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.

I'm done!

I’ve pretty much had flat defined abs since I was a child(I dunno, genetics I guess). They got a little less defined during college, thanks to the freshman 15. Recently I’ve been doing a lot of ab work and spinning. I’ve also eliminated white flour and processed sugars from my diet. I am proud to announce, they’re back and they’re here to stay!!

Still doing the 100 a day

Between that and quiting sugar my abs are looking Maxim Mag ready!

Keeping up with my 100 crunches a day resolution...

I feel like they are looking better already!! I quit eating sugar and that’s helped too.


I stayed for the 15 minutes of abs after kickboxing this am (I usually leave early to have extra get ready time before work) I also did 100 crunches last night, and decided I am going to do the 100 daily. I’m on my 2nd day sugar free, and I noticed the little layer I get on my stomach when I’m eating a lot of carbs has subsided. :)


Focused on my abs during my weight training session this am…may go back for a 60 minute spinning class tonight to burn that layer.


I skipped the 15 minutes of abs after spin class in order to have extra time to get ready before work. However, I have been working on my form, which involves tightening your core while you ride, so the spin classes alone should be helping…not to mention the fat burn they give you as well.


Did 15 minutes of abs in my kickboxing class. Getting there…


Continuing on with spinning and kickboxing classes (to burn the fat), I also went to the gym at 6:00 am this morning and did a 15 minute warm up followed by an hour of weights and abs. I have a pretty good start (I already have definition) but I want the crazy ripped abs!

Ab Fab

I did a a spinning class with 15 minutes of abs afterwards Monday morning, and a cardio kickboxing clas with 15 minutes of abs afterwards today. Yay for me!


I want to:
