Handstand?!

Good morning!!   Happy 5 days until Christmas to you all!   This morning, I decided to share with you what I’ve been working on since on my break from running.  I’ve written about my Crossfit/Bootcamp class, which I’m still taking 3-4 times a week.  This group experiences has opened so many doors for both Hubby and I!  It’s been amazing, even if it’s only been about a month.   My Handstand!

I’ve also provided a food journal with everything I’ve eaten in the last few months.  And yet no real definitive answers.  My doc thinks it might be colitis — though the cause is unknown.  I was just told to wait and see….
