Kathy Peterson’s “Healthier, Happier You” July Update!

As many of you koi faithful know, koi founder and designer Kathy Peterson is an active participant in koi’s year-long “Healthier, Happier You” weight-loss campaign.

Here’s Kathy’s monthly “Healthier, Happier You” update for July 2010:

Wow, we’re at the halfway mark already. I’ve been working out pretty regularly at the gym. I am showing much more muscle tone and my energy levels have increased, but I am disappointed to say that I’ve hardly lost any weight. I think a lot of it has to do with my diet.  I am a vegetarian and it is a little tricker getting the right balance between protein and carbohydrates. I decided I am going to change things up a bit since my current routine hasn’t shown any significant results. Based on my friend Janet’s recommendation, I am going to try P90X. It contains a nutritional guide as well as DVDs I can take on the road with me when I am traveling. I know sometimes your life may get a little crazy, but it is important you don’t give up. Keep working toward your fitness goals. It is never too late to make positive changes in your life.
