#onesmallchange Week #3

Today begins week #3 of Marcia's #onesmallchange challenge... and this week I have decided to concentrate on making sure I take my supplements.

I have been dealing with low blood protein, low globulin counts and low white blood cell count for some time now, and I know it is is important for me to eat properly and take the supplements that support my immune system... but I sometimes just don't bother with them.

This week, I am adding that to my #onesmallchange list.  I have put them in a place where I cannot fail to see them every morning.  No more excuses!

I am doing very well with both of the first two changes I have made - putting my water into bottles each morning is a good visual reminder for me to make sure I empty them before bed time.  On mornings I do strength work I usually have the first half of my water drunk by the time I have finished my after-workout stretch.  Other days, I space it out throughout the day.  But, I am getting it done.


  • Week #1 - no snacking after 8 pm
  • Week #2 - drink 64 ounces of water each day
  • Week #3 - take supplements each day

Are you working on any small changes, to improve your health?


  1. Awesome! Awesome! Awesome Elle! You're doing so well and being so consistent. I can't say enough about supplements. They've made a real difference for me. I too had fallen away from taking some but am back on it now and wow can I tell a difference. Thanks for linking up!

  2. I'm working on drinking more water too. I get bad cramps in my feet during ballet classes so I'm trying to remember to eat a banana in ballet days to boost my potassium (or whichever mineral it is). I do hope it works!

  3. walking more.
    I HAVENT DRIVEN IN AGES (to the coffee shop each day to write :-) I have to drive to the grocery)

  4. I'm always looking for ways to work on my health and fitness and to help others do it as well.

    I've been running for a long time also. I love your story and where you live! I went to Vancouver and Victoria city (!!!) before leaving on a cruse to Alaska with my family!

  5. Great job!!! I am not doing the challenge but I am concentrating on listening to my inner needs more - the ones I try to ignore! ;)

  6. You've picked some great, small changes to focus on each week Elle. Hope this challenge continues to go well for you!


Love it when you leave me a comment!
