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.

Buy an alarm clock

I knew I had one laying around somewhere. =)



cook everything from scratch
A Great Decision

I’ve drastically changed my diet and it wasn’t that hard. I’m now only eating fresh veggies, fruits and lean meats. I cooked up a big pot of vegetable soup and I’ve been eating it all week. A handheld food blender (the kind you stick inside the cup) has been a good purchase. I also drink tea and coffee with non-sugar sweetener to get me through the day. It stops the cravings for things that aren’t good for me. It has been hard to get off the sugar kick, but it has been worth it. Slowing down to eat properly is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. I FEEL GREAT.

I’m using the Fat-Burner Foods book by Dr. Shreeve for super-healthy menus. Here are some simple & quick things I love to eat:

1) Half a melon (any kind) blended with 1.5 cups pineapple juice

2) 2 bananas blended with 2 cups lowfat milk

3) Lean steak fried in olive oil topped with sliced tomatoes

4) Grapes mixed with chunks of melon, drizzled with pure honey

5) 100% pure organic carrot juice blended with celery

6) Baked potato topped with anything lowfat

7) Any salad topped with tuna or chicken & lowfat dressing
