It’s a New Year and Courtney Covers Cleveland is Back!

It’s a new year and #CourtneyCovers Cleveland is officially BACK!

I learned the hard way, that I really should stop making promises I can’t keep. I always mean well when it comes to my blog and I REALLY PROMISE (couldn’t think of another word LOL but this one I’m keeping) to do better in 2018. I’m not going to make any announcements I’ll just post. I learned when I state I’m going to do something by a particular deadline hmmm… I usually miss it and get discouraged or embarrassed that I didn’t keep my word and that’s what happen with my last post.

If you follow me on social media, you know I’ve had pneumonia the last few weeks so I’ve been locked in the house and resting. No work, no blog no anything! So with the sickness of pregnancy, a family vacation, the holidays and then that diagnosis, I haven’t been writing, posting or visiting any new places. I think I’ve said this before but I didn’t know how much work this would entail. I love my blog and will keep doing it but it’s hard to carve out time while working full time, having kids/ a husband, attending sports every evening and running a household. Sometimes there’s really just not enough time in the day. My goal for 2018 is for one night a week, just focus on ME and my blog!

I’ll also let you know that, in 2018 I’m all about SELF CARE (article catered to this soon)… Unapologetically! Meaning when I have to do what’s best for me I’m doing it. That could be lock myself in the bathroom put on headphones and soak in the tub, or turn down weekend commitments because I need to rest and take care of myself and baby. It could also mean making fancy plans for dinner with my husband so I can dress up and feel good. When you’re pregnant sometimes you just need a reason to get out- disconnect from everything and spend time with someone you love! I love my readers because I know you all understand that sometimes I’m tired, sometimes I’m overwhelmed and sometimes I just need a break from everything. I feel like most of you can understand that. Right?

I will keep the blog going, and I will post more often but I’ll always be transparent about my life and my shortcomings. In 2017 I launched this blog and in 2018 I’m looking forward to bringing you more great places, people, and things to do in Cleveland. I’ll continue writing about experiences on date nights, my girls nights, lunches, and dinners. I’ll probably spend more time looking for family outings as spending time with my family is always my top priority. I’m looking forward to not just family friendly dinners but places where my 16 year old, sopon to be 10 year old, and 2 year old can all have a good time. Also, while I’m pregnant – I won’t just focus on healthy restaurants but also explore services for women. I have a few local products and spa spots planned early so I’m excited to share those as well. So I have a good plan for 2018 and I’m excited to take the journey with you!

So… here’s to 2018 let us hold each other accountable and have a great year! If you think it’s been too long in between post, shoot me an email, send me a DM or comment on my IG saying hey… just checking in, hope you’re working on a new article. That’s a great reminder for me to do what I said, which is to make time for myself and make time for my blog!

  • So the one thing I refuse to do during #quarantine is gain the Corona 19! So I subscribed to @nulifefitnesscamp TV and I start my mornings with a workout. This morning, my husband @crewcamp_bo joined me!
.
.
We did a 45 minute cardio class with @mieshanulife and just when he was ready to quit she came through the TV lol literally listen to the video lol... this was almost the end of our workout in his defense 😂 and swipe for the Martin comparison lol
.
.
My husband and I have committed to pushing each other to stay fit (I even made him throw away his brand new apple pie) but it’s also kinda fun and another way to connect while we are home together. I do all of our healthy shopping and cooking but he joins me in the kitchen for a glass of red wine. Tomorrow we will also start @watermeloneggrolls @nike running challenge of 30 miles in April! .
.
What are you guys doing to stay fit? .

  • Last week I started an amazing new weight loss program and in the first week I lost 5lbs without stepping foot in the gym! What did I do? Simply change my eating habits and start using @profile_sanford ! #AD .
.

This program (which is backed by science and takes a DNA sample) was developed by physicians and researchers tasked with creating a healthy, safe, and personalized weight loss experience. In doing so I am paired with a Health Coach. She helps me create my weekly plan, set goals and pick my weekly products. We have weekly meetings (now calls) to talk about my progress and goals so I love the accountability that comes with this program.
.
.
Now that I'm shut in, I can get everything I need for the week delivered right to my door step! I can't wait to see my progress- especially since I've started working out. Check out my IG stories to see my week one results. Read more about @profile_sanford by clicking the link in my bio! Receive $100 off when you use the code: COURTNEY100

  • The Coronavirus hit #CourtneyCoversCleveland pretty hard! No events to host, no events to plan, no events to attend or promote. No new restaurants or bars to cover. A few contracts canceled or postponed and... my $1,500 MacBook Pro that I had less than a year Bryce spilled coffee on the day before my birthday and it never turned back on. No AppleCare and of course liquid damage isn’t includee in the manufacturers warranty. So let’s say the last few weeks of business have been rough...
.
.

In spite of it all... this picture is everything! I am beyond blessed to have such an amazing family- spending time with my kids all day every day has filled my heart. If you watch my stories you know we are having a good time being quarantined. I spend most of my days in the kitchen— literally all day lol cooking various meals- and playing games or learning with kids! My husband is missing because he was binge watching Billions in the other room lol .
This is just what I needed. Between my computer breaking, my migraines coming back- and all my friends telling me to slow down. This break from everything has been a gift in disguise. I hope you are enjoying being at home with your family as much as I am! What are you guys doing? How are you guys holding up? How’s your business? How many times have you been to the grocery store lol? .

  • The face you make when mommy says you will still be reading and doing educational work over the next three weeks that school is out. #AD .

That might’ve made him sad but this new OREO Shamrock McFlurry definitely made him happy! Lucky for us @McDonalds is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Shamrock Shake (which I had) and for a limited time you can enjoy one of these two treats too! .
.
Not only that but for every Shamrock Shake sold, McDonald’s will donate $.25 back to one of my favorite charities @RMHC — it’s a double win! #McDonalds #ShamrockShake dotheShamrockShakeRMHC #CourtneyCoversCleveland #stpatricksday #greenshakes #mcflurry #oreomcflurry #sweettreats #afterschoolsnack
  • Last night #CourtneyCoversCleveland had  the pleasure of hosting the Advanced Screening of Little Fires Everywhere at Silverspot @discover_pinecrest .
.
We had such a great time! All the guests received a Little Fires Everywhere notebook and T-shirt, and complimentary popcorn and beverages. .
.

Special thanks to all the Shaker alumni and residents who joined me! LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE author Celeste Ng grew up here and the story is set in Shaker Heights! The movie is soo Shaker! I encourage you all to tune in next Wednesday and watch the first 3 episodes starring @kerrywashington @reesewitherspoon .
