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.

A Suppliment Kick... Monday, January 9

Today I started using Hydroxycut Black -- a recommendation to me to help kick myslef out of the frustrated state I'm currently in.

The recommended dosage is two pills twice a day.

I took 1 pill after my breakfast (my biggest meal) and then 2 after my lunch because I didn't think I felt the first dosage like I had anticipated.  But then ohhhhh did it kick in.

I have about 40 minutes of my life today that I can't honestly account for beyond admitting that I know I went into super speed warped speed mode.  Skittles had texted me, telling me he was downstairs and that's when I realized my room had been cleaned, garbage collected and taken out, my floors had been washed, laundry folded, dishes washed, and I had even refolded all my clothes in my closet AND dropped by the rental office in the next building over, all in the span of 40 minutes.  I didn't remember doing all that but I knew for sure my little faithful assistant, the ever so cute Balboa, as cute and as smart as he is there was no way he could have done it.  Nice try, sweet wish, but no such luck.

Grabbed some Greek salad and chicken swarma before hitting the gym but by the time I was done boxing I was starving again.  Hydroxycut Black is kicking my butt and firing up my metabolism, yikes.  I felt much more energized throughout my entire workout, both with my boxing and weight training, and then I felt myself considerably stronger during weight training.  With almost every single exercise I did I upped my weights by at least an additional 10lbs.  I did pretty much the same reps as before but with heavier weights and my realization of it gave me an extra pump, enabling me to continue going hard.
