Saturday started ok, I'm not sure if the humidifier worked or not. I'm going to try it for a few more days and see what happens. I was extra excited to go work at the restaurant because I got new Reebok Easy Tones! They are sneakers that are supposed to use moving air technology to tone your butt & legs while you walk. Angela has a pair & was saying she thinks they're helping so I decided to try them out. I found a color that I like on sale at Sports Authority, aren't they cute!
We're still out of milk so I couldn't have the delicious maple cereal. I decided on a yogurt and banana = 215 calories.
The restaurant was crazy slow, I think people must be out finishing their shopping & getting trees. The bad part about business being so slow, other then not making any money, if I get hungry & there isn't anything to take my mind off of it. I had a slice of rye toast with a little butter & grape jelly = 105 calories. But I can tell you that the Easy Tones definitely work. My things were feeling tighter after just a little walking, I'm excited to see if it helps my weightloss at all.I got home super early, ran to the grocery store to pick up last minute supplies for the recipe exchange & cleaned the house a little. Everyone started showing up around 6pm, we had such a great night! I really love my friends! But I am the WORST food blogger ever...I didn't take any pictures of the food, not one. I did the rough math & I believe I ate 1669 calories over the course of 4 hours... Here are pictures of all the lovely people.

The basic premise was that everyone would make their favorite holiday recipe & bring it over with recipe cards to share with everyone. We had cookies, buffalo chicken dip, veggie casserole, gorilla bread, cupcakes, muffins, taco dip, fudge & baklava, it was all delicious, I seriously cannot believe I didn't take pictures of any of it. There are some leftovers so you'll probably see some of it as I polish it off.
Daily wrap up:
1. completed 30 fitness minutes (I'm counting walking at the restaurant)

4. Tracking: 2377 calories burned - 1989 calories eaten = total 388 calories burned
5. It was an awesome evening, totally counts as a relaxing thing.
