Intro: First blog

Hello All!

Happy Thursday! This is my first blog on WordPress.com and I would like to welcome you to it.

The goal of this blog is to provide information to women on the importance of moving your body after the age of 40 and highlight the benefits of exercise on our overall health and well-being.

It began as a research project for a class I just completed at a local University and has extended to a Facebook group and now this blog.

Thank you for reading and I am excited to share what I’ve learned with you!
