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.

lose weight
A big journey

I hate my weight. I know that it’s all down to too little exercise and my job doesn’t help that. I want to loose it, and I’m determined to do a lot to get there.

Today I weigh around 214 lb and I want to reach my ideal, around 150lb apparently. I also want to get down to a 34 inch waist (4” off now).

There’s going to be quite a few changes to my lifestyle to make this happen. Healthier foods, eating 3 meals a day. I’ll be cycling every couple of days, varying between high intensity hills and speedy uphill cycles. Less carbs, more protein… and push-ups in the morning.

I’ll be tracking my food intake, exercise and weight throughout the next few months and hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll have something to report.

Wish me luck.

Moving again...

... so I’m trying not to take too much with me. Most of the stuff is staying in my old room at my parents while I attempt to keep my list pretty spartan when I move to university again.

Wish me luck!

Do NaNoWriMo
Getting prepped

I just realised it’s the start of september and all I could think of doing was freak.

I’m hoping I’m going to be able to fit this in. I did NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) in august so I’d get used to writing every single day and it’s helped quite a bit.

I’m just hoping I’ll have the time. It’s a lot of words, and I’ve got classes and work and all the other things that come about with university. crosses fingers
