I got it from Play.com for £14.99, which includes a resistance band (not a great one but ok to start with) and a leg holster for the nunchuk. I could hardly walk after doing one of the 30 minute routines!

"a leg holster for the nunchuk"

Sounds like a Chinese torture process!!

I was thinking more along the lines of a gun holster - I wonder if she's quick on the draw?[:D]

Personal Trainer for the Wii, I might write that down and put it on my Chrismtas list as an idea. Not that I've had my wii out in ages. x

I would love to be able to make my own wine! Been looking into it and just get confused![:I]

My current hobbies are Facebook (ahem),
Cooking- im trying to develop thrifty, yet healthy meals at the moment. Loving Ellie Kreiger on The Food Network.
Music...Love Kasabian, Dandy Warhols, Silversun Pickups.
Singing... although I would need Simon Cowell to tell me if I should stop hehehe[:D]

Friend of mine just got into crochet, not something I considered but ive seen how shes done so far and im impressed![:)]
Trying to be thrifty!

It's pretty easy really, just need to save a few quid for the kit really, but it soon pays for itself in savings!!

Loads of sites you can buy from, my fave is:

http://www.brew-it-yourself.co.uk

If you need specific advice on what to buy (I put my own kit together rather than buy a kit) then feel free to message me about it.

I like to crochet and it is really easy. The basics only involves counting up to three and back!! I've made loads of stuff - een crochted a poncho and beret for a fancy dress party once!!!

I also enjoy cross stitch and have used it to make cards for nearest and dearest for next to nothing during IVA but being hand made people always appreciate the amount of time and effort so much more than the amount of money spent!!

I've just seen this! It is a bit like a gun holster, and I'm sure Dave will be happy to tell you about my first attempts to use it!

You have the nunchuk strapped to your leg and hold the remote so that the game can monitor upper and lower body movement and it really does work - if you get it wrong the exercise doesn't register and you have to try again until you get it right.

I think it was worth the money and I want to use that as well as going to the gym.

Perhaps we should ask her to bring it along for a demo Mel![:D]

I tried to crochet once and just couldn't get my head round it!

I might have to try and persuade hubby to do the wine again, on the other hand you can pick up a decent bottle of sloshable plonk from the supermarket these days quite cheaply and without the hassle!

Luke, I have to admit that you're right - I went to the gym last night and I actually enjoyed it, and I felt good afterwards! I've got a new programme which is much shorter than the last one, (45 minutes instead of 85!) so there's more chance of me sticking at it.

Yeah shorter sessions are better for you. I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

There are two of us that go, daughter and I as I know I wouldn't continue alone and our regine lasts an hour and a quarter with the two of us. In another 4 weeks we get an updated one to follow so looking forward to that as I'm soon bored. Keep it up Skippy we can do it! x
