Default My husband's challenge

My husband left on a month long business trip on Saturday. He dared me to go to the gym every day, even if I only work out for 10min. If I do he's going to buy me a new computer. I started a blog about it and would love followers for support!

I edited out the link due to the fact that we don't allow users with less than 20 posts to post links. Also, in general, if you want to view blogs of our users, I'd encourage people to visit our 'Share your blog' forum.

No he doesn't! I've been going for 30min a day. Except when my kids are really bratty, I only made it 16min that time.
