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.

Food is Fuel

 
Large peppers were quite expensive so I'm loving being back in Canada where they're affordable for even us starving athletes. 
 
But this, these pictures, this was my lunch... well, meal #2 of 5 today.
I wasn't going to be late for work today so I threw these items into my bag and headed out the door.  Sure, it was a bit ghetto but fuel is food and I don't need it all pretty packaged (or even cooked for that matter). 
The Captain ended up picking me up after work and we headed out together for a super delish meal out at one of my favourite restaurants by the beaches.
