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.

My flexibility has improved out of sight… can’t say so much for my moods, as just the other day I got so angry over something quite silly.

Although, I did manage to calm down quite quickly once I realised I was being silly! I suppose that’s improvement?

Now that my 10 day pass has expired, I’ve signed up for a monthly pass. As it’s not cheap I’m hoping to go as often as I can.

Hooray for yoga!

Day 7 of Bikram

This is still awesome. I still love it. And I can touch my toes again. I struggle with flexibility so I am loving this regained trick immensely :)

Whereas I hadn’t put weight on during the last few years, my body had changed and grown softer and wobblier. I used to train 6 days a week so was quite toned. I’m starting to see muscles again. Weeeeeeee!


Bikram yoga is hard. But you know you’re working every part of your body in those 90 minutes of sweat.

I’m going again today. For newbies you can pay $17 and go as often as you like for 10 days. I’ll try to go everyday for the 10 days.

Bikram yoga

Tomorrow a friend and I are going to check his out. He used to do it years ago and said it’s awesome.

You sit in a hot room – 38°C/100°F and sweat it out. The warmth is supposed to help with your ease into poses (flexibility) and you have to drink a lot of water before, during and after to make up for all the sweat.

Yoga at home is still working for me and I think I’ll do both. Very good for the calm.

This is going well

I feel much better after each yoga session. Maybe it’s because I get a whole hour to focus on me and think about how I feel?

Except for today… the cat was in one of her moods and doing laps around the house. I’d love to close the door, however that just means she will sit at the door and yowl until it is opened for her.


In order to achieve my other goal, “stop stressing out” I’ve decided to give myself this one… learn yoga. My good friend Lauren has been telling me to BREATHE for years. I’ve discovered that that is what yoga is all about. Lets see if I can learn to turn myself into a human pretzel yet!
