I talked about doing a workout pledge a while back. I got (stole) the idea from 344pounds.com. I decided since I'm going to start the 100 push-ups challenge on Monday, I want to do my workout pledge this week.
So here's how it works. You have until noon on Friday to tell me how much I time I should spend exercising by doing any or all of the tasks I list below. This time I'll be on the elliptical.

A simple "good job" or "keep it up" is fine. If you wanted to offer advice or ask for some, that's great too. Every post counts, no matter how large or small.
Follow me on Facebook: 30 seconds
If you become a follower of 100 pounds in a year on facebook, you'll add 30 seconds to my workout. If you look to the right, you'll see a facebook box. Just click follow.
Follow me on Twitter: 30 seconds
Same as Facebook. I often tweet things that don't make it onto my blog or Facebook. My handle is 100_Pounds.
Subscribe to the RSS feed: 45 seconds
You'll have to let me know that you subscribed as I have no way of checking how many subscribers I have (that I know of). Just email me. Use the subject "Workout Pledge"
Link to my page: 1 minute
Link to me from Facebook, Twitter, your blog, Digg, etc. You'll have to send me a link to your link so I know that you linked to me and so I can check out your site.
Donate $10 to any organization offering relief aid for the Haiti earthquake: 2 minutes
Text "HAITI" to 90999 and a donation of $10 will be given automatically to the Red Cross to help with relief efforts, charged to your cell phone bill.
There are also a number of other ways to donate. See my link above for details.
Again, just let me know if you did this so I can add it to my time.
I'll be on twitter on my phone the whole workout. You can join me live on Friday at 4:00pm.
I'm excited. Let's do this thing.
Update: After tallying all the comments, subscriptions, follows on twitter and facebook, links, and donations to the Haiti earthquake relief, my total workout comes to 32 minutes even. I'll be getting a slightly later start than I thought. I'll leave for the gym at 4:00 and arrive about 4:10. I'll get on twitter once I get started on the elliptical.
