    Welcome to the October 2018 Exercise Thread! This month we're going to attend a virtual Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) while keeping up with our active minutes for the month. I've never attended this party and think it would be loads of fun to go with my exercise buddies, so grab your ticket and meet me outside the entrance!

    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 October has 31 days, here are some common conversions:
    15 minutes/day = 465
    20 minutes/day = 620
    30 minutes/day = 930
    45 minutes/day = 1395
    1 hour/day = 1860

    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% - Big Entrance Blue
    25% - On to the Treats Orange
    50% - Boo to You Parade Purple
    75% - Character Meet-n-Greet Pink
    90% - Ride the Rides Red
    100% - Happy Hallowishes Green!


    We’re officially starting this challenge on October 1st, 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.

    I'm in! A newbie here but want another place I can be accountable for what I'm doing. My stepdaughter and I started eating healthier today and I'm adding exercise into my plan. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself or I know I won't keep up. So this month I will plan for 930.

    I have a feeling it's going to be a busy month, so I'm going with the 465 option this time.

    :thanks: Twilight Sparkle for hosting, and :welcome: to the newest team members!


    15 minutes today

    To kick off this month, we have our meeting spot:

    Now let's grab our party guides:

    and show off our costumes or holiday themed park wear (via words or photo, your choice)! Since I have similar wild and crazy hair and she's one of my favorite princesses, I think I'll go as Merida (with a modified outfit that adheres to park rules):

    What will you all be wearing?

    It’s great to see everyone back on board! And welcome to our newcomers! Twilight Sparkle, thanks for hosting with such a fun theme!
    I’ll stay with my 900 minutes for this month - did 75 yesterday, and 45 so far today. Probably more to come tonight at DS! So, 120/900.
    Just left MK - so many people waiting for MNNSHP - saw some great costumes.
    I’d like to come as Snow White - I mean, who wouldn’t want 7 cute guys fawning over you!!

    I’ll gig out my Headpiece of the Staff of Ra necklace and go as Marion Ravenwood from Indiana Jones. We did that in real life once with DH as Indy and it was super fun.

    I am in for 1395. It might be rough as I am at a conference this week. Far away from home. I also forgot to bring my fitbit charger so I might need to try and keep track of my minutes.

    So this week I have gotten 57 minutes yesterday and I am going to say 45 minutes for today. Fitbit says 85 minutes but I spent most of today on planes. I did go for a walk this morning before I left.
