Gradually over time I have been losing my lifting buddy. She lifted with me all the way up to 1 week before she had her baby. I waited patiently for her 8 weeks where she couldn't do anything now she just cancels on me all the time. It sucks, I finally found someone I could depend on and I lost her. I asked her today if she needed to call it quits and she said yes, she just has too much going on. I started crying at work when I heard her response. It's so hard to find a person to depend on and then POOF gone. She said she wants to remain friends but I know that wont happen. We have never been friends outside the gym in the past 3 yrs I have known her. We just come from such different places. I just really feel like there is nothing keeping me at my gym anymore. I am kinda burned out oz zumba and werq. I am not really into water aerobics anymore. I am just into running for maintenance right now. I asked Scott if he would join a cheaper gym with me and lift with me and he said he would. I could always go back to my old gym if this isn't gonna work. The tiny gym I would join with him has no contract and I could freeze my big gym membership while I find out. In one of my health books I read they said YMCA did a study about what keeps ppl at gyms. They said its the feel of community and a place they belong to where ppl know them and are friendly and they wanna come in and see familar faces. Going to that WERQ class on Monday for 90 minutes. Not a single person said hello to me, not even ppl I semi know on facebook from classes. I invited my lifting buddy as usual and she failed to come yet again. I just feel no belonging there anymore. It's sad, cuz I really enjoyed that gym for the past 3 yrs and like my lifting buddy it all poofed. So remember when u cancel on your friends trying to get u workout with them. Your not only hurting yourself, your hurting them too. Who knew leaving a gym could be so upsetting =( Time to depend on those who love me and try to motivate him as well.
