    I'm planning on doing various exercise DVD's from my collection :D

    I'm quite a fan of Davina McCall's (have them all except for the pregnancy/post natal one), as they work you hard and the results are good.

    I'm aiming to do those interspersed with some more 'dancy' type ones. Just got the Coleen Nolan Discoburn one, and I always turn to Rosemary Conley Salsacise if I want a lighter exercise - say, when I haven't done anything for a while, or in between more intense workouts.

    I've had a look at the new Ministry of Sound one, but I think its one to work up to, when my joints are a bit more mobilised :D

    I've also got an exercise bike and tend to do the odd 30min stint here and there.

    I guess I just need to formalise tihngs a bit more and get into a set routine, instead of 'when I feel like it' :eek:

    I'm another girlie who prefers to exercise at home. I have a lateral thigh trainer which is fab for toning up my legs and lower tummy (that tricky bit!).

    I'm also quite a big fan of workout DVDs - my favourites are the 'Pacha Dance Workout' and 'Pump it up! The ultimate dance workout' by Ministry of Sound. The MoS one is very exhausting though. I've now got a new bellydancing DVD that I can't wait to try out, but don't actually have the energy tonight (first day back at work after the hols!).

    The plank is such a good exercise for 'pulling everything together' in the mid section. Starting off doing it on elbows and knees is still effective, to get your strength together. It's amazing how quickly you can make progress to hold in a full plank position.

    I have a Wii fit which I need to start using :D

    I also love the Tae Bo workouts.Years ago I did a 30 min Tae Bo workout 5 days a week and lost 2 dress sizes within a few weeks. They are fab. My sil used them for preparing for her police fitness test too, they are really good.

    Going to get some good walks in each day too :)

    Can't wait to try this new bellydancing DVD I got, just don't have as much time/energy as I'd like. The weekend might be easier when hubby can take over with the baby!
