Strong, Safe & Sexy Valentine’s Day Giveaway

I’m doing another HUGE giveaway! I love Valentine’s Day because I love LOVE and I love chocolate. So, I’ve teamed up with my favorite chocolatier, Lake Champlain Chocolates.

I am also balancing out the tasty treats with some other goodies and altogether this is a Strong, Safe & Sexy Valentine’s Day Giveaway!


The Hear Me Roar book is a guidebook to keep your mind strong as you venture out on your own. With self confidence exercises and safety tips for dating and beyond this book keeps you not just strong, but safe too!  I am the co-author, so I may be biased, so I’ve included a review from a reader on Amazon below:

Parents, make this your #1 Stocking Stuffer gift for your beloved high school or college student. This is the perfect book for all college aged women, packed full of empowering words, self-defense moves, social awareness advise, smart social media tips and even chocolate pudding recipes! It’s like a Ninja Handbook for your daughters!!

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 7.41.39 PMThis personal alarm from Sabre is a must have. Add it to your keyring, and carry your keys when you are heading out on the town, in a parking garage, out for a run, or anytime that you are alone and feeling unsafe. If needed, you pull the pin and an alarm will sound up to 300 feet, hopefully scaring off your attacker or getting the attention of someone nearby to help.






Chocolate? Yes dark chocolate is a safe treat to have even if you are on a weight loss journey. The darker the better to get more antioxidants into your body, with less of the sugar. So, I chose two awesome products for the giveaway:

Screen Shot 2016-02-02 at 7.33.09 PMThe Dark Chocolate Library, so you are stocked up on dark chocolate for a few months! Having a square or two a day will still keep you on track and satisfy your cravings. The bars range from 54 to 72% cacao and are all different flavors.

Why is Lake Champlain my favorite? They use fair trade certified chocolate, no-GMOs, no preservatives, local dairy from a 5th generation Vermont farm, local butter from Vermont Creamery and they are DELICIOUS. When I splurge I always try to go for the highest quality ingredients.

  • Maggie says:

    What would you recommend as a beginner martial arts class for me? I’m a beginner in fitness and I am in my late 20s. Thank you!!!

    • Jennifer says:

      HI Maggie – it just depends on what is available in the area that you live. Check out the different studios and most will offer trial weeks/classes. I recommend trying a few out before choosing. You may want to avoid MMA gyms as a beginner and think more Tae Kwon Do. Good luck!

  • Vanessa Gonzalez says:

    Hi Jennifer, I first saw you in the show my drift is better than you’d and thought, that is exactly what I needed. I’ve always wanted to try something new and made me strong not just physically but mentally. When I saw Taj give up like that I was so disappointed and just wanted to tell her that there’s more to life than always being negative. I desperately wished I was her in that moment because I would of loved to have you as my trainer. I currently overweight after having my baby girl and started doing cross fit. It wasn’t easy at all but I kept pushing myself at 5am in the morning I would workout and work my ass off everytime. There were times where I wanted to give up but my mind was so strong that once I told myself I can do this, it’s like a switch went off and got stronger. I lost 30 lbs in about 4 months. I still need to lose around 60lbs but I just wish I had you as a trainer. Anything coming from you would be a huge inspiration. Thanks for hearing me out. I look forward to reading your book regardless of the giveaway! ?

    • Jennifer says:

      Vanessa – You are an inspiration! thank you for reaching out and your sweet comments. Keep going! You will accomplish your goals for that baby girl of yours! Sorry you didn’t win this giveaway but keep in touch!

  • Jessica says:

    This would be a great way to keep me on track, learn how to be strong in my own body, mind, and soul, to keep me safe when I’m walking at night to my car after class, and because I would love to find a chocolate and cocoa that is tasty and healthy.

  • Chocolate and personal safety is the perfect winning combination. Plus I would share all these goodies with my friends!

  • Miranda says:

    I saw you on my diet is better than yours. I would love this as I am working on loving myself! My biggest fear is being thin and unable to protect myself from predators. It’s time though I want to be better for my children I want them to see me strong! I am working bettering myself!

  • Britnee says:

    I would love to win this prize pack to sooth my sweet tooth and maybe just maybe share with my valentine.

  • Brittany says:

    I am pregnant and after baby, I need to get motivated and stay positive to lose the weight. I could really use this gift pack to help start me off in the right direction!

  • Tara says:

    I would love to win this prize pack I want to lean to protect myself and teach my daughter’s how to learn to protect themselves too when they are older.

  • Lauren says:

    I would love to win this prize pack because I fell in love with your program and mentality on “My Diet is Better Than Yours.” I was so gutted that you didn’t get more air time so I could soak in more learning from your ways. I’m currently in grad school and I work in a more urban community. I have two factors working against my strong and safe adjectives. I would love to win this prize pack to supplement my interest in changing my lifestyle to include strong, safe, and sexy all the time.

    • Jennifer says:

      Lauren – so sorry you didn’t win this time. But keep trying when I post more contests. You deserve to be safe! and strong and sexy 🙂

  • Lynda says:

    Once again, you are just AMAZING!!!!
    and inspirational! As you said, I stopped “trying” and am “doing”!! Hopefully the scale will catch up with my efforts! Thank you for being who you are and touching my life!!!!! And HAPPY ❤️ DAY!!

