Sick and sprained my ankle, haven’t worked out in over a week. Feel like I’m gonna gain all the weight back and lose muscle. What do you all do when taking it easy with exercise?

It will be fine. You’ll lose a small amount of strength and muscle after a couple weeks of no exercise, but it’ll be easily regained. Watch your calories and focus on protein. Try for a gram per pound of body weight. This will minimize muscle loss and help with satiety. Hope you feel better soon.

Chair exercises. I broke my foot once. You sit on a chair and lift weights. Big hugs, hope you feel better soon !

Rest up. Don’t over eat. Focus on nutrition. It’s good to give your CNS a break.

Or do trigger sessions. Basically, they’re workouts with bands or body weight (if they’re not too difficult) to keep sending the anabolic signal to your muscles.

most upper body exercises can be done while seated. swim!

I just need to vent. I am so sick of dealing with one of my coworkers. He has been a thorn in my side since I started working at my new job. He thinks he is the boss, despite the CEO telling him he's not the boss. He wastes 90% of his time micro-managing me instead of doing his own job. He intentionally alters my work after it was finalized, without telling anyone. He lies to everybody and nobody here likes him. The CEO won't get rid of him, nobody knows why. I love my job, but can't stand him.

It was exhausting to be “on” in person the entire time. I couldn’t bring myself to go back this week. I didn’t realize wfh allows me to enjoy my job and gives me the time to balance life and friends outside of my job.
