In my Prevention's Total-Body Shape Up magazine, April's focus is to Spring-Clean Your Gear. I don't have many workout clothes to start with. Right now I just have a pair each of yoga pants and shorts and a bunch of random T-shirts, so I've been anxiously awaiting April to go shopping :).
Prevention says, "Get motivated by investing in spiffy new exercise gear...Warm colors, such as red, yellow, and orange, are more energizing than their cool counterparts...Those warm colors are attention grabbing--which activates your brain's circuitry." I didn't go for orange, but this florescent pink is pretty sweet!
They have a great article on effective gear to use or wear. Did you know you should replace your tennis shoes every 300 to 500 miles? I think my last pair were at least nine years old. Yikes! Someday I'd like to get a good watch with a heart-rate monitor, but I've got to save up a bit first :).
Walking Program Update: I finished my Walking Program!!! In January, February, and March I walked over fifty miles and logged just over 25 hours :). I feel I'm getting stronger, better endurance, and more lung capacity. The next step in meeting my six month goal of a 5K is to use the remaining personal trainer appointments I have with Axiom to improve my mobility and balance.
