Me (to client who was on vacation for the past week): Hi, how was your vacation? Did you exercise?

Client: No, didn't have enough time to add that in.

Me (thinking)...add that in? Exercise is not to be added in, it is to be a central part of your daily life...Oh, that's a shame.  Did you eat well (meaning in a healthy fashion)?

Client: Only too well, I have put on at least 5 lbs. (seeing the dismay on my face)...oh don't worry, it's not your fault, you aren't to blame.

Me (thinking)..of course I am not to blame, but I feel so bad about this.  Why isn't this person motivated enough to make healthier choices, I wonder(ed) what fun stuff did you do?

Client: OMG, did you see last night's "Orange Is The New Black?"



My Final Conclusion:  If you don't have 'enough time to exercise', stop watching TV!
