Haaaalp! Lost all my workout motivation. Currently sitting on my mat staring at my weights with disgust. It’s been 3 weeks. We hate each other. But my body is like yeah you can’t afford that get back together.

My friend. Come, deadlift until you can’t feel your hands.

You're right about the not feeling your hands part. I thought my fingers were gone the other day 😬 the tingling went away but oof

Join class based workouts like Orangetheory, F45, Soulcycle, CrossFit. I threw money at my laziness and inconsistency problem and here I am 1.5 years later with 28 lbs down and in the best shape of my life. I did orange theory 6 days a week!


Started doing CrossFit and actually enjoying it. Train like an athlete!


Just enjoy your life and stop working out


That's my jam right there

Habe you tried some angry music? I usually put on some metal and the weights start to practically lift themselves


YAS do this!! Breaking Benjamin, disturbed, slipknot, mushroomhead are a few oldies but goodies


Pre workout.


Why not sit on a Peloton instead? Or get a Cubii so you can pedal under your desk while you work.


Try different things, go on a run, play beatsaber, do an apple fitness video or fiton , do a YouTube video (fitness blender, Sydney Cummings or a dance video kukuwa fit or and8 fitness), take a class in person, switch it up with TRX or ropes. I do different things which helps not get bored.


I also hype myself up the night before

Switch up your workout routine


I think Google found the cure posting their stats in the next post with others piling on. K… so I’ll shut up and get on with it 🤣🤣🤣🤣 thanks to all who provided suggestions I will now go lift bears for 2h with angry music while pedaling and staring at a poster size screenshot of my and google’s posts


When that happens to me it’s usually time for me to change my workout routine


Do a growithjo video off youtube.


So just change your diet then. If you simply want to lose fat you just need to be in a Caloric deficit. You don’t actually need to train. Now, if you want to retain any muscle then yeah, you’ll want to train but it’s not a hard line necessity.

529 Plan VERSUS Prepaid

We live in Florida and currently have a Freshman in High School and a 16 month old. We hear from our friends and family with college bound children "I wish we would have done Florida PrePaid." After obviously ignoring this for years, we are finally trying to do it before "it's too late" for both children.

Does anyone have recommendations on which plan to go with for each child? I once did the pros and cons on a whiteboard and it seemed like 529 was better.

It's confusing how we call everyone from product managers to project managers, portfolio managers, program managers, etc. PMs. We should refer to each other as PdM, PjM, PfM, and PgM, and so on, to take out the ambiguity.

Just some holiday nonsense. . What should I order? 🤨

Really want some chicken soup from a can. 😭


I don’t consider myself tech savvy at all so I’m feeling “left behind” for career advancement without knowing things like SQL/Tableau or being an expert in modeling. And I’m not even old. Unsure how to proceed in my career with just a BA in Finance. Sigh.


Does anyone else feel weird when someone says “Aww girl I’m sorry” when you’re sharing your thoughts on something bad that happened? I think there’s a part of me that feels like it’s pity sympathy and I don’t want to be pitied. Feels belittling. Like why are you sorry? And how is you feeling sorry for me going to help me?

I really ruined things with the most beautiful girl that’s ever liked me before. I still very much like her but she doesn’t anymore. She said I was asking too much of her during the talking stage (after 1 month, I wanted to talk to her more besides only our weekends - she never texted/called).
Do I try again and give her more space or do I move on? I think she might open up more but just takes time which I didn’t give her
