OK, so we all fall off the healthy wagon sometimes and I feel like I’m holding on by a thread these days. It was time to regroup! I kicked off my healthy re-start with a visit to my friend Portia this morning and some tips from Stevan Krstic.
Stevan is a friend of the family and founder + owner of Koi, a hardcore but thoughtful Bay Area boot camp style workout community that truly brings results.
I enlisted Stevan because I know the guy likes to drink wine, eat cheese and to dine at all of the fabulous Bay Area restaurants as much as I do… but he is able to thread it all into a healthy lifestyle.
Stevan was kind enough to share a “go to recipe” which is healthy but… I was so relieved… easy to make and something actually enjoyable to eat!
For cecyj.com readers or first time boot campers, Koi is taking 15% (Promo Code CECYJ15) off the regular price for boot camp and Outdoor Personal Training packages. In addition, you can always try out the program for a trial week either at the beginning or end of each session.
Thank you to everyone over at Koi and a very special thanks to Stevan.
