It was Fall Ya'll

I had an absolute blast with this photo-shoot Ashley was so much fun to work with!

This was honestly my first photo-shoot back in 5 years. It was slow at first but pretty much ever since a few months back into modeling it was like I had never left.

However I did have to kinda remember everything which was very different, but it hasn’t really changed.

I have another photo-shoot the 3rd of April and I’m super excited for it because it’s a full body paint shoot. I’ve wanted to do one of those for a really long time!

Then I have another photo-shoot the 24th and the 25th of April two different photographers.

I try to stay busy through the weekend because I’m always so busy all week I can’t stand to be bored whenever I’m home.

 

Some of you might not know but I’m a dental assistant through the week and I model on the weekend.

I am traveling for all three of my next photo-shoots.

I hope you guys keep reading my blog and don’t forget to submit to my newsletter so I can keep you updated that way as well. I swear no spam.

XOXO  💋❤

Boudoir with Hannah Reed

I love boudoir, This is the first boudoir shoot I had done in 6 years. I wasn’t as shy as I am at most photoshoots. However, that’s what I started out doing whenever I started modeling.

I think sometimes I’m more creative with boudoir than other shoots. I don’t know why that is though.

I guess it’s because that’s what I started out doing and that’s what I’m used to. I’ve just got to get out there more and spread my wings.

But, I’m working on that at the moment. It just takes time and anything worth having takes time.

XOXO

ENJOY!

Spring Photo Shoot

I had a photo shoot with Nicholas Allen as the Photographer and Brandy Funk did the Hair and Makeup. I absolutely loved it! It was not what I’m used to but it was AMAZING! They are spring pictures and I’m very happy with them.

Here’s another picture from yesterday as well. I have another photo shoot on the 7th of March but I’m not expecting to get those pictures back right away like I did these. So I will write about it and there will be pictures of getting ready but no pictures of the real thing yet. But I really hope you guys ENJOY!

Blog Remodel

Hey Everyone I came to the conclusion a long time ago the MS is apart of my life, not my whole life. Therefore I’m going to start writing my blog about something else, MS will still be in it, however it will not be the whole part of the blog.

I hope you understand.

History Of MS

1838 – 1868 First Finding 

An autopsy dating back to 1838 were among the first sightings of MS. The report included detailed images, these images showed what we now know as plaques or scar tissue (caused by inflammation in the central nervous system).

A French professor named Jean-Martin Charcot made an association between another woman’s autopsy. She exhibited tremors, slurred speech, irregular eye movements when alive.

Charcot correctly assumed the lesions made the symptoms happen. But he did not know what caused the mysterious disease. He wanted to describe the disease and give it a name. At that time, he offered no suggestion for treatment.

 

1870’s Official Recognition

In the 1870’s MS was FINALLY recognized as a disease! Two neurologists, Dr. Walter Moxen in England, and Dr. Edward Seguin in New York observed a range of many people.

They learned that MS affects females more than males, that MS isn’t strictly genetic. Also, parents didn’t necessarily pass the disease down to their children.

 
 
 

1930’s Breakthrough

As you all may know the first half of the 20th century saw a boom of medical breakthroughs that helped the medical community study the progression and symptoms of MS. It is now possible to do all those cool things that you could never do before like detect abnormalities in spinal cord fluid.

Dr. Thomas Rivers of New York’s Rockefeller Institute proved through the testing of lab animals that MS is not a viral disease of the immune system.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society was established in the 1940’s, they continue to support MS.

1960’s The Immune System

Even an idea that MS was linked to the immune system was still being explored throughout the 1940’s and 1950’s. The connection wasn’t made until the next decade.

1960’s the doctors and researchers knew that they had one theory, the immune system attacked the myelin coating of the nerves and acted like an autoimmune disease.

