So I'm 3 pounds short of my short-term goal with the 28-day bootcamp from Sparkpeople.com. But that's ok. I got myself moving and ended up losing a few, didn't I?

And yes, 10 minutes doesn't seem like all that much exercise. Especially when driving by a gym and seeing elliptical monsters who've probably been at it for over an hour.
