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.

Amazing workout yesterday. 25 minutes on the rowing machine (hello glutes!), 20 minutes on the Arc trainer, some assisted dips/chin ups, and a half hour of stretching and some head stands :)

Feels wonderful. 2 years ago

My husband woke me up at 5:15am yesterday making weird, scary moaning noises in his sleep. So I took the early wake-up as an opportunity to go to the gym. I arrived at 5:40, only to find the closest rec centre to me doesn’t open until 6am! So I went another 5 minutes down the road to the other rec centre, which I like better anyway.

Did interval training on the Arc Trainer (love that machine!) for 30 minutes, some upper body work (machine-assisted dips, pull/ups, chin-ups), and 15 minutes of great stretching. Felt great.

I also weighed myself and was 2 pound lighter than the last time I checked. :) 2 years ago

The other day I did a lower body weights session. Ooooohhh man, were my muscles sore the next couple days. Feels good :) Yay me. 2 years ago

Today I went to the gym – the first time in about 3/4 of a year. The reason I stopped going was that I joined a yoga studio and was doing that as my main source of activity, plus hiking. But I have been finding that yoga is a slow process for gaining muscle and strength, and cardio is not great with yoga.

So I’m going to head into the new year with a more balanced approach to physical activity. I’ll create a schedule to keep me on track – perhaps two days/week at the gym, a bunch of yoga, and some hiking, and maybe even I’ll get my bike out.

At the gym today: 30 minutes of good cardio on an eliptical hill climber, 5 minutes on the rower, 15 minutes on the gravitron (weight machine for chin-ups, pull-ups and dips), and 10 minutes of stretching. Feels good, and I was pumped as I had my Nano with workout music. Yay me :) 2 years ago
