Salsa Workout And Outdoor Run

I did my 40 minutes Sizzling Salsa workout and followed by 15 minutes outdoor run, this morning. Then I did a lot of stretching afterwards to make sure that my muscles won't be stiff specially on the lower body area.

The weather is great for my outdoor run but to make sure that I will not have a direct heat from the sun, I run as early as 6:30am. I am using some skin exfoliation products for my acne so my skin is very sensitive to sunlight. But this will not stop me from doing my fitness plan.

I cannot run on weekdays because of my schedule that prohibits me from running early in the morning, so I want to make sure to do my outdoor run on the weekend.

More On Dance Than Cardio Workout

Today I did my 45 minutes Fiesta Fitness DVD Workout. I didn't run because I had to do some phonecalls.

It's not an intense sweating workout but I did sweat. It's more on dancing than a cardio workout which is fun to begin with. I did a lot of stretching afterwards to ease some back pain.

I am looking forward doing Gissele's Toning workout tomorrow. I am still thinking if I will do the combined cardio toning with abs or just the toning with abs, since I haven't tried the customized version of the DVD.

I am really having fun working out using my DVD workout. There is actually some DVD that is on my wishlist which is on sale only for this week. But I am trying to save the money on paypal for our travel. Gzzzzz!!!!

3 Months Routine Workout DVDs

I just did my 40 minutes Salsa Dance Workout DVD and then I did my 15 minutes outdoor run. I did a lot of stretching and I feel so good after!! I feel so energized yet tired enough to have a good sleep.

I am already settled with working on my routine workout schedule that is good for 3 months. I need to buy at least 3 more dvds to complete the no repetition DVD workout so my body will continue to work hard with different moves everyday. But since I don't have enough budget yet, I might hold the thoughts of buying more dvds until I have enough money to buy some. For the meantime, I will enjoy workout with all the workout dvds that I have...

All About My Workout DVDs

I have completed all the workout routine schedule for three months using my Workout DVDs. I am trying not to repeat any workout DVD for three months so my body will not used to the same movement to continue to work hard, speed up my metabolism and burn more calories.

I only need to buy few more Workout DVDs to complete all the routine schedule without repeating any of it. I need one of Kelly Coffey's Long workout dvd, one 30minutes solution toning workout dvd.

I am also thinking of adding one more week of Dance workout using Lisa's 5 Days Latin Dance workout.

I also want to buy the Julianne Just Dance DVD because I love her Cardio Ballroom DVD. However, the ratings is not as good as her Cardio Ballroom.

Then I also want to buy this 30 minutes Belly Dance workout since I realized how fun it is to do the Belly dancing.

But I guess I will have to wait for a couple of months since I have to save the money for our trip.

Skin Cancer: Types, Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

Skin cancer is one type of cancer that suffered by many people. Skin cancer is caused by skin cells that grow abnormally and uncontrollably that can spread to other parts of the body and can damage surrounding tissue. There are 3 types of skin cancer:

1. Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma is one of the most common skin cancer and suffered by many people. This type of skin cancer is not spread to other parts of the body, but cancer cells can multiply and cause damage to surrounding skin tissue. Some factors that can cause this type of skin cancer are:

  • Bright skin

  • Frequent exposure to sunlight

  • a weakened immune system

  • Burns

  • X-Ray

Signs and Symptoms
Normally, the body part that is often attacked by this type of skin cancer (Basal Cell Carcinoma) is the face, neck and scalp. Signs and symptoms that can be recognized is a lump on the skin that has a bright color. These bumps have a reddish color and has a rising edge and slightly blackish color. Other sign and symptoms is abnormalities in the scar tissue and wounds that do not heal.

The method that can be used to diagnose this type of skin cancer is by clinical examination and histopathology. This method is done by taking samples of the skin which is considered as the cancerous tissue (biopsy).

Treatment of this type of skin cancer is by surgical removal of skin tissue that was attacked by cancer. Another treatment method that can be done is by radiation, cryosurgery, Electrosurgery, Photodinamic Therapy, Laser beams and chemotherapy.

2. Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Another type of skin cancer is Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Usually, this type of skin cancers suffered by men, especially the elderly. Causes of Squamous Cell Carcinoma is epidermal keratinocyte cell malignancy. This type of skin cancer can spread to other parts of the body and usually suffered by people who live in the tropics.

Just as with Basal Cell Carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma is caused by several factors, such as the frequency of excessive sun exposure, the virus, the body's immune system is weak, chemicals and abnormalities in scar tissue. Signs and symptoms of this type of skin cancer is a lump and wounds that do not heal. Diagnosis and treatment of patients with this type of skin cancer are not much different with basal cell carcinoma.

3. Malignant Melanoma
Malignant melanoma is one of the most dangerous skin cancer. This type of skin cancer can develop through a mole that arise in the human body. Cancer cells grow from the melanocytes (skin cells that function to produce melanin pigment).

Signs and Symptoms
Signs and symptoms of this type of skin cancer are:

  • Forms, moles have an irregular shape (asymmetric) and uneven edges mole.

  • Size, the size of moles continue to grow, even larger than 6 mm.

  • Color, the color of moles turn into brownish or reddish.

  • Itching, usually, moles will feel itchy or even painful.

Similar to Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma, diagnosis of this type of skin cancer (malignant melanoma) can be done by biopsy.

Malignant melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. This type of skin cancer can spread to other parts of the body, such as the lymph glands. The method of treatment can be performed in patients with this type of skin cancer is by surgical removal of cancerous tissue. If cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body, it must be performed further surgery to remove the cancerous tissue. If the cancer cells spread to the lymph glands, the lymph glands should be removed.
