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.

Tapping Into My Water Weight... Wednesday, April 12

Water restriction 101.

In attempt to see how much I can manipulate my weight in one day, I tapped into my water weight and tested out restricting my water.  

I weighed myself before boxing.
I weighted myself after boxing.

Despite drinking 2Ls of water during boxing, I had sweated out 3lbs of water weight.

Three pounds of body water weight... Wow.  With temperatures at Elorde in the mid 30's and my training stretching out to roughly two and a half hours, it's a crazy drop in weight but not really when you consider the intensity of my training and training environment.  

I drank water to my heart's content during boxing but then limited myself to only the bare minimum with liquids for the rest of the day -- 2 small coffees and about 300ml during evening weight training.

I must have complained about a billion trillion times about being thirsty during the rest of the day!

Coach Garry thinks I'll only drop a few pounds, I'm aiming for 7 but expecting 5lbs.
