Back to the gym, milk in boobs and all the jiggles

This Friday is the start of the return to Crossfit. Yes, it's back to the gym, one day short of 6 weeks post baby. My fears becoming more apparent as April 1 approaches. Here they are for the world to see:
1) Boob leakage - a little known part of breastfeeding that Mom's keep as a secret. Breastfeeding utters leak milk randomly! so I fear, what if the milk decides to show up undescritely through my sports bra to show off my liquid gold
2) Boob bouncing - this is just as painful as some WOD's, the coaches just don't understand why us well- endowed ladies roll our eyes at the mention of double unders. There is just no good sports bra to put an end to the misery
3) huffing, puffy and jiggles - As stated prior it's been 6 weeks since I was about 50 pounds heavier, that weight doesn't all fall out with the baby (babies don't just fall out either.)

As for motivation (as though fitting into my pre-prego clothes is not enough motivation) my hubby and I are challenging each other to a "weight-off" to see who can lose the largest percentage of weight. We're going Biggest Loser style rather than who can lose the most pounds. It's a 6 week challenge, and he has his own methods - boot camp being one of them. I'm going the Crossfit way and am convinced that with breastfeeding, Crossfit and a modified paleo eating plan, I've got this "weight off" under wraps.
