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.

Freedom is Mine... Saturday, August

Tonight called for a celebration.  I had landed a new coaching job this week -- a job that could possibly lead to so much more for me.  I start next week, training that is, so this weekend could quite possibly be my last free weekend.

No roommate around.
No roommate's house guests around.
No roommate's house guests with house guests around.
And nothing really to do but bask in the fact that freedom was mine this weekend. Nice.

The weekend was mine and the apartment was all mine too.  Double nice.

And what did I do, I went out tonight with a gal pal and then slept over at another gal pal's house.  I enjoyed the freedom of my weekend but not the freedom of my empty apartment.
