Mark Fisher Fitness: 6 Ways to Stop Emotional Eating in its Tracks
by Mark Fisher Fitness - Sep 8, 2013

We've all been there. There is an emotional trigger and without even really thinking, suddenly you are eating. The first bite tastes great but then you barely taste anything. You may find you are eating with such ferocity, it actually hurts a bit going down but before you know it, you have polished off an entire loaf of bread, half a left-over apple pie, an entire bag of potato chips or a pint of ice-cream. To say you feel gross is putting it mildly but like many people, you may just say, "What the hell?" and keep on going. Might as well fall of the wagon hard if you are going to fall off, right? Might as well make the most of it? (more...)

BWW Reviews: LES BALLETS DE MONTE CARLO Brings Jean-Christophe Maillot's Darkly Compelling Adaptation of 'Swan Lake' to NYC
by Sondra Forsyth - Mar 17, 2014

I'm not a fan of the fact that standing ovations, once reserved for truly superb performances, have become almost routine in NYC. Often, in spite of not being able to see the curtain calls while everyone in front of me is up and blocking my view, I remain stubbornly in my seat if I feel that plain old clapping is sufficient. Yet on the evening of Friday, March 15th 2014 at City Center, I was on my feet with the rest of the audience to applaud Les Ballets de Monte Carlo's excellent performance of choreographer-director Jean-Christophe Maillot's "LAC - after Swan Lake". The ballet premiered in 2011 but the all-too-brief run from March 14th to 16th this year, celebrating Maillot's 20th anniversary with Monte Carlo, was the first chance NYC dancegoers have had to see this magnificent production. That's probably more superlatives than I've ever included in the first paragraph of any review! (more...)
