What happens if I stop weightlifting for a month? How much progress will I lose? I’ve been training six times a week - 3 days running and 3 days lifting. I’m getting burnt out. I have a 10K race coming up (registered and all) so I don’t want to stop running. I started weightlifting in March but really committed in May/June. My lifts (3x10 reps) are currently: squat 115, bench 70, deadlift 90. I’m 5’1 125 lb female if it helps. I don’t want to lose all my progress but I need some type of a break

First year associate trying to decide between practice groups (CapM & M&A). One CapM partner has taken a liking to me (introduces me to clients/partners in other offices, has me assist with BD), but hasn't directly given me much billable work. Most of my work to date is with the M&A group, whom I really like to. I feel the CapM partner would be disappointed if I chose M&A, but I'm hesitant to choose CapM solely for him, when I don't get many billables through him. Anyone have any guidance?

I'm a young analyst in ACN with 1+ year of experience in cloud migrations. I've received a very good job offer by another Big 4 in the same sector and service but with better career growth opportunities. I don't like to work in cloud service and also I don't like the banking sector. For this reason, I requested to be moved in another service in ACN. My manager said ok, but this probably takes several months. Next monday I have to provide a feedback to the other company. What would you do?

I moved to US 5 years ago. Intra company transfer. I am fairly successful here however sometimes feel guilty of taking away American job. Why do I feel this? I have unique skill set. I think I deserve it. But stigma of offshor-ing American jobs (conservative media talking points) makes me sad. Thoughts? P.S. I make a lot of money so cheap resource rhetorics don’t apply to me.

Anyone had experience with hefty fatigue when starting Paxil? Never had this side effect with other SSRIs, and I’ve definitely been napping during the day. Should I discuss with my manager or just try to keep it together quietly? I don’t want to come across as lazy and I’m worried about optics.
