    Welcome to the September Exercise Challenge! This month we'll be looking at the Super Sidekicks of the Disney main characters. These characters aren't intended to be the center of the movie, but sometimes they're among the best parts!

    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 toward that goal as they exercise. You decide what movement counts towards your goal, which can be a set monthly number, or calculated based on a target number of minutes per day. Since September 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. This month, we have:

    Baloo Blue - 10%
    Olaf Orange - 25%
    Pascal Purple - 50%
    Piglet Pink - 75%
    Rizzo the Rat Red - 90%
    Gargoyles Green - 100%


    We’re officially starting this challenge on September 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.

    Let's kick off this "S" month with Sebastian the Crab, a sidekick to Ariel in The Little Mermaid. King Triton's court composer, Sebastian is tasking with riding herd on Ariel. He performs two of the most popular musical numbers in the movie, "Under the Sea" and "Kiss the Girl."

    Apparently, though, Sebastian's actual full name is "Horatio Felonius Ignacius Crustaceous Sebastian." Who knew?

    Here's a clip of a holiday dance party at Hollywood Studios. Skip to the end for a rare in-person (in-crustacean?) appearance by Sebastian.

    160 minutes working at the barn in ankle deep mud thanks to almost 24 hours of rain. Every part of me hurts. No worries, the horses didn't have to work in those conditions. Just me. Ouch!

    Day 2. Everyone on the team has reported minutes, and two team members have turned Baloo Blue! Congratulations to Twilight Sparkle and Shrfleen!

    Baloo, of course, is Mowgli's sloth-bear friend from The Jungle Book. In Disney's 1967 film, he's a lot more easygoing character than in Rudyard Kipling's book, by Walt Disney's insistence. Walt also insisted on casting Phil Harris to voice Baloo; as it turned out, Harris did such a great job that Baloo's character was shaped to fit Harris's own personality. Bill Murray voiced Baloo in the 2016 film.
