Country singer Jana Kramer is currently competing on Dancing with the Stars, fand she's blogging about season 23 exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Kramer and her partner Gleb Savchenko, both 32, on Twitter!
Looking back on last week's dance, I feel like it went the best that it could have, especially with the amount of pain that I was in with my ribs. The pain was constant throughout the dance, so it was definitely hard, but I was proud that I went out there and I gave it my all!
Viewers wondered why I didn't tell Tom Bergeron about my pain when he asked. Although I was in pain, I told myself, 'No, I won't tell him' because I didn't want to be the person who says, 'oh I'm hurt' just because. You've got to fight through it – fight through your pain!

It's week three!
Looking back on Monday's dance, I really think that Ryan did an amazing job considering all of the drama that's been happening. Being in the bottom two will hopefully have people vote for us more. I've been in jeopardy a lot and I think that it kind of helps. It makes people realize they need to start voting! I think Ryan was very affected by it. He was shaking and said to me, "My legs are shaking. I don't know what's going to happen." All day I felt his energy because I knew that he thought that he was going to be the one going home, so I think he's thankful and grateful for everyone who voted. He really isn't ready to go home yet – he's put in a lot of time and heart into the show, and he really deserves people giving him a chance.

Prior to his days as a pro dancer on DWTS, Gleb Savchenko spent his time donning boxer briefs underwear in front of waterfalls as a model.
"Ladies and gentlemen, Gleb as an underwear model," host Erin Andrews stated before a clip played showcasing the dancer posing in the water with a spinning Mirror Ball covering a certain private area.

Members of Dancing with the Stars showed their support for Ryan Lochte on Monday evening by wearing heart-adorned T-shirts with the Olympian's name.
A week after two male protesters – who both wore white Lochte T-shirts with a red circle and line through his name – stormed the stage after the Olympian's season 23 premiere dance with pro partner Cheryl Burke, fellow contestants and pro dancers expressed their love for Lochte with their own customized T-shirts.
Before Lochte and Burke, both 32, performed their quickstep on week two, the duo was joined by fellow contestants Terra Jolé , Rick Perry and Jana Kramer and numerous pro dancers who each sported white T-shirts with Lochte's name surrounded by the outline of a heart.
