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.

Always Got Business on my Brain... Wednesday, January 26

Before my brain could tell my body what the heck it was doing, I was out the door with a bag full of gear, running down the street to Cabbagetown Boxing.

Six rounds of sparring in the morning with Queen Spar.  Nice.

Sparring at 7am, Cabbagetown, and then weight training at 9:30pm, System Fitness.

It made for a long day, sure, but the energy and feel-good edorphines I got from training kept me wide awake and ready and willing to take on everything in between training.  I left the gym close to 11pm and then headed to Snakes & Lattes to work some more on my business proposal write-up. 

Always working on my business proposal.  

I can't say I relax so much these days but then again I can't say I really care to either.  I am so distracted by my business proposal and wanting to get it done, get it done perfectly.  I've been researching, calling random businesses, brainstorming with business mentors and friends, and jotting down this and that.  This past week I typed up a questionnaire that I plan on distributing to various females I know, to get their input for my proposal.

I slaved away at my proposal today, have already clocked in double digits at the library this week, but when I returned home tonight I wanted to disconnect before I fell asleep.

It's so hard to NOT think of something when that's all you can think of.

...so I watched a bit of Netflix. 

Woke up at 6:35am, went to bed at 2:30am.
