No one ever told me that my boobs would disappear. When I started doing CrossFit, working out, eating better, no one ever said, “Hey, your boobs might mysteriously vanish.” I was not clued in.
And it’s not like it didn't happen over time, because it did. It happened over the course of almost two years. But for some reason, it feels like it happened over night. One day they were there and the next day they were gone. One day I had quite a handful... Now??? My sports bras barely have enough to hold on to! Darn! Where’d they go!!!
Did they vanish into the Bermuda Triangle for boobs? Is there such a place?? I figured that there must be, because I don’t know where they went. And it’s not like I had this receding boob line, that I could follow the disappearance of the boobies a week at a time, and mark where they were the week before. I swear, it happened over night.
So I wanted to understand it better, and I found this nifty article on decreasing your breast size through exercise. The motherload!!! So, how would one do that, without expecting it? The article says, “Not every woman that desires a smaller bust will want to go through breast-reduction surgery. Instead, you can perform sets of exercises that can reduce the fat that make up your breasts. Not only are you likely to decrease your bust size, but you might lose weight in other areas of your body.”
Hmmm. Exercises that reduce the fat that makes up your breasts... The article says to start with some cardio workouts and then increase the intensity of your cardio exercises. It goes on to recommend that push-ups are done every day, and weights should be used for chest presses.
Another article says, “Remember that breasts, for the most part, are made up of fatty tissue. Exercising can lead to fat loss, which in turn leads to smaller boobs. Exercise can also tone up the pectoral muscle, helping to lift and define the breasts.”
Lots of things surrounding push ups and chest presses, not to mention cardio -- exercise. WOW, CrossFit fits the bill there. CrossFit is the culprit! I never would have thought that!
I can only begin to fathom how many push-ups I have done in the past two years – how much cardio activity I have done. Have I been methodically making my boobs disappear without knowing it? Did I do this to myself? Is CrossFit the culprit?
Ladies??? Help me understand! Is this something you experienced? Are experiencing? Has CrossFit, or exercise in general, reduced your boobage???
