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.

Working Long and Hard

 Was forced to take the day off training on account of my fresh tattoo so I headed out to do work after work.  I had coached at the female-only gym downtown from 12-8pm and then worked on Flipside Fitness and my Second Dream till closing, 8:30pm-1am.
 This is what a healthy version of a cheese burger meal looks like.
And this is what an unhealthy keto cheeseburger meal looks like today.
I'm not one for fried food and I'm not even one for hamburger buns but my body has been suffering from mad carb cravings so tonight I overdosed on carbs, to get it out of my system.  I ate so many carbs, both the clean ones and some really dirty ones, like a peanut butter cookie, but I can honestly say I won't want a carb for a very, very long time.  When all was said and done, and I had enhaled all those carbs, I sat there sit to my tummy, dry heaving because I thought I was going to puke!!!
