Steps: 10,123. Just made it and walked with wife after dinner.

Breakfast: 2 -3 cups coffee (seems regular), 1/2 grilled salmon patty, apple
Snack: banana
Lunch: Subway foot-long veggie, no cheese, no oil—an automatic choice. Wish they made a 100% whole grain roll, but did the best I could.
Snack: apple and coffee
Dinner: salmon burgers, green beans and corn at home by myself after I gave a talk for 3 hours to nurse practitioner students – that makes in 9 hrs of lecturing in 6 days. Talked 3 hours on wellness and nutrition … these nurse practitioners are key to your wellness so the 30 or 50 that attended really can leverage our wellness messages—you do get a do over and small choices you make can make a big difference to your health.

Snack: too late
Kitchen closed at 10 p.m.

Comments on the day:  Even though I worry I am not getting enough to drink without the diet sodas—I really haven’t gotten the water bottle thing down—as Dr. Oz says, I can still read a newspaper through my urine (not really tested that way) so am getting enough fluid.

You've heard of red wine and white wine but have you ever heard of blue wine? This blue version of wine is given a taste test to see how it compares to the classics.
