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.

Another Week to Kill It

Moved my pretty flowers from my bedroom to the kitchen table so my roommate could enjoy them and so I could kick off the new week as such -- a loaded breakfast, a tall coffee and a reminder than life is beautiful.
Talking about reminders, Balboa is always reminding me to slow down or at least take a breather.
 Took an afternoon breather with Balboa and then raced off for training.
 Getting in some weighted crunches.
 Nothing like a good sweat to really challenge yourself and start your week off right.
