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.

Pumped up Legs and Pizza

Hit the weights with the big boys showing us all how it's done.
Mad respect for them but see that big dude with the Superman tee on, that's probably the biggest teddy bear walking around the gym.  Recently I voiced an issue to him about this older guy who has been really creeping me out.  He asked me if I wanted him to help.  I thought about it but I think he'd give the guy a heart attack!
 I trained legs today and had a wicked workout despite noting that I'm getting increasingly nosious when I train legs.  I've upped some of the weights, shortened the rest time in between sets and have incorporated tempo training into my reps.
The day was going so productively until this happened... Pizza Pizza.
I guess I could be sarcastic here and say I had a super productive cheat meal.  Dang can my little Polska body pack a mean half pizza... AND ice cream!!!
