As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d 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, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada 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. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at now, living in the land of the happy people.

The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love.

Life is an amazing 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.
