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.

Started doing it again in August, and I've kept it up!

Now… do it EVERY WEEK!!!!

For the sake of my heart....

I have to start doing this. My A1C was 5.7 and I am going for a stress echo on Monday.

I will beat diabetes if it kills me by exercising! Arrrghhh – how did I ever let it get this bad!


What’s this????

See the writing curriculum goal….

However, since I am having a pain in my left shoulder blade, I guess I better start walking! (This pain only after my children make me scream, blow a gasket, and have an aneurysm!)


I need to do this – it helps me not RAGE soooo much! :-)

I've not been consistent...

that’s a problem when you try to actually start a habit over a holiday period…..

I have to get back on track next week.

I walked...

three times this week – today – 2 miles!

I’ll try to wear the pedometer next week the whole time to compute my steps.


I joined the Bob Greene Walking Club on ediets…..I’ll post my stats when I get the pedometer and begin uploading my data to the computer.

This will be interesting. I think I’ll see that I exercise more than I really think I do and that’s why it’s not helping me lose weight is because I am already active and I need to get active differently or in a challenging way.

Ohhhhh teammmm???? Sweetandtasty and Procrastinatress....

I am doing it!!!!!

Ok - so....

I went to the gym Friday morning, and this morning, and I am water walking tonight. If I go to the gym tomorrow, and then Friday, I will have done this for this week.

Ok - I did it!

I went to Riverchase and walked Thursday around the track for 2 miles, and today, I walked the dog in the evening for around 1 1/2 miles.

So far so good….let’s see if I can keep it up next week.
