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.

Need to run. Bike. Swim. Do insanity. Weights. Cut out sugar.. cook healthy foods 9 months ago


Today is my day off after back, shoulders and abs last night.

Unfortunately, I’ve experienced pain in my right arm near the tendon, which is bad. So, I’ll try and refrain from doing any more damage to my right arm. It’s upsetting because I need my arm for all the exercises so I probably shouldn’t do legs tomorrow to avoid serious injury. 9 months ago


Chest, Biceps, Triceps Workout

Did all of the exercises with the 8lbs band and it was OK for most of the exercises. Just struggled with the resisted pushups so only did 3×8 reps. For all of the other exercises I did 3×10 or even 15 reps.

Back, shoulders and abs tomorrow! 9 months ago

amayanaLeg Day

I did legs yesterday and it was rather miserable, haha! I was incredibly tired after running around all day and so were my legs. 9 months ago


Did back, shoulders and abs today. Kept switching resistance bands because I think my shoulders are still quite weak in comparison to my back and abs. I was OK with the 8 lbs band during the back and abs exercises but had to go back to the 3 lbs band for the shoulder ones. Maybe next week I can switch to the 8 lbs for all of them!

I never thought it would be so much fun. I feel so much more accomplished after my workout sessions and even a bit sad on my off days haha. But I’m sure at some point I will be thankful for those off days : )

Tomorrow it’s time for those legs! 9 months ago


Boy, did I ever used to be in shape! Gym every other day. Muscular. Toned. Everything just right.

Unfortunately I ‘feel in love’ and lost all of that. Now I’m a frail guy and not fit at all. I want to get back to being in shape. Right now, I don’t have the extra funds to join the gym… but, at the moment, I can work out at home. Go for walks/jog. All of that. 9 months ago


Started a bodybuilding workout since I don’t need to lose weight. Today my workout concentrated on chest, biceps and triceps. I did 3 sets per exercise.

Tomorrow my workout will concentrate on back, shoulders and abs. 9 months ago

amayanaMore challenging

I tried the 8 lbs band today and the exercises were a bit more challenging already! I did the same general workout as yesterday but added 3 sets that focus on abs. I feel more tired and more sore than yesterday too so I’ll think I’ll take tomorrow off and keep going on Tuesday. 10 months ago


I got the Bodylastics resistance bands today and I tried them out immediately. They are super fun and they work! I did a very basic workout and I think I’ll try a more resistant band tomorrow to make it more challenging. I feel pretty good and can’t wait to whip myself into shape!! 10 months ago
