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.

10am      Personal training session with Client #2
11am      Personal training session with Client #3

11pm      Grocery shopping for Christmas baking needs
11:30pm  Christmas baking

I baked a whack of cookies tonight for various boxing clubs and friends for a Christmas gift and I had the brilliant idea to start after training and continue till I was finished.  Training ended at 11pm and it wasn't until about midnight that I started my baking.  I baked well over 120 cookies, ate a few... I'll admit it.  Ok, so maybe it was more like half a dozen, some of which weren't even baked yet.

There, now that I let it drop that I cheated on my keto, let me distract you from my bad with some good... some great... news.

I picked up a new personal training client just recently and today was her first session.  I offered her today's session for free because it was her first session with me.  I had told her beforehand it'd be a little teaser for the training I offer my clients and that she could then decide from it whether or not she wanted to invest and hire me.

Ten minutes after I had wrapped her hands with the hand wraps and had started putting her through a boxing workout, she blurted out "I'm hooked; I love this".  And just like that she signed up for one of my training programs.

Another female about to get fiercer with Flipside Fitness, sweet.
