How should I word this goal?
I am writing out the next 10 top goals for the next 12 months, and one of my goals aren't really measurable. All my other goals are worded so that when they are complete I will actually know it 100%, and thus be able to actually check it off, and move on. I can't figure out how to word be fit, and healthy. Yes it's vague, I know, but that's the problem. I don't have any weight to lose, I don't have any specific desires within body comp, don't have any actual measurable specifics if you understand what I'm saying. I really just have a goal to be all together much more fit, and healthy than at present. Does anyone have any ideas on how I could go about measuring such a goal?

I would advice to have some sort of measurable outcome for yourself. It will make the journey much more motivating.
Maybe you can try aiming for running 5 miles in under 20 minutes, bench press 150 pounds or maybe you can try to measure the amount of energy you have each day?
I have set for myself the goal to throw a baseball 90 mph, at the moment I throw 80. This is a real source of motivation for me and helps me work out, not just my arm but my whole body.
Hope this helps.

Hi Scorpio. How would you know if your fitness got to where you want it? If you went through the work but didn't get any fitter, would you still feel that you had achieved? If not, then how would you know you'd failed?
Do you see where I'm going with this? Even if you can't measure it, you'd have to at least be sure you know once you reached the target. I would try for something definable, such as being able to lift 'X' when you deadlift, or run a 10K in under 'Y' minutes, etc.
If you really can't define a level of achievement, then how about measuring commitment? Eg, train 5 times per week, for at least an hour. So, if you do this, you achieve, if you train less- you fail.
Really, other than that, just do what you have to and don't think in terms of success or failure. Just do...
