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.

Forester321Week 4 - Set back

I was going strong on this goal until Sunday afternoon. A couple of times a year, I am not smart about lifting and pull the muscles in my lower back. On Sunday, I had to move our generator. It’s on wheels, but one side is lifted like a wheel barrow. I’d forgotten that there were 8 gallons (32 liters) of fuel in the top of it. ouch! Hopefully, I can restart on this Monday and get back on track. All week, my only exercise has been walking. 2 years ago

Forester321Week 3 - Done

I managed 6 days again this week and increased each set by 3 reps. Doing the exercises in the evening is not ideal but is working. Having a pad so that I can do the exercises in the living room and put something fun on the television helps. 2 years ago

Forester321Week 2 - Done

I managed to complete the exercises six days this week. There is a difference in how my midsection feels; and it feels good. My problem is that the time being devoted to this is leading to slacking on other resistance exercises. Something else to figure out. 2 years ago

Forester321Week 1 - Done

I managed to do the abdominal exercises 5 1/2 days this week. My body’s adjusted so that my abdomen doesn’t feel stiff anymore. By the end of the week it was possible to do an extra three reps with each set. It’s easier to do these at the gym in the morning than later in the day at home. 2 years ago

Forester321About this goal

There is not much extra weight on my frame. Also, abdominal and core strengthening exercises have been part of my regular workout routine. Still, this seems to be an area that could use some work, and my workout needed something different. We have a book that has a 12 week program and I started it yesterday. Clearly, my previous workout was missing some areas, because I’ve discover some muscles that I’d obviously forgotten. ouch!2 years ago
