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.

Staying Inspired, Focused and Determined

We all define ourselves differently and labelling myself as "average" or "normal" was never a goal
of mine.  I want to be so much more than I already am so to not pursue my potential
and aim to stretch it would be such a personal disappointment. 
My first reaction when I saw this particular quote was to laugh because back when I was creating Hulk's, eating physical food had gone from being a necessity to a luxury.  It was either feed my construction workers or feed myself.  I fed them and lived off whatever food and coffee friends brought.  I fed off the drive to make my dream come true.
Oh I'm going to get it.  Still dealing with a bit of sensory overload with how to go about it but it's definitely in the works and every day I'm closure than I was the day before.
This is going to happen... just waiting for the pop.
