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.

Going for a walk in an hour, migraine be damned.


Another hour walk. No hurts this time.


Walked 2 days ago for a solid hour with a friend. Pulled a tendon. Ow.


Walked today.


Did a different DVD yesterday, I think I like the first one better.
Today I had a filling that is really hurting and one of my knees is acting up.
I will see how I feel after the painkillers start working, but I might be giving this a miss, today.

4 days straight now

Walked again. Pulled leg muscle slightly right before, went anyway, no problem.


Did Pilates again. Already made a little bit of progress for strength and form. Two of the exercises I still can’t complete, but I was able to hold the form for them this time, which I couldn’t even two days ago. Baby steps.


Walked today. Trying the approach of either this or that exercise, vs. exercise/no exercise. I’ll see how it works.


I just tried Pilates for the first time. I am now in awe of the woman on the tape, who made it look effortless.


I have noticed I am slowly but surely systematically eliminating my excuses for not doing things that either A: need doing or B: are good for me to do/goals of mine. My latest no exercising reason is that it’s been too cold outside (and it has, for someone with asthma-I’m doubly triggered by cold air and exercise itself.)But I have exercise videos that are sitting idle. So today, I found a yoga/Pilates mat that was on sale and just got it. It’s a bit thicker than the average, as I don’t have the greatest knees and need a bit more cushioning than the average 1/8 inch thick mat supplies. But now there is no earthly “good” reason not to be using them.
