check. Ask yourself if you really need to be thin to be worthy and work to examine where you got this belief in the first place.
.
Be willing not always to have things done your way. For example, allow your partner to choose which restaurant you eat at next instead of you always choosing. Or, try finding another way where you can practice letting go of your constant need for control and allowing things to unfold organically.
.
Make sure to also challenge yourself by not always expecting things to be perfect (try aiming for "good enough" instead).
.
Take a look below and ask yourself: what am I *really* trying to control with my food behaviors?
.
—Having low self-esteem
.
—Wanting respect from others
.
—Not dealing with or expressing uncomfortable emotions
.
—Feelings of emptiness inside
.
—Having perfectionistic or unrealistic standards
.
—To gain power over others
.
—To feel special or unique
.
—Having little trust in self or others
.
Is there anything on here that I could have missed? Sound off below…...
.

  • I typically try to leave the word “should” out of my vocabulary (it sets us up for so much comparison!) but this one feels justified. I wish this didn’t need to but said but…
If you’re thirsty, you should drink.
If you need to pee, you should pee.
And if you’re hungry, you should eat.

Your body is not trying to trick you. If you’re hungry, you need to eat. You don’t need to drink water, or eat a mint, or brush your teeth, or take a shower, or do anything else to distract yourself from your own body. 
You need to eat. Ignoring your hunger cues only disconnects you further from your body and sets you up to be physically and mentally uncomfortable later. I often see people ignoring their hunger only to be preoccupied with food (that’s what’s supposed to happen when you’re hungry!) and/or eating everything in the kitchen once it’s “time” to eat. This is your weekly reminder that your body knows what you need. You need to eat for energy, you need to eat for concentration, you need to eat to feel embodied 🙌🏽