  • latanya says:

    I want to win because I love chocolate and sometimes after crazy and stressful days, I would love to just enjoy some nice chocolate.

  • Danielle says:

    I would love to win because it would give me even more motivation to lose weight. I’m getting married August 13th and still haven’t tried on wedding dresses even though my mom is driving me nuts about going. I don’t feel confident enough to try on wedding dresses in front of people. I want to lose more weight. I really don’t want to hear, “You have such a pretty face!” anymore. There is more to me than just my face! I have a whole body!! I’ve lost fifteen pounds so far but I can feel myself slowly falling off track. I want to get healthy for me, my future husband, and our future family!

  • Jordan D. says:

    I’d love to win this prize pack to motivate me to stay on track and find alternatives for high sugar treats with the dark chocolate and unsweetened cocoa (hello, homemade hot chocolate!!!).

  • Trish estle says:

    I love watching the show your diet is better than mine and would love to be on one of the shows but it doesnt look like i will be doing that soooo i think winnimg this prize would help me in my journey of losing weight and gaining that self awareness that i do matter.knowing it came from you would really help when i see it everyday and read the book.i really admire you and what you do and i pray i get to meet you one day.

  • Anna Pry says:

    because i love me some cocoa and i want to feel safer walking alone in our town

  • Ashley says:

    I would love to win because I love chocolate! And the alarm keyring I think would come in handy in case anything should happen

  • valerie sobus says:

    what an amazing giveaway! i of course love the chocolate parts of it (and i use cocoa powder every. single. day. and go through it very quickly so i’d be pumped to try this fair trade kind!) but i love the hear me roar book — i think internal strength and confidence is just as important (if not more important) than external things , which valentines day usually focuses on. 😛

  • Melissa R says:

    I’d love to win because I can certainly use some empowerment and safety in my life. And of course, who doesn’t need chocolate? Security and happiness are a good combination.

  • Susan Christy says:

    I love everything about this post! What better library to go to every day than a chocolate library!?! The local ingredients used makes me happy too. The personal alarm would help me feel better about going out alone at night.

  • Lauren says:

    Keeping safe and enjoying some chocolate are both important to me!

  • Evie says:

    This is a great giveaway! I look forward to reading your book! The personal alarm is an awesome way to stay safe and you can never go wrong with chocolate! I can’t wait to try the vegan hot chocolate 🙂
    Thank you for all your tips, your program, and for being your awesome self!

  • Sarah says:

    I would love this Valentine’s giveaway! I love the Personal Alarm. I run often and it looks to be small and easy to run with! I also teach high school students and from the review of the book, the girls i work with can definitely benefit! And then, who doesn’t love chocolate?!?! My husband isn’t one to know of good quality chocolate, also it would be nice to have some good quality chocolate to reach for!

  • Kim Hawkins says:

    Love you and your message. What woman doesn’t need to feel strong, safe and sexy every day?!?! Thank you for sharing your lessons with us.

  • Evelyn says:

    I would like to win for 1) chocolate!! and 2) the personal alarm. Like a lot of us, I first heard of you on My Diet Is Better Than Yours; and also like most of us thought you contestant was an ass! You whole philosophy resonates with me; and I am now following your blog.

    BTW…I probably would have had a few more colorful words for your contestant. 🙂

  • Annie says:

    Where do I start? Lake Champlain chocolate is one of the best chocolates in the world, and I am an expert. Their truffles have an amazing texture in the center – almost whipped, but still rich and decadent. I’ve tried nearly everything they offer, and it’s always been fabulous!

    This is the PERFECT gift for me…I love chocolate and I love sharing!

    Good luck to all!

  • Danielle T says:

    i love the personal safety alarm! i think thats a great idea!

  • Vera K says:

    I think this is a great gift for any woman. I am especially interested in reading Hear Me Roar.

  • Christine says:

    I’m currently getting my master’s degree in Entrepreneurship while also studying to become a personal trainer, but through discovering your blog I have also become very interested in enrolling to become a health coach after my graduation in the winter. Many of my friends come to me for fitness and health advice and I would love additional resources to educate myself, my friends and my future clients. What could be better than additional resources and chocolate! You are truly my inspiration and have helped put me on what I think is the right track for my future. I hope to be able to open a gym one and continue to empower people through fitness.

    • Jennifer says:

      Hi Christine! That sounds amazing! You are a busy woman! If you ever want to talk about Institute for Integrative Nutrition for health coaching, let me know. I’m an ambassador for the school and can sometimes offer discounts on tuition. Best of luck to you!

  • Debbie says:

    I have been thru a lot in last several years. As well I have also had 2 back surgeries and 2 neck surgeries. With all this I have put on to much weight. I really enjoyed watching the show and you were one of them that I enjoyed. I was so disappointed when she quit. There would be so many others out there that would have loved to have that chance. I am looking for that right diet, life style change that will work for me. I am very impressed by you and your motivation. Keep it up.

  • Christina says:

    I love chocolate!
