Candace Cameron Bure kicked off her career at age 10, starring in the popular series Full House. Since the show wrapped in '95, the actress got married, had three kids and wrote two books. She's been paired with two-time mirror ball-winning champ Mark Ballas for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.

I'm hurting a lot today. I still have energy, but I'm just incredibly sore and beat up. It is what I expected, but the contemporary dance, which is what we're starting with, has proven to physically be beyond what I had expected.

We're literally rolling on the floor for some of this dance. I've done races and mud runs and I've crawled up hills under barbed wire, and I've never had bruises bigger than the bruises I have now from doing this dance.

Two emotions came to mind for Christina Milian following her surprising elimination on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars.

But I guess based on votes from last week, you know, [we] just didn't make the cut … Even the audience was like, 'huh?' It was quite a reaction … I wasn't expecting [to be eliminated], but it's okay."

Fighting back tears, Milian, 32, who scored the first 10 of the season with partner Mark Ballas, reflected fondly on her experience on the ABC show.
