As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

An Oversized Pepper and Some Loud Pants

 I'm the girl that pulls out a pepper and eats it, true.
Pull out a chocolate bar and no one bats an eyelash.
Pull out a pepper and everyone giggles and wants to snap your pic.
 And yes, I'm the girl who takes the train home late at night, covered in sweat.
It's called earning my shower... being gym nasty happy... also known as training hard.
On days when I need a little extra boost with my training, I wear my zebra pants.
They make me feel like I'm really a beast in training... hahaha.

Now sitting on a late night train after training and seeing a bag with Seoul written on it, not sure exactly on what that did to my post training, exercise high, but it left me feeling a bit on the silly side.  Signs of Korea here in Toronto hit me differently every time.
