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.

Good for me

I took this picture a week ago in Vegas (I’m on the left). I saw how it came out and I actually liked how I looked. I’m proud of myself. :D

I like my body. I feel good. I feel sexy. Job well done for me, I say.

Week 10

I’m determined to drag my sorry butt to the gym three times this week. Wish me luck. (I hate getting up @ 6 a.m.!)

Week Nine?

So I’ve been slacking off so much I can’t even remember the last time I went to the gym. But finally I felt so bleh that I dragged my fat lazy ass there at 6 a.m. and kicked my butt on the treadmill for a good solid hour.

I’m leaving for Italy in 20 days and I will be in shape, dammit!


So after four weeks of INTENSE working out, practically everyday, my workout buddy Katie got married. Her goal was to look good in her wedding dress…and I’m happy to say that mission was a success!

Now we just have one more month to get into shape before Europe…eek!

Week 4

I definitely see (and feel) some improvement. My arms are nice and toned, which is good since I am wearing a strapless dress to a wedding this weekend.

But still, my abs need work. sigh

Anyone know good ab workouts that tone you quickly?

Week 3

I’m getting discouraged. I am eating more than I did before I started trying to be healthy. And I now despise getting up at 6 a.m. to go to the gym and work out. And I’m not seeing any results! Argh!


Ok, I’m on week two of my workout regime. I’m happy with my progress though. I can see some definition in my arms and I can even feel a little muscle without flexing.

But, on a sadder note, my abs definitely need work. I’m too embarrassed to wear a swimsuit. A long, long time ago I had a six-pack but now it’s just flab. :(
Stupid freshman 15 at college. Pfft…I’m a junior now and still working it off!

One month to get in shape...ugh

One of my best friends gets married in one month. For some unexplicable reason, I decided to help her get in shape for her wedding. So three days a week we’re at the gym for 2+ hours, and then on the weekends, we swim for 3+ hours.

Kill me now.

Who knew getting in shape could be so painful?
