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.

Cuddles, Hugs and an Overdose of Sweetness

 Today's mid day pause was thanks to Balboa.  Sometimes I feel like I'm go, go, go, but then I come home to my little four-legged man and am forced to take a pause.  I think all my coming and going exhausts him so he jumps on my lap, crashes, and I don't have the heart to wake him.  It's a much needed little pause in the craziness of my day though.
 Posted flyers around downtown today and laugh as you may but this one handed stapler is awesome.  Nothing like punching the hell out of a bulletin board with this stapler as I post my flyers.  
 I have no idea who this cute, jolly man is, seriously.
I walked into Dairy Queen tonight and he asked to take a picture with me so I told him I would but only if he allowed me to "woman-handle" him for my camera.  God bless Toronto, seriously.  I've never met so many friendly people in my life.  I don't know how anyone could ever feel sad in this city when you can simply walk into your local Diary Queen and hug the dude standing in front of you in line... hahaha.
 Dairy Queen salted caramel blizzard.. it's oozing with fabulousness!!!
 The Captain got a funnel cake.  I vouched only at Canada's Wonderland are funnel cakes to be ordered but he like it... and I liked helping him eat it a bit.
 I started my day with my little Balboa Button all curled up on me and that's exactly how I ended it.  Tonight he laid across my chest as I chatted the late night hours away.
