Welcome to Grammy Getting Strong!

Hi – Welcome to my blog, Grammy Getting Strong. 

I am Grammy (Pam).  My goal for 2015 is to get physically strong; maybe not Ironwoman strong, but I want to recapture a bit of the feeling I had as a kid, when I could swing by my knees on the monkey bars and climb up high in a tree.  However, some form of this goal has been my New Year’s resolution for at least the past 10 years – how can I make this year different?  I’m hoping this blog will help keep me accountable!

Starting Out:  The Good News:
·      I have a wonderful family!  Sweet husband Stan, and kids grown up and enjoying families of their own
·      I’m pretty healthy.  No cancer, since breast cancer treatment in 2010.  No major illness or disability.
·      I’m retired .  I have plenty of time to work on this.  (And that means No Excuses!)

The Bad News:
·      I feel like I’m getting weaker – out of breath on the stairs, can't run, afraid to sign up for a horseback riding vacation
·      I know I’m lugging around 20 or 30 extra pounds I don’t need
·      I have several annoying non-illnesses:  hip pain, itchy skin rash, can't sleep, thinning hair.  

I can be better!!

So I hope you’ll check up on me from time to time throughout the next year.  No guarantee to post every day, but I’ll keep you informed about my journey to strength.  Your comments and suggestions are very welcome as we go along!
