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.

Have been doing exercises lately. Irregularly, but better than nothing. It feels good and I feel motivated to continue… 8 months ago

15 Ab-sessions this month. Good. 10 months ago

FeeLizBeen a good girl

One of my good intentions for this new year is to regularly exercise chest-, abdominal-, and back muscles. If I don’t reach 10 times / month, I’ll donate to a good cause that month (yes, failure can have a positive side :-p). If I make it to 15 or 20, I’ll treat myself to special treats. So far so good: 4 out of 5 days. 11 months ago


Last week I once again started with ‘from now on I’ll do abs or back exercises every day!!’ and kept it up for a full… 2 days. Way to go. 12 months ago

FeeLizNow and then...

Now and then I practice a workout called ‘core rythms’ which is supposed to strengthen abs. Don’t really feel anything though. Now and then I do some yoga-ab exercises. Now and then I do some other ab-thingies. I think it might not be enough… :-) 14 months ago

FeeLizWeek 2

Week 2 didn’t go quite as well as the first one. I got some really bad news in the middle of the week that knocked me out so my head wasn’t really up to anything. However in the last days of the week I did the exercises that I needed to catch up on and finished on schedule. This morning I already did 3 of the 7 series for the week. Going well. 22 months ago

Week 1 – check. Very easy. 22 months ago

FeeLiz1st step

So, I’m making aminiture first step towards stronger abs. I’m doing 1 exercise twelve times daily, a different one each day of the week. According to the training manual I’m supposed to do all 7 of them each day 12 times, but i know myself, I’d keep that up 2, max 3 days. However there are no excuses whatsoever for not doing 1 exercise, it takes me 3 minutes tops. It’s better than nothing (my muscles are actually aching!) and it’s a good first step. I’ll try keeping this up for a good while and then reevaluate! 22 months ago
