pizza obsessed and a wedding ring nightmare

hey ya’ll ( secretly wish i lived in texas so i could say that all the time)

anyway so i’m not sure what it is but i have a secret love for pizza.  which screams all things bad.  awesome.  but there is hope.  although it may not be as awesome as a superfood salad it, it tastes a little better and i feel like a normal human when i eat it:) cuz only normal people eat pizza? so at the moment i am craving this.  yum. go make it. (click on the photo to take you to Oh She Glows )

in other non food related news, crossfit is kicking my butt but i couldn’t love it more.  i walked out with my first battle wound… not really that awful but my hands are nice and ripped up after learning elbows to knees and toes to bar.  not to mention looking like a fool learning a kip pull up! my fingers were so swollen after that i cant get my wedding ring off! i’m a little nervous  about it (i’m having nightmares of a doctor sawing my ring off!) but hopefully it’ll go down!


anyway, i’ve posted before about being frustrated like nothing is working and i’m so down on myself, but over the past few weeks after visiting dr dave as well as starting crossfit i have seen a huge change! not only am i less emotional/slightly depressed (thanks to the herbs!) i can feel my body responding really well to crossfit! if anyone is interested in hearing about the herbs that i am taking leave a comment and i can email you exactly what i am using.  basically dr dave told me my hormones needed to be balanced as well as the way my body metabolizes certain foods(thanks to my nifty genetic mutation called MTHFR, more on that later)  i am so grateful i searched for a natural solution for this rather than going on the anti depressant my doc prescribed.  (now i am not saying that an anti- depressant isn’t useful to some, i am saying that in my mild case i believed i could find a natural alternative).  i can’t tell you how much happier i feel!

my body is no where near perfect but i feel more at piece with myself than ever before.  i can attribute it to the herbs, homeopathics, and crossfit! it takes a min to find what works but right now things are good.  i’m blessed.

happy hump day!
