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.

For the Love of my Waistline

On Thursdays I'm treated to a special breakfast so off to Wildflour I went.
...went to tease my senses and bombard them with all the beautiful sights and smells of all the
beautifully fabulous carbs.
 They're so pretty.  I want one of each... I'm not joking.
 But instead, I'm a good girl, well kind of.
This isn't the healthiest of breakfasts I could of chose but I did share a bit so the calories and fat got passed on.  This is the one day of the week I eat breakfast out so I tagged it as my "happy meal".
 But of course, leaving Wildflour came with taking like a billion pictures and seriously wanting to lick every piece of beautiful pastry they had.  Bread is my kryptonite and seeing all this gorgeous bread but not eating any of it is brutal but what doesn't break you makes you stronger.

(P.S.  I will always love you bread.)
