Trying to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu but my fat ass is having difficulty doing it

Even thin is difficult. I did martial arts when I was younger and it was still quite demanding.

The fascists are, so...

I should, but I don't have the time/ energy combo. I prefer sports but I have a limp, so another no to me.

I don't have a bench and I don't like anything about the gym.

I've mostly been doing bodyweight strength training for about a year.

I used to. My college had a good gym. I used to lift weights, do cardio machines, go to fitness classes, climb the rock wall, etc. I also did marching band all through high school and college, and that kept me in decent shape. I've tried to get back into working out on and off since then, but I can't seem to stick with anything. I'd like to start lifting again, but I don't really have much confidence in my form, and I haven't seen results in the past commensurate to the amount of effort I was putting in.

I did judo for about 6 months in college, too. I was pretty bad at it. I was always really stiff when I sparred/did drills. It's kinda just how I am, unfortunately.

I do go hiking/trail running fairly often--I have amazing trails 10-15 minutes from my house.

I'll probably start taking yoga classes again once money isn't so tight. I really felt the mental and physical benefits from it, and I do a little at home every now and again, but I really need the feedback from an instructor sometimes because I have such shit body awareness.

Finally, this year I'm actually consistent about it. I started running, training to run a 12K (it helps when I have something tangible to work towards), so I've starting doing sprints, which are a great full body workout, and longer distance running. I'm also trying to be able to do 20 consecutive push-ups, and I'm up to 12 right now (up from 3). I started doing a minimum of 4 push-ups every time I use the bathroom, and on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I try to add 1 more to last week's maximum- so next week I will be doing 13, the following week 14, etc. up to 20. It's only been about 2 months, so hopefully it will stick.
