It’s great to have a buddy, they can motivate you and give you someone to talk with. I need to walk much more to lose the 10 pounds I gained over the holidays and have trouble getting motivated.
I have been doing walking workouts 4 to 5 days a week. It also helps me mentally as well. So important to stay moving.
