Editor’s LETTER

Starting fresh RICHARD BAILEY INTERIORS, LLC

INTERIOR DESIGN A N D D E C O R AT I O N

IF RESOLUTIONS WERE EASY, WE’D ALL BE FIT and trim, with no debts or vices, perfectly organized closets and oodles of quality time to lavish on family. The reality, of course, is that change is hard, unwavering discipline gets tiring and our best-laid January plans are often set aside by March. Still, that’s no reason not to try—after all, success is sweetest when the task at hand is a challenge. If you’re already suffering from some slightly flagging motivation, let us help you get fired up once again. To help you on your journey, we filled this issue with all manner of tips, advice and inspiration. For that “get fit” goal, for instance, we called on star trainer (and big-time hunk) Jessie Pavelka from Lifetime’s TV show DietTribe. To put an end to those “I don’t have the time” excuses, we asked him to design effective workouts you can complete in 10, 20, 30 or 60 minutes. Find his step-bystep plans on page 28. If healthful eating is also on your New Year’s agenda, check out “Eat Well, Head to Toe,” page 24, where you’ll find foods you can eat to protect brains, bones, breasts and more. Those who hope to dial down their stress levels can turn to “Give ‘Peaceful’ a Chance” on page 26, in which we share six strategies to help you relax. Kick your style up a notch by following the coif tips of celebrity hairstylist—and New Jersey resident— Tabatha Coffey on page 32 or with one of the many products we showcase in “Health ’n’ Beauty Booty,” page 18. Don’t see your goal of choice above? Check out “Resolution Solutions!” on page 23, where we offer expert advice on eight common New Year’s vows. Finally, this issue we also start the voting for our second annual Readers’ Choice Awards! Find the poll and how to enter your picks on page 21. Later this year we’ll celebrate all of the winners with a can’t-miss party and expo, complete with treats from all your favorite Morris places. Details are still to come, but we hope to see you there!

The folks at SEATON HACKNEY STABLES in Morristown (973-6553535, www.seaton hackney.com) want you to do the kind of horseback riding you’d like: Want to own and care for a horse, but don’t have the space—or time? Check out the stable’s Equishare program, in which you “time-

need a brush-up? Try the relaxed, sociable “Rusty Riders” or “Desperate Horsewives”

programs. Or are you a newbie who’s always wanted to give trotting a try? Check out the wide variety of lessons, available for all skill levels. The winter season at Seaton Hackney has certain advantages, says owner Marc Schumacher: Because there’s a natural decrease in ridership, the Equishare terms can be more flexible than at other times of year. “And there’s nothing more beautiful than taking a horse out in a pristine white environment,” he says. Seaton Hackney also offers birthday parties; camps; fall, winter and spring “Troops” (in which students advance through skill levels); as well as programs for special-needs children. “We can start riders as young as 3 years old,” Schumacher adds. For any age level, the stables provide a good place to socialize, clients assert. “There’s a lot of camaraderie among the riders,” says Caroline Hatton of Chatham, who rides a former Amish carthorse named Tiny three days a week as part of the Equishare program. “Everybody talks to each other

ISTOCK PHOTO

and it’s just a big friendly barnyard atmosphere.”

Sweet deals Some say that the mere mention of chocolate can elevate one’s mood. Imagine, then, the chemical reaction that occurs when the words “chocolate” and “outlet” appear together. That’s what happens each Friday in Cedar Knolls, when the MOSTLY CHOCOLATE.COM outlet store (1-800-548-6882, www.mostly chocolate.com) is open for business. MostlyChocolate.com is an online retailer of exquisite chocolates from around the world. All sweets are made with no chemicals, stabilizers or artificial flavorings or colorings. The outlet is a no-frills showroom offering an approximately 25 percent discount. Among the many options are Lebkuchen-Schmidt from Germany, Pernigotti Italian Chocolates and Butlers Irish Chocolates—chocolates that can be found at retailers, but not easily. “You won’t find our products in big-box places, only at specialty stores,” says brand manager Alysse Camarda. “They’re a more sophisticated chocolate, for a palate that’s a little bit more refined,” says Vickie Michel of Madison. “And if you really need something, you can call ahead and they’ll have it ready for you.”

Comic relief The old Dover High School building may seem an unlikely Mecca. But in its new life as the JOE KUBERT SCHOOL OF CARTOON AND GRAPHIC ART (973-361-1327, www.kubertsworld.com)—the only institute of its kind in the world—the building has become a haven for aspiring comic artists. “People looking at a comic book would never guess the numerous abilities you need to draw one,” says founder Joe Kubert, 83, an icon in the field who has worked on such classics as Tarzan, Batman and The Flash. “Drawing is the

Circles of friends

easiest part.” While those with a casual interest can take one of the school’s correspondence courses (topics include “Heroes and SuperHeroes” and “Super Villains”), the intensive three-year main curriculum is designed for those with true comic career aspirations. “The school really forms you as a future employee,” says Emi Yonemura, a third-year student from Sacramento. In the first two years, attendees focus on fundamentals of drawing, layout, lettering and—trickiest of all, students say—transforming a script into a visual story. By the third year, they begin developing their own styles. Yonemura hopes to find work as a comic inker next year. Others will follow fellow alumni into companies like Warner Brothers, Cartoon Network and even Hallmark greeting cards. Kubert grad Derek Drymon, for instance, is creative director at SpongeBob Squarepants; class of ’89 alum Jim Keefe draws the Flash Gordon Sunday comic strip; and Brandon Vietti is the Emmy-winning director of The Batman animated series. Even Kubert himself still draws: This spring, D.C. Comics will publish his graphic novel Dong Xoai: Vietnam, 1965, based on the story of a U.S. Special Forces unit. “This business of cartooning—once it grabs you, it’s hard to let it go,” he says.

