This is a good article to read: http://www.t-nation.com/training/crossfit-the-good-bad-and-the-ugly
As for daily movement patterns, i would look to:
The Naked Warrior by Pavel book and DVD – i love his GTG “Grease the Groove” methodology which basically says to do movements never to failure all day long. walk under a chin up bar, do a few chin ups, then continue on. come to a chair, do a few single leg pistols into it. then walk on. etc.
Convict Conditioning book and DVDs – lots of body weight stuff in there, so doable in/around the house
Original Strength and Original Strength Performance by Tim Anderson – he promotes a ton of basic movements like crawling etc. You can download his original book Pressing Reset.
Exploring Functional Movement DVD by Gray Cook and MovNat guy Erwan Le Corre – Gray Cook is a PT and really into early movement patterns for rehab and health/fitness. You should also look into MovNat.
