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.

Gone to class a few times now – thinking about doing it 3X a week. Mon/Wed/Fri would be really nice. And then perhaps doing the weight training class on the opposite days. I don’t know – but I am falling in love with going to the gym. Hope to make more of an effort to do it more than once a day – and at least everyday. I can feel the difference in so many ways. I drink more water, I sit up straighter, I have a better attitude, I do not get sleepy in the afternoon, I avoid unhealthy foods (sometimes) and feel motivated to keep on going back to the gym. I can see that little bikini body in me somewhere – just have to chisel down and find it!!

cycle faster?

HOLY BAGEEBERS! There is no feeling like making it through your first cycle class at 6am on a Wednesday morning. Joined a new gym today – a community center – that offers some awesome classes. I think this will really pick me up and get me on the workout band wagon. Plus, I drank a lot more water today and was more conscoius about what I had for lunch. All in all – I’m on an upswing.


Looked into joining a 6am spin class today. Am thinking of just DOING it tomorrow and seeing if I like it. What do I have to lose? WEIGHT. haha that’s a good one!

focus focus focus

Need to do this because the feeling inside regarding my weight is killing me. Its making me sick just thinking about how far I have let myself go.


I need to work on this goal. My pants do not fit the way they used to. Getting embarassing. :(


Went for a really good walk yesterday around Round Lake. :) Plan on doing another walk today.

walking it off

Today I am going to start walking – 30 minutes a day. Don’t care when or where – but TODAY I start walking – towards my goal. haha how cheesey was that!?

time to shape up

Getting older – and no need to get bigger….time to cut back, re-think how I eat, and learn to love working out. It is worth it!
