Toning Tips for That Special Dress

So you've got the perfect dress... now get the perfect body! Following these simple exercises will firm and tone the body part that your dress will be showing off on prom night.

Toning Tips - Arms and Shoulders

If you suffer from jiggly arms but want to wear a strapless dress, these exercises will buff and tone you up. When doing each exercise, remember to keep your legs slightly bent and your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Bicep Curls - Hold a pair of five-pound dumbbells with arms at sides, palms facing inward. Slowly raise and lower the dumbbells 10 times (one set). Do three to five sets.
  • Tricep Kick-Backs - Keeping your back straight, bend over at the waist while holding dumbbells, palms facing forward. Slowly bring elbows up and extend arms back as high as you can. Repeat 10 times. Do three to five sets.
  • Toning Tips - Legs and Butt

    Want lean legs fast? Do these easy exercises to firm up your legs, thighs and butt so you can step out in that short, sassy dress!
  • Lunges - Stand with hands on hips, legs hip-width apart. Take a big step forward with your right leg until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Step back into starting position and then lunge out with your left leg. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.
  • Calf Raises - Stand with feet narrower than shoulder-width apart and toes pointing straight. Push up onto your toes so your heels are raised. Squeeze your calf muscles and then lower your heels slowly. Repeat 10 times, doing three to five sets.
  • Toning Tips - Back

    Girls who plan to wear a sexy backless dress must be ready to show off a muscular back, as well as smooth skin and good posture.
  • Back Rows - Bend at waist with knees slightly bent and feet shoulder-width apart. Let your arms hang while holding a pair of dumbbells, palms facing inward. Raise your right elbow, then lower it as you raise your left elbow. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.
  • Back Lifts - Lie stretched out on your stomach with palms resting on the floor near your shoulders. Without using your hands, lift your head and chest up off the floor as high as you can. Hold for 10 seconds and then slowly lower yourself back down. Repeat 10 times, and do three to five sets.

    Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

    When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

    I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

I can't talk to parents. They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
