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.

Consistent since November 2011

I’ve been working out 5-6x weekly since November 2011, thanks to the help of Jillian Michaels. Ha!

Next stage

I’m on level 2 of the 30 Day Shred.

I’ve purchased a gym membership- it’s a cheapy gym, but if I stick to it, I’ll upgrade to one with better options.

I’ve purchased a stability ball, 5 lb weights, 3.5 weights, and 1.5 weights. I also have bought a jump rope.

I have a workout partner for at least once or twice weekly. This will go well.

Weekly progress

Okay, so this is my first official week where I’ve exercised 5 days out of 7. I’ve been using (don’t laugh =P ):
-#2 of Carmen Electra’s Fit to Strip (good for someone who needs to get in shape before moving into the more intensive stuff)
-Yoga DVD
-Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred
-Wii Fit for days that I work extra long shifts and have less motivation for the more intensive stuff. Usually just to get blood pumping on a lighter level and keep the habit locked in.

I’ve lost a few pounds, and I feel motivated to keep this up.
