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.

Yay for bags o' salad!

They make this goal much easier. Been doing pretty well with adding small salads to lunch this week; next week I’ll try to add some fruit in at breakfast, too.

Step one

Had sweet potato fries (frozen, baked) rather than Girl Scout cookies when I was feeling peckish last night.

maybe tonight...

I actually just started focusing on this again a couple days before I got the team invite! Great timing.

Latest favorite recipe: Boil water, add spaghetti (or fettucine or something else long and stringy). Julienne or peel in strips a couple carrots and a zucchini, toss them in about a minute before the pasta’s done. Drain and top with pesto. Mmmmmm…pesto!

Got the veggies in the fridge, just need a night where I have time to boil water…


obviously counts. I’ll have no problem in the next couple weeks.
