As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d 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, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and left. I returned to Toronto, Canada 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. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at now, living in the land of the happy people.

The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Ending the Full Day with a Food Coma

 Juggled a lot... A LOT... of work today, five countries worth of work.  
Actually, six when you consider I had personal training clients here to plan for and whatnot.
Balboa has proven to be the best little sidekick.  No matter where I am in the house, he is always by my side.  Today I grabbed a blanket my mom had made me and I gave it to him.  And while I worked away on the kitchen table he slept on his blanket by my feet.  He's so cute.
Sometimes I feel guilty for just how much I work and how little of attention he gets so I'm always sure to take mini work breaks to show him some love.
Unfortunately him returning "love" means kicking me in the face as he passes out and then tooting.
In between work and working out (or what was suppose to be me working out), I got treated out to an amazing protein-packed meal at a local restaurant that is a meat-lover's heaven -- 420 Smokehouse.
Telling the water to hold ALL the carbs was followed up by him leaving a little note on the bill, nice.
