# "Disney through the Years" January Exercise Challenge

#### PollyannaMom

##### I was a click-clack champ!!
to the January 2017 Exercise Challenge!

Here’s how it works:
Each person chooses a goal in minutes, and posts progress toward that goal as they exercise. (The type of exercise you count is up to you.) You can choose a total number that means something to you, or set a daily target and multiply. (January has 31 days, so I’ve listed some common conversions.)

15 minutes/day = 465
20 minutes/day = 620
30 minutes/day = 930
45 minutes/day = 1395
1 hour/day = 1860

Since it’s a new year, our theme for this month is “Disney through the Years”. To keep you checking in, I’ll be discussing Disney releases year by year - starting way back in 1934, and going up through 1967. (My main resource is a list in the book Walt Disney Conversations, by Kathy M. Jackson.)

One of the fun things about our challenge is color changes , so you’ll get a new color when you hit certain percentages of your goal. To keep us in the spirit of our New Year’s resolutions, here are our motivating colors for the month:

10% of goal - Bouncing Blue
25% of goal - Optimistic Orange
50% of goal - Powerful Purple
75% of goal - Promising Pink
90% of goal - Resilient Red
100% of goal – Go-For-It Green

If you’re returning, we’re excited to have you back!
If you’re new, welcome to the team!!

(And if you find us later in the month, you can still join in!)

So, what was "new" at Disney in 1934?

Donald Duck

That's right, Disney released the Silly Symphony The Wise Little Hen, which included Donald for the first time, though he looked a little different then:

PollyannaMom.

I'm in for 600. We will be at WDW for over a week this month and quite frankly December wore me out. I need some rest haha

The theme sounds fun, you had me at Donald

My husband got me adjustable dumbbells for Christmas and I'm in love with them. Can't wait to do a proper weight workout with them. I've used them for a quick one at the end of a heavy cardio workout and went way lighter than I'm capable of.

I'm in again. 2000 minutes this time. We're going to WDW this month, and I know there will be tons of walking. Plus, with a goal that big, I'll have to keep up the momentum at home, too. Thanks for hosting, PollyannaMom! Sounds like a great theme. Can't wait to learn something new!!! Happy New Year, everyone!

Was so tired after work and was just going to take today off, but then I figured it'd do me good to just dance around the apartment for about 40 min or so. Ended up dancing for 73 minutes.

Good morning, all! And welcome to the new team members!

I'm adding 15 minutes, for 15/465, and the team total stands at 310/10,125 ~ 3%.

New from Disney in 1935 was The Band Concert, the first Mickey Mouse cartoon in color. Here is an edited short version from YouTube:
