Finding Time To Exercise After PregnancyWritten by Beverley Brooke
If exercise is so obviously answer to losing weight after childbirth, then why arenít more women doing it? The answer isnít as tricky as you may think.
One problem most new mothers will report is that they donít feel that they have enough time to exercise after birth. This is a complaint among just about anyone who has ever attempted to set up a routine exercise program, not just women who have given birth!
While it is true that taking care of your newborn should be first and foremost in your mind, it is also important that you set aside time for your own health and well being. This includes setting aside enough time to engage in routine exercise. Finding time may be as simple as blocking off a certain number of hours during day to work out.
If you are having trouble finding time to exercise, there are a number of things you can do to ensure that you stick with some type of exercise routine:
Set aside a specific time every day to exercise. Even if you just set aside 10 minutes of time in morning, your body will benefit from regular exercise. Remember that stretching, yoga and other forms of activity are also considered exercise, and will help your body return to its pre-pregnancy shape much more quickly.
Ask your partner to help. Ask your partner or another friend or family member if they would be willing to watch your newborn for a set time during week. This could be two or three times per week , or as often as every other day.
How to Care for LambswoolWritten by Mark Shenton
How to Care for Lambswool We all love Lambswool, its hard to Image world without our old favourite knitted Lambswool Cardigan, we all love wearing Lambswool sweaters and feeling snug and warm when we have a nice, soft to touch, Lambswool garment on our backs. Natural fibres like Lambswool and wool are both highly durable and environmentally friendly, but, Lambswool and wool cardigans and sweaters may however be negatively affected by some components in heavy-duty washing powders if incorrectly treated in laundering. This is not to say that Lambswool and wool is in any way weak or inferior, merely that as a natural material, like skin or hair, it can be harmed by aggressive agencies.
What to avoid There are two main types of ingredient that may result in deterioration of a Lambswool cardigan or wool sweater washed under incorrect conditions:
Sorry but it gets a little technical here.
Biological Detergents In addition to normal surfactants, emulsifiers, perfumes etc contained in ordinary detergents, so-called Ďbioí detergents also include a small quantity of enzymes. These are protein digesting biological catalysts, and are effective at decomposing stains or soiling in which protinaceous material is main constituent. Egg, blood, and most other food stains etc are all protein based and will be effectively removed by enzyme-containing detergents. The problem is that like fur and hair, histological structure of fibre in Lambswool cardigans and sweaters is based on polypeptide and disulphide linked protein Keratin. This can itself be affected by biological components in some of these detergents. It is possible that enzymes may attack cell membrane complex of wool fibres, and lead to disintegration of structure into its component cortical cells, this leads to a hole filled Lambswool garment.
