Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

Weekly: Go to the YMCA 3x or more (read all 13 entries…)
I've been doing pretty well with this.

Going at least 3x a week for the past month or so; mostly running, starting to think about strength training and maybe swimming, eventually. Fell off the wagon a couple of times, but I feel like I’m back in the habit of going regularly. Early morning is the best time, I’ve found; I don’t have to pay for parking if I’m done before 9 AM, and it just makes my whole day better. I also have some (vague) plans and future goals, which help motivate me, such as (maybe) running a 5K and also lifting weights regularly.

ALSO! MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH! I finally (today) did some strength work in the Big Boy weight area. :) Where I was the only woman lifting! I even took some risks and figured out the cable station etc. I didn’t lift anything particularly heavy yet – that will come in time – but I did my whole routine there and didn’t get scared. Felt awkward a few times because there’s a real shortage of open space in the area (it’s hard to figure out where to stand if you’re not making use of a bench). I liked it though, and I can’t wait to get more comfortable/efficient with my routine so that I can really start to work hard.
