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.

A Spark Plug in the Ring but a Dud at the Fit Festival

 Pictures from today's sparring at Elorde with Coach Arman.
 After training, I headed out to BGC for the Fit Street Festival.
With the exception of the massage company I talked to and was impressed by,
the festival was pretty much a bust.
 So this is all I got out of attending the Fit Street Festival, a cheat on my clean eating.
An iced cap with a peanut butter deep dish cookie.  Don't worry about the calories and fat, I'm sure today's sparring mixed with today's high temperature and tonight's weight training has me covered.
