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.

Complete the 42 mile 5 boro bike tour
Sunday was awesome!

I completed the 42 mile 5 boro bike tour and it felt great. Training definitely helped in the endurance arena and also with the hills we did. I was so pumped by the time I got to the Varrazano Bridge and realized the incline wasn’t that bad and I felt great. I was blowing by people on a mountain bike which is harder than a road bike. I am really looking forward to doing more of these events…maybe a triathlon. At least I will start to train for one.

Anyone know of a good site or book to read on training for a tri??

2 days since I stopped MC

The water weight is back somewhat. My stomach isn’t concave like when I was just on the LA, and my body isn’t as cut…but that’s what diuretics do. I am eating egg whites for breakfast w/ 1 piece of turkey sausage. Lunch is a salad w/ chicken, or fish w/ all sorts of veggies and a vinagrette, no cheese. I have a snack of 1 Ryvita cracker and tuna salad. Before I workout I have an apple. When I got home last night I had some crackers and mixed nuts while I cooked my dinner of 3 prawns, shirataki noodles and mixed veggies. It felt like a lot of food considering how little has been in my system…but it felt clean and not heavy like beef, pasta, fried or oily food. I am trying to eat more veggies, fruit and clean foods to prevent cravings. If I go for a long time w/o food I crave junk and I tend to overeat. I still crave sweet every now and then, but I have some reduced fat wheat thins and hummus or some mixed nuts and the craving passes. I don’t feel like I am denying myself, and I have had great workouts while on the cleanse and I hope they continue. My trainer said she likes how my body is shaping up. The cleanse reset my body back to a healthy way of living. I still have not had any alcohol in almost 1 month and that also feels good. I will try my best to stay off cheese and red meat and fried foods. I have more energy when I eat clean, and I feel better b/c my clothes fit better. I hope everyone has as positive experience as I have had.

I look forward to my next cleanse as I am wiser as to how my body reacts. It is a mind set, and anyone can do it.

Happy Cleanse!!

Day 16

I am done, I’m dying to eat. I ran 5 miles yesterday and felt great. I biked 20 on Sunday and felt awesome…b/c I started to step down off the cleanse by having soup and veggies. So officially I made it 14 days. I have been doing the LA on days 15 and 16 for 2 meals, and a small vegetarian meal of hummus, crackers, and soup. I think I will ease back into chicken by thr weekend, but no red meat for a long while. I am just so hungry and don’t want to blow the benefits of the cleanse by waiting so long to eat that I go overboard. Tonight I will have organic lentil soup after the gym. I am wondering if I should go back to 3 meals a day or 5-6 small ones. Should I go back to oatmeal for breakfast or do the LA? What about egg whites?

I guess after my 1st cleanse I am wondering what I should go back to eating.

Happy Cleanse! Next time I will try for longer when my schedule permits.
