Check out the look of determination we spotted on the pop princess' face last night, both at the gym and, shortly afterwards, at a recording studio in Burbank. Way to go, Brit - with drive like that, nothing's gonna stop you from mounting the biggest comeback ever!

(Our photographers tell us that Britney had some company throughout her intensive evening - her mother! The guys spotted Britney and Lynne together several times at both the gym and the studio. How sweet of Brit to keep her mother company during such a harsh day!)
