Anyone tried or have a Tonal? Thoughts? How are the class? Do you feel fitter after using it? How long are workouts? How often are you using it? Is it addictive and fun like peloton? We have a peloton, which we love, but aren't disciplined enough use it consistently. Need to get back into the fitness game now that the pandemic is over. Like the gym / classes, but the time saving aspect of at home workouts is great and better for us right now with baby. Might get this as gift for hubby.
Hi Baby Lawyer here, I recently got a job in-house and feel like I know nothing and was wondering if anyone had any books/resources/ advice on how to get more knowledge. I don’t want to do a bad job, and they were specifically looking for someone with little experience so they can train them but feel like I don’t know enough to be helpful.
Hourglass/pear-shaped ladies - what did you wear while pregnant (besides whatever fit/partner’s tshirts)? I am still early in pregnancy but know I won’t be teeny tiny with a cute little bump. What types of clothes did you find were most flattering? I’m not planning on buying a whole new wardrobe but would like a few outfits that make me feel great. Thanks!

I think I’m falling for my mother in law. The feelings aren’t necessarily sexual in nature. They seem to be much deeper and emotional feelings—which I get would concern my wife more so than sexual feelings. It doesn’t help that everyone thinks my MIL finds me to be her “favorite” in addition to some other complicating nuances. Obviously, I won’t act on these feelings, but as the years go by, the closer we’re going to get since she’s around a lot and we talk quite often when we’re alone.

How do you teach a 4 yo when they start to lie? Today, my kid quickly put his lunch back into his box when his teachers turned around and lied to his teachers that he finished his food. They were even praising him on how quickly he finished his lunch today. And told us also that he finished all his food as well.

Getting close to retirement (~2 years) and am wary of a double dip recession in the next 6-12 months. I have enough to retire now, and want to move my 401k into less risky funds that will have a lower downside potential - what should I consider? My top choice is FXNAX (Fidelity US Bond Index), or maybe a money market fund - but I'm not too saavy with this stuff. Any help would be appreciated!

Desi folks (male specifically) - how have you dealt with marital issues? It’s unfortunate but men are not known to show emotions. Me and my wife have had so many issues.

Do partners have a set number of PTO days?
I’m a S3 making 89k in a MCOL and I’m a CPA. Basically guaranteed a manager promo in a few months, and have a ~30k promo bonus I’d receive at the same time. If I were considering jumping to another big 4/mid size, what % or $$ increase would seem reasonable/realistic ? Kinda unhappy with my current salary, so I’m trying to gain some perspective since I haven’t started looking yet and not sure if it would even be worth it.
I’m a tech guy so not as knowledgeable about investments, etc. My advisor is trying to convince me to start a term-life insurance policy, to be used for retirement. I’m 26. Is this a good idea?

Wondering about app status: I applied to a position at Deloitte in the marketing dept in early November of this year. My app status says it’s in review. Is it normal for it to take this long or is my app going to gather dust in the system?

Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.
