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.

From bad to worse

What can i say… what excuse should i use this time??? I’m pm-sing, I’m stressed, I love eating, I hate diets, I was feeling down, had no time to cook, I’m trying to get pregnant and can’t seem to, I hate my job, I’m bored, I go out to eat lunch most days, my closest bud at work is pregnant and has all kinds of cravings which tend to become my own … i can go on forever. But these are just excuses. I’m binging because I’m supposed to be on a diet and i can’t stop thinking about food and chocolate and all the things I’m supposed to be giving up. Yes, I know, I know… I’m not supposed to look at it that way. It’s supposed to be a life style change, blah, blah, blah… I just can’t, sorry, I re-phrase, I just have not yet had the will, motivation, strength of character to do it.

Weight watchers on Sat. Great.

Up to 4K now...

Did 4K with my running group yesterday. We are running 5 minutes with a minute break. I’m loving this weather…

I find it hard to get motivated to run when there is snow on the ground. My apologies to those who love a white Xmas, but I grew up in Brazil so a white Xmas is not necessary for me. The longer it takes the snow to come, the more I will enjoy my runs.

If you are a social person and want to try running, I highly recommend a running group.

Thursday - wake up at 4:45am

Okay, this is going to sound crazy but I’m actually enjoying my yoga and it’s getting easier to get up so early.

See all entries ...
