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.

amandaperlGroceries for now, garden for later

I bought more fruit this weekend, for smoothies and to eat directly. I also bought a fig tree and plan to buy strawberries next weekend, which will generate a little fruit now and hopefully lots more later. 4 months ago


sea_stormYum

Just smashed down a banana, peanut butter and date smoothie (500-600ml) and a giant white peach for breakfast. Delicious! :D 4 months ago


sea_stormAbout 7 years ago...

I was the healthiest I’d been in my life and I’ve never been quite the same since. I was exercising a lot and eating heaps of fruit and staying hydrated! This afternoon I had a banana and date smoothie and ate a few extra dates as well and I had so much energy, I didn’t even feel the need for a mid afternoon coffee! Recently I’ve been restricting myself a bit and the result has been that I’ve been craving sweets and bread a lot, so perhaps I need more healthy carbohydrates. So tomorrow after work I am going to stock up on some more delicious bananas and dates and try to eat more than one serving of fruit a day! I may get myself an insulated bottle so I can have smoothies while I’m out and about. 4 months ago

amandaperlAdventures in smoothieing

I picked up a pitcher at Goodwill – I can blend in it, then it can go in the fridge so I don’t have to find a place for leftover smoothie. I made a peanut butter/banana/blueberry/yogurt/milk smoothie. It was not very exciting. I didn’t want to add extra sugar, and neither bananas nor blueberries have a lot of natural sugar in them. Also, peanut butter is worse than bananas for dominating a smoothie. Still, it got more fruit and protein into me. I just need an improved recipe. 4 months ago

I eat granola every day, so there could be fruit in the granola. And nuts. 4 months ago


amandaperlIdeas

I don’t like to buy imported out-of-season fruit, but I’m okay with stuff that stores or is frozen. And I live in a state where spring is really sort of starting.
So to vary my only-apples-all-winter diet, which gets very boring and also apples don’t store so well after February, I would like to explore the world of frozen berries and such.
I am considering upgrading my immersion blender in order to make smoothies more of a thing. Fancy immersion blenders that come apart and go in the dishwasher are expensive, so I may live with what I’ve got and just acquire a larger blending container. 4 months ago
