# "Voices of Disney" January 2019 Exercise Thread

#### PollyannaMom

##### I was a click-clack champ!!
Happy New Year, and I'm so glad you've found the January 2019 Exercise Thread!! Our theme this month is "Voices of Disney". - As we post our exercise minutes, we'll learn about some of the great folks who bring our favorite Disney characters to life.

If you’re returning, we’re excited to have you back, and 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 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 January 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. This month's colors are:

10% - Whisper Blue
25% - Quiet Orange
50% - Proper Purple
75% - Projecting Pink
90% - Really Loud Red
100% - Echo Green

We’re officially starting this challenge on January 1st, but if you don’t find the 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.

Joining in for the first time in a LONG LONG time.

Princess 5k in 52 days (and CC 5k two days before that!) - not my first 5k, but I've had spinal surgery since the last one (in June 2017) and it took about a year before I felt really great enough to run regularly... then of course, I hurt a tendon in my foot. BUT all of that seems to be over and I'm somewhere around week 3-4 of the C25K or whatever interval training (I've done it enough times now that I just pick a goal, currently 2 min run - 1min walk) and up the run time every 3ish times. Knowing how crowded the Princess 5k can be, I don't anticipate running the whole thing any way from a middle corral.

Long story short, let's say 620 - because I'm more of a 30-45 min every other day person!

I'll go for 1200 again, even though December wasn't the greatest for me. But we're going to be traveling, so I should have plenty of walking time. We're going to be on the Harmony of the Seas, a ship so big that it only takes 2.4 laps around to make a mile!

Thanks for hosting, @PollyannaMom ! Sounds like you have a fun month planned.

I'm in for 1860.

I'm going to be at Disney this month, and unlike last time, I'm going to count my minutes. So I'll raise my normal goal up to 1000.

Training for the Star Wars and Princess Half this year. This is my first time doing this. Happy to be a part!!

My goal is 1000 minutes.

Glad to see a few sign-ups already, and welcome (or welcome back) to the "new" folks!

I have no minutes to report for myself today, as DH and I had a relaxing day at the movies. (We saw Mary Poppins Returns and then Aquaman - both great!)

...and one of those leads into our first voice of Disney - Angela Lansbury, who happened to play the balloon lady in the new Poppins movie. She's on the list for this thread, however, for voicing Mrs. Potts in the 1991 animated version of Beauty & the Beast. Here she is singing her signature song from the film:

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
PollyannaMom - thanks of hosting! Your trip pictures were beautiful!
I'll set a goal of 700 minutes this month. Sorry I kind of disappeared last month - family does have a way of upsetting the apple cart. Hoping to do better in the new year!

We loved Mary Poppins Returns but have not yet seen Aquaman. We need to remedy that soon. It made me happy to see Angela Lansbury as the balloon lady. : )

Don’t be too jealous - it was mostly through train stations !! We didn’t have time to see any holiday decorations or the Rockefeller Center tree
