    I get up at 4:45am and do a half-hour bike ride. We own the world's best random number generator disguised as a set of portable scales. I too have found that my weight doesn't seem to change a whole lot based on just exercise.

    I've been trying to moderate my intake. My approach is three-fold: don't put too much on your plate, don't feel bad about leaving food on your plate, and only snack on things that make you poop. I've eaten more fruit in the last few weeks, I think, than I did last year. I lost a few pounds on this regimen after two weeks, but then YAPC intervened and, as anyone who saw me eat at YAPC will attest, my self-control went out the window.

    Good luck with the riding. See you at OSCON!

I try to get to bed around 9pm at night, which means basically "as soon as the kids go to sleep". That's real hard to get used to, not to mention when I change timezones for travel and can't bikeride but am expected to party late. Uh, I mean, network. :-)

        In the words of Bart Simpson, "there's a 4:30 in the morning now?"

        To be honest, I don't ride that far. I try
