This week marked the 30th week in a row I’ve been to a gym at least once that week.
I’ve been checking in on Foursquare and several weeks ago, it started making a count of the number of times I’d been there. So I started getting obsessed with making sure I check into a gym every time I’m at one. Just so it knows. So I can keep the streak going. So I somehow feel better about myself- though I have no idea why that makes me feel better about myself (but it totally does).
This week, when I checked in and got my “Congrats! You set a new record! 30 check-in’s at a gym!” there was a little bar that filled up. I don’t know what it means, but it made me feel more accomplished.
Truth be told, that’s pretty much the only place I remember to check in on Foursquare. Except every once in a while, I remember to check into one of the comedy places I frequent (Groundlings, UCB, Second City, etc). But mostly, it’s the gym.
I can’t wait to see the pointless icon it shows me when I’ve checked in 52 weeks in a row (a whole year!) because I have a feeling that icon will make my day. And I’ll have no idea why.
