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.

Everything For a Purpose, a Focus

In an attempt to drink more water, other then that which I drink in my coffee, I have this.  It's a two liter water bottle that I'm going to fill up every day, toss in some lemons, and try to chug back.  Plan is to up it to drinking TWO of these a day.
Speaking of coffee.... coffee time with my girl, Ginger Spice.
Tried out a new cardio exercise idea I got from someone who's well educated in kicking people's butts and does so on a professional level and regular bases -- a manager at a downtown Goodlife.
He had told me to set the treadmill at its highest incline and then walk on it for 30 minutes without holding onto the side bars.  So that's exactly what I did today and boy was my heart pumping.
Was pumped to see my boy, Porkchop, on a treadmill by me, also pushing away at the cardio.  Sorry for the blurry pic but this was a shot I snapped while going up hill.
Today I boxed, did extra cardio, then hit the weights, and was all done by 7:30pm.
Walked out of System super sweaty but feeling pretty good and surrounded by some of my gym cuties who had also smashed their workouts.
