Banging your head against a wall for one hour burns 150 calories.

Alternatively, you can walk your dog for 45 minutes, which also burns 150 calories – and is much less painful.
You can also check out these other bizarre ways to burn calories.

Table Topics Tuesday
Reverse Meetings
Let me suggest the Table Topics style I have seen at “Reverse Toastmaster” meetings (or “Fun Nights”) where the Table Topics respondents first provides an answer and then the Table topics Master has to come up with the question!!! [Similarly, throughout the meeting, everything else is done in “reverse” style the Evaluators deliver the evaluations before the speech are delivered; etc., etc.]

Monday Motivation
Monday is a day of beginnings and new starts. It’s a day where the week is before you and possibilities are endless. Begin the week with momentum and you’ll look back with great satisfaction on all you achieved.

“The future depends on what you do today.” –Mahatma Gandhi

Table Topics Tuesday
Grab Bag
Bring a lunch bag to the meeting containing various objects such as a paper clip, a staple remover, a button, a bookmark, a charge card, a pocket knife, a thimble, etc. Each speaker reaches into the bag and selects an object without seeing it. They then speak for two minutes about the object. You could also ask the speaker to sell the item to the group.

Table Topics Tuesday

Add-the-Caption
Interesting pictures are selected from magazines, and the Table Topics Master removes captions or any other descriptive text. Each speaker picks one at random and discusses what is going on in the picture, e.g., a man is sitting at a desk reading, while another person is looking out the window.
