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.

Another great workout week

My goal was to work out three times, and I did all three workouts and pushed myself quite hard. I’ve discovered that adding more time on the eliptical machine instead of increasing the resistance works better with the injuries, so I’ve done that. Today I did 20 minutes on the eliptical (I’m up to 25 really, but I ran out of time) some other exercises and then half an hour of core strength with a rather horrible but efficient trainer. She kept saying things like “after this half hour you’ll really hate me” and “even the rugby players that I usually train hate this exercise, but if one single person quits, everyone will have to start all over!”. She was right, I kind of did hate her. ;) But I felt good afterwards. And I am noticing that I can do some of the exercises better, so I am getting stronger.

If only I could get my eating under control, I would lose the weight I want to lose in no time! But I’m not going to beat myself up about that. I’ll just try again this week. Getting a proper exercise regime going after a long time of only sporadic exercise is a great accomplishment. So yay me! Same goal next week, three workout sessions, with a few added repetitions on the strength exercises.
