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.

Clearing the Head of Can't...

We all come to that moment when we just need to shut people off... turn the outside world off.  And often it's not because of anything particularly overly stressful but instead it's because somewhere along the line of doing this and that for them and for those, we forget to just be us for our own sake.  We forget to have some down time.
Today I took a break from everyone and everything, work included.
I'm leaving for the Philippines next week and today felt like the calm in the storm, the last break before the second rush of things.
I didn't do much today and my interaction with people was limited to just one.
I did however figure out what potential breed of dog I want my girl to be.
