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.

Well I’m a teensy bit proud of myself right now. I went to the gym at 9 am this morning. I having been to the gym on a saturday in god knows how long. And I haven’t had a binge free saturday in forever! I just really didn’t feel like wasting another day on food and feeling lazy. So I went to the gym for an hour (my iPod died after 11 minutes… somehow the hour still wnet quickly!), went to the grocery store (twice), and went driving. So a lot of moving around today, which is always good. I pondering over whether I want to do yoga or not…

Broken Treadmill (cue the sad music)

Well, the treadmill is broken. It feels like I just lost my best friend. And until I can salvage enough dinero to get it fixed, I have to go to the gym. I ellipticalled(sp?) for the first time in forever yesterday, and let me tell you, it kicked my ass. I practically fell off when the hour was up. Ditto for today. In a way my bestie breaking was a gift, because now I actually have to WORK out. I was getting too used to my lazy jogging. My mom’s annoying me though. She’s not even making an effort to get it fixed. Well, until she does, I hope she’s ready to go to the gym EVERYDAY. She’ll thank me later :)

Ugh, I have to go out to eat for my brothers birthday, and to a STEAKHOUSE. I’ll have soooo many vegan options there. On the bright side, i’ll probably be stuck with pathetic salads.