Perhaps your longtime friends have moved out of the area. Or maybe you’re recently divorced and looking to re-enter the social scene. Or maybe you just want to socialize with some new people your own age. But where to start? Enter NEW JERSEY PROFESSIONALS (www.nj professionals.org), a social networking group launched in August for career-minded New Jerseyans ages 35 to 50. “We offer everything from wine tastings to networking events to single mingles, happy hours and hikes,” says founder Laura Occhipinti. “The idea is to bring people together to make friends.” The group is an offshoot of Occhipinti’s first venture, New Jersey Young Professionals, launched in 2004, which boasts some 2,000 members ages 21 to 39. “A lot of those members were ‘aging out’ of NJYP, so they requested I start something for people over 39,” she says. Events take place at coffee shops, restaurants, bars and parks throughout the state. A one-time membership fee is $21.99; you don’t have to join to attend events, but membership offers perks (admittance to members-only events, for instance, or lower cover charges). In addition to its 300 paying members, the group has some 3,000 people on its mailing list. “I joined the NJP for the opportunity to both make friends and network for business,” says member Justin Powell, 41, of Randolph, who works in Web development and online marketing. “I’ve found the group to be a great mix of folks from varied industries— from corporate to entrepreneurial—and the events offer an easy way to connect with each other.”

‘What I’m listening to ...’ “When making this playlist, I thought about the clichéd ‘desert island’ question: Which recordings would I take to help me survive if I were stranded?” says Trevor Weston, associate professor of music at Drew University in Madison. “These songs cover most of my musical experiences and influences throughout my life, from my Caribbean heritage to my training as a choir boy to composing contemporary ‘classical’ music as an adult.”

Bark-worthy bake shop Part of the credit for the BUBBA ROSE BISCUIT COMPANY (862-209-4677, www.bubbarose.com) must go to Rose, Bob and Weeble. They’re the dogs (a greyhound, a rescued pit bull and a Shih Tzu with a heart condition, respectively) who inspired Jessica and Erik Talley to begin their business creating organic, homemade canine treats such as customizable birthday cakes ($24.95), individual “pupcakes” ($6.95) and a variety of cookies, among other tasty offerings. The Muddy Paws cookies, for example ($5.95 for 16), feature carob and peanut butter, while Valentine’s Day brings heart-shaped Old School Romance treats, with red chicken, yogurt and carob. The store also sells broken cookies, labeled “Table Scraps,” for half price. “We launched just before the pet food recall in 2007,” says Jessica. “Owners were reassured that we are very particular about our ingredients, which are all from the U.S.” The items contain no chemicals, sugar, salt or artificial flavors or colors. Meat-based treats come from free-range animals with no hormones, antibiotics or nitrites. “When you walk by the store, it smells so good you can’t possibly not go in and buy your dog a treat,” says Morristown resident Nicole Vonderheide. “My three dogs even know the phrase, ‘Want to go to Bubba Rose?’ They head right for the door.” A portion of Bubba Rose’s profits goes to local animal rescue operations. And the Talleys recently created their own nonprofit, the All Heart Fund, to raise money to cover costly medical expenses for adoptable pets. Credit Weeble—now gone but not forgotten—for that.

FLASH SUPPORTERS GATHERED AT THE BIRCHwood Manor in Whippany for the Sparkle of Hope Gala hosted by Community Hope. Proceeds from the dinner-and-auction event will help the group provide housing and services to people with debilitating mental illness. The Morris Museum in Morristown, meanwhile, hosted a holiday open house benefit, with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, as well as a holiday shop selling a variety of seasonal gifts. Finally, the Chilton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary held a Cabaret Casino Night to benefit the hospital’s Comprehensive Breast Center. The evening featured games, a tricky tray, live music and more.

Resolution solutions! VOW THIS WILL BE THE YEAR YOU’LL FINALLY STICK TO YOUR NEW YEAR’S GOALS OF SELF-IMPROVEMENT? DON’T GO IT ALONE—TAKE THIS ADVICE FROM THE EXPERTS

HEIDI SCHMIDT

ON HOW TO ACHIEVE SUCCESS WITH 8 POPULAR PLEDGES.

Resolution: Quit smoking Strategy: Meet with your doctor to determine the best treatment option for you, such as over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapies or prescription medications, says the National Cancer Institute. Once you begin treatment, remove all tobacco products from your home, car and work; avoid situations that trigger cravings; find new hobbies to occupy your time; and write down your reasons for quitting, reviewing them whenever temptation strikes. Reward progress with a massage or dinner out— but remember your greatest reward is a healthier life!

Resolution: Work out regularly Strategy: Follow these steps from the Mayo Clinic (but get your doctor’s OK first): Assess your fitness to gage future progress by measuring things like your pulse rate after a 1-mile walk and the time it takes to complete that walk. Create a workout schedule that each week incorporates at least 5 hours of moderate or 21⁄2 hours of vigorous aerobic activity, and two 20- to 30-minute strengthtraining sessions. Start slowly, gradually increasing your routine’s intensity. Re-assess your fitness after six weeks, and again every three to six months. (Need more guidance? See page 30.)

