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.

One Rough Day... Thursday, May 4

I had a dream that I was dying and in my dream every time I closed my eyes I could see a bright light -- "the" bright light.  Upon waking up from that dream, I tried hard not to fall asleep again.  It was one of those dreams that felt too real to just be a dream.

There I was, laying in bed, suffering from chills, my bones aching, and having to wake up pretty much every few minutes to go to the bathroom.  Everything I had eaten for the past few days was no longer in my body but instead was traveling down the toilet pipe, going only God knows where. 

I spent the entire day in bed, sick.

I lived solely on Pocari Sweat today.  I couldn't stomach anything.