1980’s First MRI for MS

Major technological Advances in magnetic resonance imaging, and it became a useful diagnostic tool for MS. According to an article in Healthline 1981, an MRI was first used to view the brain of someone with MS. This new technology shows damage incurred by MS even when people didn’t experience outward symptoms.

 
 

1990’s Drug Treatments

The 1990’s scientists came out with more effective drug treatments or actually drug treatments in general because before 1990’s there really were not any.

So now they could treat MS more effectively especially now that they know more about it.

 

2000’s: Still, We Fight

It’s still unknown what causes MS or demyelinating lesions but according to Healthline a study in 2012 of Neurology reported that vitamin D may protect against MS. Another study in the Annals of Neurology proposed that oxygen may help prevent damage.

I know I’ve said something about Vitamin D before. I take a lot of Vitamin to boost my moods and to help my MS.

 

 

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and many other organizations continue to search for treatment/research to improve the quality of life for people with MS.

Balsamic Roasted New Potatoes With Asparagus

I’m addicted to vegetables especially asparagus! If you like vegetables than this recipe is for you. It is amazing and its not bad for you, with MS we have to watch what we eat and I believe this is suitable because I’ve been eating it for a while now. 

So, comforting and so flavorful, I think this is one of my favorite recipes in my recipe Stache. Like I said before I make it one night and I just meal prep it for the rest of the week, then it lasts all week until I make another recipe.

It’s very easy to do and prep time takes less than 30 minutes, and maybe a 40 minute cook. 

 
 

Ingredients

  • 1 kg new potatoes, cut into quarters
  • 250 g asparagus tips, into 2-inch pieces or halves
  • 2 tbsp. garlic-infused olive oil
  • 4 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • A generous pinch of salt and pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200C/390F.
  2. In a large roasting tin, add olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt. Add the potatoes and toss to coat fully before roasting for 20 minutes.
  3. After 20 minutes, add the asparagus with a little extra olive oil, only if needed. Toss to coat and cook for another 15 minutes.
  4. Season with extra balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.
  5. Serve and Enjoy!😊

MS patients – health

With MS you are a whole new you, so there is a whole new diet. You do not eat any of the good stuff I’m just kidding according to Matt Embry at MShope, you should eat healthy and make sure you’re not risking your health.

9 Best Exercises to Boost Wellness With Multiple Sclerosis

Cardio Workouts

working out in a pool can be a great physical activity for those with MS. Swimming, water walking ans water aerobics can be adapted to a broad range of MS symptoms, from mild to severe. Over heating can worsen MS symptoms, so make sure the water in the pool isn’t too warm. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society recommends a water temperature between 80 and 84 degrees F.

 

Wall Squats: Strength Training

Strength training should be apart of your exercise plan if you have MS, and wall squats will help strengthen your leg muscles. 

  • Stand about a foot from the wall, with your back to the wall.
  • Lean back so your shoulders, torso, and hips are flat against the wall.
  • Slowly slide down the wall about an inch, but not to where your booty is all the way out. Bending your knees and keeping your body flat against the wall so that your knees are parallel (or nearly parallel) to the floor.
  • Hold that position for about 5 seconds and then push with your legs to the starting position.

Begin with about five repetitions until you familiarize yourself with the movements, if you fall down its okay get back up and try again. Just get to familiarize yourself with how far you can go down and come back up with a good form.

If your knees bother you don’t slide down as low.

Hand weights and leg weights can be added to this exercise but I do not recommend them until you get comfortable with what you are doing.  

Modified Plank and Russian Twist: Safer Core Strengthening 

Traditional planks are hard for some people with MS, if they are hard for you try a modified plank (pictured on right.)

  • Lie on your stomach or on a exercise mat, with your elbows close to your sides. Directly under your shoulders, palms down and fingers facing forward. 
  • Engage your Ab/Core muscles, it should feel like you are tightening a corset around your ribs, waist and lower torso.
  • Slowly lift your torso and the upper part of your thighs off the mat, while knees remain on mat.
  • Do not allow your lower back to sag or the hips to lift up in the air.
    • You should remain away from the ears. (if wrist pain is a issue, drop the elbows.)

