Enter My 400th Post GIVEAWAY!

Yes, this is technically my 401st post.  But I’m still celebrating my 400th, which you can read here, and you can’t stop me!

It’s been forever since I’ve done a giveaway, and an occasion like reaching my 400th post is too good to let pass without doing something to acknowledge and thank all my lovely, supportive, insightful, and terrific readers.

Here’s what I’m giving away:

An iTunes gift card worth $20!  Winner takes all.  You can spend it on music for your workouts, healthy living apps for your iPhone or iPad, or buy an the entire 4th season of Jersey Shore (and still have a penny left over) – do whatever you want with it!

Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m honored that so many people have been stopping by and (hopefully) enjoying Keep It Up, David lately, and I come to you for help in spreading the word further.  Simply put, I want your help promoting my blog.

Here’s how this’ll work:

Go tell someone about Keep It Up, David.  How you do it doesn’t matter.  Pick up the phone, send an email, text, or tweet, post a link on your Facebook or Google+ wall, have a singing telegram delivered, approach a total stranger in the sidewalk… you know how to reach the people in your life better than I do!

What you tell them is also none of my business.  I hope you’ll share your honest opinion, even if that means directing people here because you think it’s the worst blog ever.  Simple things to do might include providing a link to www.keepitupdavid.com, or recommending my pages on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.  You might point out that a simple way to see what I’m all about is by visiting my The Story So Far… and My Favorite Posts pages.  Again, it’s up to you.

Once you somehow spread the word, come back to THIS POST (entries submitted any other way, like via Twitter or Facebook, won’t be in the running) and leave a comment, telling me about it.  You can be as brief as you’d like.  I don’t need links or proof.  I believe in your honesty, so you’re on the honor system.  You’re honest and honorable, right?

If you choose to go nuts and use multiple forms of communication to tell everyone you know, than that’s wonderful, but I’m gonna limit entries per person to THREE.

Deadline for entries is Friday, October 28th at 12:01am, Pacific Standard Time.  On Friday, I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner and announce it on the blog.  The winner will have 48 hours to email me with their mailing address at keepitupdavid@gmail.com to claim their prize.  If they don’t email in time, I’ll draw another winner, and reset the clock at 48 hour, and so on.

Questions?  Comments?  GOOD LUCK!

Oh – I should mention that I’m not in cahoots with iTunes.  I purchased the gift card myself.

Before I sign off, I just want to mention how happy I am that it’s Friday!  I determined earlier this week that Friday would be a rest day, and tonight I had a great workout, for the sixth day in a row.  I did 5 minutes of warm-up on the treadmill, then 40 minutes with weights (and I threw in my 18 burpees, too), and then 12 minutes of brisk and steep inclined walking on the treadmill.  I am exhausted.

Keep it up, David!

Keep it up, David!

    I always tell people about you David! I think that you are an inspiration to us all!! You have come so far, and you show that your human, that you “fall off the wagon” like the rest of us, but you climb back on. It shows me that I can do this too!

  27. Mary Larson says:

    I told my friend about your blog, and she has been trying to get in shape for a while, but lacked motivation. Reading your blog has given her hope, and she is starting s new workout program today, and I really think she’ll stick with it because of you! You are also a huge inspiration to me!

  28. Jen Bell says:

    I shared your website with my FIT class on Thursday night!

    It was a crazy emotional night. The entire class was motivating one person to keep going by holding our count to hers (we had already “finished” our own drill). She wanted to give up but the emotional support of the class kept her going. I shared your website as you are an inspiration to keep going!

  29. I have liked your FB page and I recommended your blog to my Mom. She is now a huge fan.

    I often forward the daily post to a friend who I think it might resonate with!

  30. Emily G says:

    Hi David!! I love your blog! I texted my sister and three other friends (all of whom are in the weight loss process). You are so motivating and positive. I love all of your honesty. My pleasure sharing your pages!

  31. gkb1981 says:

    Hi David,

    I tell people all about your blog all the time. On Facebook, and when holding them hostage and telling them the exciting things that happen! I’ve been following your story for a few months now – and in that time, I have lost 50 pounds of my own (since July 1). Your stories and anecdotes inspire me, among all the others that have been inspired! Keep it up David!

  32. Bella says:
