Getting in Shape

I can't really remember the last time I felt like I was in shape. Sure, I do a bunch of activities that provide some level of exercise, but I haven't been really pushing my fitness level in a long time. In other words, I've been mostly exercising at my fitness level which has been gradually deteriorating.

So, I'm making a point of exercising more, and trying to eat a little better. On Tuesday I went for a walk after dinner. Yesterday I ran in the morning and then went to an MMA class at FnF. The MMA class kicked my ass, but it is exactly the sort of thing I need to push my fitness level higher. This morning I did a quick little workout when I got up and hope to do some Jiujitsu later. I'm hoping that if I find plenty of different workouts, ranging in intensity, I can always be doing something.

The whole point of this is to drop a little extra weight, increase my stamina and be ready to compete in a Jiujitsu tournament in October.
