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.

Living Tight... Tuesday, June 13

The stove isn't hooked up yet so I went ghetto for breakfast -- oatmeal mixed with yogurt and then I downed a protein shake.  And with no stove, it meant I had to go out to grab something to eat for lunch too.  Finally checked out those street vendors that line the streets.  There's one outside of my boxing club and I know the coaches go there so today I went there too.  I was pretty impressed actually.  Not only was it super dirt cheap but it tasted really good.

For 90,000Php ($2.43CDN) I got 2 bowls of rice, 2 bowls of soup, and 6 beef skewers.

The wifi isn't hooked up yet so I go ghetto for that too -- hang around the Family Mart for free wifi. Family Marts here have tables with chairs set up so it's not as ghetto as it sounds.  I'm not the only one milking free wifi apparently.