Resolution: Break your tech addiction Strategy: Can’t stop checking e-mail and Twitter? If technology is affecting your work or personal relationships, it’s time to cut back, says Gary Small, M.D., professor of psychiatry at the UCLA Semel Institute and author of iBrain: Surviving the Technological Alteration of the Modern Mind. Keep a log of how much time you spend online daily, then shave a few minutes off each day. Set aside specific times for tasks like checking e-mail, so they won’t haunt you throughout your day. And devote more time to offline activities, such as meeting friends for coffee.

Resolution: Get out of debt Strategy: Keep a diary of your daily expenses for one to two months to help determine whether your expenses exceed your income, says Evan S. Branfman, associate financial adviser with Ameriprise Financial Services Inc. in Melville, New York. If you’re spending too much, look for ways to cut back. Plagued by credit card debt? Try calling your credit card company to negotiate a reduction in interest rates, says Branfman. If your debt woes seem too overwhelming to handle yourself, consider scheduling a consultation with a financial adviser.

Resolution: Lose weight Strategy: First get your doctor’s approval, then consider meeting with a dietitian to develop an exercise and calorie plan, says Andrea Spivack, a registered dietitian with the Albert J. Stunkard Weight Management Program at the University of Pennsylvania. Keep a food journal and surround yourself with supportive people and motivating items, such as fresh fruit. Also make yourself accountable, adds Spivack, whether to a dietitian, a group leader or a friend who’s expecting you at the gym.

Resolution: Declutter your home Strategy: Start by choosing one specific area to tackle at a time and gathering all necessary supplies, such as garbage cans and recycling bins, says Laura Leist, president of the National Association of Professional Organizers. Next, sort through all items in that area, eliminate what you no longer need and purchase and install any additional containers or shelves you think the area requires. Once you’ve successfully organized your space, keep clutter in check by repeating this process every few months.

Resolution: Improve your posture Strategy: “Poor posture causes a tremendous strain on the spine,” says chiropractor Cynthia Vaughn of the Austin Chiropractic Center in Austin, Texas. When standing, avoid slouching by keeping the center of your ears directly above the center of your shoulders, says Dr. Vaughn. At the office, sit with your buttocks and the small of your back pushed into the back of your chair, and keep your feet flat on the floor with your knees at a 90-degree angle to the floor (adjust chair height if necessary).

Resolution: Stop running late Strategy: Start preparing for your workday the night before, from selecting your outfit to making your lunch, says Atlanta-based personal productivity expert Peggy Duncan, author of The Time Management Memory Jogger. If you’re still running late, set an earlier wake-up alarm to give yourself more time to get ready. To avoid tardiness to appointments and social engagements, record the dates and times of all your commitments in an agenda book or an electronic calendar. ■ MORRIS

EAT WELL, HEAD-TO-TOE 6 foods that do your body good—in some surprising ways Eyes Eat this: SWEET POTATOES Here’s why: They’re a great source of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that promotes eye health and can help prevent cataracts. Did you know? A sweet potato also contains almost twice the recommended daily allowance of vitamin A, which is essential to vision.

Breast Eat this: SALMON Here’s why: Salmon is a rich source of vitamin D, and research indicates that boosting your intake of this vitamin can lower your breast-cancer risk. Did you know? Salmon also contains omega-3 fatty acids, which may add to that cancerfighting benefit (experts aren’t yet unanimous) and which otherwise amount to a health-effects home run, benefiting arteries, blood pressure, brain, eyes, metabolism, muscles and more.

FEBRUARY 2010

Eat this: APPLES Here’s why: They contain a flavonoid called quercetin that has been shown in studies of mice to protect brain cells against injury from oxidation. High apple consumption has also been linked to lower-than-average rates of one kind of stroke. Did you know? Apple-juice studies suggest that apples also may heighten the brain’s production of a key neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, improving memory.

Heart Eat this: STRAWBERRIES Here’s why: They reduce inflammation in the arteries and increase levels of the heart-healthy vitamin folate in the blood. Did you know? Strawberries can help whiten teeth! They contain malic acid, which acts as an astringent, buffing away discoloration from notso-pearly whites. Combine a mashed strawberry with a half-tablespoon of baking soda and apply the mixture to your teeth, leaving it on for five minutes, then brushing away with toothpaste. (Just don’t do this more than once a week—you risk damaging tooth enamel.)

Stomach Drink this: GREEN TEA Here’s why: It may fight stomach cancer: A recent study found that women who drank five or more cups of green tea a day were 20 percent less likely to develop the disease. Did you know? Generally, green tea has just one-third to one-half the caffeine of black tea.

ROBIN G. LONDON 2008

Eat this: BROCCOLI Here’s why: It’s not only strong in bone-strengthening calcium, it’s also loaded with vitamin C, which is essential for the maintenance and repair of bones. A cup of broccoli boasts more than twice the recommended daily allowance of C—more than is found in an orange. Did you know? Broccoli also contains two phytonutrients that may help the body fight cancer—one by suppressing tumor-cell growth, the other by clearing the system of cancer-causing substances.

