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.

Fuel and Friends

In the morning today I did fasted cardio -- running on an empty tummy -- and I returned super sweaty.  My little four-legged buddy Balboa can vouch for just how gym nasty sweaty I got.
Training is always joined by fueling up on food... got to get in my protein!
Eggs and whole wheat toast with fresh avocado from the Farmer's Market, awesome and super delish!
Met up with a friend today for coffee and that totally shifted the Philippines from feeling like a 
place I'm visiting to having a chunk of "home" in it, sweet.
