Thanks for allt he replies. First of, I don't do Brazilian Jui Jitsu. I do traditional Japanese Jui Jitsu, which is somewhat different than the Brazilian bastard son version
Age is 41, so not like I am an old geezer, but not the 25 y.o. wiper snapper either. I also should correct a couple of things I said. I said I started "a little over a year ago", but in reality is more like closer to the 2 year mark. Also, when I said I was getting to black belt by the end of 2012, I meant black belt training, which in itself is another 6 months minimum.
Frankly, Karate (traditional Japanese style) is not as taxing physically, at least for me, as the Jui Jitsu is. I have been trying to be more realistic about my goals on each, but the reality is that I am very competitive at everything I do. I want to be the "badest mofo" I can be when I am in MA class and do my best to train hard, but I also do the same in cycling. I don't plan it that way or think about it, but it is who I am. I am trying to set more defined goals for each of the disciplines so I can continue to enjoy them all, but I think it will take some time. Also, I think that I have been seriously ignoring the fact that I have been fighting a bunch of "colds" over the last few weeks, which in itself have contributed to my chronic fatigue. Let's not even talk about the gained weight, which I can feel 24/7. I am addressing the later, so hopefully I'll be feeling some extra energy as I shed some pounds again.
Thanks again for all the comments and suggestions.
