critique on my starting workout

hey guys, I am going to start a new training regiment and was wanting some advice or ideas on what I should add or do more of and what not. I haven't kept in the best shape and I have started watching what I eat and eating better foods and proportions. I have lost ten pounds in the past two weeks from just that and some random lifting and running in certain places.

I am 6 foot 4 and at the moment 237 pounds.

I am going to take BJJ and Kickboxing classes at a local gym in august. but here is what i was thinking of doing

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday:
stretching, light ten minute jog, 30-60 minutes of lifting with burpees between each lift, light ten minute jog, and finish with more stretching
Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday:
Interval training at a local track 6 100m sprints then ten burpees, a 6 200 meter sprints then ten more burpees, a 4 400 meter sprints then 10 more burpess. finish with a mile jog and stretching

that is what i am thinking at the moment. all help and suggestions are welcome

Not to burst your bubble but the 10 pounds are likely to be water weight but good job non the less.

When you diet you extract water from different areas of your body. While you drink more water remember, you sweat it out up until 30 minutes after strenuous workouts. I'm not saying it's all water weight but don't get discouraged when all of a sudden the losses slow dramatically. That's the point of where you start digging into the fat but remember you're also digging into the protein as well that with water help build muscle. Just be sure to drink lots of water, get your protein, and try to do cardio in the mornings after you wake up on an empty stomach. You'll see better faster results that way.
