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.

SonyWhat? Why? How? When?

What this goal entails?

The Insanity workout routines are high intensity workouts from Beachbody that let you transform your body in 60 days without the use of weights or equipment. You can find out details about it here – http://www.beachbody.co.uk/product/fitness-training/insanity-workout.do

I am not going to advertise this yet – because I am not sure about the results until I try it out myself.

Why would I do it?

1. To lose weight (D’uh!) I am not going to be specific here, because anything I lose is good enough for me!
2. To expand my physical comfort zone (For now, I have zero tolerance to physical exertion.)
3. To be part of a community or circle of friends who are doing this alongside me.

How do I go about this?

1. Find a buddy (already done and I have 2 – Carolina & Ryan)
2. Decide on a suitable time (thinking early mornings – and nights as a contingency)
3. Do it EVERY SINGLE DAY!

When do I check this off?

ninagoldenSecond Time Around

I started once before and got through the first month. Loved it. I felt so strong, even my dancing improved. I then had wrist surgery and have been afraid to put this sort of strain on my wrist again. However, I think I’m fully heeled now, having no pain and I’m ready to start again…wearing a wrist brace.

Today is day one…fit test! 15 months ago

I started the Insanity workout today, after hearing very good things about it. Day 1 is just the fit test, but that alone nearly killed me. I am determined to complete this though. You do the fit test every couple of weeks and the aim is to beat your previous score in terms of how many of each exercise you do. Here are my scores for this week:

1. Switch Kicks – 83
2. Power Jacks – 42
3. Power Knees – 72
4. Power Jumps – 40
5. Globe Jumps – 8
6. Suicide Jumps – 13
7. Push ups – 35
8 Low Plank Oblique – 55

Hopefully I’ll see an improvement in 2 weeks :) 23 months ago


chelseafaithFirst update: Day 2

Well, I took my before pictures yesterday and I have completed two Insanity workouts. They were definitely intense and I had to take some breaks. I don’t have a scale at my house so I’m not sure how much I weigh, but I would rather go by how I look and feel anyway (and how my clothes fit). I’m also eating very well according to an eat-clean diet plan I found. I’ll update again soon! 23 months ago
