Between working full time and raising two very active kids I find no time for myself to spend at a gym. My friends have noticed the pounds coming on and I constantly get told that I need to make time for me. Easier said than done! I recently starting walking the track while my daughter practices soccer 3 times a week for an hour and a half but my ‘oh so fit’ friends say that this will do very little to get me back in shape but its a good start (but don’t hope for miracles kind of thing). Supportive – NO! Still I see their point – I need to do something for myself and stop making excuses. Still I thought this was a good start. So my question is will walking 3 times a week at a good speed for 90 minutes be equavalent to a work out at the gym or am I really fooling myself into believing I can lose some weight doing this?
