Evolution of goals

So, yesterday will be one of my get out of posting free cards. Not because I didn't want to post or I was too busy but because I hurt my calf, took a muscle relaxer and human sentences were not possible. Sorry, folks.

Today's prompt - how have your goals evolved/changed is an interesting one.

I think the biggest change is that my goals have become more concrete and less about numbers and more about truly measurable/visible tangible things.

I no longer want to be thin or weigh 160 pounds or less - I want to be able to shop for clothes in normal clothing stores, not have to go plus size specialty stores for everything. 

I no longer want to have a healthy BMI.  I want to be strong and fit - able to bench press 100 pounds, do full push ups, be able to do burpees with correct form, run a sub 30 5k.

The reason for the shift in my goals is the realization that, as a patient with thyroid issues and PCOS I can't hold myself to standards like BMI - they may never apply to me as healthy is going to look different on me.
