She confessed she was hoping to lose weight in a video posted earlier in July.

But Britney Spears looked fit and happy in a video of herself working out that she shared to Instagram on Friday.

The clip was scored to her own cover version of Suzanne Vega’s hit song Tom’s Diner.

Britney was dressed simply in a hot pink sports bra that showed off her flat tummy.

The pop star also had on a pair of plain black sweat pants and crimson trainers.

Her lustrous golden locks were gracefully waved and whipped about as she worked up a sweat.

The clip opens with Britney bending side to side and extending her arms to get a good stretch in.

She was also shown lifting dumbbells behind her head and building up her biceps by pulling on harnessed weights. 

The clip was scored with perfect workout music, Britney’s own cover of a remix of Suzanne Vega’s 1984 track Tom’s Diner.

‘This song came out when I was 6 years old …. I was listening to it one day in my car, and called my manager and said hey this song is cool … so I recorded it,’ Britney captioned her video.

‘But forgot until my phone pulled it up the other day and I was like, d*mn forgot about that. Either way, great song !!!’

The Toxic singer’s version had her giving her sultriest croon over the dance track.

Vega’s original track, first released in 1984 before ending up on her album Solitude Standing in 1987, was completely a capella.

A 1988 remix by DNA took her wordless ‘Da da da duh, doo da-doo doo’ outro and made it the focus of the song, which was endorsed by the singer and rose to number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and number two on the UK charts.

Britney’s version of the song was recorded at least by 2015, when it appeared on an album by dance music and synthesizer pioneer Giorgio Moroder, who is credited with all of the music. 

In a 2015 interview with Rolling Stone, Moroder revealed the unorthodox way the track came about.

‘Britney came to my management company with the idea to do a particular song with me, which was interesting because usually it’s the other way, with the producer offering a song,’ he said. 

Prior to the song’s release, he could only say ‘it’s a song which came out about 30 years ago as an a cappella, just a voice.’

The newly rediscovered tune seems to be giving the Piece Of Me singer plenty of motivation for fitness.

Earlier this month she shared a video with her 22.3 million Instagram followers in which she complained of having ‘weak eyes and stress and asthma and headaches.’

Britney posted a food chart, which she said had been helping her lose weight and address those various ailments.

Although there’s little empirical evidence that those fruit and vegetable combinations treat the ailments listed, adding more plant-based foods into one’s diet is usually a healthy choice.

It certainly seems to be working out well for her fit figure.