7 fat-beaters Talk about the best of both worlds: Researchers have discovered that certain foods and drinks actually help your body burn fat more efficiently—so you can nibble and whittle your middle at the same time. Here are 7 such items and their claims to fame:

ATSUSHI TOMIOKA

What: GREEN TEA Why: This soothing brew contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), one of a group of antioxidants called catechins. Research indicates that catechins increase energy expenditure and fat-burning, and may help control weight. A 2007 review of research on the subject concluded that consuming five to six cups of green tea per day does indeed have metabolic benefits. Calories per serving: 0 calories per cup

What: BLUEBERRIES Why: A recent University of Michigan study suggests that the phytochemicals in blueberries influence the genes that control how we process glucose, thereby helping our bodies store and burn fat more effectively. Calories per serving: 84 calories per cup

What: OLIVE OIL Why: Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids—a type of healthy fat recently found to help shrink the accumulation of belly fat. Opt for extravirgin, the least-processed form of the oil, which contains the most antioxidants. Calories per serving: 119 calories per tablespoon

What: OATMEAL Why: High in fiber, oatmeal helps your body burn calories by boosting your metabolism. In 2008, a Penn State University weight-loss study reported that people whose diets were rich in whole grains lost significantly more abdominal fat than those who ate only refined grains. The whole-grain group also had a big reduction in C-reactive protein levels, a heart-disease marker. Calories per serving: 159 calories per cup

What: CHILI PEPPERS Why: They get their heat from a component called capsaicin, which has been shown to suppress appetite and boost metabolism. One Dutch study reported that subjects ate fewer calories and rated themselves as more satisfied when they consumed capsaicin half an hour before each meal. Calories per serving: 19 calories for each pepper

What: AVOCADO Why: This fruit is another excellent source of abdominal fat– reducing monounsaturated fatty acids, which in a study reported in Diabetes Care were shown to curb “central body fat distribution.” Avocados also boast betasitosterol, a plant-based fat that may lower cholesterol. Calories per serving: 80 calories for 1⁄4 avocado

What: ALMONDS Why: Researchers believe that the body may not fully absorb the fat in almonds and that the cell walls of the nuts may act as a barrier against fat. Besides lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease, almonds can lessen food cravings by making you feel fuller. Calories per serving: 163 calories per ounce

Give ‘PEACEFUL’ a chance CAN’T PICTURE YOUR LIFE WITHOUT CONTINUAL STRESS? HERE’S HOW YOU CAN—AND WHY YOU SHOULD

A pressure-filled life is about as American as apple pie and Friends reruns—so much so that many of us wear our stress as a badge of honor, accepting the cranky impatience, throbbing headaches and sleepless nights as the price we pay for how in-demand our time is. But the possible long-term effects of stress (a weakened immune system, blood clots, high blood pressure and heart disease among them) are nothing to boast about—or flirt with. So in this issue’s “fresh start” spirit, we offer 6 ways to ease your troubled mind—and, in the process, do your body good.

quieting the sympathetic nervous system (responsible for our “fight-or-flight” response) and amping up the parasympathetic nervous system (which slows heart rate and breathing and improves blood flow), notes the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a division of the National Institutes of Health. The result: more day-to-day serenity. Techniques vary widely, but most involve finding a comfortable position in a quiet spot, then either focusing on your breathing or repeating a mantra. You might begin with just five minutes a day, gradually working up to 20 minutes or more. A wide variety of getstarted manuals can be found at your local bookstore.

TAKE A MEDITATION BREAK. Whether or not you’re seeking spiritual enlightenment, a few calming moments of silence can have a wonderful soothing effect. The jury’s still out on just how health-promoting meditation is, but some studies have found it reduces blood pressure, heart rate and cholesterol levels. A recent report published in the American Journal of Hypertension, for instance, found that people at risk for hypertension who practiced 20 minutes of meditation daily lowered their blood pressure significantly and reduced by 52 percent their risk of developing hypertension in the future. Experts suspect that meditation brings benefits by

SMELL THE ROSES. It’s not just their pretty petals that cause flowers to brighten your mood—their fragrance may actually calm tensed-out nerves. In Japanese research published last year, mice exposed to stress-inducing situations had lower levels of neutrophils and lymphocytes—two types of stress-related immune cells—when they sniffed linalool, a scented compound found in blooms. They also showed reduced activity in more than 100 genes linked to the stress response. With additional research, this demonstrated physiological reaction may add credence to the therapeutic claims long made by proponents of aromatherapy.

2

PUT THE KETTLE ON. You’ve probably heard that a spot of hot tea can soothe frazzled nerves—now there’s research to support the claim. British investigators (of course) divided 75 men into two groups, one of which sipped black tea daily for six weeks, while the other drank a caffeinated placebo. After this period, the men were asked to complete a stressful task. Researchers took blood samples an hour later and found that the tea drinkers had lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, indicating that they recovered from the stress more quickly than did the teafree group.

3

GET SOME EXERCISE. It’s welldocumented that physical exertion can help alleviate stress, so why not try something new? Setting a goal for yourself can help you stay motivated, and Cool Running’s “Couch to 5K” plan (go to www.c25k.com and click “Cool Running”) is a great place to start. Designed for the nonrunner, this nine-week program eases you in (you’ll do

4

no more than 60 seconds of jogging at first), but gradually gets you race-ready for a 5K competition. Those with more of a techie leaning might opt for iFitness, a $1.99 iPhone app that offers detailed instructions (in pictures, text and video) on some 230 exercises. Choose the area of the body you want to target, and pick the move you like best; design your own workouts by combining individual exercises into different routines. Just slip your phone into your gym bag and you’re ready to go! (Be sure to consult with your doctor or other healthcare professional before embarking on a new exercise program.) CHUCKLE. There’s good reason why your mood improves when you’ve been giggling over 30 Rock or scanning The Onion’s headlines. The Mayo Clinic reports that laughter has a positive impact on your stress response, leading to a more relaxed feeling. Chuckles can also stimulate your heart, lungs and muscles and even ease stomachaches, thanks to their positive effects on digestion. Personally, we love any medical advice that deems watching Animal House (Bravo’s top pick on its “100 Funniest Movies of All Time” list) time judiciously spent.

