Well, we're about to find out.

Shauna Ahern runs

Then came the fall, the book tour, and lots of work-related travel. Don't mistake this list for complaints; Shauna's about as happy, gracious and thankful as they come. But once you add mother-ing and wife-ing to that list, there isn't lot of time left for exercise. Plus, now that it's winter, there are those cold, short, rainy Vashon Island days that give her good reason to stay inside (and bake).

And yet, per this month's

2. Dance with the Wii: Shauna and her husband Danny have gone to a place that many of us wonder about: they have exercised with the Wii. They dance and they laugh and they sweat. It's goofy, silly and effective.

3. Take a walk: There's got to be a break in the clouds some time this week. Shauna plans to haul on her muck boots and enjoy it.

So that's the plan: 20 minutes, three times this week, Shauna is going to take a break. For yoga, to walk, and to Wii. And what was Shauna's response to this assignment?

"Honestly, 3 times per week for 20 minutes feels like it’s too little." Of course it does, my little Perpetual Motion machine. Once you've tackled this and made it part of your routine, we can add more. 

Go get 'em, Shauna.
