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.

Bouncing Back from a Sad Moment Morning

 
Decided to treat myself to some professional lines at Onyx.
I've been getting my friends to clean up my shaved head but today I decided I deserved a treat and so I headed over to see the pro stars.
And who should I run into while waiting for my name to be called by the barber, one of my sweet friends -- the prettiest of pretty guys I know, Palmer.  Unlike most of my friends, he's only seen me dressed up because whenever we run into each other it's at Everleigh.  Today was the first time he's seen me in sweats.
New scratches... this my friends is how the professionals do it!!!
Now to teach my buddies so they can do this next time.
 On Wednesday I posted a picture on our Team Blue secret Facebook page.  It was our team manager pointing at the time because it was coming up to training time and none of our fighters had arrived yet.  Today they showed up super early and thought it cute to post a similar pic.  I showed up five minutes later and was so super shocked at just how early they had come.
You know you love coffee when even your fighters bring you coffee-related gifts.
Tonight one of the girls brought me a body scrub she had made for me.  It's made out of coffee.  I jokingly asked her if I could eat it, she said no, but I can almost promise you I'll take a lick of it in the shower when I'm using it.
