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.

its getting easier

i can go a few hours between massive vegetable feedings… and i’m getting creative with my veggies. either this cleanse has made my tastebuds totally whack, or broccoli coconut soup is damn yummy.

but sugar, oh sugar, how i miss you so!

all in my head?

i’m starving… i want carbs!

its crazy because it’s only been 2 meals, and i went to the grocery store yesterday and loaded up on all the yummy things i can eat. i made a sundried tomato and basil pesto (sadly, no pinenuts allowed) that i ate yesterday on top of my wilted greens and poached egg. this morning i made a steamed egg with scallions and ate it with tomato slices with fresh ground pepper and sea salt. i even cheated and had a piece of sprouted whole grain toast.

unfortunately, candida isn’t a totally vegetarian friendly cleanse because they allow you to eat a variety of “natural” “free range” and “grass fed” meat proteins, but no tofu or soy products are allowed. so the only protein i can have is my free range organic eggs. and i don’t know how many eggs i can really eat a day without dying of cholesterol.

but seriously, i’m eating a lot. its weird how we are psychologically hungry and full based on what we perceive completes a meal and really makes us satisfied.

started today

my friend actually asked me to do the candida cleanse with her out of the blue.

2 weeks of veggies and veggies and more veggies coming my way. i’m already hungry just thinking about it.

leonard has gotten 4 cheers on this goal.
