For the past week or so, I have been gorging on so much food with little to no exercise. I am giving myself permission to do this in the holiday season, so no guilt :) but I just noticed today when I was walking uphill, I was panting and breathing heavy, when this has never been a problem for me earlier! Please tell me this is temporary and I’ll get back my energy and lung capacity 😩

Calm down, you’ll be fine. Just don’t make the gorging a long term thing.

I can sympathize. Also have lost motivation to work out and enjoy eating, especially at the holidays. I just want to get back to a base level of fitness where running a 1-3 miles or climbing a few flights of stairs isn’t a killer. That’s kind of my only motivator—I was shook by how tired I was going on a walk (a walk, people!) From personal experience, I go in and out of shape quickly. It will come back if you work toward it incrementally. No guilt!!!!!!

Thanks, D1! This is literally how I feel! Very excited for 2021 to motivate me to begin working out!!

🐠- I am looking for some direction. My SO was furloughed earlier in the year for 3 months. Upon resuming the job in July, HR had confirmed that the 2020 PTO accruals not be prorated for the furloughed period. However, today they reached out to inform that 2020 PTO would be prorated and hence reduced. How to handle the situation? Any recourse?

PSA: if you’re going out on vacation, do it properly. Help me help you. I don’t want to bother you while you are out. But you told me you were doing all this stuff and since you are a midlevel and generally good at your job, I believed it was getting done. You should have either finished all of it (talking about stuff you said you were handling a month ago) and/or sent me a clear email saying “I didn’t have time to handle XYZ if you could take over”. I can’t micromanage everything. 🙏🏽
