Thanks to all for the encouragement!
I just remembered that I finished my pact YESTERDAY with Annabelle! Thanks for getting us through!
This is sort of like down dog and bending your knees! I can do that! The blood does rush to your head a bit if you do it too long!!!
Looking for a new pact partner....any takers???

Thank you Jan for the encouragement and thank you as well, Debra! I, too, enjoy your posts and connection. I look forward to checking in and seeing what you are up to! = )
Now...the challenge...Jan-it certainly did get the blood flowing and it was fun. I had my middle son Ethan's help today. It is their last day of Spring Break today. He asked what I was doing and then asked if there was a goat. I told him I would look when I got to the top. I was already laughing but he decided it would amuse him to tickle me everytime I tried to take a 'step'. I had extra challenges in my challenge today. And I am still laughing!
Day 3 was at the top, Jacki! Along with the goat! Smiles!

Someone mentioned yesterday that the warm up marches get you going as much as the challenge exercises do -- I agree! Today I tried marching on the treadmill, which was kind of fun! And the mountain climbing was fun too! Did anyone else find their feet creeping up between steps? I had to readjust quite a few times, and I did more than one set, just to make sure I was doing it correctly. I'm aiming to get 10 minutes of exercise a couple of times a day (at least), and this is a good way to get started.
Now off for a nap before I prepare to teach Junior Achievement lessons to the fourth graders this morning! Have a great evening, and an even better tomorrow!

Hello DC friends! Thank you all for your well wishes! They worked!! I am feeling much better… just a 24-hour bug. Good thing that’s over and done with! I have a fasting day tomorrow in preparation for my surgeries on Wednesday – do you think I should even bother eating today??? What’s the point?
Today we are climbing mountains and I was able to do this one without a problem! We all must climb mountains to reach our goals and dreams as well. The mountain I am climbing right now is my upcoming surgeries and praying for a good outcome. I am hoping that your mountain climbing brings you to your dream!! Enjoy this song…
What an abundance of well wishes, love and encouragement I have received!! I can’t even begin to put into words the feelings I have from all of this outpouring…. I feel so blessed!
Sprinkles of blessings!
