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.

Balboa, the Smallest Dog with the Biggest Heart

Unconditional love, defined by me as someone who loves me despite how gym nasty sweaty I get.
Balboa unconditionally loves me and after my morning run he was the only one who ran to me for hugs and kisses, despite how sweaty and smelly I had got from my run.
I think all the hugs and kisses I gave him after my run exhausted him because by the time 
I showered and sat down to relax for a bit he was already passed out.
An afternoon break from work meant no break from Balboa.
That boy is always on me, literally.  Whether it's sleeping on my lap as I do computer work or sitting on me when I take a quick break on the couch, he's attached to me like an added body part... an added body part that's always demanding extra love.
 Finally got away from Balboa.  Hit the gym for a solid upper body workout... and then returned to Balboa.  Again super sweaty but yet again that was okay by him.  He wanted more hugs and kisses.
