There's an old saying you may be familiar with: "Where there is a will, there is a way". The first thing to realize is that whatever you decide to do, it will not be the same as CrossFit.

I would try to get in some basics bodyweight resistance training and some plyometric style cardio as it will help with the explosive power of your muscles.

I'm not a doctor but I'm theorizing a little here. Your hands don't need much blood when you're running - thus you're body is taking blood from them and sending them where it's needed (i.e. your breathing muscles and your legs). That could explain the cold hands. I'd probably just wear some gloves for a while until your body adapts. The sugar-craving and ...
