We are now over halfway through our #HELLOFIT challenge created by celebrity trainer and trainer for the interactive virtual fitness platform Myflexifit ,Jane Wake, and if you've been sticking to the plan, hopefully you'll be feeling fitter and already noticing that your clothes fit better. For week three, the Pilates Flow workout will become more advanced. Try alternating it with your Barefoot Workout, or if you have time do both in one day, one in the morning and the other in the evening.
Each week at 7.30pm on a Monday night we will live broadcast a workout for you to follow on HELLO!'s Facebook page. Follow these workouts as described below. Make sure you work at a level that's suitable to you and heed all of the safety advice. You will also find below Jane's eating tips. Good luck, and keep us updated with your progress using the hashtag #HELLOFIT - we want photos, comments and words of encouragement!

Don't forget to implement Jane's nutrition tips, too, including stopping snacking. This can be difficult around Christmas but well worth it to see results. Jane says: "We don't need them – especially when you are eating three meals a day. Snacking was something invented in the 20th century to encourage us to buy confectionary – the snacking culture is so bad for us and it has to stop!
"Have a think about it... maybe you only ever eat one main meal a day and snack the rest of the time? In which case change your snack into a proper meal but eat a really healthy small meal instead that is balanced according to all of these tips. The only exception to this rule is if you are about to workout yet your last meal was a long time ago, maybe the night before or four-five hours ago at lunch time, then you can have a snack. Go for something that includes carbs and protein, such as a banana with a handful of nuts, a protein bar or a smoothie."
