Many think that being fit means to have a skinny body, flawless face, and going on big diets. But it’s not supposed to be like that. Being fit means having a lifestyle where you don’t have to starve for multiple days, and having the right kind of strength and health in your life. It’s a journey that never seems to stop, because your always growing. Lots of people do a variety of things to be fit.


Things like cooking a meal with the right kind of nutrients meant to help you live a longer life, or exercising with weights, or even with friends can create the right kind of healthy path to a good lifestyle. So many people have their own definition for what fit means, and they’ve committed to it. One of those people go by the name of Kirsten Peterson, who is a student at Kuna High.

Motivation doesn’t last but discipline will if you really work on it. It’s sometimes hard, there days where I just don’t want to workout but I know that’s when I need it the most. I know I will regret it later if I don’t. Working out had changed my life and I wouldn’t go back to any other way. ”.
