Anyone lift here?Weights

I've been mixing up some different workouts lately, trying to get a good blend of muscle and endurance. Tried some crossfit, some basic powerlifting stuff, body weight only, etc... I made a video about what seemed to work for me.
I am 30 years old mind you, so I am just slightly starting to feel some wear and tear on my joints. I have been on a no Sugar, HFCS or alcohol diet for about 4 months now so that is probably helping quite a bit.
If you have a fail proof, awesome workout post it here. Or just one that you think I should try. I'm down to give anything a shot, provided it isn't an obviously ridiculius routine, or something I know doesn't work.

You know what I hate? 400 repeats.
Here's a good workout. 7 mile building tempo, 3 mile fartlek, maintenance 400m.

2 mile run. I like to change up the location. Woods is my favorite.
10 minutes of Elliptical at it's highest resistance.
45 minutes of lifting (8 exercises 3 sets of 10 reps each)
10 minutes of stretching

Mon: Pull ups, burpees, wait a bit, 5 mile run
Wed: Clean and Jerk, dips, knee raises on pull up bar, plyo jumps (have to do 2-3 mile run this day as well)
Fri: Deadlift, Bench press, wait a while, run 5 mile
I have been switching the DLs with just bent over rows and shrugs so I don't have to ... negatively affect my running for the leg strength to do high DL weight. It is really the best exercise, but I guess I can't have both. It makes me mad cuz this other guy I know, who I work with can Deadlift a ton and still runs faster than me. Genetics I guess, or steroids.. idk which.
I will sometimes switch those up. Like, this happens a lot, something will happen where I have to miss a day or two, like my constantly rotating work schedule gets in the way, and I end up doing them different days.. but still the same basic rotation. I consider the most important movements, in my opinion, to be clean and jerk, burpees, pulls and running/sprints.

But seriously, props to you on the willpower. I always do a similar thing during lent (giving up sugars), but I'm always back drinking sodas once Easter rolls in. As for my workout, I have a much milder workout than what has been posted. Basically I'll bike a couple miles, maybe jog two or three, then go light on the weights. Every two/three times a week I'll do a six exercises abdominal workout x2. Up until today I thought I was in pretty awesome shape for a comic book reader, but it seems like the bar has been raised.

I haven't worked out since December of 2011, so I am pretty out of shape right now. As of yesterday I had decided to pick up my training and see if I can get in better shape than I am now, because I feel weaker, not as fast as I used to be and my endurance completely sucks right now. So I figured that I get back into my Karate training and see if I can keep it up and not drop it like I did months ago.
My work out consist of...
150 - 300 Jumping Jacks
90 - 100 Push Ups
100 - 220 Sit Ups
Rapid Combination Punches
3 sets of Stretch Kicks - 20 Reps each leg
Technique Drills- Hand Techniques, Leg Techniques, Jumping Techniques, Combination Hand and Leg Techniques
Kata- 1st Kata to 8th Kata.
