The Downton Abbey Season 5 Workout: Courtesy of Anne-with-an-e

Anne-with-an-e and I were talking about Downton and she said, "Y'know, if we came up with a Downton Abbey workout game, we'd be in shape in no time. For example, 'Mary is mean to Edith: Five jumping jacks.'"

She kept going, and I said, "You have to write this down."

I now have a blog post for today.

So. Here's your workout. Enjoy the show, and, hey, you've never felt so invigorated!

Mary is mean to Edith: 5 jumping jacks
Thomas gives someone an evil look: 4 push-ups
Robert is a jerk: 5 sit-ups
The music reminds us to worry: 1 lap around the room
Mr. Bates is suspected of a crime: 6 crunches
Edith looks wistful: Touch toes
Miss Bunting offends someone: Jog in place
Thomas does something sad, yet also stupid: 10 deep knee bends
A Dowager Countess Zinger: Hop on one foot for 30 seconds

{Kathy} This is hilarious! I have just started watching the show and am in the middle of the second season. I think I have now found my weightless plan.

Enjoy it, Kathy. The Dowager Countess Zingers alone add up to a great workout. :)

LOL. This is the perfect workout . . . but since I like to watch each episode at least 3 times, I'll be spending all my time exercising. When will I have time to drink my tea? :)

This is so awesome! The way Robert has been acting this season will guarantee plenty of sit-ups!!

Karen Edmisten said...

LOADS of sit-ups. :)

☺ This is hilarious - and yet a completely SENSIBLE workout plan!

I know! Edith's wistfulness alone would get me in shape. :)

I am so thankful I wasn't drinking my hot tea the very moment I read this today. Laugh out loud funny! This could be marketed! ;-)

Thanks, Beth! She made me laugh, too, and I'm glad you weren't drinking your tea as you read! :)
