As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. 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 returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am 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.

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.
