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.

I went walking a mile tonight. That counts for some of it right?


If I start back to the tanning bed… does that undo all the ‘healthy’ that I’m working on LoL!


I’m back to drinking a lot of water… and I’m not smoking!! WooHoo!! I think that’s a good start to getting healthy!! And I also worked out for a good half hour tonight… sure, that’s not alot.. but it’s sure better than nothing!! Haha!

For the record

I am getting healthy… I’ve stopped smoking for 4 days now (YaY) and I can now drink 10 cups of water a day!! WooHoo!! Won’t be too much longer till I get to mark off a whole lot of stuff!!!

1 Day down..

Today I ate cereal for breakfast instead of my usual restraunt food… tonight I ate a veggie burger plain and a piece of caramel apple cheesecake ( oh it was good too! ) and 13 doritos. I actually think that I’m doing good!! Haha. I hope that I will be able to stay away from the restraunts alot more than just today!

It's a start

This morning for breakfast I ate cereal… as compared to DQ’s sausage & biscuit - that’s a little healthier right?

Is there really a -healthy-?

To me healthy is eating right the bigger portion of the time. Being a safe weight. Exercising, and being mentally and physically strong. Geeze.. when I go to looking at it, I guess that I’m expecting alot out of myself to be healthy. Ohh well. I need it! In a real bad way!
