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.

A New Week with New Goals... Monday, October 31

Well today was a brutally busy one.  I went from coaching my Flipside Fitness boot camp in High Park to working on my business stuff at the Toronto Reference Library downtown, busting a sweat at System Fitness in Bloor West Village, and then ending off the long day with coaching Team Blue out in the east side of the city at Clancy's Boxing.

And now you know why I actually have an espresso break scheduled into my weekly schedule.

And now you know why when I have some down time I like to chillax at home with Balboa.

Side note here, Balboa is such a good little doggie for me.  He's super low maintanence and despite leaving him home alone and checking in with him every few hours, he still continues to greet me at the door as if I'm the best thing that's ever happened to him.  Ironically enough, he's one of the best things that's happened to me in Canada, me fighting to get him to Canada that is.  No one will really understand what it means to have a little piece of my life in Korea here with me in Canada.
