Okay, so this may seem like a “dumb” question to ask but I am pissed and just need to vent. My twin sister and I had made a pact to workout 6 days aweek together. I basically changed my schedule around to make sure the times work with her. Grant it, I canceled twice last week because I had finals and started a new job (but I canceled in the morning, way before we were suppose to work out) However today, I got off work early and was excited to workout about 3:30pm but then my sis had to postpone the time becasue they her and my other sister were looking for bridesmaid shoes together. I was happy to hear that they were doing something for my wedding but frustrated because they kept asking which shoes and my response is that I do not care, they only have to be silver.Then it turned in to, what type of silver, light… dark.. shinny? I kept saying I dont care! The reason I picked silver shoes for the bridesmaid was to save money for them, thinking they could shop around for their own shoes or borrow some or something. I honestly dont care for them to be specific. Well, needless to say… my twin sis canceled on me around 5:00pm because she is looking for the shoes. Ugh, I know I shouldnt be mad but I am just pissed becasue she canceled on me now and I could have worked out earlier! Maybe working out and family don’t mix? The more I write this, the more I realize I am crazy. Oh well. Haha I guess my bridezilla only comes out when I wanna get in shape? Hmm…

u r not a bridezilla, ur prolly just frustrated with all of the planning stress! vent here and just cool off, u can always work out alone today and i’m sure ur sister will join u tom!
as far as the shoes, don’t forget that they were doing things for your wedding and probably care what your opinion is! its bcuz they love you not bcuz they want to annoy you! 🙂

LOL your cute!
Just workout yourself and you will feel better!
The best thing to do when you have a workout partner is to pick a time and stick with it even if they can’t make it!

I agree with Future Mrs Martin. I have two friends that I have set up as workout buddies… and both of them would cancel on me for various reasons, and I would do the same thing… sitting at home waiting to go workout. I have since realized that working out and my reasons for working out, are about me! So, I set a time and I go. I let them know when I will be at the gym, and if they choose to join me, fantastic… if not, that’s okay too;.. I don’t lose my motivation that way and still get my workouts in!

Just go workout by yourself at the scheduled time. If she joins you great, if not well at least you’re the one getting more and more in shape.

Yeah this is one reason I’ve never had a work out buddy – I like to be able to go at a time that suits me, and I like to switch off while I’m doing it, I don’t want to have to make conversation with someone. My sister and I meet up at the gym twice a week to do classes together which is fun, but if one of us can’t go it’s not a big deal at all, the other one would always go. Maybe you need to change your arrangement with your sister – 6 commitments a week is a lot, so you could work out together 2 or 3 times and the rest of the days do your own thing, maybe together if it works out but if not just go by yourself. Good luck!
