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.

I Should Have Known This was Bad... Friday, November 25

Note to self: never ever in a billion, trillion, zillion years is it ever a good idea to have a quad shot espresso, regardless of how much you ate, how tired you are or how addicted to coffee you may be. It's just NOT A GOOD IDEA, exclamation mark!!!
Today's schedule:
5am                     Wake up
6:10am12pm       Coaching at the female-only gym
1pm-2pm             PT boxing client
2pm                     Race off to Clancy's
3pm--10pm         Clancy's Boxing -- filming promo and coaching Team Blue
10:20pm              Late night dinner out
11:30pm              Arrive at home and continue Flipside Fitness PR work
I was up by 5am, out the door by about 5:45am and I didn't get home till after 11:30pm. Didn't go to bed till about 1am. It had been a 20 hour day -- a very long day -- so it was no surprise that I'd cash in another cup of coffee. What I didn't anticipate however was the havoc that one-too-many coffee would have on my body, yikes!!! "Have a quad shot espresso", the Starbucks dude told me when I sarcastically noted I needed jet fuel or something to launch me through the rest of my day. A quad shot, really?!?! That dude should be fired seriously becAuse anything I had eaten leading up to that quad shot and anything after just totally got pushed and flushed through my system. Skittles stepped up to be my hero today. I told I needed to eat something super heavy in carbs; my tummy was grumbling and groaning. He brought back pizza.
