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.

Day 2

I feel pretty good about today. I’ll admit, I’m pretty tired but of course that comes along with a long day. I ate very well. Popcorn, 100 calorie snacks, stawberries at school. I came home and ate some boiled eggs and popcorn and my dinner. I had left over rice from last night with chicken and balsamic vinagrette dressing. I got a good workout today in the pool, so I’m satisified with today. I plan on doing cardio tomorrow and getting up a bit earlier than normal. After this blog, I’m going to say goodnight to my friends on Twitter and I’m going to relax and hopefully sleep in my bed.

Day Two!

So far, this morning I worked out, showered and am currently getting ready while writing this. So far, I had cereal and 1% milk. I’m also in the process of guzzling down some coffee and eating frozen strawberries (thawed of course.) I prefer the strawberries frozen only because they last longer. I brought some low fat cheddar popcorn with me to school and have a 100 cal. pack with me, also. I might bring the strawberries though, because I’m not a huge eater in the mornings. When I come home, I have 3 hardboiled eggs waiting for me, two of which I’ll only eat the whites. For dinner, I plan on having a shake and salad. I have pool today in school which means more workout time! Yay~ I feel pretty good about today, too. Let’s get to it! :D

Latter Part of Day One

So I think yesterday went pretty well. I didn’t get the chance to workout because I was just exhausted by the end of the day. Last night I ate some left over chicken I had the night before from an Italian resturant. I know you may have a red flag right now, thinking “Italian Resturant?!” But no! I ordered Grilled chicken and it came with brocolli florettes and sundried tomatoes. So I made up some white rice (we were out of brown) and cooked up the chicken, adding more tomatoes, a little sauce for flavor and more brocolli and some sauteed onions. (A very small amount of the onions.) Yesterday, when I came home I also made myself a salad with a few pieces of chicken some tomatoes and cucumbers and low fat balsamic vinagrette. So overall, I feel good about yesterday!
