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.

Sinfully Delish Eating... Sunday, April 9

Yesterday was definitely a refuel day for me, I ate my body weight in carbs alone at lunch, but then I woke up and remembered I had a family birthday lunch party to attend.  Whenever there's a day with a family outing it's most definitely either a cheat meal day or a refuelled day.  My intentions were to make today my cheat meal day.

Cheat meal day
A day when one meal out of my many meals ignores my macros, skips the clean eating and I simply eat whatever "dirty food" I want.  My go-to cheat meal food is always something high carb, like simply bread or pizza.  Bread is my krypotnite. 

Refuel day
A day where I maintain my clean eating but eat a surplus of calories, especially those of carbs!

The goal is to have one cheat meal every week to a week and a half and then the same for a refuel day.  That's the goal but in actuality I must admit I'm quilt of cheating every couple of days with a small treat -- breaking up my one big cheat meal into smaller cheat snacks. 

Yesterday I had my refuel day and today I had my cheat meal day.  I was doing so good until I wasn't.  My frozen yogurt dessert turned dirty with some "soft cookie caramel" sauce poured onto it and that was okay but then I got treated out to pizza in the evening.  Two cheat meals today... Hmmm.  Two cheat meals and no training.  An overdose of dirty eating on a lazy day of rest.

I'm going to feel all this extra food in my belly tomorrow at training... You just wait! Yikes.
