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.

Warning, Hangry Girl on the Loose... Friday, February 10

I must apologize for anything I may say or do when I'm hangry... Wow.

I thought I was okay when noon had rolled around and I hadn't yet eaten.  I had gone to bed around 4:30am this morning and woke up around 10am so I had only been up for two hours.  I had gone to bed with a belly full of eggs and veggies, thanks to a late night Western omelette I was treated to, so I thought that would keep me for a bit.


Headed into a coffee shop in the Distillery District to do some work.  I had a bowl of chilli in a takeout container with some bread and then I ordered a coffee.  There I stood, super hungry but not sure if I could eat my outside food in the shop, looking for a seat.  The lack of seats and the noise of the place mixed with me being so dash hungry only amplified my growing impatience and eagerness to eat which consequently made me super figitty, wanting to rip open my brown bagged chilli and inhale it in one breath.  So I left.

I get hangry but today it was bad.  I would have sling-shot a spoonful of chilli if I thought it'd score me a seat and a piece of quietness.
