Assuming you are creating either a Beamer presentation or a Beamer 
article, you can add the "Beamer Resumable Enumerate" module by Jürgen 
Spitmüller. It adds a list type called "Enumerate-Resume" that magically 
picks up numbering where the previous enumeration left off. (In the GUI, 
it will look as if the numbering started over with 1, but in the 
compiled document it will continue with the previous enumeration.)

For reasons that elude me, it is not shipped with LyX, but you can grab 
it from Jürgen's web site:
