As the story has it, I woke up and found myself on the very opposite side of the globe – the flipside. I arrived February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d simply do a year, then leave. Years later and I’m still here. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company, Flipside Fitness, and CEO of my own boxing club, Korea's largest -- Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada but only to pack up my bags and venture out again. Now I'm living in Makati, Philippines. Life for me is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This isn't a new chapter in the book of my life though, it's a whole new book I've started!!! I'm a whole new woman. I left Korea with Flipside Fitness on my brain, Hulk's in my heart, boxing in my bag, and my four-legged friend Balboa Button by my side.

Life is an adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Back to Busy... Tuesday, April 26

Today's Schedule:
9:30am -- Chiropractor appointment with Dr. Merrill
11am -- Appointment with Korean translator 
2pm -- Boxing with Coach Perez at Hardknocks Boxing
6pm -- Coffee with Ginger Spice (a pre-training caffiene fix)
7pm -- Weight training and heavy bag work at System Fitness
11pm -- Conference business phone call with Korea

Got the thumbs up from Dr. Merrill today after he checked me out in his office.  "Your body is feeling so much better", he said, a comment that I couldn't help but giggle over. Only can a chiropractor get away with saying such a comment instead of coming across sleazy.  

At System tonight I trained a bit with the Porkchop; we did legs.  Coach Perez tells me not to train legs, he tells me not to even do weight training actually but I love it so much!  Ginger Spice joined me for a bit on legs too actually.  I did walking lunges with the Porkchop and then introduced my girl Ginger Spice to the wonderful world of Bulgarian split squats.  Her butt is going to be hurting for days, I just know it.

How come you don't listen to your coach? Isn't he giving you advice on how to better your game? Just curious...
