Feel Good Friday - Week in Review

Friday Yay!!!
How fast this week has gone. Are you Feeling Good??? I hope you all have fun and exciting plans for the weekend. Before you get all busy with your plans, in the spirit of Feel Good Friday let’s take a moment to reflect on the good things that happened this week.


  • Top of my list is BP stopping the oil leak!!! About damn time.

  • The Boys & Girls Clubs of America will earn more than $2.5 million (with another up-to-$1 million matched by James' sponsor Nike) from the Lebron James announcement. – Link

  • 70,000 Gulf Sea Turtle’s will be saved from the oil - Link

  • Philadelphia and partners of NeighborWorks America announced a campaign to fight against foreclosure bailout scams. FYI if you think you or someone you know may have been scammed here are the contact numbers. …Save Your Home Philly hotline number = 215-334-HOME (4663), The national hotline = 1-800-995-HOPE (4673) -Link

  • New Jersey is getting closer to legalizing medical marijuana. (I know any news related to legalizing weed will make some of you feel good) - Link

  • "Lose the Training Wheels" camp is coming to Philadelphia. The camp helps Special Needs Children learn to bike ride without training wheels. I LOVE THIS!!! – Link

 In addition to things in the news there were several personal things that made me feel good this week.

  •  Saturday – playing with my friend’s new puppy and all the babies at her nephew’s b-day party. Nothing makes you smile like babies, puppies, and kittens (shame there were no kittens at the party but then I guess that would have been a bit much :-)

  • Sunday – not running into a few people I’d rather not see while having Chinese food (Real Chinese food not the American version of it. The kind Asian people eat. No chicken and broccoli, or General Tso in sight) in their neighborhood.

  • Monday – Setting a new personal best by jogging 30 min on the treadmill. I will get to those 3 miles (see Devil's Workshop)

  • Tuesday – Book Club always makes me feel good. I also made a decision on how to handle a situation that had been weighing heavily on me.

  • Wednesday – I won the weight loss challenge at my job this week. I have the crown until next Wednesday when it goes to the new winner. What if I win two weeks in a row???

  • Thursday – Zumba I always have fun in there, despite the pain.

  • Every day this week – The voting started for the Miss Curve 2011 contest. (Link) I am a contestant. Every day friends have been voting for me, leaving the nicest comments about me, texting, emailing, and facbooking me with well wishes and messages of support. Also, my virtual trainer blogged about me. Everyone’s support has made me feel so special. It is so wonderful to be reminded of who is in your corner.


What made you feel good this past week??? Please share so we all can feel good along with you.
