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.

Strange is the New Normal... Tuesday, July 26

Yesterday I received my second marriage proposal by a fan and today I got approached about being an egg donor.  An egg donor, as in would I be interested in selling the eggs in my body so somebody can make another somebody.

Stranger things have happened.... Right?!

Yes.

After doing my first set of 20 laps at the pool, I lifted myself out of the water and headed towards the bathroom.  Everyone watched as I walked by and into the bathroom.  I did my thing, then exited and noticed all the eyes on me. "Hey it's 2016 the life guard said".  Turns out I had just used the guy's bathroom, classy.

Yes, stranger things continue to happen...

Puked during weight training after a meal I knew was too much for me to digest proved me correct.  I was doing abs when it happened.  Abs on a full, bloated tummy, like that's not a perfect recipe for disaster.  Any more disastrous and I would have been doing burpees.

Yes, stranger things have happened and the strange and stranger always seems to happen to me.  That apparently is the story of my new life here in Canada...as if my life in Korea wasn't strange enough that is.
