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.

Weekends Are Still Training Days... Sunday, November 6

Today's Schedule:
8-9am                Hill sprint training
11am-1:30pm    Church
1:30-2:20pm      Lunch with the Captain
3-4:20pm           Personal training client downtown
5:30-7pm           Boxing and weight training

I'm not one to like training with a training partner but I must admit heading out to hill sprint training with Balboa was pretty awesome.  I'm kind of weird in the sense that I never wear my earphones or have my music playing when I take him out for a walk and I'm the same for when I bring him to training with me.  I guess I think it's kind of rude, in a sense.  I don't wear earphones and have music playing when I go for a walk with a friend and so I don't do it when I'm out with Balboa. I know, I know, Balboa is a dog but to me he's a little four-legged boy who just happens to be like a foot tall and he is my friend.  He's a pretty motivating friend too actually.  When I run up the hill he either chases after me or runs right behind me. 

None of my fighters from Team Blue came out for hill sprints today nor did any of my Flipside Fitness ladies.  It's a free and optional training session for both but because it's on an early Sunday morning I don't anticipate anyone regularly showing up.  None the less though, I've extended the offer to them all so that in itself holds me accountable for showing up because I never do know if anyone else will until I do. 

No one was out for hill sprints but Balboa and I today. 

I'm in the process of cutting weight for a possible photo shoot and to see how fast I can drop weight for my upcoming anticipated fight.  The goal is to drop 10lbs within the next couple of weeks.  Slaving away at hill sprints today definitely jump started that goal of mine.  I surely kicked my own butt this morning, it was great, and then I kicked it again with boxing and leg training at System.
