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.

Keeping My Mind, Body and Soul Positive

This is exactly where I am.
And this is where I refuel myself for the rest of the week, surrounded by a church of positive, beautiful people who always greet me with big smiles and open arms.
...and after my spirit is fed, I go and feed my body.
Back to eating carbs which is all good but what's with all this spinach?!
I don't know if even Popeye would eat this.  It was quite the overdose.
It's not about dwelling on your past struggles but using them to better yourself.  Learn the lesson and grow from it, and that's exactly what I'm trying to do.
Anything is possible... anything!
Impossible is I'm possible.
