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.

liquid junk

I’ve had a really good week. Six workouts, six days of calorie deficits (some huge, some tiny), so many healthy and delicious meals. I’m not sure if the scale will reflect all of that, but I FEEL better and that’s all that really matters.

Today hasn’t been as great. I’m giving myself Sundays as a day off from working out… and apparently from eating healthy, too :/ If Since I won’t eat anything else today, I’ll have a calorie deficit of about 50. A bad numbers day, but I’m not getting too down on myself.

Instead of ending my day with a healthy dinner, I decided to let myself splurge on a fancy, ice cream-like beverage from my favorite coffee shop. I’ve been eyeing it all summer but today’s the first time I actually tried it. The first several sips were DELICIOUS. But as I drank more and more, my stomach started disliking me more and more, as well. Imagine that. A 20oz mint chocolate chip “drink” made me feel ill? No way!

I still think it’s OK, and even healthy, to splurge every once in awhile. But it’s amazing how your body doesn’t react as well to junk after you’ve shown it how good healthy can feel.

Back to lots of fruits and veggies tomorrow. I can’t wait.

ooamaimomooo Things change or they get strange with this movement of time

Yay!!

Yay! I’m glad for you!! I’ve had sort of an opposite week to yours… :/ Work out wise has gone well—I worked out 5 days this week, but I’ve gone over my calories by (at least) a couple hundred this week. Boo me! We’ll see how much damage it’s really done tomorrow.

Anyway, congrats on your good week! <3 It really does feel good when you stay on track.. I should remember that everytime I reach for that really sugary iced coffee/energy drink.

They truly are the death of me! :(