5

GO HIGH-TECH. Sure, venting on your cell phone or zoning out to your iPod might make you feel better, but what about a handheld device designed to help you chill? HeartMath’s emWave Personal Stress Reliever ($199) has a sensor that measures your stress levels based on breathing and changes in heart rhythm. The device then guides you through reducing your stress via breathing exercises and other techniques. A colorful display shows your progress as you go so you can adjust as needed. ■

On-the-clock WORKOUTS IN A TIME CRUNCH? STAR TRAINER JESSIE PAVELKA SUGGESTS 10-, 20-, 30- AND 60-MINUTE ROUTINES ON LIFETIME’S HIT REALITY SHOW

DietTribe, personal trainer Jessie Pavelka helps five real-life friends lose weight while juggling jobs, family and other struggles. It’s a premise many of us can relate to, as our own busy schedules leave little time—and motivation—for exercise. But the truth is you don’t have to set aside large chunks of time to reap the benefits of fitness: According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, exercising in shorter bursts throughout the day still does your body good. So Morris

Health & Life asked Pavelka to design workout routines of four different lengths to give you a chance to choose what works best for you. (Remember: Always check with your physician before starting an exercise routine.)

10-MINUTE WORKOUT

• Walk for 1 minute at a moderate to fast pace. • Jog or sprint for 1 minute. • Repeat this pair of steps four more times. Kick it up a notch! “If you’re in good shape, challenge yourself by increasing speed and incline,” says Pavelka.

“Even though 10 minutes isn’t a lot of time, you can still get your blood pumping and your heart rate up,” says Pavelka. “For great results, try interval training on a treadmill.”

20-MINUTE WORKOUT “Here’s a quick routine you can do on your lunch hour that helps burn fat and build muscle,” says Pavelka. “You can do these exercises practically anywhere—all you need are some dumbbells and yourself! If you’re a beginner, start off with light weights that aren’t too taxing, and feel free to take short breaks between exercises.” • DO 3 SETS OF SQUATS (15–20 REPETITIONS PER SET, PICTURED LEFT): Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Keeping your chest up, bend your knees and lower your behind as if you’re sitting in a chair. Do not let your knees jut out past your toes. Return to a standing position. Repeat. • DO 3 SETS OF PUSH-UPS (15–20 REPS/SET): Lie chestdown on the floor with your hands flat on the ground beneath your shoulders, your legs straight and your toes tucked under. Keeping your body straight, press into your hands to raise your torso and legs off the ground, then bend your elbows to lower yourself back toward the floor, stopping before your body reaches the ground. Repeat. • DO 3 SETS OF LUNGES (15–20 REPS/SET, PICTURED BOTTOM LEFT): Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Step forward with your right leg, bending your knees until both legs are at approximately 90-degree angles. Push up with your right leg to return to the starting position. Repeat with the left leg.

• DO 3 SETS OF BENT-OVER ROWS (15–20 REPS/SET): Standing with your knees slightly bent and your feet about shoulder-width apart, hold a dumbbell in each hand. Keep your arms fully extended so the dumbbells hang straight down. Bend forward at your hips so your chest is leaning over your feet. Keeping your torso stationary, bring your elbows straight back to approximately a 90-degree angle, so that the dumbbells stop at your sides. Return to start position and repeat. • DO 3 SETS OF SIDE LUNGES (15–20 REPS/SET): Stand with feet together facing forward, hands on your hips. Place your right foot out to the side, away from your body, bending your right knee as you do so. Keep your chest up and make sure that your knee does not extend past your toes. Push into your right leg to return to the starting position, then repeat with your left leg. • DO 3 SETS OF SHOULDER PRESSES (15–20 REPS/SET): Sit on a bench or chair and hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bend your elbows and raise your hands up to shoulder height so the dumbbells are positioned next to your ears. Keeping your back straight, push the dumbbells up until your arms are extended overhead. Lower the dumbbells to shoulder height. Repeat. Kick it up a notch! As you get stronger, try forgoing breaks between exercises—for example, going from squats straight into a set of push-ups, says Pavelka.

30-MINUTE WORKOUT Incorporate a mix of cardio and strength training in your half-hour routine by starting with the 10-minute workout described, and then immediately following it with the 20-minute routine, the trainer says. KICK IT UP A NOTCH! “If things start to get too easy, consider using heavier weights and increasing the number of sets and repetitions,” says Pavelka.

