Tip 1. Eat a Nutritious Breakfast
After a long nights sleep it is important to refuel. It will help you do better in school. Some ideas for quick, healthy breakfast: Peanut butter on toasted whole-grain bread, Yogurt with fruit, Cheese slices on toast, and Fruit on cereals.
Tip 2. Eat a variety of foods.
Your body needs nutrients and many different vitamins and minerals from a variety of foods. Balancing food choices from the Food Guide Pyramid and checking nutrition labels will help you to get the nutrients you need.
Tip 3. Get moving....Get Jogging And Running
Walk, bike or jog when going somewhere. Climb stairs instead of taking an escalator. Try to do something active for a total of 30 minutes every day.
Tip 4. Participate in activities you enjoy.
Always start with warm-ups to get the muscles going. Do 20 minutes of an aerobic activity followed by activities that will make you stronger like push-ups or sit-ups.
Tip5. Choose healthy snacks.
It is wise to choose snacks from different food groups. Some choices would be: graham crackers, an apple or celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins.
Tip 6. Include whole grains and fiber in your diet.
Try breads such as whole-wheat, bagels and pita. Spaghetti and oatmeal are also good choices.
Tip 7. Participate in physical activities at school or out side.
This would include physical education and sports. It will make you feel good about yourself.
Tip 8. Drink plenty of water.
Your body is 65% water. That shows how important water is to your body. Make sure you drink a total of 8 glasses of water each day. That can inlcude the water from foods such as fruits.
Tip 9. Include others in your activities.
Take a dog for a walk. Walk or workout with a friend.
Tip 10. Having FUN is important.
Try new things, this can be in activities or food. Never be afraid to try....who knows you might just like it. And your body will thank you in the end.

One other thing to note is that most kung fu forms feel really weird for a while! They make you use your body in a way that is unfamiliar. It's for the best in the long run, but can be very off-putting to begin with. Trust me, it does pass! A good example is the wing chun style of punching, where you don't put any of your body weight behind it - it feels odd, but you learn to use only a small set of muscle groups, then you see how fast and hard you can punch that way, then you learn to use lots of tiny muscles that connect the joints together, and in the end you've got a very powerful punch that doesn't give your opponent warning or set you off-balance.

Like I say, you get used to this kind of thing, and it's fantastic when something clicks and suddenly it starts to feel so right. biggrin.gif

Oh, and knowing your personality a bit, I think that a kung fu form would suit you or perhaps Ju Jitsu (that should narrow things a bit for you!).
