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.

From the Bedroom to the Gym Floor

My mom used to joke and say "how can I control my life when I can't control my hair".
This is how I wake up on a daily bases -- mad bedhead hair.  Messy hair, don't care.
Lunch at my all-time favourite breakfast place -- Figs.  Because getting 
soaked in the rain in "fancy clothes" needs a pick-me-upper!!! 
A possible building I have a curious eye on.  I've seen this building for well over a year now but never once ever thought of it as a possible candidate for my Second Dream, until today that is.
I knew I carried a lot of things with me through out the day, for my training and coaching, but tonight I decided to unpack my bag just to see what all that I had in it. And to think I emptied it a bit the other day. I took out my gym shower stuff -- shampoo, conditioner, comb, make-up, face towel. 

Inside my bag...
Sparring gloves
Heavy bag gloves
Hand wraps
Hand pads
Boxing boots
Skipping rope
Agility ladder
Resistance band
Protein shake mix
Shaker bottle
iPod speaker
Speaker cord
Phone charger
Business proposal sketch book
Training folders
Small purse (ID, business cards, money)
Apartment keys
Tall socks
Extra training clothes
Ran into Coach Madman tonight at training.
Running training to resume very, very, VERY soon.... nice!
