your side and palms facing forward. Bend your elbows forward so

Just a few exercises will help you with your legs. One good one
is lunges, either walking or stationary. When you are lunging, be
careful about your form. Form is very important in all exercises to
prevent injury and get the results you want. Be sure to not go so far
that your toe is behind you knee. Always be able to see your toe on
your front leg and don't go down so far that your leg is bent to more
than 90 degrees. Keep your eyes and shoulders up. If you are doing
walking lunges go about 25 feet, and repeat that 3-4 times. Or
stationary, do 3 sets of about 8-10. Holding dumbbells in your hands
will increase your workout and you will see better toning results. If
you have a leg press machine at a gym or your home, that is good too.
Doing the same 3 sets of 8-10 reps. Calf raises are also simple you
can do at home. Just stand in the edge of the stairs or ledge on the
balls of your feet, and push up to stand on your tip-toes. Do about
2-3 sets of 15-20 of these or until you feel a pretty good burn .
The reps and weight vary depending on your fitness levels before and
after the baby.

You can care for chapped lips and swollen lips.
Dry and chapped lips are painful and irritating. Keep your lips smooth
and having a nice smile are important. Here are some tips how to
prevent chapped swollen lips. Protecting your lips is important for
your appearance and your health.
The first thing you need to do is look at the rooms or your work
place environment. If you work in dry heated air this will cause you
to lick your lips more frequently. This will cause the moisture in
them to evaporate more readily. Licking your lips has the same drying
effect as washing your hands constantly it takes the moisture out of
your skin. You need to try and not lick your lips and get some
moisture in the room. You can get cold sores and bacterial infection
from lips that are already damaged and dried out.
You need to get a lip balm that are sold over the counter. Lip
balms work by sealing in the moisture and provide a protective
barrier. You can also try petroleum jelly and put a small amount on
your lips. If you work outside the sun's ultraviolet rays can damage
the skin on your lips. You need to protect them with any type of
ointment that can be put on the lips. Windy conditions can also dry
out your lips and cause them to crack. Try not to wipe the lip balm
off when working outside in sunny windy conditions.
If you are a female you can buy lipstick that includes a
sunscreen. Apply plenty of lipstick to your bottom lip as it is more
susceptible to getting chapped. Lipstick acts as a moisturizer too so
it does double duty to prevent chapped lips. Another thing for you to
look at is your toothpaste and mouth wash. You could be causing the
red rough lips by using a toothpaste that doe not agree with the skin
on your lips. Try changing them and see if the redness clears up. Make
sure to rinse your mouth when you finish brushing your teeth and put
on some lip balm. Make sure to watch your diet. Pepper, mustard, orange
juice can dry out your lips even barbecue sauce can cause chapped
