    Welcome to the November 2018 Exercise Thread! This month we're going to highlight "Nice News" -- that is, heartwarming stories, likely (but not necessarily!) with a Disney connection -- while keeping up with our active minutes for the month.

    If you’re returning, we’re excited to have you back! If you’re new, welcome to the team! Here’s how it works:

    Each person chooses a time goal, and posts minutes towards that goal as they exercise. You can post daily or just catch up when you can. You decide what movement counts towards your goal, which can be a nice round total for the month, a specific number that means something to you, or a calculation based on a target number of minutes per day.

    Since November has 30 days, here are some common conversions:
    15 minutes/day = 450
    20 minutes/day = 600
    30 minutes/day = 900
    45 minutes/day = 1350
    1 hour/day = 1800

    One of the special motivations of our Disney challenge is color changing! Page one will be updated with individual and team color changes as we make more and more progress.

    10% - Benevolent Blue
    25% - Outstanding Orange
    50% - Pleasant Purple
    75% - Positive Pink
    90% - Refreshing Red
    100% - Great Green


    We’re officially starting this challenge on November 1, but if you don’t find this thread until later in the month, you’re still welcome to join!! Just post your goal and I’ll add you to the list. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, and to check out old threads to see what’s been going on.

    Team:

    BonnieF - 75/700

    In for 1400.

    In the spirit of the thread, though a little early, check out Neil Patrick Harris's family Halloween photo, inspired by the Haunted Mansion! (link to USA Today)

    A lot of their family costumes have been inspired by Disney (the article shows some of their past costumes as well).

    Thanks for hosting, Sophie 1996! And kudos to Twilight Sparkle for a fun October!
    With the colder weather coming (even though it was 70 here today and the forecast for tomorrow is 75!!) and the holidays starting up, I’ll set a goal of 700 minutes for November.
    Gotta love NPH!!

    September was a lot of fun, but then I took October off (from the exercise thread, not exercising) and I missed it...so I am back for November.

    Let's see...November has 4 weeks plus a little this week, my goal is 4x week at the gym, which is usually 45m each time...18x gym x 45m = 810 m. Plus I want to keep walking outdoors (my trip is coming up in January and I want to keep walking to be more ready!!)...and I can substitute indoor walking if the weather is bad...5x per week sounds good, plus 2x for the rest of this week. I'll set a 30m minimum for the walks.. 22x walks x 30m = 660 m. 660 + 810 = 1470

    OK! Weirdly specific, but my goal is 1470!

    Thanks for doing this, sophy1996!

    Welcome back, everyone!

    Let's kick off the month (not counting NPH) with a nice engagement story. Back in August, Jesse and Kasey were getting their picture taken in front of the castle at Disneyland. When she pulls a ring out of her pocket, he's shocked -- because he has a ring for her too!

    Twitter has the video here.

    I'm in this month again... Great way to stay accountable, but going to be more modest and put in for 1300. Its getting colder and those walks are slowing down. Lets have a great November all!

    Hi! I'm in again and will bump up the goal a little to 1600. I need to make sure I keep moving so I can be ready for our Dec WDW trip. I love the theme you chose for this month, @sophy1996. Thanks for hosting us!

    Is anyone in the market for their own Haunted Mansion? The Pillars Estate in upstate New York, complete with ghost of former owner, is on offer for a cool $500,000 (reduced from $1 million). Since it's upstate New York, I guess it's more WDW Haunted Mansion than Disneyland Haunted Mansion?

    DH and I are headed to Disneyland tomorrow for Dapper Day this weekend, so updates may be sporadic until we're back on Monday.

    Love the new theme!!!

    I've been struggling to work exercise around family things lately, so I'm going to stick with the small 15 min/day goal of 450, but I'm looking forward to the month!

    @sophy1996, have a great weekend at Disneyland!!

    Only 10 minutes yesterday. It really needs to stop raining here. We are on day 3 or 4 now of non-stop rain.

    Sending sunshiny thoughts your way! We only had about 12 or so continuous hours of rain here and it was not fun. Today is gorgeous and full of sunshine, though, so I hope it will soon be that way for you, too.
