Week 6: Mantra Magic
Keeping a positive and strong mind empowers your fitness journey. We always need that extra push when we’re getting into shape. Don’t give up and give in to your frustration and pain. At this point, you should be doing at least 15 squats, 15 push-ups, 15 lunges and 35 minutes on the treadmill as part of your daily exercise regime.
Week 7: Heavy Lifting
Who says weights are only for ripped bodybuilders? Lifting a pair of dumb-bells can do wonders for body balance, and if you want leaner and slender thighs and legs, you should embrace dumb-bell squats.
Week 8: Zip up!
If the dress fits you like a glove, congrats! Your discipline and determination paid off. Now sashay in style! If it doesn’t, don’t feel defeated. Keep at it until you get that party-perfect body you deserve. You’ve still got two more weeks to go!
Week 9: Boom Shaka Laka
Sweat it out with even more cardio exercise! Tired of the treadmill? Just blast your speakers (make sure the neighbours aren’t home) and jump around like you just don’t care!

Week 10: Eggs-cellent Nutrition
At this point, your diet is as important as ever. Eggs are a good source of protein, and you need a lot of that stuff for sustained energy and muscle-building. At breakfast, eat a soft-boiled egg with salt and pepper to taste or scrambled ones on wholesome toasts. If you don’t fancy eggs, sardines and mackerel make good replacements.
