My bosses guilt everyone in our department for not being there 24/7, even though none of us are doing good work. 80+ hour weeks are the norm and everyone is depressed. Quit-worthy, or standard?

Any tips on how you all stay motivated?

I’ve been really consistent for about 7 weeks now, exercising and eating better. I’ve lost about 17lbs, but have another 70lbs to go and was feeling pretty demotivated this morning. I did make it to the gym and told myself I just needed to do a light 30 mins of cardio, which turned into 50 mins once I was actually there. But feel like I’m losing some of the motivation / push I had the first 6 weeks.
