Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping Update #3

I posted back in July that for a challenge, I decided to try a 10 week extreme bodyshaping class. The class was 6 days a week. MWF was kickboxing cardio. TTS was bands weight training.

My stats at the start:

1 mile run: 7:37
1 min pushups: 50
1 min situps : 38
Bodyfat%: 13.8

My stats at the end:

1 mile run: 7:03
1 min pushups: 68
1 min situps : 53
Bodyfat%: 13.2

So I did improve in every category. I thought I could get to 6-7% bodyfat in 10 weeks, but doing that was tougher than I thought. Overall, it has been a positive experience and I will continue to attend the classes through their F.I.T program.

Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping Update #1

For a challenge, I decided to try a 10 week extreme bodyshaping class that started on July 20th. The class is 6 days a week, MWF is kickboxing cardio, TTS is bands weight training. Its called "Farrell's eXtreme Bodyshaping". My stats at the start:

1 mile run: 7:37
1 min pushups: 50
1 min situps : 38
Bodyfat%: 13.8

Will have tests again at the 5 week and 10 week points to see how everyone has improved. I am aiming to get my bodyfat to 6-7% by the end of week 10 (Sept 26th). I will update again with my stats at 5 weeks.

Lending Club Update #1

I continue to be a fan of Lending Club and plan on increasing my investing with the site. Too date, none of my 11 loans have EVER been late (much different from Prosper where almost 40% of my loans have DEFAULTED). Here are my lending parameters for Lending Club:

Rates: A - D
Credit Score: 660+
DTI Ratio: <10%
Delinquencies: 0
Funding status: 75% and higher
Loan Amount: $10,000 or less

These parameters have provided me with 0 defaults and a 12% return so far. I will update this blog over the course of 2009 with my lending progress.

Lending Club

My Lending Club loans continue to all be on time. This is encouraging for the idea of P2P Lending and bodes well for its future of the industry. Given the current credit crunch, it is something to consider as an alternative way to get a loan if you need one. I will continue with Lending Club and start putting more money back into it this year.
