I love working out in the middle of the day; especially since my work building has a gym in it. It boost brain power and helps me reboot and stay on point for the end of day that I'd typically experience a tired slump. But, I'm certainly not working a full 8 hours before lunch! Our company has clear guidelines on work times. Allowing a workout mid-day is not spelled out, but standards on total hours worked per period is stated. Don't see the harm if you are getting your "ish" done so to speak. 


I think you, the generic you meaning employer, need to walk that line between clearly laying out the rules for a productive, collaborative, and successful work environment and micro-managing. Clear ground rules to ensure an equatable work environment, then I'm on board. Start looking over my shoulder to monitor every minute of my day or tell me what I should or shouldn't do for my lunch...then I'd call deuces.  


I've been lucky in employers/managers and have yet to encounter the dreaded micro-manger. It was a real adjustment at my current job when I had to use a clock in/out system online. I've never had to keep track of my time in a professional setting before (whatever category I was always in the non-overtime one. Still am actually, it's just some weird co thing). Of course that's better for me since this is now my first time in a while where I've actually worked close to the fabled 40 hour work week; mine always seem to go 50+. :)

@annhandley - My question is geared towards your speaking prowess. I know confidence is key, but it seems my nerves (that lead to a bright red face) usually get the best of me when up in front of a crowd. What is your top tip or 2 :-) for controlling nerves and wowing the crowd when speaking?

The key part of Target's quote is "...the new options available for our part-time team,..". It's actually cheaper for their part-time workers to get health insurance on the exchanges. This was the entire point of the exchanges for low wage workers (at even above minimum wage at $10/hour a worker's salary is barley $10K); therefore, Target is cutting their costs and employees can still get affordable healthcare.

@ginidietrich Late to the convo...I'm sorry, but people think this photo is "sexy"?! She is in a dress that goes from her neck to her knees. *Gasp* she is showing her arms and is laying on a lounger, while skinny and a curved pose! She looks good, but certainly doesn't cross some imaginary "to sexy" line.
