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

Trying to Get to Bed Early... Friday, November

I anticipated nothing more than being able to come home tonight and call it an early night.  I wanted to do nothing but rest and relax.  Skip the fuse of it being a Friday night and just do nothing.  I had been up since 5am, at the female-only gym at 6:10am and then I had gone full speed until I left training Team Blue at Clancy's which was close to 10pm. 

I wanted to finally get a solid night's sleep.

I got home at 10:30pm.  That's early for me but hardly early for the average person.

Home at 10:30pm but Balboa needed to go for a walk.  And what was supposed to be a short walk outside turned into quite the walk around the block and chat with a Cabbagetown cutie I know -- a friend from my summer days around the ghetto fabulous pool.  Ended up grabbing some pizza and freezing my Polish tush outside while my gal pal and I chatted.

Didn't officially get home till 11:10pm.

...and then company showed up.

"A" for effort but "F" for fail on trying to go to bed early.
