PWC1, had a fairly easy Federal project was working 8-4:30. The client had an amazing gym onsite (nicer than your average golds gym) and it was free for all employees and consultants. I also loved about 8 minutes away from the client site so I used to go home and cook a quick meal or eat leftovers (healthy leftovers) at home during lunch. I also hit the weights (did zero cardio) and built up a lot of muscle over a year. The fat started coming off and I got more toned and grew stronger as well. About to start lifting again


Go team! You can do it 😄 🎉 💪🏽

For those whose parents and SO’s parents are both within driving distance, how do you spend the holidays? SO usually goes down to his parents Tues-Sunday.

However, my mom lives 20 minutes from us and I don’t think she’d wanna stay over considering she’s never met them before...more to continue in comments
