Just in time for those struggling to keep their New Year's resolutions, author Carolyn Barnes will discuss and sign her new book The cLEAN Momma Workout: Get Lean While You Clean on Wednesday, January 30 at 7 PM at Barnes & Noble Thousand Oaks.
A few years ago, author Barnes felt that she had hit bottom. The recession had hit her family hard, her marriage was crumbling, and the former professional dancer was 60 pounds overweight. Accustomed to life with housekeepers and nannies, Barnes had no household skills to fall back on when her husband lost his job and the family could no longer afford household help. Her epiphany came when she "felt the burn" while cleaning up after her baby son, and she realized that she could get lean while she cleaned. And the cLEAN Momma Workout was born!
But Barnes' cLEAN Momma program is much more than just an exercise and weight-loss program. The author combines techniques of dance, basic isometrics, and cardio with a healthy mind-set and smart eating habits to encourage readers to calm their inner chaos and take control of their lives, no matter how busy or stressful their days may be. By changing habits a little at a time and working exercise routines into everyday activities, readers can multitask their way to a happier and healthier life - and a cleaner house!
Local resident Carolyn Barnes is a mother of two, a certified life coach, and a certified Pilates instructor.
