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.

Did it, Done that, Not Doing it Again... Saturday, April 16

I have a confession to make, last night I had a drink.

Correction...a couple of drinks.

And anyone that knows me knows just one drink is more than enough for my system to go haywire so a couple is....ya, yikes.  I can't say I really felt it last night, I was overly self conscious of it, but I did feel it this morning.  Waking up today was rough and I was left nursing myself back to normality and regretting every single sip last night of Grand Mariner.  But, wurprisingly enough, with a belly of only two mini pitas with natural peanut butter and banana squished onto them, I did managed to show up for weight training at System today.  I showed up super late, only an hour and a half left till closing, but nonetheless I did show up.

I trained shoulder, chest and triceps.
