It seems that just about every year, during the first week of January, I have a similar conversation with quite a few people. It goes a little like this...

Patient: "I really want to focus on exercising more in {fill in the year}."

Me: "Why?" (Not because I think it is a bad idea, but because I want to know their reasons)

Patient: "I want to lose weight/get stronger/run a marathon/etc."

Me: "That's great! What is holding you back?"

Patient: "I just can't seem to find the time..."

Me: "How much time do you think that you will need? 

Patient: "I need 30/60/90 minutes a day, and between my work and taking care of my family  I just don't have that kind of time."
