As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.


After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing 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.
