Don't overdo your down payment. If you spend all your money in a down payment, you may not have enough to do the improvements you want. The rule of thumb is if you are moving into a fixer upper, go for 10 percent down.
Don't rush into your home loan, as there are dozens of types. The strategy that you develop for the type of loan you want depends on where you see yourself in five or 10 years. Managing your debt payment with an interest-only payment will give you an opportunity to save that money for retirement or save it for a college fund.
I’m just finished my first week of just maxing out on doing as many pullups before work each day as I can, and even today (friday) it’s started becoming easier (though my fingers still hurt :P), monday I stopped at around 14 because I noticed an area on my left side between my shoulder/tricep area that seemed abnormally sore, the next day I pushed through it and just kept stretching it out doing 31, then 41 and 42 the following day. But I was only able to do about 2 in a go, maybe eek out a 3rd that was hit or miss, but now friday I’m finding it easy to walk out and do 4 then come back and do 4 more later, my goal for the day is 60+. I’m excited to see what ill be doing next week (and giving my fingers a rest this weekend).
