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.

I Wonder if the Gym Misses Me Like I Miss It on Rest Days

 
Man, sorry Arnold but I absolutely hate, hate, HATE rest days!!!
Headed to the library to do some work on their computers and to study but was pleasantly
distracted by a random little bird who had snuck into the building.
This used to be what I came home to, 3 beautiful four-legged friends, but now only 1 four-legged boy greets me.  I'm super blessed to have him here, don't get me wrong, but I miss Pacquiao and Pyen Chi every single day.
 I absolutely love having Balboa here with me in Canada.  He's a little piece of home for me. 
 Today I treated him to some new threads and made him look a little more bas a$$.
He got a red leather collar with silver metal stars on it and a "Good dog gone bad" t-shirt.
