    Welcome to the November Exercise Challenge! This month we'll be looking at Classic Disney World Snacks and how much exercise we’d need to do to burn them off. Since Thanksgiving is this month, I figured something food-related would be appropriate!

    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 November 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:

    LeFou’s Brew Blue - 10%
    Citrus Swirl Orange - 25%
    Berry Cream Puff Purple - 50%
    Popcorn Pink - 75%
    Cinnamon Roll Red - 90%

    Kitchen Sink WISH Green - 100%

    We’re officially starting this challenge on November 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.

    I am going to be heading to Disney World from 11/14-11/21 this month, so I won’t be updating this much if at all during that time. Also, I am not going to be tracking my exercise while I am gone that week, so my goal will be lower than usual.

    1000 for me.

    This topic is creative but it also seems kind of evil -- I'm not sure I really want to know calorie counts for some of the very delicious Disney treats!
    :eek: :drinking1popcorn::

    Pilates class this morning

    Put me down for 600 but I have a week at Disney in the middle so I'm sure I'll go over.

    Thanks everyone for joining in for the November Snack Attack Exercise Challenge and shout out to Twilight Sparkle and sophy1996 for being the first to report minutes. No color changes yet, but of course it's only day 2 of our month!

    We'll start out easy with the....

    Dole Whip!

    [​IMG]

    The Dole Whip is available at Aloha Isle and the Poly. Coming in at 90 calories for a regular Dole Whip, it will take approximately 55 minutes walking 2 miles an hour to work this sweet treat off!

    According to the calorie burn calculator on the bike, I did just enough to work off the Dole Whip :P

    Awesome news! sophy1996, Twilight Sparkle, and the team have reached LeFou's Brew Blue! Congrats! :cheer2:

    So. . .just how many calories are in
    LeFou's Brew?
    [​IMG]
    According to what I could find on Google, LeFou's Brew, even though it sounds like a natural, healthy drink, will set you back 250 calories!
    It would take swimming at a fast pace for about a half an hour to burn off one cup of LeFou's Brew!
