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.

A Change in My Usual Friday... Friday, December 9

I don't coach Friday mornings anymore at the female-only gym so no more early 5am wake-ups and heading to the gym before the sun and the rest of the city gets up.  I get to sleep in which is a fabulous bonus but it also means I don't get to end my week with the gorgeous Golden Gals and the awesomeness and sweetness they bring to my Friday morning Pilates class.  They're a great way to start my day and a beautiful way to end my week.  I'll miss them.

All I had scheduled for today was one personal training client, lunch out, and then work on Flipside Fitness and my Second Dream.  Sparring at the Fight Club tonight got canceled so I headed out to System to do my own boxing and weight training. 

I killed it with my rounds on the heavy bag and then I killed it on the weights.

Trained hard and then played hard -- headed out to Snakes and Lattes.  Second time going there in two days but this time instead of working on work there I actually played a game.  Usually I go there with my computer and my Second Dream notebook and plug away at planning my next business.  Tonight I took a break from it and has some down time.  That's not to say business wasn't brought up and discussed, it always is.
