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.

Decorating My Skin Some More... Thursday, November 17

It's been decided; I'm getting inked... again.  Going in to get more ink down with this particular tattoo being extra special to me because someone else, someone super special to me, is joining in on the ink and getting one done with me.

I'm getting a line from "All of Me", a song by John Legend.

I know the line and it's got it's overdose of meaning to me but now to figure out how exactly I want it punctuated. 

All your perfect imperfections.
All your perfect imperfections...
all your perfect imperfections
...all your perfect imperfections.
...all your perfect imperfections...

As for where, I'm getting it on the forearm on my left arm.  On the one side I have my personal life motto that I had used for Hulk's -- better than yesterday -- and then on the other side I'm going to write the one line from John Legend's song.  Plan is to get it done before Christmas but it's not definite yet.
