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.

Sunday is Run Day

 On Sundays I do hill sprint training and as much as I love, love, LOVE the sight of Riverdale Park, I must admit that I grumble and complain about having to do sprints.  It being morning is irrelevant to my grumbling.  This is what Balboa thinks about my complaining.  He only lets me get away with it for as long as he can take a little bathroom break and then he kicks my butt into gear via running down the hill and making me chase after him.
Balboa has been tagging alongside me for the past few weeks worth of hill training and I must admit I really do appreciate his accompaniment and oh boy can this little four-legged boy run!!!  
 After downing a protein shake and sitting through church, it's super nice to meet up with the Captain for a beautiful Sunday brunch.  We just recently found a new Sunday brunch hotspot and have been feasting there. 

It's a cute little diner down by the beaches and I have no idea what it is they cook me up.  It reads that it's an omelette on the menu but it's nothing short of pure fabulocity and a whole whack of eggs mixed with an overdose of veggies and awesomeness.
And speaking of awesomeness, today I received a super sweet gift -- a water jug so big it's called a Mammoth Mug and some caramel macchiato protein shake mix.