60-MINUTE WORKOUT “If you have time to enjoy a full hour’s workout, here’s one that I do for myself and my clients that combines intense cardio with some good resistance training,” says Pavelka. “The routine may be strenuous for some, so if you don’t get through all the exercises at first, just keep working at it.” You can take a break between circuits, he adds; just aim for each circuit to take about 10 minutes. Start with stretching and 5 to 10 minutes of walking to warm up. CIRCUIT 1: • DO 3 SETS OF SQUATS (15–20 REPETITIONS PER SET): Stand with your legs shoulder-width apart. Keeping your chest up, bend your knees and lower your behind as if you’re sitting in a chair. Do not let your knees jut out past your toes. Return to a standing position. Repeat. • DO 3 SETS OF PUSH-UPS (15–20 REPS/SET, PICTURED TOP RIGHT): Lie chest-down on the floor with your hands flat on the ground beneath your shoulders, your legs straight and your toes tucked under.

TV HAIR GURU TABATHA COFFEY WINS BRAVOS FOR HER HIP CUTS AND HER STRAIGHT-SHOOTING STYLE

32

/

FEBRUARY 2010

COURTESY OF BRAVO

AS A CHILD GROWING UP IN SURFERS Paradise, Australia, Tabatha Coffey spent much of her free time cutting her Barbies’ hair into funky coifs and styling the tresses of any friend willing to sit still long enough. She vividly recalls early trips to the beauty parlor with her mom. “I loved the smell of the salon, seeing the transformation of the people in those ‘special’ chairs and how all the women looked so happy when they left,” says the 42year-old Fort Lee resident. “From the beginning, it seemed like this was what I was meant to do.” And apparently that was true: Having run her own thriving Ridgewood-based salon, Industrie Hair Gurus, for the past eight years, the outspoken stylist recently became the star of two hit reality shows on TV’s Bravo channel, Shear Genius and Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, the latter of which recently finished up its second season. As a representative for Joico, a hair-care products company, she’s traveled the world educating other hairdressers. And as a respected beauty consultant, she is often quoted in the world’s top fashion magazines such as Marie Claire. Just how did the plucky blonde embark on a career that would take her literally across the globe? Coffey started early, for one thing: At age 14, she got her first summer job sweeping the floors of a salon in her hometown, a small suburb on Australia’s famous Gold Coast. One year later she began an apprenticeship program at The Australian Technical College–Gold Coast. The curriculum was demanding, requiring her to attend classes, sit for exams and gain practical experience by working at the nearby Stephen Pratt salon. “Fifteen was a bit young to do all that,” admits Coffey. “But it made sense, because I always knew it was the work I wanted to pursue.” After graduating, Coffey realized that to further her education she had to make a drastic move. “London was really the mecca of hairdressing, so I left Australia

when I was 19 to start training and working at the Vidal Sassoon Academy,” she says. This was a period ripe with inspiration, and Coffey credits her growth in large part to the mane masters under whom she studied. “My mentors valued the integrity of their craft,” she explains. “It’s not about coming in at nine, cutting someone’s hair and going home at five. A person can be transformed in the hands of a good hairdresser. There’s honor in that—but also great responsibility.” Coffey used her newly sharpened skills to manage a salon in London’s affluent Kensington neighborhood. “Lots of interesting people and personalities walked through that door,” she explains. “I had clients who worked at Buckingham Palace or were related to the Queen. Another time I cut the hair of a Turkish princess.” Such variety helped Coffey develop the maxim by which she still abides: There’s no such thing as a perfect cookie-cutter haircut. “Trends come and go, but they don’t fit everyone,” she says. “I want to give each person the best possible style for their face and hair type.” Eventually the bustle of London became wearisome, and Coffey decided it was time for another big change. “I had never been to America before, but I had family in New Jersey so I decided to give the move a try.” Though the adjustment was initially difficult, the stylist soon found much to love about the Garden State. “I don’t understand why New Jersey sometimes gets a bad rap!” she says, laughing. “It has incredible clothing boutiques, great doctors and fantastic restaurants.” When working at her salon she regularly orders lunch from two nearby spots, Best of Everything and Sabu Sabu Deli, and often dines at Ridgewood’s Mediterraneo Restaurant. “I love that the town is peaceful and relaxed,” says Coffey— especially now that her life has become more chaotic.

‘My top makeover tips’ PUMP UP YOUR VOLUME. “Fashion

After auditioning on a whim for the first season of Shear Genius, the pixie-like blonde quickly became famous as the show’s spunkiest contestant. Though she was eliminated after the sixth episode due to poor teamwork with Tyson, her partner for the day, America loved her candor and intensity: Coffey was voted “Fan Favorite” and awarded a $10,000 prize. A few months later Bravo called to offer an even better boon—her own spin-off series. On each episode of Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, Coffey has one week to save a failing hair parlor from destruction. Her canny business sense and impeccably chic style have yielded consistently positive results, yet the owners aren’t always appreciative of her forthright approach. “Because I’m pointing out all the things they’re doing wrong, people often get offended by what I suggest,” she says. “But I don’t have time to hold their hands or work in an overly nice manner.” One thing Coffey does always have time for is her clients. “I’m still at the salon all the time—unless I’m traveling for the show or for work, I’m there cutting hair.” Indeed, Coffey hasn’t lost the childlike wonder that first drew her to this craft. “There is magic in that final moment, when everything comes together,” she says. “You see a bit of sparkle in the customer’s eye, and you know that person really feels good. It’s incredible to realize that you helped make that happen.” ■

COOKIN’ GOOD TWO NEW JERSEY KITCHEN RENOVATIONS REFLECT VASTLY DIFFERENT STYLES— BUT YIELD EQUALLY STUNNING RESULTS

Clean scene How could a house with curb appeal and an open floor plan have a dark, cramped kitchen cut off from other living areas? Interior designers Stuart Schepps and Audrey Leigh Nevins of DSGN Interiordesign Inc. of Cedar Grove may never know, but, like their clients, they appreciated the house’s potential. 34

