    :welcome:to the February 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. (February only has 28 days, so I’ve listed some common conversions.)

    15 minutes/day = 420
    20 minutes/day = 560
    30 minutes/day = 840
    45 minutes/day = 1260
    1 hour/day = 1680


    Our theme for February is Fabulous Felines -- Disney Felines, of course!

    One of the fun things about our challenge is color changes :rainbow:, so you’ll get a new color when you hit certain percentages of your goal. Here are our motivating colors for the month:

    10% of goal - Aristocats Blue
    25% of goal - Tigger Orange
    50% of goal - Figaro Purple
    75% of goal - Cheshire Cat Pink
    90% of goal - Rufus Red
    100% of goal – Lion King WISH Green


    If you’re returning, we’re excited to have you back! :jumping1:
    If you’re new, welcome to the team!! :cheer2::cheer2::cheer2:

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

    Put me down for 1000, shooting a little lower in case this flu continues to kick my butt. Right now I'm hoping to start working out in the next few days but I'm still exhausted so we'll see :)

    I love cats! Great theme!

    My goal is 1000. I've been struggling with motivation lately, so I really want to get back on track.

    26 minutes today to start

    I saw the cutest Siamese cat on the humane society's web site today, so let's talk about a Disney Siamese cat with a shelter background.

    Trainer Bill Koehler found Syn at a California animal shelter. He starred first as Tao in 1963's The Incredible Journey and then as D.C. (Darn Cat) in That Darn Cat! in 1965. That Darn Cat! also featured Hayley Mills in her last role for Disney, and apparently Syn and Hayley got along very well. Syn won a PATSY award (Picture Animal Top Star of the Year) for That Darn Cat!

    I had so much homework last night I couldn't bear to take the time to drive all the way to the gym, so I just put on an ancient Denise Austin workout video. It was a pretty good workout, and I got lots of extra toning in my abs from laughing at how corny it was! :)

    While we're looking at Disney Siamese cats, I would be remiss if I didn't mention Si and Am, the villainous Siamese pair from 1955's Lady and the Tramp. I have their song The Siamese Cat Song (also known as We are Siamese) stuck in my head! Peggy Lee sang the lyrics, and she recorded it twice, once for each cat. Unfortunately, though, the pair were drawn to reflect outdated stereotypes of Asians that were common in the United States in the 1940s and 1950s.
