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.

Moving Forward

 O Christmas tree, how beautiful are you!!!
With my Friday morning now free, I headed out for a special lunch at the Mill Street Brew Pub today.  It's located in the gorgeous Distillery District.
 Had lunch with this yummy man... not sure what was yummier, him or the food.
I'll let you be the judge of my pondering thought -- here's my yummy meal.
It was a keto perfect meal -- lots of healthy fats, a whack of fresh veggies and a delish protein.  In it, there was avocado, bacon, steak, egg, blue cheese, greens, tomatoes, and cucumbers.
 After hitting it hard at boxing and on the weights, I think hit it hard at Snakes and Lattes.  Trying to play hard and not just train hard.  Played Cards Against Humanity.
...and downed another fabulous salad.  This particular salad doesn't look like much and I've never been a fan of salads but this cesaer was loaded with prosciutto and it made me a believer in the power of a good loaded salad!
I took this picture earlier today, it's rather out of the timeline loop here, but I wanted to share it with you because I think it's a beautiful picture and I think this person deserves a special spotlight.
This is Skittles.
He's my biggest business mentor here in Canada and he believes in me even when I don't.  I know I'm blessed to have him in my life and I'm grateful for the pushes, the encouragement and the motivation he's given me that have allowed me to continue in a forward motion. If there's anyone who I want to be like and aspire to be it'd be him.
