Firm-up challenge, day 13 and Instagram!

firm up fitness challenge

I started a new Instagram account just for LaSlimFemme. (Please let me know your Instagram username or link below and I’ll follow you!)

I’ve been posting pics of food I’m eating – recipes from TrimHealthyMama cookbook as well as my own creations, like this one:

Blueberry Fool – THM “S”, gluten-free, sugar-free, low-carb


So easy and quick, as well as refreshing and delicious. With 7 kids, homeschool, two blogs to run… I don’t always want to take time to make a fancy, time-consuming dessert. This one took two minutes to throw together.

You’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
  • your favorite stevia-based sweetener, to taste

Whip the cream in a large bowl with the sweetener until stiff. Fold in blueberries gently. If using frozen berries, put the Blueberry Fool into the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes until the blueberries have thawed. Enjoy!

(I don’t like my desserts super sweet, so I only used 2 tsp. Super Sweet in this recipe, but definitely tweak it to your liking.)

Note: Since you can have up to a half cup of blueberries in “S” fuel mode, a 3/4 cup portion size is about right. You could also “trim” this out a bit and reduce the calorie load by mixing a 1/2 cup portion with 1/4 cup plain 0% Greek yogurt and a touch more sweetener.

Now for my movement challenge: Today I walked a mile and did 30 squats with 40 pounds of weight.