/

FEBRUARY 2010

To open up the space, Schepps and Nevins replaced the wall between the kitchen and the rest of the living areas with half-walls of translucent resin. An addition doubled the space to 20 by 22 feet. Best of all, peeling off the plasterboard ceiling provided the opportunity to create a dramatic partial ellipse—19 feet at its apex. The owners envisioned a clean, modern look. “But it also had to be colorful,” says the wife. “I wanted

something the color of water.” To ensure that the color would not date the kitchen, other materials are relatively neutral, including the cherry island base and the porcelain floor tiles. Even the orange-glazed lava-stone eating bar reads as neutral. “Combining colors and finishes helps to break up the space and define different areas,” explains kitchen designer Lorena Polon of Snaidero USA of Morristown.

Polon relied on the cabinetry’s horizontal thrust to pull the eye down and keep the room in scale. “Otherwise people say, ‘oh, what a big space,’ instead of, ‘oh, what a great space,’ ” she explains. Also humanizing the scale are tiny glass mosaic tiles on the arched wall, creating “jewel-like, sculptural effect,” observes the owner. —Dorrie Donnelly continued MORRIS

R u s t i c re f i n e d A 110-acre horse farm in Monmouth County is the setting for a post-and-beam house that mimics the construction of a nearly 200-year-old barn on the property. The home’s centerpiece is a grandly scaled kitchen. Natural wood dominates: Posts and beams are Douglas fir; tongue-and-groove ceiling planks are spruce. After finalizing the floor plan, the owners turned to designer Jim Dove of Canterbury Design Kitchen Interiors in Morristown, who created a 36

kitchen that he calls both “elegant and formal, yet also a family space.” Playing against the rusticity of the construction, maple cabinets received a seven-step paint finish, including sage, cream and ochre hues. After each layer was hand-applied and dried, it was sanded to reveal hints of the underlying color. Notes Dove, “Because of this, each panel has a great deal of depth.” The focus of the kitchen is a 48-inch–wide Wolf dual-fuel range topped with a wood hood surround,

complete with carved-wood details. “The backsplash of handmade ceramic tile is almost like an old-fashioned hearth,” adds Dove. While superb for entertaining, the 20- by-40-foot room could have created a challenge in terms of daily use. Dove’s solution: a work and dining island that embraces nearly every kitchen need, thanks to a secondary sink, dishwasher, Sub-Zero freezer drawers and a dining bar. The maple work side of the island was painted a warm sage, then distressed and glazed; the cherry-

wood dining side has a cayenne-pepper–color stain that was also glazed. The floor continues this tonal effect with antique French limestone in a pale terra-cotta hue. Although no style restrictions guided him, Dove calls the kitchen an example of “American Country with a slight French influence. It’s elegant, but the feel is comfortable.” ■ –Mervyn Kaufman Reprinted from Great American Kitchens with permission from Sub-Zero/Wolf. MORRIS

The 303-foot waterslide aboard the Carnival Dream

Sea the world The ships are inspiring, the destinations idyllic, the rejuvenating setting perfect for a mental “fresh start”—and yet ... after a while, the sumptuous cruises that once left us awed start to seem a bit similar. Want to shake up your serene routine? Here are three options for a seafaring voyage with a twist.

the four-deck–high, 303-foot–long, corkscrew-shaped waterslide—part of a huge WaterWorks Aqua Park. Four “scenic whirlpools” cantilever out over the sea, and the Cloud 9 Spa, at 23,750 square feet, is, we were told, the Carnival fleet’s largest and most elaborate wellness center. While kid-free sections are common on cruise ships, we liked the fact that Dream’s two-level sanctuary, dubbed “Serenity” and boasting a full bar and two whirlpools, didn’t charge us extra. Onboard trivia games and an art auction offer sun-free diversion, and the comedy club hosts six different comedy shows nightly for four nights of every seven-day cruise.

This is way more exciting than that new-car smell. Setting sail on a new vessel is a special treat for cruisegoers, and some of the new ships launched in recent months or due to debut in 2010 offer an array of eyepopping attractions. We can report, for example, that November’s U.S. debut of the 3,646-passenger Carnival Dream (1-800CARNIVAL, www.carnival.com) was great fun. The largest this cruise line has ever built, the ship is encircled by a half-mile, open-air promenade deck with lanai seating, and at night a large circular dance floor’s jumping. Fun abounds on the two-deck miniature golf course and

Young ones will delight in Camp Carnival, a 5,000-square-foot fun zone with areas for three different age groups, starting at age 2. Tweens can cut loose in Circle C— a special area for 12- to 14-year-olds with a video jukebox, a DJ, a dance floor and Internet stations. Older teens, meanwhile, can chill out in Club 02—with its soda bar, music-listening stations and a state-of-theart sound and lighting system—then hit the arcade next door or unwind with the special youth spa program. We enjoyed movies at the outdoor Seaside Theatre with an LED screen and a 70,000-watt sound system (you can watch from poolside, or from the pool itself). And 15-minute outdoor laser shows created dazzling blue, green and red light effects set to the music of Styx, Rush, Van Halen, Boston and Pink Floyd. “Your Choice Dining” is a new option being rolled out fleetwide. In addition to early and late assigned seating, passengers can opt into “Your Time” open seating from 5:45 to 9:30 p.m. And as for the food on this cruise—the mouthwatering Wasabi sushi bar; the to-die-for muffins at the Ocean Plaza café; the Mongolian Wok ... well, don’t get us started. Year-round, the Dream departs from Port Canaveral, Florida, alternating between seven-day cruises to the eastern Caribbean (Nassau, St. Thomas,

