  2. I want a garden and the ability to do a pull-up, too! Tomatoes and biceps. The finer things in life. :)

    • Haha, I know! I felt a little silly putting a pull-up on there, but dammit, they allude me something fierce. And it seems near-impossible to get a garden when you’re apartment living :(.

      I’ll tell you, though…someday, I’m gonna do 10 pull-ups. And celebrate with a tomato from MY garden.

      • The crossfit goal will help with the pullup goal- take it from someone that has tried a million things and they still elude me- after 2 weeks of crossfit (I am in the middle of 2 months off for other reasons, but I can’t wait to get back!) I was closer than I ever have been!
