First year of consulting: I was challenged by a fellow consultant to an ad hoc food eating competition at an all you can eat sushi buffet (read: all bad ideas). I weigh 160, and lost despite putting down 52 pieces of sushi roll. Didn't poop for 2 days; bed ridden . Had to get wife to buy ducolax from cvs to help the process along. Needless to say, I think I had full-on pregnancy contractions giving birth to that rice-bomb. Worst pain of my life. What I'm trying to say is: suck it up.

Am I doing something wrong here? Or my wife is just insecure?

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
