I was chatting with someone the other day and, long story short, a few weeks ago, a health care provider “strongly suggested” she get at least half an hour of exercise 5 days a week, and that last night, she was told she would not see any great improvement in her health until she started exercising. This person was quite upset by the news; she told me she felt like having a good old-fashioned temper tantrum over it.
I kind of stared for a moment, and then blinked as she looked at me expectantly. I wasn’t sure what to say next.
If she was looking for someone to tell her that yeah, exercise sucks and it is totally unfair that it should be so important to good health….
Seriously? You’re looking at me?
