Start Exercising Today

Hi Everybody, it's almost time to say goodbye to 2011. I hope it was a good one for you. Now it's time to look ahead and focus on 2012. This is the perfect time to make a pact with yourself to exercise more. I have uploaded many exercise videos to help motivate you to make exercise a regular part of your life. So, how about starting tomorrow, January 1, 2012, you do just 10 minutes of high-impact cardio exercise three times a week. I have uploaded on YouTube two terrific 10-minute cardio workouts. If you are new to aerobic exercise, that's great, you may need to modify the movements. Remember not to just stop if you feel winded, you must keep moving a bit until your heart rate comes back down to normal. You will love the new-found energy that exercise brings you. Also, research indicates that just 10 minutes of high-impact exercise can boost a women's bone strength significantly.

Happy New Year and I'll see you on YouTube,

Should You Wash Pre-Washed Lettuce

A YouTube viewer recently wrote asking if she needs to wash the salad that she buys in a bag that has already been pre washed. The answer is positively yes! Although the salad has been pre washed, that does not mean it is free from contaminants that can make you very ill. You may remember about the spinach that was being washed in a ravine near a cow farm and the water to wash the spinach contained e. coli bacterium. Many people got very sick and even died. Rule of thumb is to always wash all produce before eating, including pre washed bagged lettuces. The best way to do this is to empty the contents in a very large bowl and fill it with cool water. Swish the lettuce around very well. Then remove the lettuce and place it in a colander, drain the water and repeat this process again. Finish it off with a cold water rinse of the letter while it is in your colander. Now you can prepare your salad and know it safe and clean.

Can I Get an Infection from a Bikini Wax?

Hi YouTips4u, I was thinking of getting a bikini wax before I go on vacation, can I get an infection from it? I don't want to be uncomfortable while I'm away.

YouTips4U ans. Hi, the answer is yes. If the area isn't properly cleaned before the waxing is done it could cause you to get inflamed hair follicles which can lead to the development of an a skin infection. Be sure the aesthetician uses an antibacterial soap prior to the waxing. Then after the waxing, she should apply an anti-inflammatory cream to calm your skin. It's a good idea for you to apply an over-the-counter antibiotic cream on the area for 2 days to prevent ingrown hairs. Remember, having your hair ripped out of your follicles is traumatic for your skin and for the follicles. The quicker you can calm the skin down the better. Applying an ice pack to the area when you arrive home can be very helpful as well.

Thanks for your question. See you on YouTube,