Try this position a couple of minutes before moving onto an elbow plank so you understand the concept of how to engage your core.

Elbow Plank: Core Strengthening

The abs as well as the shoulders, arms, and legs. If performed on a regular basis, it can even improve your mental focus and make you a stronger person overall.
 

Proper Plank Form:

  • Keep body in a straight line, ears, shoulder, hips. and heels. 
  • Elbows directly under shoulders.
  • Keep stomach muscles and core muscles tight.
  • Squeeze glutes while maintaining correct form.
 
The plank is an isometric exercise, which means it allows you to train your core without moving. This also means its very versatile, since you can do it anywhere, anytime.

 

Glute Bridge: Multi-Muscle Conditioning

This exercise is great for working out your legs, glutes, lower back, and abdominal muscles.

  • Lie on back, with your hands at your sides.
  • Bring your feet in towards your glutes, keep your feet flat on the floor.
  • Contract stomach muscle, pulling your belly button button in towards your spine.
  • Exhale as you lift your hips by tightening your glute muscles. At the top of the movement, your body should form a diagonal line, from your knees to your chest.
  • Pause briefly and then inhale as you restore to the starting position.
  • Work up to 10 to 12 repetitions.

 

Modified Push Up: Strength Training

Let’s be honest: Push-up’s are hard! Especially if you are just getting into a fitness routine, sometimes you don’t have the strength needed to perform a full push-up and that’s okay!

  • Begin in a kneeling position on a mat with hands below shoulders and knees behind hips so back is angled and long.
  • Tuck toes under, tighten abdominals, and bend elbows to lower chest toward floor. Keep your eyes on the front of your fingertips so neck stays long.
  • Press chest back up in start position.
  • Repeat for desired number of repetitions.  

Bicep Curl to Overhead Press: Upper Body Strengthening

Works triceps, chest. shoulders, biceps, and back.

  • Stand with your feet hip-width apart, holding a weight in each hand with your arms in front of your body, palms facing forward. (If two weights is too heavy just use one.)
  • Slowly curl your hands toward your shoulders, squeezing your biceps. Keep your elbow tight to the sides of your body.
  • Rotate the weights so your palms are facing in toward either side of your face. 
  • Press the weights overhead to touch, straightening your elbows completely. Make sure to keep your core engaged and hips tucked under to avoid arching your lower back as you lift your arms.
  • Slowly bend your elbows to lower the weights back down to your shoulders. Then, rotate the weights so your palms are facing toward your body and bring them back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for desired number of repetitions. 10 or 12 Don’t over do it.

Lunges: Lower Body Strengthening 

I’m going to be honest with you guy… My body hates lunges! But they are really good for your body, not only do they help sculpt and tone your lower body, but they also make everyday tasks easier. As one of the basic functional movement patterns. lunges mimic the way we walk, run and climb stairs.

  • Stand with your feet together and your hands by your sides, on your hips, or in prayer position in front of your chest. Step your right leg back keeping both toes facing forward.
  • Bend your left knee, keeping your knee directly over your ankle. Your right heel should be lifted off the ground, your right knee should be hovering above the ground (but not touching it) keep your abs tight and lean your chest forward slightly to work your glutes.
  • Hold for one to two seconds, then return to standing position. 
  • Repeat 10 to 15 times alternating sides.

Calf Raises: Balance Training 

It works the calf muscles and the two muscles that attach the heal bone via your Achilles tendon – and the plantaris, that tendon that most of us know as plantar fasciitis. This move is great to improve ankle stability, strength, and subsequently overall balance.

  •  Stand on flat surface with your toes pointed straight ahead.
  • Lift your heels off the floor to flex calf muscle.
  • Pause for a moment.
  • Then slowly return to the floor, in starting position.
  • Repeat
