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.

Some tips for those in search of the fountain of abs

I’m a chick…and I was able to get cut abs. Here’s what worked for me: As far as what to eat, read Bill Phillip’s ‘Body For Life’ – I read the book and started the diet, which wasn’t really a “diet” to me. I eat awesome food on this so-called diet. No rabbit food here and nobody is paying me to say this. The diet focuses on feeding your body for maximum muscle and it gives exercising guidelines. There is valuable info in the ‘Myths’ & ‘Q&A’ section. Check it out…more than worth the price of the book (or get it @ the library).

As far as exercises, old-fashioned crunches are the way to go. To ‘up’ the intensity, get a large exercise ball. I know guys…you’re probably afraid they look girly, but they WORK! I started using one of these and saw the best results yet with it. The resistance from flexibility cranked up my workout. Adding weights to your workout after you’ve developed enough strength will do the final “touch-up” to carving your abs rock hard.

Exercises will build your abs, but it’s the right diet and cardio that are going to SHOW your abs. You hit all three points and you’re going to do it! I wish you all the best of luck. I’m pregnant, now, but when this pregnancy is over, I am GETTING my six-pack abs back and I’ll be busting tail right here with everyone else.
