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.

Feeling Incredibly Grateful But Totally Full of Food

 As if the ladies at my gym aren't sweet enough, today one of them baked this amazingly delish Arabic dessert.  It had coconut and almonds in it and it we shared it with everyone at the gym.
 Visited the Captain today and he surprised me with a sweet tooth treat -- some popcorn he brought back from his business trip.  An early afternoon espresso and some popcorn, nice.
 On route to the library today, a Starbucks worker stopped to hand me some free samples.  I can't really stomach the sweetness of Starbucks mixed drinks and desserts nor do I care to take on the sugar and calorie overdose of them but this sample was perfect size.
As for the blizzard, well, it is Wednesday and on Wednesday I often indulge in a weekly cheat meal.
 Today there seemed to be an excess amount of food coming my way but don't worry, I worked it off with some late night boxing and weight training.  See these two awesome men, one is my pastor and the other is Skittles, they both made sure I trained hard tonight.  Worked off those devilish sweets tonight plus some, seriously!
