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.

From Early Morning to Super Late Night

 
 An early morning of coaching lead to a late evening of coaching.
I trained this fierce female at my gym and then we zoomed off to Clancy's to join the rest of Team Blue but not before we grabbed some gas.  Note how she still has her boxing boots and handwraps on... love it!!!
 Tonight we celebrated a birthday of one of our fighters so a special birthday cake was baked up.  I tell ya, I don't know what Team Red is doing but Team Blue definitely has the team bonding and team support down to an art.  They're right on par.
 Happy birthday and happy eating -- a birthday cake made out of bananas and healthy ingredients, super yum!
 This was happy eating too but it was borderline "dirty" too, and by dirty I mean the calorie intake in those salted caramel pancakes weren't exactly low.  This was a meal for two, a definite cheat meal... a meal to celebrate the start of going hardcore with our training.  Crunch date is February for me.
The way to my heart is through my tummy and pancakes are my biggest weakness.
I didn't actually order the pancakes, he did, but I'm definitely making a "touch-my-pancake-and-die" look... yikes.
 And then, just like that, ALL the pancakes were gone!!!
 Driving home we spotted this silver man.  I have no idea why the space suit but I giggled so hard watching him I swear I thought I was going to pee my pants!
