Fiber One 80 Calories Cereal review and giveaway

We're big cereal eaters in my house -- that happens when you have a 4-year old -- and I like to try new cereals now and then. There's only so many Cheerios one can eat in one's life, after all.

I was interested in the new Fiber One 80 calories cereal that I was invited to try. I tried the Honey Squares and they were quite good! I liked that the cereal is low in calories and sugar and high in fiber, so it is pretty filling. I also like that my son enjoyed eating it -- always a good thing!

I was sent a full prize pack along with the cereal, including a pedometer and a cute orange cell phone armband. 

I have to say, the armband is great. It's not too large and it holds my cell phone perfectly so I don't have to carry it in my hand when I go on my long runs. I'm all about safety so I like to take my phone with me on long runs but it can be a drag to carry it in my hand. So, the armband is perfect!

Find free fitness classes.

I just learned about this new web site, Free Fitness Workout, that offers free passes to try out fitness centers and classes all over the country. All you have to do is find a workout (you search by state), pick your offer, and then print out a voucher. Bring the voucher with you to the fitness center and get your free workout!

Although there aren't any free offers near me, yet, I think it looks really cool.

If you end up checking it out and getting a free class, let me know! I'd love to hear how it works out for you.
