    Well, the holidays are taking their usual toll in the intake of calories. Who can say no to roast beef and mashed potatoes? Pies and cakes? Pistachios, every kind of cheese dip known to man, homemade cookies, eggnog, anything and everything that you can think of in terms of food for the holidays, well, 90% of it is not good for you. However, If you can’t treat yourself on Christmas Day to a few cookies, what good is life anyway? But it has been a little easier to treat myself since we got the upright bike. I’m glad we didn’t wait until after the holiday. Usually I pedal for a half hour, four days a week, burning a few hundred calories each time. These days, I’ve added five minutes to my routine, and an extra day. I should be adding a few minutes every week to my routine anyway, but to be honest, I just haven’t had the time to do that during the last month, with all the extra hours I’ve had to work. (Retail, remember?) But it&

    So, the bike came! And it wasn’t difficult to put together at all. The directions have those kinds of pictures that show you exactly what to do, and the hardware was all sorted neatly and labeled, and there were only nine steps until we had our own upright fitness bike. Funny how something we almost avoided—working out—was quickly something we wanted to do, both of us wanting to be the first to test out the new bike. Me first! Me first! Like little kids. It’s perfect. Takes up even less floor space than I imagined, and runs so quietly. I remember the exercise bike my mom had some fifteen years ago, and it made such a racket that you couldn’t hear the TV. Not so with this one. I watch my TV shows, biking, and am surprised how quickly the time goes by. I haven’t even played with all the settings yet, but it does all those things the one in the gym did, pulse, speed, distance, calories burned, etc. My husband p
