Steps: 10, 654.

Breakfast: 2 -3 cups coffee (seems regular), 1/2 grilled salmon patty, apple in the car driving to work – seems to make the drive less stressful

Snack: banana after a 2-hour talk to the FBI academy in Cleveland about wellness. These are the people (there were a fair number of female agents too) protecting us, so any time I’m asked to do this in and around Cleveland I try to find a way to do it.

Lunch: Subway foot-long veggie (no cheese, no oil—I love me) sandwich at main campus. Saw patients from 7 to 9 a.m. and then again in afternoon.

Snack: apple and coffee

Did radio show for for Alan Kays show –great host. 

Dinner: ate late, but salmon burgers, broccoli, and green beans plus some wine and coffee
Snack: too many walnuts and cashews
Kitchen closed at 9:45 p.m.

Comments on the day: Survived a tough day in my mind—that is 6 hours of lecture in 5 days.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
