As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Asia February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d 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, 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 left. I returned to Toronto, Canada 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. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I'm at 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.

Food is Fuel and the Way to My Heart

Yesterday I totally randomly discovered this awesome new restaurant -- Picnic.
Some workers were outside, offering samples, and who was I to say no to free food?!  Exactly.
Inside Picnic, there's 6 different little shops -- 1 coffee shop, 2 snack shops and 3 little restaurants.
Today I went in search of this place, Salad Stop.
My body is craving veggies so I Googled this place and headed over to it.
 The place was packed and for good reason too.  The food is super healthy and ultra delish!!!
I ordered the Cobb salad and got some spicy crab dressing added to it.
And then this happened... oh gosh.  I walked by a bakery and the smell oozed into the street.
I eat very healthy but bread is my kryptonite.  I love the carbs... the soft, warm, doughy carbs!!!
 Look at that... just look at that!!! Now tell me you can say no to that.
Trust me, if this were a scratch and sniff picture you'd be drooling right now!!!
 I couldn't resist so I gave in.
Pan de Coco is bread with coconut.  Usually the coconut is stuffed all nestled on the inside but this one looked more like a cinnamon bun and, again, who was I to say no to free food?!  Exactly.
