Fitness Friday: Laugh it Off!

Workout Song of the Day: "My Third House" by Kings of Leon

Did you hear the one about having a good laugh actually burns calories? Well, it's true. Not as much as I'd like, though. If I could laugh instead of doing cardio, I'd spend my days watching Judd Apatow movies and "Martin" reruns--which is kind of my idea of heaven. But sometimes we get so tense about this whole getting fit thing, that we forget that it's okay to just have fun.

The clip below has been prowling around the Internet forever, but it still makes me guffaw. Yes, guffaw. As in throwing back my head and laughing so loud that my coworkers think about committing me. It also warns me the dangers of taking things too literally, which I do on far too many occasions.

So laugh. Burn some calories--and enjoy your weekend!

LMAO- that is freakin' hilarious! And envisioning you guffawing- head thrown back and all??? Pure genius!

Ann Marie Wraight said...

Well....I laughed for APPROXIMATELY

4 minutes and 39.6 seconds Pam.

So exactly HOW MANY calories did I burn up?????

Pam and Marquita (gorgeous name) - Have a great weekend!

Oooh, I think I get to eat a nibble of chocolate now. :D

Dear Ann Marie, I'd say you're entitled to some kind of buffet meal now.

Dear Stina, you're welcome. :)

Dear Marquita, you're sitting right next to me on the couch so I'm just going to turn and talk to you. :)
