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.

The Power of the Metal... Thursday, October 13

Have you seen Beyonce's new music video for her song "Hold Up"?  Go watch it because that's exactly what I felt like walking downtown today.

I got asked to post up flyers downtown for the female-only gym I coach part time at. The weather was nice, I had a warm sweater on and I figured I'd rush it, get it done, and be back in no time.

But then they handed me a stapler.  

It wasn't just any stapler though.

Oh man, this was a one handed stapler that you basically punch the surface with and BAM a massive thick staple is shot out.  Man, oh man, I walked down the street swinging that bad boy once I figured out how to use it and how lethal it actually was.  I punched the hell out of those flyers posting them up and must admit it was as fun as it was stress-relieving and fierce.  

And ya, that was what I decided to write about for today's homepage entry.  I decided that was noteworthy because I was watched, I was cheered on, and I was even snapped in a few pics by those witnessing me doing this.  One guy noted I looked like the happiest flyer-posting person he's ever seen.  He snapped a picture of me and then asked if he could try it.  He agreed, that one handed stapler was definitely noteworthy.
