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.

Proved My Point... Thursday, April 13

After a full breakfast and my morning coffee, I then geared up and headed out to Elorde for my scheduled sparring session.

Remember yesterday's water restriction?!  Well,... Weighed-in with a minus 5lbs.

I dropped 5lbs in water weight since yesterday's training.

Coach Garry wants me to fight at a weight 2lbs lighter than today's weigh-in but I argued that my water weight loss proves that I'm still very much capable at fighting in my much lower weight class.

I weighed in yesterday at 132lbs.
Today I weighed in at 128lbs.
I want to fight at 110-115lbs
