Stroll n' Smoke

I started going to a stroller fitness class. Before I went, I thought it sounded really lame but it's something to do, I need to lose weight and my friends go. Turns out it is challenging, so that's great. Another stroller activity that I've been considering because I still need stuff to do, I still need to lose weight and my friends could do it too is Stroll n' Smoke. I'm not sure where to register for this but I see a lot of mothers taking part and I like to be on trend.

I've done some light research and I think Stroll n' Smoke has some serious benefits and since I'm a Domestic Scientist, I've compiled a list of them.
  • the cigarettes will suppress your hunger so you get the calorie burning walk in while fending off hunger for the day. 
  • If you're nursing on top of the Stroll n' Smoke, you burn even more calories!!
  • Also, you might find that you rarely get asked to take care of anyone else's kids. Bonus. 
  • You and your baby get at least 50 percent more fresh air than when you two do the Smoke n' Drive!
  • Finally, it's a special time to bond with your baby as you stare into each others' eyes through the haze of smoke and coo and cough at each other. 
Where do I sign?? I'm afraid that I have to admit that I take part in the harshly judged Caffeinate n' Stroll. The stroller's cup holder says specifically that it's not for hot beverages and at every bump hot coffee bounces out of my coffee cup and gets dangerously close to Spawn's eyes. But now there's a whole other kid to deflect the coffee away from her and anyway, I'm a bear without coffees 1-3. It's a risk we're willing to take as a family. I may as well throw some squats and a smoke into the mix?
My toddler destroys everything.  She scans the room like the Terminator, hones in on something that she can destroy and doesn't rest until her job is done. She's very thorough. And annoying.
