So how do I keep fit and how do I stay in shape?

The first thing, and the biggest part, is probably my diet.

I don't eat a lot of sugar, I don't eat a lot of donuts and cake and candy. I try to cut out sugars, and carbohydrates, as much as I can.

I eat as healthy as I can throughout the day and I feel that that helps me to stay healthy, stay in shape, stay feeling fit.

The other part of it, I have a daily routine where I wake up early, and I actually do an hour workout in the morning, every morning. So that might be, I might go out for a run for an hour, or a jog, or a walk, or I'll go to the gym, or just at home do some sort of workout, maybe some push ups, or some ab workouts, some crunches, or something like that.

But yeah, I do that every morning, I feel that it, gets me up, get me motivated, gets me ready for the day.

But yeah, that's how I keep fit and I stay in shape, most of it is really the diet. Just eating healthy, and staying away from candy, and donuts, and cake, and sugar, and all that.