Exceptional Vision—Even for Those Just Using Just Reading Glasses Over the past 20 years, Richard Norden, M.D. FACS, has established an unparalleled reputation in the metropolitan area. He was the first in New Jersey to perform and trademark Custom LASIK, a vision-correction procedure that recognizes that each patient has different visual needs. He uses the Eye Q laser, the fastest in the world, making the procedure extremely easy and painless. It takes less than 10 minutes and patients can return to work the very next day. “LASIK corrects all types of prescriptions, including those for astigmatism and reading glasses, and can transform people’s lives,” notes Dr. Norden. “It is also less expensive than wearing glasses and contact lenses.”

Top-of-the-Line Cosmetic Care A nationally recognized American Medical Educators Training instructor and Castle and Connolly ‘Top Doctor’ for more than 10 years, Laurene DiPasquale, M.D., couples her extraordinary talent in the field of nonplastic cosmetics with the latest technology. An example of this is the use of Isolaz, a machine that uses vacuum and broadband light to destroy acne-causing bacteria. So effective is this technique that many patients see results in the first 24 to 48 hours following their first treatment. Dr. DiPasquale performs all procedures personally and offers an array of leading-edge cosmetic options, including laser hair and spider-vein removal, dermal fillers and Botox.®

Glorious FOOD

Be sushi-savvy! It’s got to be healthy, right? A little bit of fish, a tiny smattering of rice, all rolled up in some seaweed—what could go wrong? In fact, sushi can be one of the healthiest dining-out options there is, nonfattening yet rich in heart-protective omega-3 fatty acids. But as the once-exotic Japanese food has become ubiquitous in the U.S., new varieties have been developed—some with ingredients that have nutrition gurus crying foul. These days, sushi’s calorie count varies widely, with some choices decidedly diet-unfriendly. Here’s a quick primer: FAST FACT 1 tablespoon of soy sauce provides more than one-third of your daily requirement of sodium.

tomatoes. Given the choice, our fork generally gravitates toward fried seafood over a plateful of greens, but not this evening. We couldn’t resist the cream of pumpkin soup special—a luscious delight. The golden bisque, as thick and speckled as Dijon mustard, was sweet enough to make for a pleasing dessert, but a sprinkling of sharp cheddar added a satisfyingly savory tang. The pork osso bucco—a healthy shank braised until the meat was falling off the bones— was tender but a bit bland. This was easily remedied by swiping each forkful through the hearty, stew-like sauce of tomato and small cubed carrots. The dish was served with a side of nicely crisp zucchini slices cooked in a fair deal of butter and a somewhat out-of-place mashed-potato cake with a mozzarella stick–like coating. Our pasta dish, goat cheese ravioli, was a bit of an enigma. Rather than the promised pine nuts and asparagus in garlic and oil, the pasta pillows were topped with walnuts, mushrooms and WITH ITS RUSTIC SEPIA TONES, DARK WOOD a thick française sauce.

NEVER BE WITHOUT TEETH, INCLUDING IMPLANTS Patients travel from around the country to Denville, in search of the perfect smile. Denville is famous for its medical community. So, it’s no surprise that a perfect smile is a must have item in this friendly town. Hand crafting those smiles is the life work of Dr. Steiner and Dr. Fine. Our office’s reputation has spread so far that we now treat patients from around the world; often doing more smile makeovers in a single month that some dentists do in a lifetime. We also offer an amazing alternative for those living with missing teeth. This dramatic advancement in the field of dental implantology now makes it possible for many patients to switch from dentures to permanent implant supported teeth in only a few hours. This new approach can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire mouth. Patients leave the office after just one appointment with a beautiful and strong smile. Discomfort is so minimal that most patients eat a light meal that evening. Upon entering our front door you will immediately know that this is no ordinary dental office, because that’s what most people say upon seeing it for the first time. Among our practice’s notable patients are actresses, actors, astronauts, models and TV personalities. However most of the doctor’s patients are everyday people who just want to look their best. Drs. Steiner, Fine and Kwiatkowski have focused their practice on those areas about which they are highly passionate. (After all you wouldn’t ask your family doctor to do heart surgery.) Those areas are Cosmetic Dentistry. Trained at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for advanced dental studies, they have devoted over fifty combined years to perfecting their skills and have placed over 23,000 cosmetic restorations. Our main focus is on cosmetic and full mouth reconstruction cases. This includes Implant Dentistry and Neuromuscular Orthodontics, which can avoid unecessary removal of teeth. Many people do not realize that dental problems may be the cause of headaches, shoulder, back and neck pain, noisy jaw joints and pains in the TMJ. Drs. Steiner, Fine and Kwiatkowski pride themselves in having Morris County’s premier head, neck and jaw pain relief center. Our office also offers a “limited warranty” that provides free repair or replacement of restorative dental work, when a patient’s regular hygiene visits are maintained. This kind of security could only be offered by truly World Class Dentists. This is why our motto is: “Experienced professionals make the difference.”
