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.

that was a minor setback but

About a year ago I broke my 5th metatarsal but its all better know and I really have no excuse so I’m going to start this back up> I intend to use scooby1961’s basic routine off of youtube. I intend to get this started right after next weeks organic chemistry exam.

Two steps forward one step back

well I hit a bit of a snag last week in aerobics.
While I bounding side to full of glee and exhaustion I lost track of my footing and came down at a bad angle. All of of my weight smack dab on the outer ridge of my right foot bearing down on my fifth metatarsal.At the time thought it may be broken, but there was only a half hour left in the routine so I sucked it up with a grin finished out with my best approximation of proper form. Now that several days have passed I am leaning toward the possibility that it may be sprained or just severely bruised. This kinda puts the squat machine and the treadmill off the menu for at least a few weeks. With any luck this will clear up before I lose the sparse gains Ive made low these many months.

exercise (read all 5 entries…)
Well quarter two of PE is finished.

I did weight lifting this quarter. I got 2” off the waist and put 1” on the biceps. I went from 228 to 224 lbs. I can tell already that this is going to be a year be year sort of thing, and that I really shouldn’t expect to see much progress on a week to week basis. For fall I signed up for both circuit weight training and aerobics. I’m cutting down to just calc and physics so that I can really bring my all to the gym for the next few quarters. Hopefully I’ll make some real headway on this by next summer.
