Nope, it's not sprained. Doesn't even hurt. It just gave out...twice! I do have a nice scrape on my right knee and a knot with a bruise on my right wrist. I don't want to file a report at work about it so I'm waiting until tomorrow to see how everything feels. My ego is more bruised than anything! I just hate the thought of wearing skirts or shorts with a banged up knee!

April, glad your ankle is not sprained. Sorry about your scrape and bruise, though.

Judi, picking 5 lbs. of beans is a lot of work. I've never made yogurt but I hear it's easy. Your jicama hash browns sound yummy. I think people make hash browns with zucchini, too. I never could eat potatoes for breakfast--just not appealing to me, but this morning for breakfast I ate cold leftover fish with Old Bay seasoning and chili powder. I can't imagine those being appealing to anyone besides me, though.

Nobe, your report yesterday was great.

I'm headed for the thrift store. Somehow a screw (maybe one of DH's that was loose. ) got into the washer and tore holes in three of my "around the house and gym" T-shirts. I don't want to invest in brand new ones since I'm trying to lose weight. Hope to catch you all later tonight.

Haha! Now, I said postponing... not cancelling!! We are going to have lunch with daughter, new roommate and new roommate's parents and then, after we get her unloaded and situated, we may have dinner on the island. Just kind of playing it by ear.

It's not unusual for us to postpone things because of scheduling issues. My husband and I postponed our 20th anniversary for a year because of a family emergency! lol

I'm doing well today but no exercise again. It's so freakin' hot here--again over 100 with the heat index--that I can't stand the thought of breaking into a sweat even from just exercising in my air conditioned living room. Yeah, I know it's an excuse, but I just can't bring myself to do it when the weather is hot and humid. Went out to the store and felt half sick just from walking to and from the car a couple hundred feet.
