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 Makate, Philippines. Life, for me, is better in Asia and I'm so happy here. This 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 and 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.

A Forced Night Off... Friday, April 28

Got in a solid workout at boxing this morning.  I did some extra rounds on the heavy bag, making sure to work on a particular exercise Coach Kristian had taught me yesterday.  

The fact that it was Friday night was irrelevant to me.  The fact that it was a holiday was irrelevant to me too, that is until it wasn't.  I showed up for weight training tonight at 7:30pm only to then find out the hard way about the holiday hours thanks to the lights being turned off at 8pm.  

I found out at 8pm that the gym closed at 8pm, great.

With pre workout already pumping through my body and me already getting a good sweat on, I then had to suddenly stop my workout and leave.

I hate holiday hours!

I instantly had a free night to do whatever I wanted but with working out being the focus of me here, working out was all I really wanted to do.

What was I going to do beyond workout?!  What could I do beyond workout?!

Eat.

So that's exactly what I did.  I checked out a new restaurant here in Eastwood and indulged on some super fresh, ultra healthy eating -- a poke bowl.
